I went up to BC today.

It was nice. In some spots it was knee deep. I was able to get there near 9:am. It started to back up in Vail. It was one of my longest most vertical feet days.



I took this picture when I pulled out my Itouch.

Made this edit from last weekend at Vail. Video doesn't do it justice.

Heading to the beav tomorrow morning. How is it looking since the 8" they reported Thursday morning?

Hoping to find some stashes or for it to at least not be moguled out.

I normally can find fresh lines all over the place @ BC but many of my stashes had lines in them. The trees are probably still good, soft but not with fresh powder. Still some powder out there if you look and know the mountain.

There is a winter storm warning for Beaver Creek starting at 12 am tonight all the way to Monday . Maybe the snow will come down on Beaver Creek for you tonight. I will be gassin up the truck on my next day off and going over there as long as the snow falls like predicted, or Vail. I was not planning on going to Beaver Creek on Thursday but was up unusually early and looked at the snow reports. I was like, 2 inches or 8, hmmmm.

No winter storm warning for Summit

Yeah I'm going to hit BC tomorrow with some friends and maybe Vail or BC again on Sunday depending on who gets the most snow. Hopefully we can find some fresh stuff. Doesn't have to be knee deep, just don't want to hit ice moguls on every single black run I try.

The reports I heard said that 8" was bullshit. Unfortunately, you're gonna beat the next storm there. Supposed to get good snow Saturday afternoon through Sunday morning and hopefully light consistent snow through Monday.

I dk if it was bullshit, kinda hard to tell on the main runs since it was so tracked out but heres some of the stashes I was able to find. Pretty damn deep!

Keystone actually wasnt bad today,not too many bare/icy spots. Although I was in A51 for most of the day..

Looks like a lot more than the 8" they reported. Always better than the opposite scenario where they report a good amount of fresh and when you get there it barley looks like it had snowed the day before.
