"Don't know what the actual process is but having been down Vouge after it was "renovated" the result is chewing up sections of ice and boiler plate into a surface that's easier to hold an edge on a turn. Also makes some mini…"

"Renovated" slopes

Just curious: Is there a significant difference felt on a "renovated" trail (see trails report) or is this a marketing reposition for what the grooming teams do every evening anyway? Do they spend more time than they do on just plain "groomed" trails? Use a different machine? Haul in snow from elsewhere? What? See More

An open letter to the Ski School

To the Ski School Management Team...

I just returned home from a 10-day vacation in Steamboat where my husband and I skied 9 consecutive full day private clinics with Laura Sjoblom and my brother-in-law rode 9 full day privates with Abi Slingsby. Many people think of privates as just a $600+ daily express lift ticket, but since we always are on the snow during one of the year's slowest weeks that's not such a motivating factor. For us, it's all about the instructors and what they… Continue

hi trudy .. I can't wait to see you all in January. Please tell Irving I even purchased an alpine snowboard set up so we can go out and properly ride together. Life has been good and the opening few weeks busy but I am ready for some serious snow. This riding on man-made stuff on 40 degree days is not nearly as much fun as a blue bird powder day ...
talk to you soon ...

Dear Trudy
I have a discussion going in the steamboat forum about catered accommodation and people keep telling me you are the expert. If you have time, could I have your views? Many thanks

Sorry I missed you and the others at Slopeside. If you are going to be around on the mountian, let me know and we can make a few turns together if you would like or sip a few after skiing.

BTW, I was in Miami for the Orange Bowl thhis year. Only a short visit though.

Good morning! I hope that your travels were as stress-free and good as possible and that you aren't too tired. It looks as though you have picked a perfecr few days to start your trip! Sunshine and smooth groomers - I assume that is what you ordered... ;-)

You know what husband and I look like (both in green jackets and black pants. I have a black helmet and the crystal goggles, husband has grey helmet and grey/orange goggles).

We will keep an eye out for you. There is an outside chance that we may be at Hazies for lunch, although we tend to eat lunch earlier. I only realised last night that we have only been to Hazies and Ragnars once each for lunch, so far, this trip - very unusual! Depends where on the mountain we are at about 11.30 and how hungry we are.

Have a fantastic first day skiing - it should be good for you. I look forward to seeing you later. Lois

Have a great day on the snow!
We will be driving up later today and I will look out for you tomorrow! I am sure I will see your brother in law as I always bump into Abi at least twice a day!
Have fun and enjoy the sun! Looks like it will be time to break out the spring jacket this weekend. I am not a fan of the Colorado January thaw, but never mind! I think I am out of luck for any new powder for a few days at least, your “sun and not too much pow” dance might have worked ;)

Nope, not going to Steamboat until Prez weekend. I'm flying to New Orleans this morning. Looking at flight info, looks like you are arriving in ATL about now. unfortunately I will be boarding my flight in about 15 minutes, so a bit tight to stop by and say "Hi". Ya'll enjoy your trip!
At 8:51am on January 14, 2009, jg atl said…
Trudy, when do you land in ATL on Thursday? I have an 8:30 flight out of ATL for New Orleans Thursday morning. I assume you are on the 10:05 Delta flight direct from ATL to HDN. The cold front will hit us hard Thursday and Friday morning with the lowest temps in several years (forecasting 16 and 10 degrees F).

You never have to say Please to me . . . I'll do whatever!

Hi Trudy,
We will not get to Steamboat until 6.30ish weather dependent. We have been trying to get the girls to let us take them out of school Friday, but they will not let us! So we don't get on the road until about 3ish. Can you beleive kids that don't want to miss school! So its unlikely we will make Slopeside this time :(
At 5:45pm on January 11, 2009, Dr Juice said…
We will be up on the 16th, I will be on the mountain 17th, 18th 19th. Then again 23rd on the mountain 24th & 25th during your stay. I have a feeling we might be at Howelsen Hill for A competition on the 25th with the Freestyle Girlie but I will have to check her schedule...I remember Abi telling me she was riding with your Brother in Law. She is the best!
Let me know what works for you.
