Thanks for the tip - I just made a rationale for visiting Amarillo, TX for work which may place me in range to Wolf. Ideas, ideas, ideas! Thanks!

If you decide on Wolf or Durango, let me know...down to meet some new people. Both locations are about 4 to 4 1/2hrs away from me. I don't drink so I can drive pretty much any where. Wolf has awesome condition and get dump on regularly (rode on day 2 of one the earliest opening day), kinda boring after sun goes down...Durango is a full resort experience, fun night life.

Hey, yeah I have a new interest in the area but doubt I'll book the miles from Denver down there but honestly if there was something going on there and not CO, I'd switch. Fingers crossed but I think I saw A-basin's summit night temps at 27degree which is giving some minimal comfort at this point.

Breck opens the day I arrive on 11/9...which could be good to release some outflow away from A-Basin??? Dunno

im definitely up for meeting up. I like to ride A-basin more than most.as said before on here it should be quieter especially since brek opens that day. i live between denver and boulder. early travel is a must, i hate the I70 crawl at 8-9am, id rather get their early and wait for first chair.

I just saw some posting on Facebook that couple of places got some dusting. So, I'm open to travel...got some paid vacation time that needs to burn off or I won't accumulate anymore time next year.

Actually yes, absolutely.

A-Basin is only crowded before/after the other resorts open/close, and on the major holiday/tourist/weekends. Especially that first weekend Breck opens - A-Basin will be empty.

If its epic and dumping Loveland pass will be closed and you'll have to drive around on i70 through the tunnel (no big deal).

There was a powder day last year (I know right ?) where Loveland pass was closed. I decided to make the trip around using I-70, and Holy Shit ! There was maybe 50 cars total around 10:30 Felt like a had the place mostly to myself. Granted it was a weekday also

I seriously doubt you are going to have the I70 crawl on November 9th. That is the last thing I worry about that time of year. Now a month later with frequent storms and maybe. Generally speaking though the I70 shit show doesn't really start up until just before or right at the holidays. Then it's shit show city until April.
