This morning was amazing for this time of year. We got there at 8 right before traffic went to shit, got a couple quiet hours in.

Face shots and pow butterz all day.

Tomorrow looks sunny, can't wait to head back up, my body is beat up from today, sleepytime....

The holiday crowd has been particularly crowdy this year compared to the last couple....holy base areas and parking shit shows.....

Plan was to go to Vail but 70 was such a shit show that we diverted. Ended up going to Key First 4-5 runs in the outback were great but then the wind picked up and the holiday locust descended.

Convinced all the tourists are going anywhere but the Vail owned resorts this year. Lines haven't been as outrageous. Enjoy them there touristas.

somebody has to pay for the place to stay open while I ride it by myself the rest of the year!

despite the crowds and traffic things have been pretty chill all around. I attribute the crowds and vibe to the excellent, persisting conditions.

oh and I almost forgot I drove by the Kine Mine - they went retail -on our way to grab a bite at Smokin' Yards in Idaho Springs and there was a pretty huge line. Interesting times.

Aren't they one of the first 14 that are retail in the state? I know Breck has 1 on Airport rode, one in Frisco, and another in Silverthorne. Guess now I'm going to have to live off my 'medicinal' cocaine sales.

Good to know Kine Mine went retail. I'll wait until things calm down.
