So I got the scoop from a patroller yesterday about the crappy early season WP conditions. He said they couldn't make as much snow this year because the work to burry the Denver Water pipe impacted snowmaking. This led them to open MJ with less snow than usual since MJ had better snow even without any snowmaking.
MJ always has way more snow than WP. Long, long ago they used to report snow conditions at WP and MJ separately. It was remarkable how much more snow MJ always got. It was usually a couple inches more from each storm, but sometimes it was double in the right storm. 7 new at WP and 14 new at MJ would happen a few times a year.
The snow at MJ yesterday was amazing. I took a bunch of pictures yesterday (with @Tony Crocker in mind ). I'll post them later today.
They are opening Vasquez today! I believe all the runs below will be open for the first time of the year.
Slight problem... it's currently -15!!!! Plenty of freshies today for the hearty. Glad I got mine yesterday when it was 20 degrees warmer... yikes it's gonna be cold today.
