Was at Mount Spokane in E Washington today, the last nordic trail work day of the year, and it was a good thing. Started snowing about noon, was sticking pretty well by 4:00. We have ~35K of trails, and are getting a 14' bombardier this year. It's a Washington State Sno-Park, so for $80 a year, you can jam as many people in your car as often as you can and ski all day. Quite a deal. It's the best x-c between Methow and...I don't know how far east.

Stuneberry...I think i skied at mt. spokane back in 85 before they were grooming...if i remember correctly the road to the ski area was long , straight , and steep...? I remember skiing at this funky little bootleg ski area called achilles ranch near Priest River.. The care-taker had turned the property it into a small nordic center...On the sly i think...? wet snow falling here...

Awesome! Thanks for sending the white stuff down our way. I think it's just a teaser but it got me all tingly. I'd love to return from the red southwest to the white mtns. Oh yeah

Nita, it looks nice with the ornamental artsy-woodsy Billy-porn above the window. But it's just not "the same place."

Know what I mean? And did you mean http://sunsetinn-yosemitecabins.com/ ?

Hey, Nickell's one of the most repressed artists I know. If he let himself go, he'd surprise us. He's gotta make a living, though.

He's an old wooden ski guy. The tales he and Mathis got 'bout skinny skiing could fill many a night.

Is it snowing anyplace in the Park? Is Tioga gonna close? Has it closed?

Snowing above 6k, tioga is closed for the time being, but maybe not for the season. They will reassess after the storm.

Why do you torment me with pictures of skis and powder? I have spent the better part of the day trying to chew my leg off and escape from this cubicle. Why do you torment me so?
