OK I'm back!
I know you've all been waiting for this, so without further ado, here are my nominees for favorite runs from my trip (PP/Slush/Ice from Sat. till Tuesday, Pow Wed. thru departure)
Whale's Tail and the Y-Chutes, Breck; Endeavor, Copper Mtn.; Headwall in the Sun-Up Bowl; Vail. (Didn't have the guts to hop off Lover's Leap while skiing without someone else...
LOL that sounds brokeback-ish!)
Union Meadows Glades, Copper Mtn; 17 Glade, Copper Mtn; Shangri-La Glade, Vail; Trees of Resolution, Hornsilver, and Big Rock Park, Blue Sky Basin, Vail (Poor conditions at Keystone didn't give me a real good feel but I bet there is a lot there I need to see when they have new snow)
Far East, Copper Mtn.; Everything off Chair 6 at Breck; Encore, Blue Sky Basin, Vail
Dutchman, Frenchman, Irishman, and Starfire, Keystone (see a trend here? Poor snow early in the week = many many groomers at Keystone LOL); Cimarron, Peak 10, Breck; Northwoods, Vail
Favorite overall runs had to be the trees of Resolution and Hornsilver at Blue Sky Basin, Vail; Copper's Union Meadows trees, and, of course, the ease of repeatedly hopping off the Imperial Express lift for hella-awesome views, sweet cornice hops, and fun steeps.
Thanks Summit County and Frisco, the people there were great, the views ruled, and even the restaurants were sweet! Rasta Pasta in Breckenridge rules- Great skiing fuel!
Even got myself a pair of Croc's to bring home!
One last thing... does the Goat in Keystone always smell weird? Fun place, good liquor, strange odors!
