    I hate to say it, but the Jordan lift typically gets the most wind holds. If it is windy at the River, it's likely to be windiest at Jordan. Little white Cap at the far other end seldom shuts down for wind, as it is well protected. White Cap (Tempest) seems to keep running in the wind. Barker...

    They got an inch and a half last night, and wow!!! Buttery smooth skiing until it skied off today. We did a couple runs on Lost Princess and Vortex, that helped with some of the hard packed moguls. Otherwise it was a great day there. My buddy asked what we did to deserve this? I replied...

    Skier dies at Whiteface

    Cervical skull fracture> Seems like that is basically where the skull and vertebra meet???? Basically broke his neck and maybe some skull damage as well. If it was that much impact, would a helmet really have prevented death? They are only effective up to the speed at which you basically fall...

    I found Lost Princess. After skiing down it, the best skier in our group said it needs to soften up just a bit, a little more sun on it. I told him it'd be a little warmer in 10 minutes!

    Downdraft and Black hole are open. Downdraft, in particular, skied really nice today. Soft and edgeable. 4 laps on it! Having fun! Lines aren't too bad, mid week, of course. About the only game in town, teh smaller local mountains are just opening up and only have a few trails available, so the...

    I gotta say you can not fault the River for their snowmaking efforts. They are blowing all over the place and going back and blowing maintenance snow. I am just happy to be skiing at the river, other local ski areas simply are not doing too much right now.

    Jibe did ski better today. The crowds were a bit bigger, Friday is the new Saturday with folks starting their weekend early. I saw little White Cap was groomed out, Assumption anyways, I can't imagine they didn't do the whole of it, but no lift operators to run the Little White Cap chair. The...

    It was a brisk cold windy day today, and the crowds were sparse. I think the weather and being a Thursday all contributed to it. As I skied around, I could see snow guns on American Express, which we skied under, White Heat, Airglow and Black Hole. I just gotta say I am impressed with the...
