I love stick shift except when I'm in traffic!
I actually did D2 / D3 on my last trip to vail in October in a 2 wheel drive little SUV. Instead of riding the brake I just put it into the lower gears, worked great!
Thanks for the reminder!
On another note I just saw this on weather.com

I took a glance at the mountains a little bit ago thinking of you, there's definitely some ugly clouds over them! But they're also very beautifully snow capped!
Oh, and I love driving stick too. I have yet to own an automatic.
Yeah, that alert came up under the vail forecast so I expect it will get some of that weather. This will probably be my last post until tomorrow. Hopefully the 2 hour time change won't bug me while driving. Just realized that when I'm driving into vail around 11pm/midnight it will really be like 2am for me
Thanks again for all the tips everyone! I joined these forums thinking I would just learn about iPhone stuff, but good to see a great diverse community has formed in addition to the iPhone knowledge.

This is so awesome! First day of lessons we stayed on the bunny slope, but today we headed out to the greens. At first I thought vail's idea of greens was different than mine, but by the end of the day I was flying down the same greens I was a bit scared of going down the first time. The snow did soften up when we went back to the same slopes after lunch which made it a bit slower.

Glad you're having fun! Hey how long are you staying here? If you're leaving today or tomorrow, you might wanna check your flight before heading to the airport. I know some have already been canceled. We're supposed to have up to 20 inches of snow by noon tomorrow.
Our flight out of Denver is Monday morning, so I think by then the drive from Vail should be good as well as the flight out of Denver. We got really lucky, didn't start snowing until early thursday and we got in Wednesday at like 11pm and then it will stop snowing right before we head back.
BTW my calves are killing me this morning, but everything else feels good.
