Sk, I take it they were dropping from the top of the divide back into the area by chair 8?

Access from 8 or is 9 open and they can walk across?

Either way, that sounds like a real recipe for trouble.

I haven't done any of that stuff and these days I am probably not going to.

I finally picked a trip out here when it is snowing!

Now to figure out how to get around Breckenridge without skating too much.

I haven't been there in years!

Skating too much? There's 1 and only 1 cat track that catches people and that's between 8 and 9. Even then there's a giant hill before it that you just point and go down. You might get stuck coming out of Mustang Bowl but even then that's your own fault the cat track goes down hill and if you point it out of the trees you'll be fine.

Last time I was here was at least 10 years ago. ( except last year when they reopened in April. But with only the one peak open it was hard to get stuck too bad!

It's a totally different mountain I am sure.

I will be in Green Pants, Black Coat, Carbon Bern Helmet on an SL.

If ya see me, Knock me down or something so I can put a face with the BA legend!

Headed to Vail tonight. Been watching the weather all week and it looks like this weekend is going to be pretty sick.

They were running the ridge cat and allowing people to drop Tickler or FoD.

Tickler is a pretty short run, its just steep, I just have the willies

Seen too much video of shit going and heard of it this year....also the slides on all the bowls inbounds are ongoing and impressive.....

I have alot of confidence in how LUV's ski patrol handles themselves and generally don't rush to open anything. There is just too much bad news lately plus good snow on all the lower shit....../pussy

Got an inch or two of snow at Purg before the lifts closed yesterday. Today is my break day. Even before the snow started I had a blast. Hit the "black" by the 6 person chair at the bottom and was awesome. Until I got to the icy bottom section and slid down on my ass lol. Practiced straight airs in the bottom park. Also got good air off some rollers and lips. I'm really having fun here, despite how small Purg is and how little new snow there is. One of my skier buddies got stopped for speed/jumping so that was interesting too.
