    What's the matter you couldn't get over your son leaving the nest and had to follow him to CO?

    Obviously he can't find a CO forum that will embrace him so he has to keep telling us how great it is in CO.

    LOL. I've become a boomerang parent to my son in SLC, at least during ski season. IT'S ALL GOOD.

    Those also are not big destination resorts, they are daytripper places, similar to most of our ski areas around here.
    Ahhh, got it. Makes sense.

    And yes it is convenient to have another son nearby. But I do not need to justify to you what our family is like. You will see that yourself someday and I hope that someone else does not through it in your face as an insult.

    Hey to each their own. Skiing in CO is great!

    Personally, I felt that this forum is more engaging than the others. I participate in Epicski and TGR and it is more familiar here.

    I'm the best damn skier on this mountain!
    All skiing is good. Some skiing isn't as good. But all skiing is good.

    I know there are many great skiers here and I will not pretend that I can even go toe to toe. In that regard, no pot kettle situation. There some that are really good yet humble and others are really good and think their shit does not stink.

    Well said Dave. I always enjoy your reports and photos. Keep it up.

    The other fellas on here are just getting amped up as we need some snow!
