I always do. The winter we just had was as epic as the 500+ inch winter I spent in CB and the 450 inch winter I spent in Whitefish.

There are lots of criteria to judge something by other than quantity of inches. How much of the mountain is north facing is one of the biggest for me.

There are others too. Apologies to the original poster for any thread jack.

doublet - may global "climate change" bring you as much powder as you desire.

one_elk: you ass monkey. There are no cool people here just a bunch of hallucinating, self-deluded pricks like me. Oh hey wait you might fit right in.

Hey all, thanks for the help and responses. Got a few more questions. We'll probably get back sometime late summer or early fall; seeing as that is the off season for Salida what are the job prospects; are their good jobs not just dishwashing jobs available? How about housing? Never having skied Monarch, what's it like - is it a place you can ski for 60-100 days a year with trips to the backcountry?

Telluride - what are the housing options for old town? Does everyone new have to live in the mountain village or are their still places available for reasonable? People that live there or go there, realistically what are the town boatin options like? I know it's close to things and there's a river in town - is it worthwhile as an after work run? What's the sense of community like, is it now mostly tourists or is it fairly mellow outside of all the tourist work etc?

Thanks again for all the help - even the aggressive ones. Scott, unfortunately we won't be finished here until mid july and then plan on traveling a bit so will miss the season. Have fun and save lines.
