Matt Lauer

Un-Vailed in Colorado

TMZ now knows where in the world Matt Lauer is ... skiing his face off in Vail.

As we previously reported ... Matt took the week off from "Today" to spend time with his kids ... smack in the middle of a critical sweeps period ... when show ratings = ad money.

The pic shows Matt purchasing a pair of ski boots today at Surefoot in Vail, Colorado.

The salesman tells TMZ, Lauer came in and said, "Gimme the best thing you have for my foot" ... so he obliged.

Coincidentally, the salesman's friend is Matt's ski instructor ... who called Matt a "solid skier."

While Matt plays in the snow, the "Today" show is getting trounced by "Good Morning America" -- on Monday, "GMA" beat "Today" by 800,000 viewers. On Tuesday, nearly a million.

And today should be devastating for "Today" because it's Robin Roberts first day back on "GMA."

In fairness, we're told Matt has taken off in years past at exactly the same time -- when his kids are off from school.

I watched Today every day until Matt threw the crap all over Ann Curry who wasn't that great either. But no one deserved that humiliation. That was a gift for me because I could then start with GMA which I love, love, love. So I thank NBC for that. Matt sucks.

NO RUSH there will be plenty of time to PLAY soon. Now without his TUPEE it won't be long although its quicker to disperse of an AGING LADY than a man!

Seems only SMOKEY THE BEAR is happy with MATT LAUER'S career choice. As long as he stays out of the forest.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
For viewers.... our wish is to have the bald headed, phony smiling, back- stabbing jerk skip off into his fake talented world.
