I am actually going to conquer that beast soon, Steve. Already doing the West Wall and back bowls of A-basin. I need one or two more year of seasoning, then that bitch (or at least its green and blue runs) will be mine!
And to answer those who are curious, I have skied twice a year ever since I discovered this awesome sport, taking at least 3 private lessons each time. I am skiing most of Breck, sans the bumps and the upper bowls (but I did do a lot of peak 10). I am taking lessons from Leon Littlebird in A-Basin (very highly recommended). He claims I am a level 7 skier, but he's probably being kind. I am working on a Breck review, but school and work impede my progress on that project. On a sad note, my wife tore her other ACL again, and she is now a spectator, though she supports my ski trips (she is awesome).
Snow days map (thanks core2) does not brighten my day as both Summit county and Tahoe area do not look like they are going to be above average. I really do not want to ski in ice or mashed potatoes anymore. It is not fun, and dangerous. Almost killed myself when the mashed potatoes grabbed the back of my skies as I was going 30+ mph (yes, I was leaning forward...I think).
Because my wife is no longer skiing, I need to go somewhere where she is entertained. Summit country and Tahoe are great for that. Unfortunately a lot of the best places do not have a quaint city nearby, instead they have a village, which is usually pretty cheesy.
Really don't know what to do. I think I just may go back to Breck and take my chances. What I love about Breck is that I can get accomodations that I can ski in and ski out of, with a kitchen, for less than $200. Anybody know another place that offers good ski in and ski out?
