Hilarious. They are open from 3.30 to 5.30 today. They posted it at 1.38pm :lol:

Keystone opens tomorrow by the way... Snow Alien nailed it. They found out Keystone was opening and had to scramble.

Enjoy the I70 traffic tomorrow everyone :P

It’s a race. The only rule is who opens first. Abasin won. Vail Resorts $$$ didn’t cut it this season!

I think it's awesome that Abasin opened today especially after leaving Epic. That Vail $$$ spent to open Keystone early and keep Breck open late almost did the trip. I was super jelly all the way from Louisiana.

"Super jelly" is a new one on me. But I'm in the early stages of geezerdom so I'm not too in touch with these things.

Question: Sometimes old clothing styles come around again and get recycled. Likewise when again can we start saying things like: Far out, groovy, dude, etc.?
