Day 1 at Vail:
We wake up in Copper and it is dumping...DUMPING...only to get into our car to drive over the pass where it is raining...RAINING in Vail. We thought first, why did we leave Tahoe where we have reeeecord snow to come to tay at Copper wher it is snowing and looking DAMN good, only to drive to Vail where it is raining. Why? because A. we wanted to ski with a bunch of fantastic friends and 2. It go damn great after lunch. Louie, you are a genius.
We started off meeting a few Bears that wanted to be experimental guinea pigs and ski some 2012 Blizzards then off to to the MidVail day lodge. We arrived there at the crack of 10 (the meeting was at 9:30) just in time to catch up with Robins group to ski. We go out on flat light and Robin was a fantastic group leader. Not only did she take us to some great stashes like **** and **** *** but also did a great job of herding us cats. We all know what happened at 11:30, so no need to go into what that was skiing like, bat after lunch is when she really excelled as a guide. Many guides would have been so excited to show you EVERYTHING, Robin took us to the same couple of areas over and over and just varied our lines. SMART girl. At about 3:30 we did mutiny in the favor of beer and headed down to Bart & Yetis.
I know tomorrow (and the rest of the week) will be killer!
