When the fuck did Loveland turn into Keystone? Every fucking storm fizzling out and disappointing for the Luv. I am 100% expecting a 2" report on Sunday morning. 6" on the porch, dust on crust at Loveland.

Actually Loveland getting the shit end on storms is pretty normal. Until March rolls around. Then usually they are getting the lion's share. This set up is pretty normal from what I've seen through most of the 90's and early 00's. Not quite the disparity we are seeing these days, but some places would get around 10" while Loveland got only 2-4. Then spring hits and the next thing you know Breck gets 4" and Loveland gets 16". So cross your fingers...

Continued to find fresh snow all day long starting in Sun up, China 2x, Earl's 3x, Pete's and then back to the front. And that is where it sucked, haha. We took 36 back up and went to the front via Northwoods... holy hell it was like a night and day difference between fresh, soft snow in the back... to hard, icy snow on Northwoods. Did a couple laps off of 4 and then got out of the parking garage by 2pm. Just about zero traffic on the way back to the city on Saturday, which I was glad to see, especially since we didn't leave until almost 4.

STILL trying to figure out the parking situation at Vail. I haven't tried the ticket trick yet, usually because I'm too lazy to walk up to the front and get one. Know of some other spots to park for free, but the ease of parking right in the garage kicks when you get off the exit (versus waiting for a bus, etc.). Damn that $25!
Ticket trick didnt work for me....pretty sure there are weight sensors. I thought about going back to my car every 2 hours and driving out and back in but youll still end up paying 15 if you arrive between 1-3, plus if you wanna go to Blue sky you dont have enough time. Fucking cocksuckers are making so much $$$ from those garages. Honestly if I had to pay to park there everytime I went it wouldnt even make the epic pass that great of a deal. The busses are a pain in the ass and not a short ride with 5+ stops compared to any other resort. I need to make a friend in the garage.....

Fucking Mongolia inner and outer were deep today. Bluesky was nice. I took some video but apparently it didn't record while out back. I have some north woods shots to show snow quality. I'll post it when it's loaded to vimeo

We were just tooling around while waiting for his coach to show up. Then my camera would not record when we were out in mongolia and bluesky.... Sorry its just cruiser video but you can get a picture of the snow conditions....

Argo thanks for the video - still looks like pretty good snow for the front side.

I have a buddy in town this weekend and we'll probably ride Vail on Sunday, maybe Beaver Creek on Saturday.

Man am I sick of paying for parking though.

The last time I went to vail it was super packed and I was parked in the garage. When I was leaving I saw that people were parked along the road right outside of the garage. The one you turn off of to go into the garage in vail village. Is it ok to park there at any time or just when the garages are full?

Its basically right outside of the garage so I would much rather park there for free than park 50 feet from there in the garage for 25 bucks.

Only when the garage is full. They will tow you other times.

Thanks for that. Pretty much what I figured since I haven't seen cars there any other time I've been there.
