"I wish somebody would reply to this.  I would like to know when the lifts get closed and opened by the weather and how the weather is changing.  The twitter last season was real good for keeping us up-to-date so it would be good to know if…"

"C'mon, Vagabond closed for an event for over a week? Not happening.  Besides, today's straight talk talks about powder in Vagabond.  I bet somebody has neglected to update the trail status."

"I have seen Vag used for some Downhill or longer GS competition events.  There is a start house right next to the top of the Thunderhead lift."

Vagabond has been labeled as "Event" for over a week.  I am not aware of any events that would use Vagabond for that long.See More

Is the Morningside lift open?

The lift status report has shown Morningside is closed, but the trails report show all the Morningside runs are open.  A twitter for this morning says 16 lifts are open.  What is the status of Morningside?

Shadows Groomed?

The trails report shows Shadows was groomed last night (March 16).  That is the first time I remember Shadows being groomed.  That must have disappointed a lot of skiers if it is true.  Say it isn't so.

I've been unhappy about how many trees have been removed in Shadows.  Have they groomed the bigger openings because the bumps have gotten unmanageable?

I thought about coming up early and meeting you at the airport, but your departure time would have had me leaving Denver in middle of the Saturday morning rush. I watch the news around 8 AM that day, and an accident had I-70 looking like a long, narrow parking lot,so I probably wouldn't have made it anyway.

Hope you had a great week. I am easing back in to skiing; my balance is still not back where I want it, but I am out on the hill. Nothing harder than Flintlock yet, but we will see how the week progresses.

Hopefully next year our weeks will be back in phase.

Well Jan, it looks like we will just miss each other this year. We were originally booked the same week as you, but someone in the group had a conflict, and we all moved to 31 Jan - 7 Feb. What time are you leaving on the 31st?

And, you missed a great Slopeside meet with Boo Boo, Trudeska, Kent and several others last Friday (16th).

Have fun, and maybe our dates will match next year.

I was hired in Dec of 88 by Bruce Ware. For the following 17 seasons I worked there as a race grunt on C-7, instructor, supervisor and manager. During the three season season I moved to Vail for a couple months, fell in love with Steamboat and moved here the following season.
