Nothing open off of pali lift.

stinks.


Have you seen what the mountains look like? Lower elevations are in bad, bad shape.  Many places are struggling keeping coverage in the lift line.

Loveland still has decent blue cruising, and the lift 8 black bowl and trees are still pretty fun (although you've got to be careful where you exit the trees).  However, lift 4 (and by extension 8) is probably going to close any day now.  The steeps under lift 1 are still mostly open, but looking thin and definitely icy in the morning.  I spent yesterday afternoon on lift 6 and upper half of lift 2 and had a good time, but the bottom was pretty slushy at the end of the day (still skiable, though).

I was at keystone sunday, breck monday and tuesday and keystone again wednesday.  Keystone had many groomers open which were really icy in the morning and soft/slushy as the day went on, but has nothing in the ungroomed department.  I thought it was lame, and I live in wisconsin... 

Breck still has a good amount of stuff open off of T bar, and other than the burn that is the only hard terrain open.  It was really icy monday with a dust layer on tuesday that helped a little bit... Nothing off of imperial was open, exept the ridge down to the T bar top for like an hour on tues.  

 

I'm bummed out this was my experience out west, but it was still more fun than midwest skiing... I would really like to visit some real mountains in winter now!

COB, sorry we couldn't show off our wares.  They usually are in great shape for the end of the season, but this is the worst season for snow on the ground at this time of year in the past 30 years.  Here's the graphic that Joel Gratz sent via email:
