In The Mood is an open ski run off of Loveland's Chair Eight. It's arguably the best ski run in the Chair Eight Valley.
You can access In The Mood from
Chet's Run or from
The Plunge. I'm not sure that one way is better than the other. The Plunge gives
you two or three steep turns, but
Chet's Run enables you to experience the full length of In The Mood. There are some small clumps of
bottom trees at In The Mood are some of the best powder at Loveland. The trees provide a wind-protected area where
snow can settle after blowing across the vast open expanses of the Chair Eight Valley and the North Ridge above. The runout from
In The Mood is
Awesome, which takes you back to the Bottom of Chair Eight.
Chair Eight does require minor navigational skills, unlike most areas at Loveland. With every other chair (as a general rule),
just keep skiing and you'll wind up at the bottom, often passing the reload or bottom of a majority of the chairs along the way.
However, Chair Eight is it's own little world, and to return to the rest of Loveland, you'll either need to take a high catwalk
traverse, staying to the skier's right, which takes you back to the Land of
Chair Four. Or alternately, take
The Face (very south
facing - watch for rocks) back to a foot tunnel under I-70 which will exit at the Base Lodge.
