    haha, way to go A-Basin! Keystone doesn't really have the right exposure and altitude to play in this game. But they do have Vail-bucks to spend on snowmaking. Score a victory for the rebellion!

    nice. i posted in the vail/peaks thread. i LOVE how a-basin pulled the trigger on TODAY minutes after keystone announced for tomorrow.

    this is usually all in good fun, but this one feels more pointed given the circumstances and the players.

    Wow...well played A-Basin! Opening from 3:30PM-5:30PM today and announcing just after Keystone says they open tomorrow. That is without a doubt them giving Vail the middle finger.

    We dropped our skis at Epic Mountain Gear to get tuned and while at the shop we heard they opened for two hours beating out Keystone. Soooo, out came the old spare skis, hand tuned them and loaded up the truck. Now sitting in the mug club line at 6:30 in the morning and will join the masses for WROD. This will be our earliest day skiing beating last year by a day. However there will never be a better first day then last year.



    BTW Someone mentioned that Keystone cannot compete - their snowmaking system is amazing.and they will open more terrain faster that anyone else by November.
