It's about time to get this thread started. Vail seems to be shaping up well. The Dez is soaking wet. Seventh Tentacle and the Fang need some time. Spiral Staircase looked a bit desperate. But climbs like Cupcake corner, Amphibian, Redbull and Vodka, Hooded Cobra, and all the stuff on the right side of the amphitheater seem to be in!
I heard from a friend of a friend that Lambs Slide has some fun ice right now.
All that being said, it's time to get psyched!

Ames isn't quite in, Bridalveil is still a bit wet, Smear o Fear is still a bit dry, the Stairway to Heaven could probably use some time to form up a little nicer, and I'd probably consider Mixed Emotions to be "thin but in". On a brighter note, avy conditions are excellent across the board!
This is a hilarious thread. I'm glad I'm not alone in the excitement for ice.
As for Lamb's Slide...I wouldn't recommend it until the temps dip a bit more. As of a few weeks ago, it was mushy, open running runnels of water, and dangerous and frequent rockfall. I'm not talking about the occasional pebble. There were fist and softball sized rocks plummeting down every minute starting at sunrise.
I'd say in a few weeks if the rocks start to freeze up again, the ice should be grand! =)
