How shitty are A basin and Keystone after this dumping? I'm going to Summit County for a week on the 26th and I already have the epic 4 pack to those two resorts.

Well Keystone is always shitty nothing can fix that. A basin should be doing a bit better, Breck seems to be the place that came out ahead in the storm though, Copper was doing good beforehand so this only made them better.

Made a quick edit from Sunday (16th), which was before another 19" fell at Vail. Wish I could have been there today / yesterday / Monday, but at least it felt good to find some fresh soft stuff.

Go easy on me. First time editing, GoPro held in hand (need to make a pole mount). Also, I'm pretty sure someone has used that song in a video before, but ahh well.

Copper today was kind of a bust, only reporting 2". Still a good day though, I got first chair on super bee. Got a couple decent runs in and then was in the right spot when some new stuff opened up over by timberline.

Last night and today were a bit of a bust for most spots. Whenever the forecast is calling for snow for both Summit County and the eastern plains, beware. Someone is about to get the shaft. Those two areas very rarely get good snow out of the same storm. Super cold temps also aren't usually conducive to good snowfall.

Hindsight is always 20/20, but looking back we should've seen it coming. All the factors for a disappointment were there.

Breck was what I like to call "Le Suck" this morning negative temps and snow dropping but nothing new opened early as they were blasting the fuck out of the mountain.

I'm not gonna complain. The last couple of weeks have been very helpful. There will always be a couple of storms that bust. As long as we stay in a good pattern we'll get ours eventually.
