Any advice for getting first chair at Copper or where to head? This is my first year having a pass there and I've never gotten first chair.

If you weren't at Breck today you were blowing it. Best day of the year and still coming down.

For Copper I'd probably try catching the Super Bee lift to start. That is the six pack and it takes you to the top of the mountain. Watch for Alpine lift opening, that can be pretty tasty pow runs before it gets bumped out. Resolution and Sierra are the other ones to watch, but some how I doubt those will open. Maybe by the weekend, but I would think those spots are another decent storm out from opening.

I'm kicking myself for not getting up early and at least hitting a couple hours today. Shit is just silent blower right now...so fucking fun.

Structuring some cold wax tonight, my lazy all temp non scraping style does not love all this 6 degree fresh.

Tomorow morning Kill, fingers fucking crossed i70! At least frontage to g-town ...

It was quite pleasant at Loveland today. Nowhere near the snow elsewhere got though. That divide is playing some good defense right now. Just keep snowing! Everything that's open now is nice, we just need more snow to get more open.

I totaled the snow fall in Dillon. Thus far we have accumulated to almost a foot. I live at a lower elevation, so the resorts should have a lot more. We are in a winter weather advisory for 5-16 inches till 5pm on Wednesday. Back Country Riders, FYI they also issued an avalanche warning. Winter!



This is such an improvement, I have been thinking of building a small jump near my building. One of the other complexes has a jib set up already. I think a jump would cause less trouble and go un noticed.

Everything is sliding right now. Hell, you can see shooting cracks all over the place riding the lifts in bounds.

I was watching patrol slide stuff under the BME all day. There was a pile up on Hwy 9 yesterday so I ended up sitting on the bus for over 2 hours while the Basin got tracked out. Another pile up this morning just past swan mountain Rd. We decided to stay an extra day....maybe 2
