This weather sucks. I'm not even buying a pass this year. It's 400 bucks I can put towards a mountain bike so I have something to do next January while I plan my move to Juneau Maybe it still snows up there....

I haven't bought a pass in 6 years. Complete waste of money for me.

It would be funny if it weren't so dead on accurate.

A buddy of mine posted a picture of Beaver Creek today on Facebook:

I am not using my 10 days at Beaver Creek any time soon. Keystone is faring a little better. The last day I rode was Friday and they had some new runs opened. They had Flying Dutch Man open and they also opened Jackwacker.

It's not WROD status anymore. There are more runs open and less people cause they would rather play golf or whatever people do in Denver. Not much in lift lines or crowds. It's pretty quiet. I bought my pass a long time ago during the summer when I had 2 fuller time jobs.

I have only been to Breckenridge once this year and damn it was deader than Keystone.

Really? Maybe it's just weekends, but everytime I check the Base Peak 8 cam at Breck the lines look absolutely insane since they have nothing open. Keystone hasn't been too bad lately, wish I wouldn't have been so lazy and gone this weekend. It's not like conditions are great(like you said it's not as bad as the early November shit show they had going on with one run), they've certainly upgraded from WROD status, but we need some damn real snow.
