While Rockies fans are calling for one Rocktober, Dave has joined diehard skiers and me-firsters for 2007-08 Opening Day at A-Basin - a whole other kind of Rocktober. He didn't expect good skiing, but I expect good storytelling later today.
The top photo by Jack Dempsey is on the A-Basin site. The photo directly above is from an A-Basin Web cam. Looks like mountainboarding terrain to me.
The forecast says "Sunny and Clear" for the resort. There's a reason we're still in short sleeves: It's October!
