I gotta ask - what do you do that you can ski weekdays so often? I'm jealous.

In my case, I work in theatre as an actor/director (mostly evening work) and teach skiing at Copper.

Interesting. Do you continue to frequent Loveland after Copper opens?

I wish I had a job with more flexible hours. It really kills me during the season when I miss all of those big dump days.

I can probably make it to Loveland Friday, but I doubt I can be there by 9 (its a bit of a hike from Steamboat), any chance of organizing another meeting time as well (like mid-day).

MANUS: There's only one run open so it shouldn't be hard to find us. Try to get there by 10:30 if you can. A lot of us knock off by noon or so (snow's much better early). I wear a blue and red jacket and a blue helmet/silver Briko goggles. Look for us!

NOODLER: Not too much. Whan Copper opens I'm there full time. Occcasionally elsewhere. Where do you usually ski?

I don't know yet if I'll be able to make it tomorrow (Friday). Probably a 50-50 chance. Anyone going Sunday?

I ski Copper and Winter Park (generally more Winter Park). I'm debating heading over to Loveland this weekend. Which day would be better on a weekend there; Saturday or Sunday?

Both about the same. Have fun!

Does Loveland still only have that one loop open? And has anyone hit A-Basin to see what they've opened?
post #13 of 18

This weekend...

Looks like the basin has the Exhibition lift running and only High Noon open.

From their website, Loveland appears to still have only the one run open, though it looks like they're making snow on the run next to it, and a couple shorter runs far over lookers left - is this the bunny hill area? (Never been)

So, I am trekking up this weekend, planning on hitting both A-Basin and Loveland, not sure which on which day though. Who's going to be where when?

As mike_m stated, with only one run shouldn't be hard to find people - I'll be wearing khaki pants, blue columbia jacket, silverish/gunmetal giro helmet, and will probably have my bca stash pack with me (I know, a pack sounds silly for so little terrain, but given I'm driving up from Abq, I'm going to lap that wrd for all it's worth! I dehydrate quick and don't want no stopping for water )

If I don't run into any of ya, have a great weekend!

I skied A-Basin yesterday, and Loveland today. A-Basin had about half the amount of slope and twice the amount of skiers. Loveland was making snow all day today, appear to have another slope with enough snow on it to open. I would expect more terrain open by the weekend.

Anyone skiing tomorrow (Sunday)? I can be talked into either the basin or Loveland, depending on conditions and open terrain (prefer Loveland since I have a pass).

I was at Loveland today for a clinic. Spillway and Lower Richards are now open so you now have two ways down. That plus A-Basin being open thins out the crowds a lot. It snowed off and on all day so the conditions were pretty nice.

I was at Loveland this morning and met up with dp and SCSA. Conditions were great till about 10:30 on Mambo and Home Run. Started getting icy after that, but when the snow started again a little while later, apparently things turned out better (I left around noon). Spillway was icy down the middle but had some nice soft stuff on the sides later. I took one run down Richard's Run in the morning -- very icy, so I stayed off it after that.

Crowds were not too bad. There was a time around 10 when the sun came out, the sky was blue, the snow was soft, and the crowds thinned out -- got some great turns in.

Unfortunately Faisasy left before it started to get good again- it started to snow again, and by 1:00 conditions were getting quite good (for October, anyway). My first encounter with SCSA- he and I debated whether he was a legend in his own mind (his) or a rumor in his own time (mine)! a very enjoyable day. Richard's was getting pretty nice by the time I left, although there were still plenty of slick spots. I expect that things will get even better by tomorrow, as they are expecting cooler temperatures and more snow tonight.
