yeah but have you guys actually triggered or seen any? It must have seen a fair bit of testing yesterday....

No Pwl activity yesterday bruce. No activity at all actually. The Caa forecaster blog predicted that. He said it might take a couple days for the big slabs to form up.

Chocolate bowl looked like it went natural along most of avalanche alley a couple days ago.

We played it super safe yesterday, staying on the super low angle ridge and playing in the meadows. Plenty of other people being stupid though. They busted the gauntlet (the chute on the left of my brandywine bowl pic), and boatloads of turbo couch owners could be seen drinking beer directly below avalanche slopes. All the coq boys are up this weekend too, since the coq is closed, and they aren't known for their snow safety skills.

Thank god it's low vis today. Hopefully that will keep some people outta trouble..

The stupid are awesome. They provide a supremely valuable role in society as suicide bombers.

Yeah should be fun, I've never been but got a good crew to show me the ropes: Joel, Cam & Henkel! I'm not sure what I'm more concerned about tho: PWL or LSD in my beer? Probably won't take my peeps off the entire time.

We went skiing a couple weeks ago here in the East. I haven't skied here in over 10 years. So I hit a tree around 30 mph and took a lil damage

Putting these here to remind me why I will go West or Europe next year.

Lavanche is good to go then? How about South side Deli? I thought all that low elevation stuff was a no go for the season

Nice shots Mike.

South side deli is not recommended this year, might be better now but a week and a half ago it was rowdy @ the bottom for sure.

Top 500' was amazing tho.

Nice pics John! Both those zones look like they could be fun with some freshies.. There's lots of snow in the east this year no?


I'm not gonna lie Bruce. As Ryan has said, it's still a little boney down there.


But the foundation has been laid. I'm a strong believer that we will have at least one more system in march with good temperatures.

A low angle, but fun one at Kirkwood on Saturday.

Change the setting to 720hd for the best quality.
