Rained a lot yesterday at Squaw Valley USA. Only the upper mountain is open - you have to take the funitel up and down. But what snow they have is in pretty good shape.

this just in, you probably did that just for the photo. But please don't ski with your kid on your shoulders. Not meaning to be patronizing, I'm only 54 years old and only recently became an adult, but still you shouldn't do that.

Haha. Semper that is not me and I don't know them. Just cracked me up and I agree that is not how to teach a kid how to ski.

Damn, that thing is toast. I think you are supposed to hang it from a tree now for the Gods.

Nice pics Mike.

Fortunately, a few parts of Montana have been in the early snow this year--Lost Trail got 29" in 48 hrs, and Discovery has had 3 storms that have dumped a foot each after the Turkey Day opening :-)

Hope to have 10 days of lift time in by X-mas...

Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania. 100% man-made boilerplate ice. Two turn hill; one turn to get off the lift, one turn to get on the lift.

Jealous Big Mike. We are back to tropical weather down here at the beach. Yosemite high country wasn't much better. Packed ice.
Heading to Bozeman.

I'm trying to do a different type of shredding right now. First time surfing in Hawaii. Banzai Pipeline just down the road. 9-10' swells.

I didn't shred.

Nature, doooooood. Start at or near the south shore (where ever is mellow) and get your hop up dialed. Then move on to steeper waves. You can even practice at home on the floor, as long as you know if you are goofy or regular. I kind of hesitate to mention this, but might want to consider a series of exercises focused on surfing to help you along. Some of these are geared specifically towards the hop up and I know they work (quicken up the movement). Check ito out if interested (I get no money from this, I just think it helps loads).

Christoph!! Sick stuff man! Snowboard mountaineering is the SHIZNIT! Why hike up it if you can't ride down it! :)

Susan- Pretty Damn Good for a bit till it turned to mash potatoes and alpine got shut down for avy danger.

John- I know I know..... Snow is my first love. I can't just give that up. You'll be happy to hear that I've toned my riding way back from what it used to be. I won't be pushing boundaries anymore. I just wanna ride and have fun.
