You guys just bailed too early in Keystone.. Was there from 9 till 1 yesterday. Too bad since there was virtually no wait in the lift lines for a bit after they opened the Gandola. It did start to get really crowded about noon. They opened Bachelor shortly after noontime and that was fucking gnartastic! Over a foot in some areas! My wife and I was lucky enough to be the first few through all that pow right when it was opened!
Breck was retardedly crowded yesterday. Got there at 7:45 and the gondola was down. Only way up was via bus. The busses did a decent job of keeping the crowd at bay for about an hour, but it filled in pretty quick after that. There was definitely some good fresh stuff to be found in the spots that it didn't get blown away. The wind was burtal. Using our snowboards as sails, the wind had our chair at a 45 degree angle at one point. Was hoping the wind would send the fair weather fans home early, but to no avail. 30+ minute lift line by noon and we bailed.
