    From the other side, too. I even have an A-Basin season pass, since @MaryG convinced me it made sense to upgrade from last year's Spring pass.

    I'm surprised that there isn't much of a line.

    Normally I'm so jealous of people who are skiing while I'm sitting on an excruciating conference call. I honestly can't say that applies today.

    Really? I would be there if it worked out. Its about the vibe. Last season I stood in line at Copper's opening with @dean_spirito and we had a blast.

    It is a glorious sunny day for A-Basin's opening. I will wait until next week to get in my first turns of the season, though. I'll be breaking in my new Lange XT130 Free Tours!

    Today I'm going for a ride with my new dropper post (if the PO will let me have it.)

    @Doug Briggs are you coming on Tuesday? (Location to be determined)

    I am anxiously awaiting my new hardtail I ordered from @dawgcatching so hoping it arrives in time for a ride or 2! :thumb:

    I don't know when I'll be out, but I am anxious to make some turns. A little thing called work (a nasty four letter word) dictates when I'm free.

    Drove up from Denver this morning. Stayed for about 2.5 hours and got in 5 maybe 6 runs. It was a zoo out there. Literally, people were dressed up as purple and black gorillas, there was a parrot pumping some tunes, and I think I saw a pikachu. There were also plans for a snowball fight, but I'm not sure it ever materialized. Anyway, a bad day of skiing is still better than a day without skiing.
