There is a reason why they give away free trips the first week of December.

You guys are bitching about the snow I'm bitching about the death of commerce in Breck. Everyone was hurting last year now they're really hurting.

You just need to branch out into whores and meth in the lean times.

Ski school instructors, food service people, and small business owners are all really hurting right now. At least Dew tour will bring people regardless of whether there are enough slopes to accommodate them. We need a good dump so bad...

Here ya go...


People in the winter who plow snow for a living bitch about how they're going to make ends meet when it doesn't snow. Tax payers bitch when it snows so much that they have to pay the snowplowers overtime.

Is nobody ever happy?

Ya, hard to hold a job when the tourists don't come. Bad seasons make me appreciate them more. Maybe I won't spray them so much. Hey tourists there is more than one reason to visit, we got legal weed! Can't have that in Utah.

I rode Keystone today, it was quiet, but Ski Patrol looked very busy. I saw them five times with the meat wagons taking people off the mountain. The conditions are tough and hard, people are getting hurt a lot. However there is only one no jumping sign and no traffic fences on the runs. Often the no jumping sign is unguarded. They are almost done with the parklane jumps and the Schoolmarm side is not so bad since it is fresher and in the sun more. They have Peru, Ranger, a magic carpet, Zuma, the gondola and the summit X open. Summit X is closed during the week. I am finding a lot of nice rollers to hit.

Looking at Lake Dillon is scary. There are islands I have never seen before. On Swan Mountain Road you can see a lot of an old road that was flooded when the damn was built. I have been thinking about taking my dog for a walk there.
