4 Feet in January

Sorry for the hiatus. I was out sick a couple days. OK, January has been a great month with 4 feet of snow in the New Year. I have heard Monday was the best day of the season. I also heard today was the best day of the season. Right now the skiing is superb. Pali is skiing like a dream. All the snow delayed MGD, but that is about to open. We have several days of sunshine forecast. They are going to be absolutely vintage A-Basin bluebird great skiing kind of days.

I went up today because I heard on your ski report you are 100% open.
I was disappointed.
You are not close to 100%
Was it your mistake or the radio stations ?

Sounds like the radio's issue. On their website and the app it states how much the have open.

Disappointed? There's more than enough terrain open and great snow conditions. Sheesh. Some people will complain about anything.

No kidding, I was 1st chair on fri
morning and the report 3" ( btw, dont believe the hype ). Got on pali at 08:50 and skied north glades and rollercoster my 1st 3 runs and it was above the boot to the knee bottomless powder!!!!!! hands down best day of the season ( imo ). It was my 20th day ( all at the basin ) and man let me tell you it was incredible. I dont care if there was only 2 runs open. It wsa the shizzznit. Been skking A. Basin since 2001 and all over summit. IMHO, there isn't a mtn on planet earth better the the basin...PERIOD. I learned to ski in the midwest, have skied in the north east, all up and down the west coast and everywhere inbetween and A. BASIN is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! 3 reasons why1.)they always under estimate totals ( which has alot to do w/ the great wind at this mtn )
2.) HANDS DOWN BEST SKI PATROL ON PLANET EARTH
3.)50% of mtn is backcountry excisable from this mtn ( 1000 skiable acres really is 2000 when you include all the surrondings a.k.a dave's wave, shit for brains,north/south loveland pass,profession,windows,fingers,
the beavers, etc,etc,etc ).
Well enough said see y'all on thur, fri w/ my 4yr ole son ( he is gonna ski pali for the 1st time fri...yeeee-heeee! got is 1st black 2 fri ago :) then adain on mon w/ my 6yr daughter and mommy. Gonna be epic. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK A. BASIN CREW!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes they aren't 100% open...but they are very close. This is the best I've seen the Basin at this time of the year for a long time. In 20 years of skiing the Basin I don't ever recall be truly 100% open in January.

Yeah you probably should have thought about it being 100% open in January before you got your hopes up.
