Colorado Ski Resorts Whirlwind Tour

I am way behind on my reporting here. I’m going to be covering the last 5 resorts we visited in our Colorado Ski Resorts Whirlwind tour in one post. I have no real excuses for my lack or reporting, other than we visited 12 Colorado ski resorts in 15 days.  We would have done  more, […]

Arapahoe Basin Is Our New Kirkwood

Catching up again, and this post will cover our skiing Vail yesterday and Arapahoe Basin today. Had some good snow at Vail, but we had some great powder snow today at A-Basin.  Full data below – but first we need to wrap up our definitions of the terms we are using to rate these resorts […]

Keystone Impresses and Vail Bowls are Awesome

Catching up again – due to the very slow internet here I have not been able to post daily.  Today we are taking a breather – after skiing 5 different resorts in 7 days.  We also traveled from Nevada to Colorado during this time, so we have been busy. Two days ago, we skied Keystone […]

Steamboat Sucks but Breckenridge Rocks

Have to catch up on the activities of the boys from Dover – so I am covering two resorts we have been to over the last few days.    We went to Steamboat two days ago – and frankly – Steamboat sucks.  Went to Breckenridge yesterday – and I have to say Breckenridge rocks.  Here […]

Kirkwood’s Deep and Alta Bites Back

Bro and I skied Kirkwood almost a week ago, and snow was awesome deep.  The Sierras have been getting hammered and Kirkwood has over 500 inches so far – with more falling as we speak.  Crazy good. We headed right to the backside and had some great runs off of what we call Hamilton Pass.  […]

Family Ski Week – Days 30-33

Just wrapped up a family ski week and it was a blast.  Well, it really wasn’t a full week, but ole bro and I did 5 days in a row and by the end it we felt like it was at least a week – maybe a month. Yesterday was the last day and on […]

Sierra Nevada Skiing – Days 28 and 29

I am a bit behind on my reporting here, so I thought I’d better catch up.  Have done some Sierra Nevada skiing lately, but it has not really inspired me to make my usual rapid and witty reports. There is currently plenty of snow on the hills, but it is not light or fluffy.  It […]

Sunny Kirkwood – Days 25 and 26

Skied sunny Kirkwood two times over the last few days. It was sunny and warm and very spring-like in terms of snow conditions – hard in the morning but softening up by the afternoon.  Lots of fun to ski once the snow softens up, as it holds an edge and you can just cook right […]

Saalbach Ski Resort – Days 11 and 12

Today we skied the Saalbach Ski Resort for our final day of skiing in Europe.  This last year they put in new lifts that connect 3 resorts into one – and it is now very large, with tons of terrain. The 3 resorts it combined were Hinterglemm, Leogang and Fieberbraun. The resort looks great, but […]

Skiing Kitzbuhel – Days 8,9,10

Spent the last 3 days skiing Kitzbuhel and having a really good time.  I’ve fallen behind on doing my blog posts, and I don’t really have a good reason for that, but I’m sure it’s my brothers fault. I mean, I know it’s not my fault – so it must be his fault – right?  […]
