    Any first hand reports from the board?
    I was at Breckenridge over the weekend (Th-Sat) - skiied through the snowstorm on Sat. - they must have gotten a foot or so of new powder. This was my first trip out west so I can't compare, but I thought Breck was awesome. My buddy has a ski-in ski-out condo at the bottom of Peak 9 so that was super convenient! I haven't skiied in 20 years so I mostly stayed on the blues - we covered Peak 9 and Peak 7. The guys I was with did all the crazy stuff at the top and had a great time up there. Some of the lifts at the very top were closed one day due to wind.

    Watching weather closely—we’re flying into Aspen. Fingers crossed.

    Heading to Banff/Lake Louise next Thursday. It's freaking cold there. Doesn't look like it will get above 20 any day. They've gotten awesome snow this year though, so we're pretty pumped.

    Getting two days at Vail at the beginning of March. Never skied Vail. Recommendations on which runs/areas I should make sure to hit? I'm a decent skier who enjoys big bowls, bumps and trees but am not a cliff-jumper.

    You'll want to spend almost all your time on the Back Bowls/Blue Sky Basin, assuming the snow is decent.

    If not it will be ice and time wasted getting back there.

    Would love to hear about your trip when you get back, I am headed there in late March.

    22” at Snowmass yesterday—Weather guy on OpenSnow says that is pretty much all you can get in Colorado in a 24 hour period. 51” there in the last week.

    Utah and Colorado Skiing

    Sitting in Houston waiting on a connection to Aspen. Would have been there by now if my original flight wasn’t cancelled. Looks like we were victimized by the consolidation of two less-than-full flights (we were able to immediately get seats on the later flight—I love airlines). As long as I’m snapping into my bindings in the morning all will be forgiven...

    Also, there is a bunch of Texas A&M stuff in the airport gift shop. Conspicuously absent are any “Belk Bowl Champions” t-shirts.

    Nice - 3 feet in the last week for you, with some more coming. Heading to Banff tomorrow. They have had an unreal snow year, but are a little light in the last week/coming days. Hopefully we'll get lucky.

    Suckers. Planning a trip to Snowshoe this weekend. 65 and thunderstorms. May have to eat the $1100 VRBO...

    Snow conditions at Snowmass the last three days have been fantastic. Got into some shin deep powder first thing this morning after a decent storm last night.

    It just didn't work out this season, but I agree, the earlier the better!

    Oldest will be 3 next season; hoping to start her at ski school then.

    We started our son early and he loves it. Our daughter not so much. She just doesn't like it even though she's a good little skier. Sigh. My dreams of family ski trips gone. I guess I will just have to settle for father son trips.
