    going to buttermilk over the other three aspen options on any sort of powder day is an absolutely ludicrous decision.

    Sure, choices different from what you'd do are absolutely ludicrous. Other people doing things, I tell ya

    No new ski areas for me this year. I found many new lines at SR that I didn't know before. I must have found most of them by now, but don't seem to have run out yet.

    The season may end with a return to Sugarloaf for the first time in several years. Have to see if that works out.

    Beware wind holds after big dumps at WF, I've been burned more than once. Oh, check for Canadian holidays too.

    Finally skied Telluride. 3/10-17 an epic week ... 19" in 24hrs, 31" in 48h and 50" in 7 days with bluebird days to end the week. They're closing 4/7 (date set a year in advance) with 98% open and a 93" base after the record snow year. Seasonal flights into Montrose cut back = few skiers to justify the operating expense.

    Missing a smiley somewhere?

    Calling a 2-3" day as "powder" day is just as ludicrous (or so northeast?). Aspenites won't even bother to get up early on any day with less than 4" (some say less than 6")

    you called it a "mini powder day", not me. choosing buttermilk over highlands, snomass, or ajax, on any day, ever, is a ludicrous decision and a waste of western skiing.

    But not a eastern skiing?

    I skied 40+ days in the west, less than 10 in the east. If I were to "waste" any day, I'd prefer to waste a western one!

    Sugarloaf's Snowfields

    Well, not exactly new, but I have not had the chance to ski those in years, even though I'm at Sugarloaf every year for a week.
    This time, the snow cover was fantastic and skied the back fields that lead into Brackett and Burnt Mt. It's rare that I get to ski some steep terrain without hiking up to Tucks.
    Since it has been years that I was up there last, it was almost like a "first".

    Hit Abasin and Loveland for the first time at the end of Feb/Early march and lucked out big time. Used GEM Cards for a $40 ticket at Loveland and $50 days at Abasin.

    Empty midweek Bluebird day at Loveland followed by two days of endless pow at Abasin... which is for sure my new favorite western mountain. Only got one lap on the east wall before it closed for the next two weeks and barely got around to hitting the beavers (Zuma Cornice was skiing amazing) so of course already planning my return!

    a-basin is easly the best ski area in the denver area (including all of summit county, vail/eagle county, and winter park/grand county).

    it's really the only consistently interesting terrain in the entire region.
