Loafer and Davis - Skiing Nicely

The skiing and grooming on Loafer and Davis is really nice. I had beautiful runs on each of them this morning. I know when The Beavers opened these trails were a bit rougher than some of you liked. Some of you mentioned that to me. I think you will find a totally different story out there right now. The corduroy is smooth and fun. The cat drivers have done a terrific job getting them in shape. This involved a lot of work with the winch cat. More snow has also helped. Both trails have some steeper, more challenging pitches, but they are a great ride.

Glad to hear this. While I like some trails a bit rougher and love tree skiing, I did find Loafer a bit hairy (and scary) a while back. I'm looking forward to getting back over there soon!

After breaking my hand in the beavers I’m ready to take them on again. Missing the pow

Since when have people get so bent out of shape about grooming conditions? While I get it that people (including myself at times) like to ski groomers, what are their expectations for high alpine, natural snow condition groomers at or above treeline? A-Basin didn't build its legacy groomers after-all.

I think people believed the "blue" and "groomed" designations were not entirely accurate. Along with some new trail warning signs I assume this is another part of the resorts response to the criticisms. Resort wants the trails to be blue and is listening to the public about what the trails need. Looks like a positive, cooperative effort to improve the place on both sides.

I also don't believe it should be a blue the first little bit of it would be ok to call blue but the rest is definitely a soild black.
