    Gremlin closed. Looks like some sort of banked slalom being set up for Bodefest.
    Anybody skiing Kinsman and Tramline? They still have them listed as open. But I think it's a bit cruel that they don't mention the lengthy walk back to the lifts without the tram running.

    Last week is was reading about how Cannon would be overrun Sat for Body Fest. Did anyone actually skip Cannon today because of that? Cause I was there today and it was off the wall good and not a lift line to be seen. Full on winter from Boise Rock up to Peabody and up the mountain. Vista, Tramway, U Cannon all great with patch's of fresh. Zoomer lift trails from Avalanche to Zoomer big soft bumps but the best we found was a hardly skied Banchee Slope with 2-3 fresh on top. My son and I cut that up good with 3 consecutive runs from 11:30 to 12:00. Will issue a TR with pictures in the future (got to get my Utah trip up too).

    Yes, I skipped Cannon for this reason. I went to Jay instead. It was 3-6" freshies up top and dust on glacier down low. The glades were the place to be. Team was on wind hold by 12:30. The secondary slush from yesterday started edgeable, but was rock solid by noon.

    Ridiculous unexpected powder day today. Snowed all day yesterday which they groomed into the base over night. Then picked up 6"+ from 5-8am this morning. Blower blanket over perfectly groomed. Amazing!

    Awesome! Yeaterday was pretty awesome save for the wind and I'm sure today was even better.
    Starting to learn that the "notch effect" is a very real thing, not just a marketing ploy....for good and bad!
