Colorado ski season has closed.

[from Pali's Pitch e-mail notice this afternoon]
Closing day, Wednesday, july 2

The 2002-2003 ski season has come to an end. Mother Nature has made the
decision to end the 02-03 Colorado ski season today, July 2. We were
totally optimistic about making it until the 4th but the last few day of
hot temperatures made it unrealistic. We figured it wasn't something to
promote when our loyal riders and skiers had to hike to the base of the
lift every run. As luck would have it Arapahoe Sports has just received
a shipment of commemorative 2002-2003 season tee-shirts. If you feel
(like we do) that the Basin has had an epic 2002-2003 season, head to
our web site a little bit later this summer and you can purchase one.

Damn, sad news indeed.
Not much of a suprise. I have been monitoring the Loveland cam,
and the white part would get a little smaller each update.
Now what the hell am I going to do this weekend?
Hey, Mike, thanks for the update.

16 weeks of waiting for Loveland to open. I think I can make it.

Not that Sundance. Sundance Mountain, Rocky Mountain National Park,
Colorado.

This is what Bruno and I did yesterday (5 July) while you all were enjoying
the heat:

Quite literally actually. But it was all good sitting in my
Mastercraft, tied up to a Nautique, and a Ski Centurion, and
about 100 other boats, while listening to a band play on top
of a houseboat, gals that were having trouble keeping their
tops on, framed by the houseless limestone bluffs that line
the lake, and enough cheap cold beer to keep a Bud Light fan
happy for years.

Nice pics. Seems like a very long run.



You people need to see the sun more often. You sound like kids just
learning about sex. LOL

ago but he still likes to drop in and hear you all bitch about the crowds,
costs, long drives, etc.)

What, there's no snow on the volcano?

Oh, sorry, I didn't mention that I live on Oahu. No snow here. Our most
recent volcano was what you know as "Diamond Head." It's last eruption was
~250k years ago.

However, the Big Island of Hawai'i has two volcanoes: one active, one
dormant, that reach almost 14,000ft and are occasionally covered in snow.
In fact, "Mauna Kea," at 13796 ft, literally means "White Mountain." It's a
pretty [email protected] impressive site. I lived in CO for many years and the 14ners
there were always beautiful to look at but considering that you are already
standing at 5-6k ft when you are looking at them... Now come out here and
stand on the shore or, better yet, on a boat a few miles off shore, and look
at mountains rising 14k feet right up out of the ocean... Not only that,
but these mountains are rising miles from the ocean floor. Measured from
the ocean floor, they are by far the tallest mountains on earth.

No skiing but really good diving, sailing, kayaking, surfing, ... anything
to do with water sports...
