I awoke to 4" on the driveway here in Boulder. Copper reported 7" new on top of yesterday's 7". Beaver Creek reported 10". OK, Summit friends, how's the skiing?!

Unfortunatly, I couldnt surmount the 8hr snow driving roundtrip

But things are looking much better than last week- thats for sure.

Talked to my kid today. It's his birthday, 20. Just spent the last three days skiing Breck and the pass at Loveland. Said the skiing was good for what was open and the pass hadgood snow. Today he skied Steamboat and said it was awesome with thigh deep stuff on some newly opened runs and cut the ropes at Pony express pioneer Ridge area where it was at least 3 feet deep.

Copper was nice today. SuperBee opened at noon, but none of the runs under it were open - just the Skid Road traverse near the bottom. They did it just to speed up things up, although the lift lines were only about 5 - 10 minutes long.

I went out early in the morning and had fresh tracks under Excelerator. Then dropped down onto Main Vein, which just opened yesterday. It certainly skied like there was A LOT more fresh snow than 7". It felt more like 12".

Hopefully more terrain will open soon, it seems like a lot is ready to go.

You guys in Colorado have it made. Here in New York City it was something like SIXTY degrees today. I don't know when we're going to get some normal weather.

I'm having Colorado envy.

So the last 6 days in Summit CO were outstanding. Only had one day where conditions were complete crap, but it's been snowing a little here and there since Thursday, with a lot of nice fresh coming yesterday and today. The tree runs were incredible! Had to finally make the drive home today and it was slow going but passable.

...back to it then~!

Enjoyed my first real day of skiing Sunday at Keystone, crowds gone. Lucky enough to be at the right spot when they dropped the rope at North Peak for PowderKeg . Amazing amount of snow for this time of year. What a difference a few days make.

Nice! Got a first-hand report from a member of my staff this morning. 24" at the Beav with shots waste deep. 6.5 hours to drive home, though...!

Beaver Creek picked up another 11" last night making it 38" in 72 hours. They already have a 60" base at the summit. Too bad there isn't much snow the rest of the week. I would have liked this to keep up for a while.

Copper was totally empty today because the Summit Daily announced that the American Eagle was closed. After awhile, the "American Freezer" lift got way too cold, but it was nice to be able to carve up the entire trail without any carnage!

Whoa, what happened? I've never been on any of their lifts and they "freeze" up. I've always encountered the occasional stop here and there, but never just shut down.

Apparantly they were doing some maintenance on the Eagle. It's funny, the few people who were doing the runs off the Flyer, myself included, were going top to bottom, rarely stopping. You don't see that very often on that run. But if you stopped for even a minute, it was wicked cold! I kept wanting to go back up for another run, because it was so wonderfully empty, but I felt like I was turning into a grape popsicle!
