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!
