    Ton of powder

    I skied Breckenridge today. The conditions were excellent as it has been dumping snow the last couple of days in most Colorado ski resorts.

    One of lifts was opened while I was sking and it was a couple of feet of powder.

    I'm excited about next weekend when I plan on sking either Vail or Steamboat.

    I didn't pay attention to which lift it was but it was pure heaven. It wasn't the T-bar though because it was still closed.

    You couldn't from where I lived in Alaska. However if you lived in Anchorage, there is always Alyeska. Alyeska gets a ton of snow and is only an hour drive from Anchorage.
