|AcroPhile||Montezuma bowl has been in terrible shape all year. Any worthwhile terrain on the back side is roped off. Stick to the front side off Abasin and you'll be good. It gets pretty fun once the snow softens up in the late morning.|

|PaulyMolitor||the upper lift was closed today due to winds. Demo/rent a board if you want to ride the montezuma bowl. The last time I hit that many rocks I was on a bender|

|oefdevilvet||Okay so here's the deal we're on our way to CO halfway through Nebraska. Just curious here, between Breck or Keystone, which would you go to to get as many runs in as possible halfway through the day tomorrow and why or should we just ignore that idea entirely and waiting for a full day? Also want to know when should try to get to the hill on an ideal day.|

|oefdevilvet||Just for kicks, I'll ask what do you guys prefer riding in spring conditions, Rocker or Camber?|

I wouldn't say I've been riding shit all year, in fact at Mount Bohemia up in Michigan I got lucky on the 2 trips I took there this year and got about 10 days worth of powder riding, so it's not like I'm looking for all time snow. I just don't want to end the year with under 35 days of riding. I knew when booking the hotel and getting the lift tickets I would be riding sub-par conditions, but is it really so shitty that I would be pissed when I got there?
I already have my head set on Montana next year, I have heard enough that I think I need to check out Bridger and Big Sky, the only thing dragging me to Colorado is I'm going with a buddy I haven't ridden with or seen in about 5 years who lives in Iowa now and he talked me into it, so I don't want to back out on him if at all possible and he really digs CO but if I had my choice I would go to J-Hole. I'm holding off on MT though until next year(hopefully a better winter) because I don't want to be left with a bad first impression due to shit snow, and I hear they aren't doing much better than anywhere else this year.
Overall I'm going to remember this winter and hate it, I live in Green Bay, WI and it was 82* today, IN THE MIDDLE OF MOTHER F*CKIN MARCH!!!

I just got back Monday from Breckenridge. Was out there last Thursday -Saturday.
Starting out, everything is icy and thin. About 10-12 everything loosens up and its OK......OK. from 1-2 afterwards its slush. The only way to get around it is stay up high but even that is tough.
Went out for my bachelor party hoping to get lucky (no pun intended) and have it dump at least a bit .........yeah that never happened. We made the best of it but the snow was sub par.
My suggestion is to save your money for next year. If your riding shitty conditions there's no sense in driving that far for more shitty conditions .......
