    I need to retire.  With the holiday break I was able to ride 7 out of 10 days.  3 states, 6 different trail systems, 65 miles.  Now it's back to the grind and I'll be lucky to get out at all in the next 2 weeks.

    I was on shutdwon last week too.  I only got 21 miles in with company in town though.  I have 15 miles so far this week after work.  I hope for another 7-8 tonight.

  2. Made a call to catch the last week for The new six pack with Fcksummer.  Snowdon was showing a lot debris.  Peak was still in good shape.  Double Dipper was awesome. Best runs were off Superstar chair though. A few woods runs. Fresh snow was sticky in them though.

    Off the saddle (I think that is how you access it) does the run next to Wicked haard have a name? Or is it actually accessed through Wicked haard? From the lift saw a couple guys heading down it. One skier one snowboarder. Actually looks more open than Wicked Haard.

    The one that you are referring to is called Obvious and the entrance is near the top of the hike.  This dumps you down into a stream bed that is now open and running.  There are others when you start to come down the saddle.  The main one is Bunny Direct.

    Very nice.

    At least @ABV didn't drop the beer. Was the glove recovered? 

    Glove was recovered, but I found some powder and left the search. No friends on powder days.

    After watching this I'm still calling that kid at fault and I still take most of the credit for avoiding it being a bad crash.  But I will cut him a little more slack.  Didn't realize he was a goofy rider.  So we were back to back.  At the time I thought he was riding regular and had a much clearer view of the situation. 

    HE did scream.  "He hit me. He hit me!!!!!!"

    Word around the bar was that the skier was quite large, 6'4 and about 280. Not sure how reliable the source of that was but that could have contributed to his momentum. 

    They don't rope the bottom but have had a "Slow" sign in the middle. Can't remember if its still there. Probably a good idea to set up something like you and @ABV mentioned. He could have injured multiple people if there had been a line at the lift. People are usually lined up along that embankment too, waiting for other members of their group or dropping down into Middle Ravine. 

    I think there is short rope to keep from cutting the corner and people coming back to the lift from Ravine
