    I will most likely go on Saturday as well. The forecast is looking good, judging by this past weekend I think a 5:30am departure is in order.

    Sigh. I remember the days when I could leave at 6:30 and have clear roads.

    Left at 6:15 on Sunday and it only added about 10 mins. to the normal trip time. But I have to say that traffic is way worse now than when I stopped skiing almost 4 years ago. It's really got me thinking about having a place up there.

    If I left my house at 6:30 I wouldn't hit Morrison until 7. Way too late.

    It is crazy. But, getting up early still saves you from traffic, specially the Floyd Hill mess down to the US-6 on-ramp. Those measly 30min (from 5:45am to 6:15am) make a huge difference.

    That's why this is the T.I.T.S. thread. It's the #1 reason why we work weekends and ski during the week. Traffic and people. :yahoo:

    Should be a great day for corridor and Steamboat for sure with another significant storm wednesday into Thursday. Joel is predicting as much as a foot for us. Hopefully, its blower this time.

    my Phat skis are now 96 underfoot with more focus on the profile and flex. I am selling my Faction ct 3.0's. I just dont like anything that wide anymore.

    Unfortunately I'm sick. Not the flu luckily, but I'm probably out for at least a week. You can thank me later... ;)

    yeah, I was skiing with an instructor friend recently in deep snow and we were working on some foot work. What I realized was that with 108 underfoot, I just couldn't feel the snow they way I needed to. things just felt too muted. A lot of the came form the wide shovels and tails of course.

    The wider skis are much more of a help in lower angle powder, they offer more float/glide and lets you enjoy even deep powder on slopes < 20º

    At speed and on steeper slopes the narrower skis (around 100mm width) are definitely fun and offer better feel.
