    Giveaway - Icelantic Oracle 88 skis

    My wife has been wanting Icelantic skis for a while after demoing them a few years ago at Cannon. Sent from my SM-G930V using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

    Roll call 11/22-25

    We had the Cannon Pass for three seasons and it was never an issue to get it in the fall. Sent from my SM-G930V using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

    With them on Epic Pass now, it is a lot cheaper than it was. Not to mention having three ski areas in NE for a little over 800 is probably attractive at this point. Sent from my SM-G930V using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

    Skipped A Basin - too many people. Instead we headed to Keystone which had lots of terrain open on all three peaks. Snowed all day and they dropped ropes on trails for some nice 6-12 inch powder turns but rather chaotic due to people with the same idea. No lift lines. With 12-24 inches coming in today Breck should be prime on Sunday. Sent from my SM-G930V using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

    A Basin Friday and Keystone or Breck on Sunday - both reporting 1300 acres open. Skied Horseshoe Bowl @ Breck last weekend. Sent from my SM-G930V using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

    Ryan's Beer Thread

    When Corona or any other american beer cost 18.99 per six pack in Turks and Caicos then local brews do the trick. This one was pretty darn good. Sent from my SM-G930V using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

    Wolf Creek First to Open - Opening day

    So we skied A Basin this weekend and it was ok but Wolf Creek made A Basin seem like nothing. Sent from my SM-G930V using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

    Opening Day 2018

    You asking about Beavers? I am curious about that. Many locals are pissed about that lift. Steep Chutes is a walk back and no longer allowed to use the road. Sent from my SM-G930V using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

    Mug Clubs

    Never really did this before. Almost pulled the trigger at Cannon but never did. We waited what seems like forever to get a mug at A Basin which will provide discounts through the season. Thoughts on Mug Clubs or do you belong to one? Sent from my SM-G930V using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

    Opening Day 2018

    A Basin Opening Day for Day 2 yesterday. Conditions were pretty good with a good base depth with nothing poking through. Wait times about 15 minutes. 28 acres - one run and a small park. Wife and I are now A Basin Mug Club members but had to wait almost 3 hours in line for that. Sent from my SM-G930V using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

    Wolf Creek First to Open - Opening day

    Sure did! I never had a first day like it. Legs were not ready for it but that's ok. I guess if you wait until late November or December for a first day then that might compare. But never in October or even early November. A Basin and Loveland will be open soon with a couple trails and that's it. Sent from my SM-G930V using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  15. Puck it said it first in another thread but ..... It was the first in the nation. At 11 pm on Friday my wife suggested we go for it and hit Wolf Creek. I did not want to mention it earlier as not to seem selfish but she did and it was all good. So, my wife and I made the 3 hour 45 minute trek to Wolf Creek to ski for about 5 hours and then drove back home. It was well worth the trip. This had to be the best first in the nation opening day ever. As mentioned three lifts open but here is the kicker, nothing roped off. If you can get to it then ski it. Arriving at 9:30, powder was good when we first got there but chopped up in the best spots. Steeper runs formed nice powder bumps and trees remained soft throughout the day. It got to about 38 and the Colorado sun was making the remaining powder rather heavy. So tracked out areas and groomers became the focus. There were groomed runs all over but also a lot of ungroomed but tracked stuff that was fun. Loved an opening day with no lift lines, no WROD and wide open skiing.
