Echo ain't helpin' the slacker snowboarder image
Echo Mountain Park, the "all terrain park, all the time" resort near Evergreen that was supposed to open in December, then January, is still not open.
Dude, what a buzz kill.
The weekly progress update on the Web Site is not particularly encouraging:
"Needed elements are slowly falling together.…No opening date set yet, but we’re inching closer… "
This is exactly the type of knuckle-dragging slacker attitude that gave rise to all those 1990s snowboarding jokes, such as:
Three snowboarders are in a car, who's driving? The cops.
How many snow board instructors does it take to change a lightbulb?
Three - one to hold it, one to video tape it and the other to say "AWESOME DUDE!"
What do you call a snowboarder with no girlfriend/boyfriend?
Etc. Etc. Etc.
