I'm there a few times a week. Overall, snowfall and base depth have been relatively good this year compared to other resorts in the front range area but all it takes is one warm day followed a cold day to mess up all the snow. Saturday was one of the worst days of the season in terms of snow quality. I went home after 2 runs. Monday was much better after the weekend snowfall but you could definitely still feel the ice underneath the fresh snow. I don't think Panoramic or Eagle Wind lifts were running on Monday so it probably made for some good riding up there on Tuesday but I wasn't there. I think I'm going back up to Winter Park today for 2-3 hours and hopefully find some leftovers to ride.

It started dumping around 5am this morning. There was 5-6" on my patio when we went to the mountain. It's still just puking snow.... Tomorrow is probably a good sick day if yo have it. I rode for 2 hours and drove to summit/frisco, snows coming down there too. I'm just got back home and you can literally watch it piling up on my BBQ pit and hand rail. It's pretty wet snow so first 2 hours tomorrow will be where its at unless the temps drop significantly

I'm going to either Breck or A-basin on Saturday. Which do you guys think will have better conditions?

Fantastic day today Good snow at Vail to start the day (much more than reported). Snowed off and on all morning and then fucking puked from ~11:30 until 3 ish. Fresh refills all afternoon.



Coming home took 3 1/2 hours. Vail pass closed at ~2pm (didn't open till 7:23). We said fuck it at 3:45 and went down to Leadville and back up to Copper to bypass the closure. A tandem semi was broke down just before the tunnel which caused weekend like back ups.

Great day and the good snow made up for long drive home. Today was solidly one of my favorite days of the season. Snow was a bit wet so tomorrow might be icy as fuck if it gets really cold tonight.
