The "January thaw" is more referring to a general lack of snow. It's almost always colder than a witch's titty in the CO high country in January.

I've been hitting Keystone most the week, we still need way more snow! Too many people this weekend, It was like an obstacle corse.

The gate to A51 was closed too..

Looks like we get a dry out for a week or so. This could be a good thing. We always get a "break". Usually when the snow returns it sticks around for a good long while. Fingers crossed.

Keystone has been mad for winter break. I had about 4 people randomly merge right in front of me. At one time an entire family of 8 skiers all stopped right in front of me, blocking the entire intersection. WTF? There have been very large gatherings of gapers on the runs. Parking has been a bitch but I started taking the bus anyway.

I did not make it out today. It probably was quiet in the morning like Christmas morning. It's probably slammed now that people are getting over their hangovers. This week will be busy because a lot of people take their ski vacations now.

I totally forgot how annoying gapers are. There were not this many last season. The plus is area businesses are all very busy making lots of money. They need it!

*hint, Arapahoe Basin is quiet since they do not have much open. I parked in the main lot a few days ago. They are top to bottom and were running the Pali. They still just have the early season park set up.

There have been way more gapers and tourons this year than last so far. we have been super busy with people breaking themselves to pieces. Businesses are finally making their money along with the waitstaff. Two restaurants have put down record days. Snow has been ok over on this side of the pass.

keystone kills.

my buddy and I were lucky to get away with only a concussion and broken leg last year...

it's the capital city of snow tourons and carnies and the ski patrol wants to bust your ass!

a51 is pretty tight as long as you go there and just lap it.

I came up with one that I have not heard yet, due to the extreme increase of gapers on the hill the last two weeks. They do something I have been calling the "pizza slalom" down blue and black runs. They should really be on a learning slope still but insist that they are good enough to get down he expert run. We will be cruising down the run and low and behold they are zigzagging all the way across the mountain totally unpredictable.
