    Looking like a weekend to take a nice long run Saturday morning, schedule play dates for the kids, and catch up on some volunteer stuff that I uh signed up for but haven't done.

    Certain spots on the big groomers definitely get scrapey. How big the scrapey spots are and how quickly they get scraped depend on conditions and how much is open. Usually it's just specific spots,...

    The limiting factor lapping SR today was lines, which were apocalyptic at the base of the Locke lift and bad at the midstation. The snow was good, particularly on top, and crowds on the trails...

    Yeah. Bowling's weird because there's a max perfect score that isn't *that* far out of reach for mere mortals, but I get the impression that there are similar, multiple levels of unworldliness for...

    Man, this brings back more memories than the average spam post. Manali and Vashisht are indeed tons of fun and a great jumping-off spot for treks in the surrounding mountains. I would love to go back...

    For real.

    Has anyone ridden an 8-pack before? I've never seen a chair bigger than a 6-pack. I'd prefer a gondola/tram for 8 or more. I have to think most trail pods would be overwhelmed with the...

    Hiking trail which apparently will be used as part of a half marathon course next month. I'd be very surprised if it's ever an on-map ski trail again. It requires too much snow and would get scraped...

    Thanks for the pics, guys. It is cool to see how things are looking, although seeing the Crossbow sign...oh, never mind.

    The Ridge to River course looks fun and extremely strenuous. That will be...

    It doesn't give you the whole story for operating P&L, but I'd say it's very important for the health of the sport and industry. The more people have more good days, the more people will fall in love...

    Sure, choices different from what you'd do are absolutely ludicrous. Other people doing things, I tell ya :rolleyes:

    No new ski areas for me this year. I found many new lines at SR that I didn't...

    Funny weekend. Wind hold day yesterday, then a really nice spring day today with a variety of fresh snow properties from one area to another. The only downside was that the mountain has initiated...

    This sums up my feelings about that peak very well. I really like that area, and I do White Heat maybe three times a season.

    The funny thing about the terrain at the very top is that it's only...

    SR was fantastic this long weekend. I'd have to call it the best weekend of the season so far. Friday night's precip didn't mess up the snow pack much at all. There were heavy powder leftovers all...

    Well, sure, it needs snow to be good. Have you ever been impressed by a half open mountain on a groomer day?

    It's probably true that it's more of a late season than an early season mountain. It...

    MLK Sunday was fantastic.

    I don't really do TRs any more. Just too much typing for the payoff, particularly if the ski day was unremarkable. I rarely stop and take pictures while skiing unless...

    As mentioned, there was plenty of room on the trail. He could have gone just as fast without...

    Another season, another early Barker breakdown. That's frustrating. Last year it ran pretty well after one early issue, so hopefully they'll only need to fix it once this year.
