I went up today expecting mediocre and received. Started with a skin up White River with the dogs to wear them out. didn't ski anything being solo, just exercise and practice with the dogs. As I pulled in the White River lot I realized I forgot my jacket - stoner moment without the weed - just stupid. Double Mountain hoody with layers sufficed the balmy conditions.
Got to Meadows around 11. That new lift is placed perfectly! that will remove so much bullshit although I usually park at HRM with pups in tow. Regardless, well done MHM.
Shade held wind blown sugar, sun baked some cream cheese, sun then shade made typical death cookies. all in all, great first day of the year.
Left the new sticks at home, felt good to let the rock skis ski rocks and various other non-snow entities with minimal regard.
here's to it!

^^^Joined Patatero on tour up White River. Variable is right.
Patatero baking in view of Jefferson:
Jefferson looks shiny:
Today would have been a beautiful day to summit:
I thought this was going to be nice soft corn. It was not:
See Patatero's tracks- he found some softer snow:
Still a nice base up there, most of the rocks covered, just need snow. Doesn't look like its going to happen anytime soon...

Unacceptable. Was planning on getting some b-day turns in tomorrow at Meadows, but part of me wants to just stay home and do chores so I'm primed when the goods finally show up.

No lines,no gapers,no wind to chill.

The pattern is going to change next week- all of the models are in agreement at this point. Too soon to say what this means in terms of precip, but at least it means this giant high pressure upper ridge is going to break down.
It should start snowing right about the time I have to go to the EC for a week and a half

Get off your fuckin' high horse and go pound snow. You and I both know that your SuperBro's couldn't hold a torch to my 200 Volkl P30 Race Carvers or my 168 Volkl Gotama's!

But man, you were absolutely ripping on those 168 goats. Such a stable platform for a 200# ex-racer. Bravo.

Snow for fuck sakes. Sitting here pricing fucking carving skis."All men are frauds. The only difference between them is that some admit it. I myself deny it."

I hear ya. Its been flurrying for the past couple hours here in the hood if thats any consolation.

Same here. Somebody gave me a pair of old Beta Race 9.28s the other day, and they killed it up there. Not what I thought I'd be thinking about skiing at this point, after that opening weekend.
