Beaver Creek Ski Log

Beaver Creek (2012-03-12)

Not much to report after the beautiful bluebird day at Beaver Creek. It’s a tale of duality: the snow was both soft and hard we had temperatures from cold (beer) to hot (sun) sometimes we had an entire run to ourselves, but a standing-room only crowd on the patio Overall it was a fun day […]

Keystone Photography Ski Log Terrain

Keystone (2012-02-11)

It was an ideal Saturday on the slopes. A-Basin saw 8 inches, Keystone saw 4, Vail had 10. We picked Keystone since we hadn’t been in a while and wanted to give the Outback a second chance. Good thing we did. The difference a month will make. The Outback at Keystone had plenty of fresh […]

Beaver Creek Ski Log Snow

Beaver Creek (2012-01-22)

Waking up on Sunday morning in Silverthorne lead me to see the best thing I’ve seen all season: nearly a foot of new snow. We figured traffic would be light with everyone taking it easy on the highway. Boy were we wrong. We arrived in Avon around 9:30 and people were parked on every side […]

Breckenridge Ski Log Snow

Breckenridge (2012-01-21)

We had a great Saturday at Breckenridge. The T-Bar had only been open for a few days so we took the opportunity to milk it as much as possible. As expected, the snow was crusty at the top and we found all kinds of rocks and goodies. But… once you get down to the trees […]

After the storm rolled through on Saturday and overnight, all the resorts around I-70 had a good 5-9 inches reported. The keyword is reported because in I had a hard time finding the 5 inches we were hoping for for at Breckenridge (and we were on Peak 10 by 9:15 PM, it didn’t all melt […]

Keystone (2012-01-07)

We took a bit of a break and hadn’t been up for nearly a month due to work, holidays, sickness and.. well, the fact there has been absolutely no new snow along the I-70 corridor (Vail, Beaver Creek, Summit County). We decided to make a weekend out of it and headed up to Keystone on […]

Beaver Creek (2011-12-10)

Saturday was a great day to be on the mountain: perfect temperatures, not too crowded, and some decent “early season” conditions. Rachel and I headed up to Beaver Creek early in the morning and hopped on one of the first chairs at Centennial (#6). When we got to the top we grabbed a quick EpicMix […]
