Another 8" of snow but heavy. Miss the Colorado/Utah powder. Not sure what to think about this place. Lifts are as slow as molasses in February and runs are short. Don't think they want boarders here either. Ever heard of benches?
Two amazing days, so much powder...skied Snowmass on Sunday and Ajax today...24" in 24 hours, about as good as it gets in Colorado. So much snow that Aspen school district cancelled school...most flights in/out have been cancelled....get here if you can make it othe road get - -
Good day at Squaw! Yes, the place was packed, but the snow was awesome and even at mid mountain I didn't hit long lines. Folks started break off at 2pm, and by 3pm, we had the lower east lifts (Red Dog, Squaw Creek) to ourselves. It was cold and snowy but skiing was great.
The biggest downside to Squaw is getting in ... and out. 80 West was closed due huge pileup at 3:30pm, and traffic didn't start flowing from Squaw and 89 until about 6pm. A mess!
I skied Snowbird on Jan 31 after the 18 inch snowfall on the 30th. Best conditions I've ever skied at The Bird. They opened up Mineral Basin and I stayed there the entire day in knee deep and waist deep powder. Needed 107 wide skis for this pow day. Felt like skiing in clouds.
