Tell us about your skiing adventures on Mammoth, Dean.

I think me and my dad have to settle for Killington, VT this winter. No airplane nor car rental required - we can drive.

I have your books. I had hoped to bring them to you in person. Geez.

Pete, most of my skiing adventures on Mammoth Mountain are in the dark, in a white out, out of bounds, navigating by compass and GPS, looking for lost skiers and snowboarders.....and these stories are nearly too numerous to count.

I'll send you my mailing address for the books...thanks.

This was really quite a nice weather event for us....good, heavy snow pack now.

Horsetail Falls is in and FAT.....however, the approach needs to be busted open, and I am not available for the rest of the week.

Roadside is ok but buried in snow.

Just finished another 8 hours in the Worm....ready for a break, if only for a short time.

EDIT: Another 1 to 2 feet in the forecast beginning tomorrow afternoon through Wednesday.

Thee Bishop snow plow just came down my street.Doesn't happen too often.We got about 3".Was gonna go scope some Bishop creek ice potential,but with current avy conditions and new snow it doesn't look wise.Rock is a definite no go as well.Looks like full conditions fly-fishing it is then.Not too bummed ;-) .Only five days left on this license,better use 'em up!!
