Snow, resort openings and winter in October

With new snow pounding the western US we are very pleased to see more and more resort openings and great pictures of snow and skiing. Yesterday, I had the great fortune to ski Copper Mountain in Colorado with the PSIA demo team. The surface conditions were excellent and especially for October! Great carving and cruising snow to get the legs started for the coming winter season. Today first day soreness from using muscles not used in awhile, tomorrow a hot yoga class to stretch it out as we prepare for a big snowy winter.

Just this week Loveland opened on Tuesday here in Colorado.
Now another storm has brought more snow. Reports of feet of snow in Tahoe. Squaw is opening! Kirkwood is posting back country powder shots. The word is Jackson Hole received 10 inches of snow and most western resorts are reporting new snow in the last 2 days with more on the way.

It is going to be a great year so get ready and get out. Get your skis and boards tuned, waxed and ready to go. Mountain Sports Club members enjoy savings up to half price on tunes and additional savings on gear.
