Top Pali

Louis was out on the hill yesterday doing some snowcat work. He shared these images from the top of Pali with me. Plenty of snow up there.

As previously mentioned, the Pallavacini chairlift will be replaced this summer. We will be selling and auctioning some of the chairs. Stay tuned to the website for details and sign up for email announcements at Pali Chair Sales.

Polis actually made it possible today. May 23 is very doable.

The discussion should be about why uphill access is closed. Restricting national forest land from the people. What a shame.

This is the marshmallow test folks.....get it right and we can ski fall of 2020+2021. If not, we’ll be stuck commenting on blogs instead of shredding it next season.

Respectfully, this has nothing to do with your perception of restriction of public access from a national forest. It is about the use/operating permit granted by the forest service to the ski area. A Basin has been a very good partner with the forest service. If they weren't there wouldn't have been a snowball chance you know where they would have allowed them to open up the Beavers

This comment sound's like sound judgement. Thanks.

Al, these pictures have helped me get through, and I appreciate you continuing to post from a place I love so much! You do a wonderful job with this blog, and have for so long. Please keep it up! See you up there as soon as the time is right.

I just waxed my Salomon skis up with swix low floro 10. Its good for spring slush as in late may skiing. Arapahoe beat everybody out for opening. Al pull out a miracle and open back up for Colorado skiers this spring !!

If you just posted when you plan to re-open and leave it at that, that would be sufficient. The rest is immaterial, unnecessary, only placates patrons with an exaggerated emotional attachment to the place, and misses the big picture. Proof are the few comments on the posts. No one cares except when and if you re-open, bub. Focus on that.

Sunday morning 5:29 stuck at home. Checked out AB cams. I found magestic purple mountains. Stunning view! Thanks. Lb

Great shots Al. The top of Pali has probably never looked like that this time if year.

Al, thank you for continuing to post these incredible photos! A-basin is home and though I can't be there, the photos still remind me of the vibes with the good people on each lift up, jigs in 6th Alley, and the feeling of discovering a new little pocket of the Basin. I miss it, but I know this isn't forever.

As you have said before if people don't want to see this kind of content, they should return to the blog at another time or just keep an eye out on the website for it says, "Open."

A-basin needs to do what is best for the entire community, not just a few individuals. The Basin is more than just skiing so please continue to spread the good energy.

Dear Eagle County Resident, the emotional attachment people have to this place is what makes it great.

I think I can hear Grizzly Road calling

Ryan said...

I could not have said it better. The emotional attachment to A-Basin is similar to that of a favorite social gathering place, be that a local grocery store, restaurant, pub or grill, etc. and is an integral part of the brand. For those of us who ski here, it is part of what makes it feel like an extension of "home".

Al, keep up the good work and we will see you soon, whether it be this spring/early summer or in the fall!

Why do people complain about uphill at ski areas
Just go find another uphill pitch and skin up.
Not rocket science

I am terrified of a very, very small chance of hospitalization and much smaller chance of death. Keep up the good work and stayed closed till the 22/23 season just to be safe.
