Default Loveland Opening?!

Just heard on NPR that Loveland may open this Friday. A-Basin is scheduled to open on the 21st. Some one go ski so i can live vicariously through your adventures... I'm not allowed to until 2006.

Default One run open

So the skiing was good for what it was. One run early season. We got there at 9am skied until we were ready for lunch (10:15) Had a chili dog, bloody mary, beer. Back out for two more runs and decided it was getting to crowded so we went home. Good to get some fresh air before my wife gives birth to our second child on thursday.
