Well today was a pleasant surprise at Breck. All the spring breakers were either too hung over from power hour or just don't understand the joys of powder.

Just checked the wolf cam, wow there's a shit ton of people there. Hope most of them are gone by Sunday. I don't know how I'd handle a lift line...

I've been enjoying hike-to steeps with tons of smooth untouched softies days and days after snow for the last few weeks at the Love, its been epic. I won't tell but I will take you.

Yesterday was 2x 2 hour laps basically (had a large crew that easily doubled the time though). Branching into the backcountry should be rewarding...(man I love to hike around the resorts tho...)

Today

Keystone > Beaver Creek. I went over to Beaver Creek and it was awful. That warm day must of killed Beaver Creek. It looked like early season. It was the dreaded fluff on crust. There were bare spots and it was miserably windy.

Drove back over to Keystone and had a decent day. The conditions were very windy, but there were some fresh lines.

The lower elevation has affected Beaver Creek. Over here in the summit area we are at a higher elevation so our conditions are a lot better.

Disapointed about Beaver Creek.

RMS you are talking what is fairly obvious this time of year. If sun is on the slopes, going higher is where the best conditions are most likely to be.

Has anyone been to Winter Park recently? I haven't been there in years.

those little letters say "drop in"



Soo good. Got first tracks today on a south facing slope. Showed up from 1-2:30 and got 2 of the 4 runs the cat made. We've had so much good sun AND snow lately it was just knee and waist deep butter.

I'm riding every weekday at the Love the next few weeks, holler for a mob tour...

Pretty sure they've done as well as Loveland and Abasin for being as far out from the rest of Summit as they are, but then again as you go north Steamboat has kicked more ass then most places the last few years. I'm not a fan of the joint but it's not like I'll go and have a bad time. Just go! Try not to get stuck on too many cattracks!

Looks like late tomorrow through the next few days we'll see some snow. Post season is going to be fun at A basin.
