Loveland today...AMAZING
Just got back from riding Loveland, and it was insane. I got there at about 9 and rode until 4 and it wasn't too crowded but the snow was amazing. In the morning it was white out conditions and up at the peak was like blinding it was so hard to ride through the waist deep powder when you can only see a few feet in front of you. Then at about noon the skies cleared and I took lift 9 up and hiked the Ridge all the way to Wild Child and and Porcupine saddle bowl. Sooo much powder i didn't even know what to do with myself. All in all it was a great effin day at loveland.

Yessir! I was there as well. Got there about 9:30 and rode until 4. Easily the best day of the season. Easily.

You really lucked out with your timing!

Haha hell yeah man! Did you ride lift 9 at all? shit was crazy. Maybe its normal colorado riding but coming from PA i was blown away at how deep and steep and awesome shit was. And yeah I really lucked out with my timing i picked the perfect weekend and this was such a last minute trip.

compared to the basin it probably was better. They were parking cars at every pull off all the way to Keystone it was stupid busy by 11 thank god I got there early, got the goods, and left.

Yeah I had to park at loveland valley and take a shuttle and people were also parking at pull offs and walking there but it wasn't too crowded

I think chair 9 at Loveland is one of my favorite lifts in the world.
