Default It's about time!

Powder day tomorrow, and the day after, and the day after! Been waiting awhile.

Might try out a few Burton's with the demo being on site this weekend.

Was going to ask if you had the holiday off. Tuesday might be the better choice for taking a personal day.

Mlk day + fresh Pow = shit show. You would have to buy the $10 Rotary ticket to ride that night or work it but then what's the point.

Larger base + greater fresh totals + fewer people (there's still going to be a ton) = Tuesday. Your sleep schedule would get tweaked as a negative.

Now that's a cert III move.

Today was awesome. A lot more and lighter than expected.

Longest line I've ever seen on STAR. It was a mess. Lapped it through the back door three times and saw some of the same folks stuck in line the whole time. I'm guessing a wait time of about an hour. It was kind of funny, people went over there and had no way of getting out, so the rest of the mountain rode very well because everyone was trapped at the bottom of STAR. Warned a few folks not to drop rock garden because of the line up.

All lots full by 10:00am.

the lines on the rest of the hill really weren't that bad considering how many people were there.

i sat in that shooter line once.... it felt like more like 40 minutes

but they ran vista almost no line, the farside line at express was short, short line for stadium.


at the end we actually started lapping stadium and dropping in to trees to the right of herm park and just hiking the 40 ft out once we hit the catchline. freshies every run.

today was great... tuesday and wednesday are gonna be even better - won't be scraping ice underneath by then...

Yeah, that's what I'm saying. All the peeps were stuck at the bottom of STAR leaving the rest of the area in good shape.
