Looks like a nice ski...     2012-03-13 08:32:28
and I feel your excitement about getting out, but boy does it look dry! I'm still doing snow dances every day.


Great report!!!     2012-03-13 09:30:17
Hopefully I'll get up there sometime soon.


Nice work fellas     2012-03-13 12:12:35
good to see some ski TR's up! I may have to post some as well.


Nice fellas!     2012-03-13 14:13:25
We were just over on Atlantic that day. Wow was it warm! I took a long nap at 13k in just a light jacket. The snow was like mid May.


Very nice!     2012-03-13 14:42:29
Wish I could have made that outing with you guys. Oh well, we have all apring. Great photos and write-up as usual Ben!


Beautiful shots!     2012-03-13 16:20:42
And a nice group to boot. I'm assuming the shoulder did okay, Brian? Thanks for posting. Happy trails!


Fantastic Day!!     2012-03-13 19:26:17
What a great way to begin the spring ski season. I think you captured me in the photo Ben. I managed a photo of yous guys from Peak 10 (well 2 can be seen at least).


The ski mtneers...     2012-03-13 21:13:03
...are back in action. Good times are ahead for us report readers. Nice report man. I've a feeling the glop will be out earlier than usual this year...? What's goin on with Helmut's shoulder? I'm out of the loop.


Spring already     2012-03-14 08:05:05
Crazy season indeed. Nice write up Benners.

Presto/Prakash - shoulder feels alright, until I think about I-70, then it throbs.


Re:     2012-03-16 09:07:07
Matt - Agreed, we need snow BAD.

Caleb - Was a great day for sure! What did you ski on Atlantic?

Caroline/Presto - Thanks for the kind words!

Prakash - Car wreck on I-70 in January, I got the worst of it financially, Brian got the worst of it physically. We're both doin better now though. Thanks for asking!


Well done!     2012-03-16 13:11:42
Way to make the most of the warm weather. Looks like we may have to way until next year for Pacific's North Couloir

Barring some apocalyptic snow event, I think you're right Carl .
