The start of the 2008-2009 ski season has been eerily like that of the 2007-2008 season: a mostly dry October and November followed by a pummeling of snowfall soon after Thanksgiving.
This weekend is one of those times you really really really really really should go riding. It seems like almost every ski resort in the state is opening additional terrain by this weekend. Nothing beats hitting the opening of a bowl after a week of storms. It’s like riding untouched backcountry snow without all the uphill work. This type of mass early-weeklong-dump/drop-the-ropes action only happens once a season if at all.
Just be sure to get there early to get the goods. And play nice all you Front Range riffraff. I know you’ve been waiting for this.
UPDATE: Keystone is also getting in on the party this weekend.
