Let the ski/riding season begin. Arapahoe Basin opened their runs to those who just couldn’t wait another 30 days (Vail opening day 11/21/08). I had to go check out the famous “white ribbon of death.” As to be expected the one open run was crowded with die hard snow addicts. It was the place to be seen on a Monday in the Rocky Mountains…with all the latest fashion trends for the 08/09 season in full effect. Get your neon out of the closet because the 80’s made their way back to the snow this year. On a more serious note…thanks to A-Basin for making snow! The ski conditions were surprisingly awesome. I’m headed back for some more man-made Rocky Mountain Champagne next weekend. Hope to see you there.
