The last three days have been really good, but it's been brutally hot! We are starting to loose terrain and it definitely takes some creative terrain choices to get the most out of the skiing.
I would probably cancel if you can, without loosing too much money? If you can't, the groomers will still be good up top and the bowl will be good till the end of the season?
Got it. We are to head to Aspen for all of next week and trying to determine if its worth our time. Plum TV is saying its going to continue to be warm. (Not Good) You may not spend much time at Buttermilk, but my kids dig the parks. Any idea what the conditions over there are like?
I haven't been to the milk this year, but it's got to be getting thin in the park? I think if you just want to ski groomers you might be ok? There is always stuff to do in town and Blazing Paddles started running the CO?
I have airline reservations for both Aspen and Highland's closing days and I don't think I'll be using them?
I skied Buttermilk and Highlands last week. My game plan was to ski the frozen groomers in the morning and ski the slush bumps in the afternoon. If you like these kinds of conditions, you'll be fine. Runs are starting to close but there should be plenty of good skiing still open. Also note that Buttermilk is scheduled to close for the season real soon.
FYI, I also skied at Breck, Vail and Beaver Creek. I think Aspen is doing the best of the bunch. Vails back bowls wont last long nor will Brecks bowls.
Well we ended up pulling the plug on the whole trip. Too far to travel for sketchy conditions. (Wisconsin) Headed to Florida instead. We will try again next year.
Thanks for the help and eyes on conditions.
