I guess I'll have to find another place to take the dog snowshoeing.

I think that it was just matter of time before these small resorts reopened. With traffic the way it is on I-70. To bad it's just for knuckledraggers....

Wait 'til snowboarders spend their first day riding a T-bar all day - its a real pain. They probably won't come back again unless the place is REALLY something special and really cheap.

I'm rather tickled by the way a T-bar grabs and lifts me by the balls. It's kind of like paying taxes.

Last I checked skiers had eclipsed the snowboarders in skill and huckitude at the terrain park. Irregardless I think its a cool concept.

Is it true that the Squaw Pass ski area has been reopened as a terrain park also??

Squaw Pass is going to be re-opened under the name echo mountian. It is something like 50 acres, one lift, all terrain park. The soft opening is suppose to be end of december early january, last I read. It sounds like a pretty cool idea especially if they have night riding that close to denver. Their website is [www.echomtnpark.com][/url]

Maybe you should re-check. Parks are 90% riders. And skill and huckitude? Movies don't count, rook.

Nobody can do anything on skis like shaun white can do on a board. Nobody.

I'd like to venture McConkey, Morrison, Belanger, Douglas, Babic, Luusa, and Miller as guys who are all skiing at least at the level of Shaun White.
