Did you make it out? I was actually in Ouray ice climbing. Where did you ski?

The Beaver Creek backcountry has been serving it up for us lately... I'm just really itching for the spring mountaineering/skiing season, though... with the lack of new snow. My ability to fluidly ski hard moguls has improved exponentially, so I guess thats good! :)

I'd feel more awesome if Colorado would get some friggin' snow. How's Utah??

Come to Tahoe, we've got plenty. All areas open 100%, The Chutes at Mt.Rose are open. Back country skiing is good.
Some mistakes are too much fun to make only once.

I just noticed that this new 'slide down snow' forum got populated with a bunch of relevant topics from before it existed. It looks pretty good, appears to be a lot of useful stuff in here now. Nice work, I'm a fan.

On a side note, Jordan White's blog post today is killing me...

Sorry - didn't see this until now. Sounds like we switched states last weekend. I skied Park City that Friday - the snow wasn't bad. Then we skied Brighton Saturday and found nice snow/powder on much of the expert terrain. And Alta Sunday was awful!
All we are called to do is do the next right thing.

After days like yesterday, resort skiing is really starting to feel like a big waste of my time. 8-[

Must have been good all over this past weekend...

Believe it or not, I found some of that deep powder at Breck today! Of course it was off the beaten path...
