    Great job Greg. The snow should be just great....kudos to you getting the mob up here away from the crowds. ...And there's always Saddleback as well.

    Beetlenut: fwiw, once above Portland...traffic disintegrates...

    Steve: Take care of the thumb....man I broke a small bone at my right thumb's base three years ago.....getting stronger, but not being over muscular in wrists...takes a long time, but am still in advanced rehab-mode.....

    The piks you have upthread of The Whip are right after a grooming. Boyne groomed it more frequently than in the past last season, especially late, I think to keep from getting bare spots in the hollows between the bumps. I gotta hunch they'll let it get nice and bumped up for your event.

    Late March and April are the best of times at the Loaf. The sun's high. It's (usually) warmer. The nights are cold enough to set things up nicely overnight. But by mid-morning the bumps soften up and sprout all over the mountain. Hero snow. Snow's deep in the woods. You can spend all day on the upper lifts and avoid the mashed potatoes at the bottom. The Backside softens up early because its east exposure gets first rays. I like to pound myself silly and wind down with a few lazy cruisers on Timberline (the summit lift) at the end of the day. Take in the Washington to Katahdin view.

    No I'm not an employee, just another Mainiac/Loafer. We're proud of our hill. Make the trip--the only regret you'll have is not doing it years ago.

    Now you're talking! Hit Saddleback on Friday, pre-party at the Swig N' Smelt, then make the short drive up to the Loaf for the Friday night party.

    Funny thing is, we're doing a backpacking trip next week from Saddleback to Sugarloaf. The plan is to ascend Saddleback on Thursday via the ski trails, and pick up the AT. On Sunday, we'll hit the summit of Sugarloaf, and descend via the ski trails. We picked this itinerary specifically to build stoke for the ski season.

    Three days of skiing Saddleback and Sugarloaf would be a perfect way to close out the season.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. If I'm going to drive up there, it only makes sense to hit both areas, because I probably won't be back for a while. Hopefully I can make it happen.
    I also do the Twitters.
