They lost money on it due to the amount of pow days we had.

Typical Powder Corp move. They'll bring it back if there is a shitty start to the season. Once destination skiers start canceling their reservations they'll start offering it to try to ease the gap in money they are losing. They want something for nothing. Always have.

Just returned from my trip to Summit Co. and had a blast. Saturday @ A-Basin we were treated to a few inches of fresh. Certainly not deep, but really made for an excellent warm up day. Sunday at Breck was REALLY good! Typical Spring riding. Finally got to check out Peak 6... I was quite impressed. Pretty much just bombed groomers and picked our spots for Sunday. Sunday: lather, rinse, and repeat. Winds were pretty stiff, but we found some shelter doing laps on Mercury SC. Crowds were manageable.

It was the most snow I've seen at Summit Co resorts in quite some time. My only regret is not making it out my usual 4 times this season. I will continue to place offerings at the alter of Ullr for you guys for the remainder of this season.

Had one of my best inbounds days in weeks today. Mary Jane seemed virtually deserted. I was lapping up untracked snow all morning and into the afternoon. There were large areas without even a single track through the pristine snow. I'll try to post some pictures later today.

Sounds like tomorrow might be a repeat of today if the weather works out favorably. Webcams don't look too promising right now but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Yeah, I'm thinking I may have fucked up. I knew I'd be able to get up either today or tomorrow and I opted for tomorrow. We shall see.
