Man... traffic ruins the fun of going up for the weekend. We rent a place in Silverthorne and yesterday we stayed up there until 7:30 (after riding Keystone until 3:30, hanging out at the bar for another hour, packing our stuff, etc.) and it STILL took us almost 2.5 hours to get back to the city.

Wish I had a more flexible work schedule (instead of M-F, 8-5) so I could avoid all of these clowns.

I just don't understand how there are THAT many people heading back from the mountains consistently from noon until 10pm.

That said, nothing too special about the snow this weekend (Vail Saturday, Keystone yesterday) but it wasn't terrible. My buddies went to Beaver Creek saturday and said it was nice... they found a lot of fresh tracks. Vail reported 1" that morning, but we were riding in Northwoods and it was at least 6" on top... but super light, fluffy snow. Opposite of last weekend which was a little wetter/heavier.

Yeah, we went down the mountain last night to watch a movie and coming back up at a little after 10 I was surprised how much traffic was still heading back east. I-70E was still pretty damn packed.

Heading up this weekend and wondering where to go. I'm not sure if I went on presidents day weekend last year, but I'm assuming it may be packed up there this weekend. Last weekend wasn't too bad but I've heard some things about this weekend. I've got a 4 pack to Loveland, would it be best to use it this weekend and avoid the crowds at the bigger places?

This is one of those weekends I'll either go up gor an hour in the morning and bail or not go at all.... maybe just film in our big park all weekend with my son. The tourists and weekend warriors usually stay clear of it. Its gonna be stupid packed.

I went to Beaver Creek for a reported 2 inches of snow. Well, that was a fantastic idea. The mountain was very stashy and the trees were great. They were very ridable. It felt so great to shred trees and powder all day. I ventured into previously unexplored areas of the mountain. I also found 3 shacks in one day.

I guess a lot of people stayed home on Sunday or went to some other mountain, cause the Beavs was awesome today. It's such a nice mountain.

Probably just doing a day trip on Friday this weekend. Last time I went on Saturday of MLK weekend and Keystone had filled their main lot and their shuttle lot by like 8:30. No way in hell I'm dealing with that again.

I'm gonna head up Thursday. Probably go early and bounce by 1:30 or 2. Looking at the forecasts, Thursday should be pretty good. Hopefully the storm will speed up a little and hit 8-12 hours earlier than predicted. That would make for a sweet day. As is, Friday morning really looks like the money shot.

Or Hopefully the storm is just twice as big and it dumps on Wednesday night, thursday, and thursday night
