It's pretty darn good! First day was Thursday and the snow and cover was excellent. Just skied groomers and some bumps on the front , but it was great. Drive over Wed. night from the Denver airport held hopes for a powder day Thursday as it was snowing pretty hard at the Tunnel and over Vail Pass, but I guess it was just a short and intense storm as they reported only 2in. Thursday. Supposed to snow a little bit Fri.- Sun. Talked to people on the lift that said Wed. kind of a sleety -icy snow was going on and visability was horrible along wih iced up goggles, so I'm fortunate I missed that.
My ski buddy had a death in the family so he couldn't come out , but was kind enough to give me the condo keys and told me to go without him. Kind of feel guilty going under the circumstances. Going to take out the Bluehouse Mavens today as they are opening Bluesky so maybe a guy that has skied for the most part race carver type skis for the last 20 years can embrace the new age!
If anybody's around and wants to make some turns let me know. I'm from Pa. and can't adjust to the 2 hour time difference so I'm the nut standing infront of the Vista Bahn 20 min. before they open. I take that back, too cheap to park in the garage and the bus schedule doesn't get me there now till 8:47 so I barely make first chair.
Seriously the skiing is really great and a real treat this early in the season.
