i've never had it on tap...good to know next time i'm up that way.
glad you recognized that you'd essentially drank a bottle of wine:biggrin:
06-05-2013, 11:42 AM
indeed it is...my bad; the shortcomings of multi-tasking rear their ugly heads.

nice job gang!:yourock:
...love the founders breakfast stout.
but label notwithstanding that beer is NOT for infants:fmicon:
05-28-2013, 01:11 AM
....but good turns were had for sure. upper escapade was deep, if grabby. the outline of my pole baskets says it all; as does the workings of the wind: deep here, bare there. ...

and now some pics before i get back into bed:
9:30 am: superstar looking mighty strange after all these weeks
met up with goniff after a lap or two and it was time to see what was...

THE HIGH SCORE!
05-27-2013, 10:42 AM
you had me with the patrol shack footage :biggrin:
edit: nice! this will also be PTT:yourock:
05-27-2013, 09:38 AM
there was indeed a whole other, wintry world beyond superstar. rock skis not required (though that's what i brought for that long lap with goniff). skins were not needed either as the snow was grabby...

^^ i'll be on praxis BCs/dukes/factor 130s, brown pants.

not i. was in bed well past then.
one week ago today...for posterity.
05-24-2013, 09:13 PM
nice pics! that wall looks cool. will be interesting to see what kind of 40 year old treasures you find up there.
^^^ tBatt...late on the answer, but I received a memorial day w/e email from jay...
05-24-2013, 02:53 PM
^^ joeys drive 6 hours north to SKIN?? wouldn't they then be ernies?
wow! even k-mart is looking to get 3-9" through sunday. too bad there's no base up top.
05-24-2013, 12:44 PM
it's official...not that Jay ever overestimates snow totals:fmicon:
05-24-2013, 07:45 AM
uncredible...but i like!:biggrin:
nearly page top tunes...SNOW
05-23-2013, 12:42 PM
bummer! as i feared the long weekend's lone sunny day will be too little too late...might hike monday as well, depending on what's left...
still, it's been a helluva spring.
05-23-2013, 06:32 AM
^^^ figured you'd be up high...the micro-pow comment was directed at the naysayers who thought there was no chance of any more snow at K.
...meanwhile still waiting for the forecast...
05-23-2013, 04:58 AM
ha! ONE FOOT OR MORE. that's all. :fmicon:
micro-pow day at K?
05-22-2013, 02:57 PM
haha, you scared me for a minute...i thought i was gonna read that they were throwing the towel in for the season. friday...
05-22-2013, 08:06 AM
yup, was looking good for sat-mon just yesterday afternoon.
went all crap in a big way :-/
05-21-2013, 11:39 AM
you're welcome and glad you like! i'll have another tasty brew or two for you to try out this w/e.
and thank you again for the free ticket...as you had hoped, it made all the difference in getting...
05-21-2013, 05:54 AM
too bad we missed you on sunday...we were parked about 8 cars lookers left of your bike...and had headies and black choc stouts on hand.
we must have just missed you.
05-20-2013, 11:15 PM
...as MINAW reported, the weather went crap on us but we had a good crew on-hand...and after sitting out during the drizzle, the snow got quite nice (as i had predicted:cool:)...the handful of us...
05-20-2013, 08:36 AM
^^ did you guys stay past the rain??
we had a good little crew: bern43, MNIAW, moguljunkie, scottski and goniff. we were parked and set up right below the lift.
the day started sunny but got ugly...
05-19-2013, 07:01 AM
we all know weather does not equal climate?
the north pole ice still looks like superstar... we got a lucky roll of the dice this time;
last season's summer in march didn't repeat.
05-18-2013, 06:26 PM
cleaned my box, ticket is yours, pm coming...
05-18-2013, 03:50 PM
holding a ticket for kmart sunday that comes courtesy mrs G.
she'd like to see it get someone on the fence to jump on this.
pm to meet up.
btw skiing was spectacular today.

05-16-2013, 04:49 AM
i'll be there...thank you kindly, but i should have some black chocolates on hand as well, so you're gonna get at least one more. just don't ski with 'em in your pockets:eek:
05-16-2013, 12:29 AM
sorry to hear your schedule won't allow a trip south...kmart might make it to one more weekend if the stars align and/or mountain ops is ready to farm some snow if they don't...
05-14-2013, 10:28 AM
^^ liftline does look pretty intact. one regret this season: no spring laps on liftline.
indeed! (your best guess would have been correct). sun and mid-50s on tap for fri-sun.

snow rangers out for some old school i'd better do it soon.

veggie burger in VT yesterday at the...
05-12-2013, 07:33 PM
sun returned to kmart early today...then went away while the hill was socked in for a couple of hours...but i had predicted the sun would come back for the final 2 hours of the sesh.
and it did.
05-11-2013, 03:24 PM
^^ cool will be on praxis BC/dukes. blue or brown pants...
05-11-2013, 10:43 AM
yesterday turned out to be a sleeper day for sure.
better than forecast : no showers and plentiful periods of blue sky and strong sun.
snow was super soft by noon...got a couple of laps in with...
05-11-2013, 01:09 AM
K skied great today.

hard to imagine? really? the path we're on will of course mean the ruin of all of the last wild places on the planet.
close your eyes and imagine the tar sands of canada, the mountain(top) removal...
05-07-2013, 12:30 PM
^^nothing wrong with that! those bumps are big
and not so soft in the am.
for those still riding the lifts, a price drop
and meaningful work for your old lift tickets:
