No, all I see is a bunch of guys stuck on a chair lift over a grey sand dune.
(It's springtime again in Paris. 25°C : )

Hmm...not to be a curmudgeon or anything but, why is it that people get so excited over skiing one white ribbon of man made death, amongst probably the highest skier density that place will see all year? Other than that, congrats to Loveland for once again being 1st to open.

well, pihillippe; i dont know what to tell you. loveland's snow report reports 21" in the last 7 days with an 18" base.
i've skied on a 17" base before and that was real skiing, not rock+sand skiing. the skiers up there today could only be upset that they didnt open more trails !

Because if there is snow on the ground, then skiing is ALWAYS better than not skiing regardless of the conditions...

Kinda like the worst day (insert your sport here) is always better than the best day working?

Still waiting for that first TR...I've (so far) decided not to go until they open a second run, but I could be swayed by a sufficiently glowing report.

or, how about a bad day on the mountain is better than a good day at work, in traffic, at the in-laws, etc...

Saturday's report....
Nice hard snow and no crowd until 10:30 or so. Yeh it is only one run but it is skiing.

The parking lot was full on Friday, almost full on Saturday. I didn't get a chance to ski, but it looked pretty good. More terrain should be open by next Fri.

rode up this morning with one of the year round employees, he said 1800 Friday, 1500 Saturday, expected 1100 today. After 10 you needed your helmet to protect you from flying heel-side boarders.

I'm thinking of heading up from Denver on Wednesday to ski...is it worth it (those of you that went this weekend)??

Actually, snow wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Only 1 run open, but they were blowing snow on the run to skier's left from top of chair 1.

For those of you saying Loveland only has one run, that one run is longer than nearly everything we have to ski out here in the Midwest, and already has a larger base! I'd drive 4 hours one way to ski that and camp in the parking lot.

That's like a mystical fantasy land in October.

This thread made me so distraught I went out and bought new boots. (A whole size smaller at that!)

Don't tell me anything !
I'm just jealous, and in full denial, that's all...

There's a reason that those of us in Colorado don't live in the midwest. We're griping about that one run b/c that's only 4% of Loveland's in bounds terrain.

understood, phillippe. i take the optimistic view that i know it will be a short time before i'm up there wondering just how bad the life of a ski bum could be.

Really bad, but, after having spent several years there, most definitely beats Houston.

Looks like Loveland's gonna get snow for the next 4 days!!!!
