Just pulling off the hill. Good fun. Got to ride with Katie, Stepson Logan and a friend from work that is learning the ways of the carve. Good stuff. Golden hour was 9:45-11:00 then slarving in the slush. Saber is always good. Thanks Sean.

I am at Breckenridge with family and am astonished by its size and picturesque sceneries.  BUT, slush all around. I hoped for better condition on snowy Sunday. Upper half was ok but too windy. Most of all, crossing trails from peak to peak are too flat.  Too wide and mellow steepness with pointless rollers invite straightliners.  

Abasin was excellent on Sat & Today. Probably will ride there most of this week and maybe Keystone.

The divide areas (a-basin/Loveland) do seem to do better late in the season.

This year it seems that we are going slushy early.  Warm temps and dry in the forecast so don't get yer hopes up.

Despite of unimpressed slopes, I went out again in the today morning.  I meant to stay in Peak 9 but got lost again and ended up either Northstar or Claimjumper. And met a hardbooter ripping nicely. We chatted a min or so and went our own way (riding with a 7 yrs old). 

Then, hit Keystone afternoon. Now, I do really respect CO riders for their endurance. 3 runs from top to bottom (Frenchman & Wild Irishman) shot my legs. 

Will be at A-basin tomorrow.

Took easy on today. 

Few laps at A-basin green and blue trails after 10:30. The condition is still nice. Went to back bowl and rode Columbine and Larkspur. It was more chopped up than lodge side but pitch was nice. Even more reasons to ride A-basin. 

On my last run at 2, I met Aaron (kitepearson?) and rode down High-Noon together. It was soft but we loved it every bit of it and made deep trenches on the way down. 

I will be at A-basin next two days in the morning.

Anyone out-and-about over the Holidays? I've been out the last 4-days, and haven't seen another 'booter. I know, I know; LCI, etc. But Epic-Pass + House-next-to-Shock-Station = I'm riding Breck (and maybe A Basin). 

It's been surprisingly mellow, this week, given the holidays and all that. Nice fresh yesterday, but the wind is roaring today. We'll be here through the 30th.

After some 30-40 days of riding at Breck, over the last 2-seasons, I finally saw another carver, this past Saturday (and again on Sunday)! Not sure who; Guy on a black w/red-letters, Donek FC (if you're reading, I had the black, REV 175).

I always find it funny that virtually no-one working at Breck has any idea of what an alpine board is. Yet if I go to our dinky MN local bump, most every liftie knows the deal.

 

Cheers!
