Nice- I compliment that older gentleman on his proper "snowplow" form.

Loveland opens Friday also. If you are going to go to an opening day session, I'd recommend hitting them up. Everyone with a freakin' Epic Pass is going to go to Slapahoe Basin. I highly doubt they'll go to Loveland. The shit show will be at least a bit less.

Oh man Sugar. I went there last year when I was home. It was awesome. Mid December and it was spring conditions with dirt spots everywhere. Tons of ollies over mud banks and rock jibs.

LOL, I know Sugar. I'm originally from Morganton. Still never been on a board east of the Rockies and don't really plan on changing that anytime soon.

.....and they charge you like almost $70 for the privilege .

I wonder how hard it is to make ski patrol there? Maybe you just show them a lift ticket from out west or up north and they hire you on the spot?

I hit opening day

Abasin shouldn't even be open yet.

Maybe I'm spoiled, but it wasn't anything remotely close to fun

I'd have figured you of all people would have said fuck it and stayed home.
