Moose?! We thought you hung up your skis and went to the desert with Donini! Glad you're still around. Tomorrow should be good. Kunlun Shan could be there. Look for him usually way out Palisades. I'll be back up for next week's storm. BTW, where is that other KW ice wall? And Stewart, I really envy your climbing the ice lines in Red Cliffs. Thanks for sharing those shots (and keeping the thread relevant to climbing!)

Perfect conditions at Heanenly. Powder, cold, no people.

Footloose, I need to be in the Bay Area on Monday, but I will be back Tuesday-Friday. I was planing to go climbing at Woodfords, but the winter came back. Going to Indian Creek mid April. Let me know when you hit the slopes.

The ice picture was a joke. Taken by the dumpster.

Looks like tomorrow we'll have a ST skiers' gathering at Kirkwood. LucyPink, Footie, T.W.P., Moosedrool, and friends! (Footloose?)

Hoping for decent snow conditions.

And it is awesome!

Hey Split. Yes, got into KW before they closed the Pass on Thursday, but Moose and TP were too late. A foot of fresh and very few powder skiers, but they shut the whole place down at 1:00 for lighting no-one ever saw. Got a tour of Heavenly with these guys yesterday, big fun! One more wet storm this week then its down the E Side and into the desert for BC skiing and climbing. Will likely miss another RIM Club meeting (the only bummer.)

Crazy that KW is closing today. Round top was very nice yesterday. Moon crescent was like riding a bowl.;)

Moose - I got a call from you yesterday but it dropped, called back then dropped again. Pocket dial?

If you were calling to tell me to come up to KW for some shredding, good call.

Hey Maureen, I am in Indian Creek. Climbed today with Jim, Jay, Kitty(?), and Roger. Jim made me lead some off-width. I did it, but I am in better skiing shape than climbing.

I will be skiing my last days of the season the last weekend of April at Heavenly. Come over to Minden. Ewa will be there too.

Footloose, I was skiing with Footie.

He does not look like you. No mistake from my side.

LOL

Btw, I will be climbing at Woodfords last weekend of May.

Have you changed your phone number? I always get your machine.
