It is mid-winter conditions out there. A little bit of snow each day and not too warm. Many people (including many of the Antlers repeat guests) have the Vail Resorts “Epic Pass” this year where you have unlimited skiing at Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone, Breckenridge and Heavenly. It is unrestricted and was sold for just $579 prior to the ski season. The beauty of a pass like this is that you don’t feel like you have to ski a full day each and every day. You can just take a couple of runs. And if conditions aren’t just perfect, who cares….. you can go out later or wait for another day. Today, Sarah and I got on the ski lifts promptly at 3:15pm to finally make two runs for the day. (we were a little slow going today) But a quick ride up some lifts and we were at the top. After a 5 minute break for a hot-tea, we had the whole mountain to ourselves for a run down the mountain! Chris R.
