Jan 29th, 30th at Vail and the 31st at Loveland.
[We were “shot out of a cannon” Friday since vail snopro had us all signed up ready to start our day running some NASTAR gates for team Epic Ski. Yup…Ric knows only one speed to ski and the NASTAR gates right off the bat serve as your warm up ]
Betsy took a picture of the boys lined up on the last run of the day you’ll notice VSP's NASTAR weapons slung over his shoulder:
On Saturday at Vail we lost vail snopro due to his clients but did add the lovely Lgeib to the posse:

Check out these L'rippers rock'n. Too fast for our posse :
Loveland had fantastic variable snow conditions with a reported 41” mid along with sunny skies. Some leading storm winds did cause us to abandon 9’s ridge and pitch by 1:30 where we finished off the day protected on 1.
Here looking from 8 over to the top of 1:
Remaining shots come from Loveland. [edit...*]Here I’m coming down near Perfect Bowl off 4:

...Vail and Loveland may claim a different experience and are separated by a couple of mountain passes; but they both skied equally well on the last days of January 2010. A great time.
