was just there Friday and Sat.
Friday, hella cold. both my big toes froze to the point where it took 39 minutes to defrost 'em and it was crying stylee painful. temp on the ridge that day was a reported 1degree with super wind chill (at one point i came over a lip on a run to find my boarder buddy sitting on the side of the run rubbing his ears and crying. it was that cold. Snow was good, though, and there were no crowds. We were up on 14 riding under the lift (soft, pliable bumps) and over in Prospect (found a pow stash, but the wind kicked in, froze the condensation on my glasses and knocked out my visibility!)
Saturday wasn't as cold (toes still took a beating) and the crowds were minimal despite a Snow Fun Festival. Spent most of the day off The Plunge doing the bumps (again, soft and big). Bushwacker was firm and perfect for GS, if that's your thing.
after 2 trips to T'Ride, I've realized it's one of the few mountains whose groomed runs make me feel inadequate (Bushwacker, for me, really requires some good grippy skis...my 94mm King Salmons felt a little skittish, but they slayed the bumps and crud).
Today, Sunday, it seemed like it warmed up considerably, but it was our travel day back to The D (Denver).
at any rate, it can be a humbling mountain, depending on what runs you ride on. but both times i've been there it's been mellow and i wouldn't hesitate to return (helps that i have access to a slopeside condo, though!)
