re: 2017-2018 Season Long Ski Thread - bamafan425
We got a little bit. No more than 4" I'd guess. Looks like another chance on Saturday night. We got snow on the mountain, we just need a dump or two to really get this place rocking and terrain open. ...

I'm a mitten man. Swany Toasters. They have a side zipper where you can slide your hand out. It comes with a built in liner but I cut it out. Going on 200+ days of skiing with these guys. Holding up like a champ. [img]https://i.imgur.com/t8ZWv24.jpg[/img]...

There's snow in the northern mountains but the coverage isn't quite what ya need at the resort for open terrain. Snow making is crushing what they can but we really need some natural help. Hopefully a pattern shift at the end of this week? Sun angle is super low and days are short so we are losi...

My boss took me out on his snowmobile today for some mellow backcountry shuttle pow laps. Got the sled stuck a few times, but hey that happens. [img]https://i.imgur.com/IzOKREL.jpg[/img] [img]https://i.imgur.com/MT43bBN.jpg[/img]...

re: 2017-2018 Season Long Ski Thread - bamafan425
Yeah, it was on the closed part of the upper mountain. We basically have one run officially open. We used the gondola to get us to 9000ft and summited Mt. Werner at 10,500ft. So we skinned about 1500 vertical feet. Definitely not in the shape I wanna be right now, but the climb wasn't too bad. We...

I've never been to a Phil show, so I'm excited. And Leftover Salmon are the godfathers of the Colorado jamgrass scene, so I always enjoy seeing them. I always seem to enjoy the setlists Phil and TFB put out there. Grahame Lesh has some great vocals for some Dead songs. His Jack O'Roses from Lockn...

They're just waiting to bust out Alligator and the Eleven in New Orleans. I think they could vary their set lists up more, but the Dead had plenty of stretches themselves where setlists were pretty similar. This tour was pretty rushed too, don't think they have taken time to add much from summer...

[quote]ide note: Decent skier (no issue with harder blues & easier blacks) but I'd like to get a lot better. Not dropping the coin on individual lessons... is it worth taking group lessons or just figure it out on my own?[/quote] I'd say just keep skiing. If you can ski with someone who's better ...

re: 2017-2018 Season Long Ski Thread - bamafan425
Besides tonight, its looking grim here in Colorado through mid-December. Cold air coming in will allow for some snowmaking, but not much moisture in the air the next few weeks. We might squeak out 6" tonight here in Steamboat. Only real chance for accumulation we have in the near future....
