While whatever this shit is that has been going on, we just kept riding knowing eventually it would come. We just enjoy sliding on the snow down the mtn. 32 riding days later we are still riding....

Over in the chair 3/4 area there is enough to ride the trees. Between vail village and lions head there isn't.... Just the upper mtn.

One of the guys I ride with every morning does a video report for the vail daily website. Go to Vail Colorado | VailDaily.com News and find "on the hill". It's up every day by 10 am with a first run.

Glad that we've had a few days of continuous snow. Beaver Creek has had 2 feet in the last 8 days. These places are starting to open more terrain with the new snow, and I'm just hoping that the cold temps stick around as well as the "pattern" that now has CO getting some snow (instead of the previous pattern that was pushing everything North).

I was at Keystone on Sunday (I wanted to go somewhere else, but was overruled) and it wasn't too bad. Super cold though... my face was freezing. I need a bandana / balaclava or something.

Argo - what type of pole does your buddy use in those Vail Daily videos? GoPole or just a broken ski pole, or something else?

He just uses a broken ski pole with a home made mount.

This morning was awesome. 4-5 fresh laps on top of chair 3 and 4. Probably 8" up on top 6" mid mountain and base of the mountain.... The whole front side should open this weekend depending on this storm and most likely game creek from the looks of it.

Also from checking out the vail website where the hell do you park if you don't want to pay crazy garage fees?

Yeah I figured breck was definitely a no-go this weekend. Trying to decide between just making the shorter drive to keystone or abay or getting up super early and driving out to vail. Or with snow daze going on at vail would beaver creek be a better option?

It just looks like from that video vail has some nice conditions and decent terrain open now. I'm getting tired of lapping the same stuff at keystone.
