What a week it’s been. I have been here in the mountains of Colorado surrounded by family and great friends. There is not a much better feeling than being surrounded by love. It’s an incredible feeling. I want to thank everyone who has made this season amazing. What a ride it has been. Here’s to a great finish to the 2017/2018.

To the follower who was brewing the storm for us last month. . . I wanted to thank you. No, we all want to thank you. Don’t stop brewing storms for us. And I received from you:

I have a feeling we will cross paths sooner than later. Thank you for all of your positive energy. I feel like we already met. I look forward to the day we do. Ski-on brother from another mother.

To the group that I spent the last week with, a big thank you. Big shout out to AW TRAINOR, KS, KS, JB, RG, JJKIX & MG. You, your family, and your friends helped make it an amazing week. I can’t thank you all enough. Friends, family, music and the mountains. WOW what a week to remember for sure.


With only seven weeks, give or take, until closing day the 2017/2018 winter season is flying by. It was a slow start, with a dismal January, but things are in full swing now. Happy times are here again. It’s snowing right now. Get out now before it’s too late.


Resort conditions are solid. This is not a joke, even though some of you think it is. Did you forget it’s snowing. With each new snowfall conditions just get better. Now is the time people. Get off the couch and get your a$$ out there. It’s the best time of the season on the mountain. Get out there and enjoy it. Conditions do not get much better than this. Yes, really.
