Chester's Somewhat Daily Report - 12/17/94

Post by Chester Bullo » Mon, 19 Dec 1994 03:59:22


Yes, I am still alive, and no, I have not been out skiing instead of
keeping you people informed.  The last couple of days have been EXTREMELY
busy for me.  If any of you have been up here and seen someone scampering
from one ticket office to another, it was me.  Thursday looked to be a
good powder day, and I was stuck here at the base working.  What a
bummer.  It has been almost a week now since I have been on the hill, and
I don't anticipate being back out until Tuesday, my next day off.  As
such, I don't feel that I am in the position to give a report on snow
conditions.  Sorry, but I really would not like to mislead anyone.  I do
know that between Wednesday and Thursday night we received 4" of snow,
much needed in places.  I am still not brave enough to try my new K2's
out there yet, so you be the judge.  

Right now I think I would like to respond to a comment made about the
Powder Express card and the Ski-3 card.  We are researching ways of
offering the same type of thing next year.  For those of you who are not
aware of these cards, they allow you to go straight to the lift and jump
on.  When your card is scanned, it automatically charges you credit card
the rate for that day, eliminating the need to stand in line for a lift
ticket, and again to get on the lift.

In miscellaneous news, it seems that the ski patrol at
Keystone/Breckenridge/A-Basin has reached an agreement with management,
though I did not read the article in the paper regarding this.  Also, the
Copper Mountain Ski Patrol now has a prescence on the Net.  They can be

if you don't, send some mail welcoming them among us.  I meet with the
marketing folks next Friday regarding this WWW thing, so that ball seems
to finally be rolling well.  Gotta run, see everyone tomrrow...

I skied Copper Thursday, it was not what I would call a powder day (I
had a blast anyway, demoed some Olin DXs skies, met a really cool
Copper instructor who talked to me about what it takes to be an
instructor and basically gave me a free lesson for a couple of runs.
All in all it beat the heck out of working.  Chester, I would have tried to
meet you, but I thought Thursday was your day off.  Still lots of
rocks there, but getting better.  Skied Winter Park today where they
reported 10" during the Wed.- Thurs time and they have lots of rocks
too despite reporting 35" base.

Cool.  I like Copper & Winter Park better than the rest of the resorts
near Denver, so I'd buy one.  At least the ticket sales people ar starting
get the hang of the Coppr Card so it doesn't take 20 minutes to get a ticket
with one.
