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!

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...
