Considering the number of lifts and terrain Breck/Vail are opening back up tomorrow, any predictions which one is going to have best snow and least crowds/lines?

Not sure what's up with the snow reports this week after they closed, phone app reported 13" for Vail and nothing at Breck this morning.

46 inches since Sunday at Breck. They're reopening in 2 hours. You can bet I'll be first in line.

Been product testing for reviews. So been on the Rossi XV, One Magtek, Angus, Nitro Uberspoon, Salomon Derby Powder Snake, Flow Darwin, etc. etc. If I had to choose one of those for an every day pow stick I would pick the Derby hands down. Today I'm riding the Rossi Templar.

Went up for first chair this morning. Ended up going up with some patrol friends since we were there so early. snow was really suprisingly nice. Lunch time and my legs are jello. deep and dense snow. super fun riding though..... The entire front range and their cousins all showed up now too. more people parked here than a holiday weekend. They are all suckers and went to chair 5 and chair 11. We already had that tracked up by 930. finished tracking up lionshead side when the crowd showed.....


dunno why my pictures keep showing u as attachments and not as the image itself.... oh well

That little bit of dirt please. I've seen far worse dirt storms up here and the Basin stayed open till middle of June then. We're fine.

Well glad all the fucks went to Vail today. Breck was fun.
