I had a meeting in Boulder, so I stayed over to ski on Saturday. Beautiful weather, good snow, a couple of reasonable slopes, and surprisingly light crowds. There were even a few skiers in costume. You should have been there!
The only time it was a little crowded was 10:30 am to 2 pm, and even then it wasn’t too bad. Occasionally I waited on the hill to let a knot of people go by. I probably never waited more than 5 minutes in line. After 3 pm I was skiing right onto the lift.
I took my boots and demoed skis, using the “try 3 skis” deal at the Sport Shop at the base. They have good skis and good people there. (I tried a slalom-ish Nordica Mach 4 Power (178), the Volkl Gotama (178), and the Icelantic Shaman (184). I’ll put up a capsule review in the gear area.
Here's the run under chair 6.
and the blue off of chair 1 (Spillway, maybe?). Go kiddo, go... (Just a bit of an A-frame.)
Hey look! Its a skiing banana!
And here's Good and Evil getting ready to battle for skier's souls:
What do you know, Good skis Tele!
