How has it been going? How many showed up? Is there any snow?

It's a bit like herding cats without set events, but I estimate there are 20 people here. 

The snow was pretty rough for the first few days, but a dump a couple days ago brought the typical soft Colorado groom back. Tomorrow should be epic with the 2nd groom after the storm!

Didn't see anyone today on the Wave, so I did the best I could to leave a message... :ph34r:

Thanks for picking up our slack! Looking good.

Thank you Corey for the alway excellent clinic:
It's like a great book; it doesn't matter how many time I took it.
I always seems to get more out of it everytime.

In addition thank you again Corey for the General cat herding:  all the demo/planning logistic, and positive vibe!!

Condition were not the best for a bit; but it's not too difficult to find trails that work for each's own taste.
If your snowboard have not earn a new battle scar; you should buy lottery.

tomorrow and Friday should be EPIC.

Already booked up? Is that something you need to do weeks in advance? Glad you guys got a little snow refresher

It sounds like First Tracks fills up a few days to a week in advance. I forgot to register earlier. :/

Here's a clip from Snowmass:

I'm on a Donek 175 Secret demo in very soft groom. Thanks to Jim for filming!

Let's make dinner plans for Thursday at 6 PM at Slow Groovin BBQ at Snowmass. This will be our unofficial banquet for the unofficial ATC. No prizes, no speeches, just laughs with fellow carvers. 

Please post or message me if you are coming so I have a count.

For first tracks, try this: 

1. Forget the Gondola.  Line up at the old 1A double chair at 8:30.  Ski Patrol and lifties are friendly will generally let you on the chair by 8:45. 

2. 1A (aka Shadow Mountain chair) will take you directly to the bottom of Ruthie's. 

3. You'll have 3-4 runs in on Ruthie's before anyone makes it over from the Gondola.

I'll bring one Johan. 

Tomorrow is the last day for demo boards, and they must be returned to the St. Moritz by Friday evening. If someone wants something, I could bring it to Slow Groovin BBQ tonight if you let me know before 5:20. 

The list: 

Secret Rev 185, 175, 163

Proteus 180, 170, 165

Voyager 170, 160

Freecarve 163

actually...the Gondo typically opens at 8:45 while 1a is more toward 9, plus it is a Slowww chair...so you can Gondo and get to 6 and be going down Ruthies before others can be up 1a and over to Ruthies and then up Ruthies to the top to start down Ruthies...

Thanks to all that showed up and shared in the stoke, even with questionable snow the first few days! The latter days made up for the early days! 

I shot some video that needs an edit, then I'll put the link up here.

Here is a video from Highlands on the 2nd last day of the session: 

Music picked for length as it was a bit too boring without something. Hit mute and supply your own if you don't like it. ;)
