Of some interest to DonDenver, Bumpfreaq, Mr Vertical, & Noodler:
I was at the BC today but definitely returning on Sunday. Way less crowded than Breck
was on Tuesday. Higher elevation north facing slopes ware decent packed snow. Trails
in the sun tended toward "Spring Conditions" ie icy early then softening nicely with some runs
later becoming mush depending on sun angle & time of day. Golden Eagle was icy on top
& good in middle & lower sections. Runs in woods varied from good to kinda bad (frozen).
Tomorrow I'm at Vail meeting a Vail guide(in our ski club) , Fri may be Abasin? Sunday BC
Monday Vail again. I have cell #'s for Bumpfreaq & DonDenver. Verizon works well.
I'll call early Sun.
Not sure I can make an early meetup at BC on Sunday due to being in Salida on Sat then
driving from Brec Sun am.
Possible BC meeting locations.
1. Beaver Creek landing. (never crowded) BC parking shuttle from Bear Lot (free day skier
lot) makes it's first stop here. A ticket office, ski shop, locker rooms, rest rooms here.
And loading area for Lower BC MT HS quad - to mid-Bachelor Gulch.
2. Picnic tables in front of just mentioned Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch Hotel, The largest &
most opulent Log Cabin ($600 a night) I've ever seen. Bachelor Gulch HS Quad loads here.
3. Alt. later lunch meet site: Red Tail Camp mid-Mt restaurant. Located where Larkspur,
Grouse, & Birds of Prey HS Quads all load.
