Nice turns BCD, would be so cool to shred some of those couloirs & chutes above Bishop. What peak is that on?

Nice indeed bcd. I was looking at potential lines when I was there. It looks pretty sweet!

Edit GF I didn't forget about you, looking forward to our tour as well. Are you gonna come North? Where do you wanna go?

Nice Susan! Shred it up!

I was solo today, which I love, because I get to set my own pace and ride what I want. I got four awesome pow laps in once the alpine opened. Not much for photos today.. Just this little slice of heaven.




I love knowing where to ride on weekends!

Oh we did a lap to top of holyburn then skied the western slopes back to the cars -pretty nicely filled in -one can almost open it up with fear of nurfing a tip into a bent over branch -that will likely come in the next few days. Hey it would be great if you can drag us out for a tour with loads of turns in your parts perhaps once the xmas rush settles down?

Kirkwood was awesome on Friday and Saturday. They only predicted a trace of snow, but it snowed about a foot up top. It was super cold so it put down some of the driest fluffiest snow i have slid on in awhile!!!

About to drop the cornice.....pow awaits!

Now we are sitting at home contemplating making the drive up tomorrow morning. We're worried hwy 88 might be closed and the winds might be too strong to open the top....I think we'll probably be there tomorrow

Another day, another session -i do think that this is the finest skiing in recent (20 yr) memory for the north shore -we've got depth and none of that rain crust to contend with -just fluffy coastal goodness!

looks like continued cool and moist NW flow for another week, then potential for arctic air around xmas / New year. Good action right down to CA

Nice gf. I had a good day too. Would you say the snow was lighter than usual today??
I thought so.

Nice Bruce. Looks like our typical cold snap high pressure for the tourists? Excellent. Time to get the sled going.

We got 14cms today



Which is nice when you're only expecting 5 or 6... The hills were dead, and I met up with an excellent crew today. The pace was awesome. No waiting in line, no waiting at the lifts for people, just go go go. So sick. I'm bagged right now...

I only got one shot today, but it was the only one that really mattered...

Hey Mike, how have you fixed the random rotation that happens when you try to post a pic from your Iphone ?
