A perfect holiday weekend that had to be called up by executive order.  Vail got it.  We covered it.  Hope you did as well:

Forgot to give a shout out for Greg Hoffmann who we visited with at his SBF hilltop shop seen here through Buffalo’s corral:

Sweet!  You've sealed the deal.  Ima head west next week

Thanks for the report.

Bazzer, sorry our timing didn't work out.  I'll keep looking forward to the next time we can get out on a mountain for some turns again.

Got to agree DD. Pretty much perfection for two days. I'll see if I can't acquire a camera and post up a TR when I get home.

Bazzer Jr. arrived in good shape. Spent his first day on the hill in a lesson with VailSnowpro. Lots of big soft bumps, subtle refinements, and smiling faces.

Now that The Kid is here, the "Follow Me Dad" rules are in effect. Stopped off on the way back from our PM feeding and picked up some extra Tylenol.

Have an uneventful trip out. I think that there's a touch more than 3" of fresh at I'm at the base. Should be splendid for your arrival.

Give a yell or send a PM if you'd care to hook up and share some turns. I'm skiing through Friday.

Nice to meet you guys. Looks like you were here for the best day in recent memory. Still snowing and just getting better. Nice photo's as well.

Thanks Bazzer. I'd like to do that. I'm with a customer and I have never skied with him before so I need to see what areas of Vail he wants to ski beforehand. He indicated that he wanted to buy boots while in Vail so we'll look up Greg as well and get him fitted while we are there.

I can’t speak for gregfits…but setting an appointment time for your associate would help the overall ‘on-snow’ schedule me thinks. 

BTW; nice business trip…remember clients are king on pwdr days in this economy

Looking good Bazz!  It must be the Goats.   :)

The very last picture of you up there you've got a very VSP-like stance.   If we go back in April I may not be able to keep up.

Finn -1.5 days at work?  In a row?  You poor thing - get back to a mountain ASAP!
post #15 of 18
Yes, Its been 3 days now... its killing me!

Bazzer, looking forward to getting some turns in next time.

trying to put together a Mid-March trip.

was there along side you for my bachelor party.  got to ski friday (could still feel the ice through the powder), saturday, and monday.  All my buddies from Cali loved everything about Vail, with the exception of traversing to get to BSB (they are all boarders), especially all the wonderful snow.

It's either the Goats, or the hero snow. Certainly not my acumen. Also, I was following the lead of Betsy and DonDenver, two very strong, smooth, and elegant ski monsters. Just played follow the leader and some of their grace rubbed off for a day or two.
