You guys prove to me anyway that "rangers" love to ski!! Amazing that folks are willing to spend 3+ hrs waiting on the road with the rest of the front range army - just to ski a foot of shit pow that will be gone in half a day.

Sometimes I almost feel guilty to live 10 min from endless pow lines. Not very much but sometimes ....

I can make the Irwin, Rabbit Ears, Wolf Creek, Grand Mesa, Flat Tops or any trailhead in between in under 3 hrs. If I leave at 5am we would be sitting in the cold ass dark waiting for the sun to come up.

Yea you folks down on the range sure do love to ski!!

It is bad enough driving I-70 on a spring or summer weekend to paddle, but that is a sacrifice that has to be made on occassion.

Dave, I am sure you would agree, Eldo was sweet on Thursday, not many people showed up. I got up there at noon and still skied powder the rest of the day.

I will not drive I-70 on the weekend to ski. Between the traffic conjestion, waiting in lift lines, gas costs and resort gapers, I am so done with that whole seen. I prefer the little ski areas with character.

I love waking up at 7:30 and having a little coffee in Ned on my 10 min drive to Eldo or to our close IP BC skiing. With a little safety applied and getting deep in the trees, I wouldn't know if I am in Vail or Eldo anyhow. Plus, I find bowl skiing to be a yawner for the most part.
