One more week of that and the entire mountain will go into free fall melt. Last weekend should be fun. Sounds like it will pretty much be a Lake Reveal skimming party, which is the way it should be.
Looking forward to reports from today.
I was passed by this guy on his way up to ski
Exo to Pali
Spacin' at the Basin with the Grateful Dead, Filmore East, April 1971 and a Sessions Black
Looking towards Breck from the Dam Road
I started at 9:00 as I didn't know they opened at 8:30 on these special Fridays. It was still nice. I stayed to groomed which was 2 - 3 inches of corn and only slow where it was brown down below.
I think EpicSki should get a spiff for all the pass' sold to members this time of year.
We had several Bears buy pass' at Abasin for Mother's Day. They can use it two years in a row which more than pays for itself.
I LOVE that place!
Ramrod stayed open through today! Lots of terrain open (for June 8th) and the snow held up surprisingly well with the cooler temps. I skied on & off all day and had a blast. Even saw Al and thanked him for keeping the bumps alive for one more weekend. :)
Also got to hang out with this little dude, future ripper for sure ;) https://twitter.com/kurtbook/status/475665480640761858
Thanks for all the pictures, so many people having a blast. There is something about watching last turns, the season winding down, the bumps running down the stream that was the beach that makes me wish i was still there. A Basin, The Legend.
First chair is nice but sometimes last chair is best.
