    Had a late morning PT appt so couldn’t get up to Eldora for opening as I usually do. The canyon has been under construction for a long while and is supposed to continue until next summer. Mon-Thurs full closure 10-2. Friday’s it’s open so I didn’t think anything about delays. 4 different flag men stops and it took me an extra 40 min to get there. Snow was in bad shape lots of wind and no additional snow had the trails that were opened all scoured and ice. Ended up only doing 4 runs since it was so crappy. I am almost sorry I got the Ikon Pass since I mostly got it for Eldora. But dealing with that canyon construction is a real pain in the ass. Once Mary Jane opens I may start going up there more since it would only take an extra 30 min from my new Eldora commute time. Looks dry here for a while. We need a freshening up of snow.

    Monarch Mountain opened today with 22 trails. They have zero snow making its all natural. Impressive since usually mountains open with one T2B trail. They used to have a deal if you showed your CO season pass you could get a $40 lift ticket but now that everything is Epikonic I think that stopped.
  7. We planned on a later start so the temps could warm up. Was 13 in Boulder this morning. Inversion because by the time we got to Estes around 10:30 it was 35 degrees. The wind was whipping around and we were dreading booting up. But the temp was warm so it wasn’t bad. We usually take the trail at the end, lookers right (marked in red), but it was very wind scoured so we veered left at the fork (marked in green). That had more coverage but it’s a very narrow trail. The sections of powder I found to try and play in were crusted over and not very fun. Not too many pictures, we only skinned up a mile and came back down. I was huffing and puffing and could tell the drop in my cardio, gotta work on that. The snow we did have was iced over and fast! I could have used an easier first day back on the snow but it was good to get out. Eldora opens tomorrow and will be a shit show. I am gonna keep an eye on the webcams and may head up for an hour or two late afternoon. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Good to know. But since I only have a limited number of days there I would rather save them for late season than early season.

    I have Epic and Ikon so, yes, I could go to Keystone. But my friend only has Ikon and Abasin only has one run open.

    Plans set, heading up to RMNP for my first ski day of the season tomorrow. So freaking psyched!!! My legs and cardio are garbage right now from being out of commission for 6 weeks w the boot. Should be an interesting skin up. Will most certainly post a TR. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I know I saw that! The canyon is a mess right now. They have been doing work for months to permanently fix things from the flood years ago. It is closed mid day Mon-Thurs and there’s have been multiple rock slides where it closes without notice. Gonna make it an interesting season driving up there.

    I think you get 7 days with the Ikon and nobody want to waste a day with one run open early season.
