Hey guys which mountain (Keystone v breck) is better for a beginner. I've been to Breck but not to Keystone and keep hearing mixed things. I'm guessing there isn't a big difference but breck looks bigger so I assume it's busier.

Keystone is definitely more beginner friendly. Get on School Marm and enjoy 3 miles of switchbacky goodness!

I can remember a season riding 2 to 3 feet of pow on opening day at Loveland. It was Oct. 5th.

2 or three runs as usual but no patrol on duty so I just ducked ropes all day and rode untracked. End of the day coming down to the bottom ski patrol sees me coming out of the roped off area and I'm like fuck I'm screwed so get ready for the ass reaming, dude waves to me, says enjoy the pow. Then promptly starts yelling at all the little jib kids behind me that couldn't ride pow.

Drove up vail pass this morning. Made a couple of sketch runs about 100 yards each. Drove down to some shit hole town 80 miles east of Denver to pick up a land rover for a friend and back home now. The west side of Eisenhower got a lot more snow than Loveland and vail got a lot more than summit From the looks of it.
