Normally I would not try to increase the crowds on a day I am skiing, but those guys are really great and I like to help their business. They open early and close late, just because they love to board and ski, and spread it around. Plus, they spent a fortune fighting the big development on the Pass because it would have ruined the small area vibe of the place. It may not be big, but IMO it's got the biggest heart of any area in Colorado. Historically they have more snow than any other area in the state, and this year they seem to be winning the competition, at least so far.
