Whistler Mountain opened today with a 10' base + man made on 6 runs. I skipped it. Didn't have my pass yet plus I just can't get all cranked up about crowded groomers anymore..

We did get another 10' during the day though and it's still snowing so i think i might hit up a few runs tomorrow.

Got my pass today.


I've been skiing since I was five, and in high school I switched to snowboarding for powder, and I never looked back.

I moved to Whistler when I got out of high school so I could do stuff like this.

Lapo, Powder Mountain.



Eventually I bought a sled so I could do stuff like this,

Luke Roopin Brohm






And of course jump stuff,

Eric SENDING!


I wish I had the balls to go that big off a hip!


I love snow in all its forms, but powder is the best!!!

Oh Big Mike, NICE NICE NICE.
Anyone with real time, "boots on the ground" info on Bridger Bowl or conditions in Hyalite Canyon in Bozeman please chirp up. I'd like to head up there after Thanksgiving if conditons are good.

Thanks,

Things are looking better on TheBig. . . even though it's sunny to the north of here, raining overhead, and BLACK as the Ace of Spades to the south. . .

This little puppy just popped up in the fantasy charts for next week. Snow levels are predicted to start high (above 7k) to start but lower over the 5 day storm period. Mammoth Mountain is thinking 10:1 ratios out of this monster - woohoo - think 5-6 feet!!!!

hey there say, ekat... we just got our first snow...
well, had a few flurries, but this stuck a bit...

VERY thin, though... not much...
but it more of an 'offical' snow is here now...
had it off and on for two days...
maybe tomorrow, not sure...

none on sidewalks, it melts off... but
the grounds are dusted here and there now, and
topped little bits, on 'tops' can now be noticed... :)

will try to post a tiny pic of the
view of it, from last night, through the ol' window, :)

it will be the shed, with it's first snow...
:) (not first HEAVY snow, mind you) :))

Ladd and I rode lifts at Discovery today, decent base and it snowed most of the day for some early area pow.

Tomorrow off to Big Sky for a few days to use up some of my "Free(k) Week" card :-)))

Excellent! At least somebody's gettin' some.
Our rain turned into thin snow. Meh. It's still November.
