Blows my mind how someone can have the Epic Local pass or whatever the hell it is and go to Keystone on a powder day.

While they think they're having an EPIC DAY on their 3" or whatever they got in the donut hole, they're probably riding boot deep a few miles up the road at A-Basin.

Summit county snow report. Copper 11" Breck 14" (all lies) Loveland 16" A basin 13" Keystone -1".

I will say though with all the snow this year some of the stuff way out back of Keystone is actually fun and filled in enough to not worry about hitting rocks. But this is the anomaly.

The back side of key and the trees has been really fun this winter. Its a little flat in spots for some of the bigger dumps we got this season, but I'll deal with it. For me, during a storm Abay is hard to ride, I get vertigo really bad there...no contrast at all.

Now copper is a different story. Thankfully I have both passes! Was 100% worth it this season! 67 days and counting....

Copper is the best mountain in Summit by a country mile.

Looking like some storms are rolling through starting this weekend.

Officially hit 100 days at the Vail scanned resorts, puts my season total up near 150 so far.

Had some federal agents at the top of the lions head gondola today. That was awesome..... I'm not a smoker but they were trying to find guilt by association, not happening. They could not find anything but cited a couple people because they would not allow a search. Those tickets should get tossed as there was no evidence other than "an odor" to base their decision on. It was fun since we had a couple locals that are attorneys in our cabin.

Snow was crusty as hell, made 7 lift rides and I'll chill until it warns up a bit.

I love how law enforcement respects our rights. I guess they've never heard of the 4th Amendment.

Vail pulled those peoples passes too. Bunch of BS but they didn't jack with us too much, at least those of us that know our rights.
