It feels good to be so completely destroyed. 6 laps on HG was a gift this afternoon! They got that sucker running like a swiss watch now. Best pow runs of the season up there for me today. A 3rd beer will put me on tilt! Looking forward to tomorrowLooks like HG just re-opened (again!). I managed to get one of the handful of chairs that loaded the 2nd time it opened this morning (a bit after 11 I think it was). Didn't even make it all the way up before they closed it again...but that run down Paradise was absolutely one of my all time best runs. That powder was DEEP up there. Incredible.
Did you hop into any of the woods off Valley House?
Great weekend. made peace with winter for me. now ready for spring skiing. for the record, 8 powder days, 4 at SB 4 in BC which is about my average.
storm skiing saturday. got stuck on heavens gate with Hawk and then went over to mellon. cars parked as far as the eye could ski but not crowded.
sunday morning got to LP before 9 and still had to park all the way at the back behind the compressor. Even with heavens gate and castlerock down it didnt seem crowded. At the height before lunch the line at bravo was about 10 minutes. my theory is, there a lot of ikon pass holders skiing but few day trippers, no buses, and those are the folks who don't know wtf theyre doing and make things chaotic.
anyway, caught HG when it started up around 2 pm. paradise was sublime except for the dickhead who turned into me as I was going down the headwall skiers left. slightly sprained ankle but otherwise fine. Paradise woods was great. lot of snow there.
can't think of a reason they didnt run castlerock yesterday. lift was spinning the whole day. weak sauce.
little birdie told me they're looking at replacing the nrx summer '23.
