Last week I found myself back at Beaver Creek. I was visited by friends from here and there. It was cold, snowy and blistery last week so I did not get very many pics.

What’s the grimace for bruh?
How you liking the trees?
It’s nice in here.
The smile says it all.
I think we are going to take a pass today. Next time.


We continue to receive solid feedback. Once again, you sent us a little bit of everything. We received replies from FB and IG as well as the website.
You sent us texts, emails, notes, emojis and emoji-cons. Thank you. We are grateful for anything we receive and send thanks to those who send us stuff. Keep it coming my friends. Here’s some of what you sent to us this week:

Not sure this guy read our last post

Did you make it down to Crested Butte? How was it?

Duh . . . didn’t you see the headline of our last post

Was amazing, but thought you could tell by the post. But I know these 2 readers know the dealio . . .

CB is off the hook!

and this one

Nice job showing off the steeps really great photography.

and from my cuz regarding the trip

Thanks for the Awesome trip. Crested Butte will forever be in my memories.

No doubt. It was an awesome trip. We were not immune to the holiday crowds, but being out there we just had less than most. I know it can get rough out there. . .

F’ing crowded. Must be 15000 people here.

Maybe even 20k. That’s what ya get for going to Breckenridge on Saturday of a holiday weekend. It’s still fun, but you do have to be extra careful with all those Jerry’s out. Whether we have done a trip together or not it always nice receiving this:

Can’t wait to get there. Thanks for always making our trips memorable adventures!

When you only get one or maybe two trips a year they should be memorable. I’m glad I can share these memories with your friends and family. And from another guy I touring around The Beav:

Thank you again for awesome condo at Beaver Creek, breakfast & great skiing together too.

The 3 B’s. Beaver Creek, Breakfast & Blue Bird Days. Fun times fa sure. Let’s do it again man.

And this weeks reader quote of the week goes to this guy:

Yo!Why don’t u bring some peeps to Breck this week? I’m there wed-sun…If u got peep frogs that want to see Bar/club action . . .my spot is a great lilly pad.

Thanks. Happy to put it out there. So to my peep frogs . . . my boys’ got a great lilly pad. Nuff said!!



Snow conditions are awesome right now. I counted 50 resorts in North America with a 100+ inch base right now. There is a lot of snow out there people. Mammoth leads the list with a whopping 225 inch base and has received 350 inches of total snowfall this season. Oh my, that’s an awesome amount of snow. Conditions are really good if not great pretty much everywhere. More snow is predicted to fall in the mountains, so this snow train is not stopping anytime soon. I’ve heard this quit a few times recently . . .

It’s so good right now

Well it doesn’t suck; that’s for sure. So get out there and check it out for yourself. The Thrill of the Mountain Awaits you . . .
