I would take her to the Basin, not because they have the best beginner area. They have good beginner terrain but most of the mountain is more advanced. There should be less people at A-basin and this makes it better. Having people buzz by you or other beginners crossing paths is intimidating to noobs. Breckenridge and Keystone are both loaded with gapers.

They have a beginner hill at the base near the lot, The Molly Hogan lift services it. They have easy greens too. If you get there early enough you could get very close to that lift, set up a chair and crack open some cold ones while your girl learns.

I swear Ski Patrol at Keystone never bothers me, it's mountain watch you need to look out for. Recently I ollied the roller with the no jumping sign and looked to my right. A ski patroller was right there and saw it. She did not do anything. They normally don't give a shit, cause they are far to busy doing more important stuff.

Did anyone notice the yellow signs they put up near the park and Spring Dipper @ Keystone? It looks like someone with schizophrenia is running mountain safety. It's way overboard.

I find it funny the new people to the mountains are bitching about gapers and tourons. Good job guys tell me how "local" you are too!

I hate that no jumping sign at Keystone.



It's so dumb cause there way more sketchy, dangerous rollers. That roller is one of best rollers. I hate not jumping it. It's so alluring. Damn sexy seductive roller of naughtyness guarded by yellow jackets. I don't want to get 3 strikes, but.....

How cute you can copy and paste then quote something. You're a big kid now. Seriously if you can't catch the irony in what I posted you should reach up your ass, grab your head, pull it out, wipe the shit from your eyes, and then you might comprehend it.

I hit it with some 'bold' action too for extra emphasis!

My butthurt is at record levels. I can't believe this shit is happening back to back seasons.

Gonna have to hook up with killclimbz to get in on one of those runs to Buffalo Pass cuz this shit is killin' me.

I think I'm gonna go bury my Charlie Slasher under a bunch of shit in the garage so I don't have to look at it and be teased by it.

Fucking sucks... forecast look dry for next 10 days. I'm seriously considering making a trip to Tahoe later this month so I can see some decent snow.
