- One foot on east facing slopes
- One inch on west and south facing slopes, interspersed with knarly ice - except for Roach which was good
Two hours of fresh lines in the Bowls and 3D/ORing/Rock Garden with plenty of turns deep enough to make my wee-wee tingle. Saw a small loose slide in 4 bowl.
They opened Heather from Moon Bowl down at about 10:15 - lots of deep goodness down there where the winds made some great deposits. I tried traversing up from Moon but just ran into ice and sastrugi. Left at noon when everything was shralped, temps went above freezing and my legs gave out.
Cascade did not open. May be some goods for tomorrow depending on tonight's temps and if they open the upper canyon
Oh yea, it was bluebird until noon too. Not bad for end of AprilCheck Out Ullr's Mobile Avalanche Safety Tools for iOS and Android

It was very nice yesterday morning kicking around in the slush on Cascade. By noon it was velcro snow, however.Sent from my Timex Sinclair using TGR Forums

good old meadows. can't even announce a closing date (originally may 20, now this weekend) without fucking things up.
cool they take the time to answer 50+ comments saying the exact same thing."We sit together, the mountain and I, until only the mountain remains." -Li Po

Agreed ... that's a bunch of whining. It's getting warm up there and May 6th is plenty late, despite a late snow or two.Sent from my Timex Sinclair using TGR Forums

I am not sure there is "management" at skibowl. The way that place is run is a joke. I think I got my night pass scanned 3 times total this year. Cant beat the night terrain and proximity to Portland for weekday trips though. The sad thing is that it wouldnt take that much to drastically improve the experience.

I'm still trying to figure out how it's safer to take off my slim pack to ride the lift? Evidently having me fumble with both my pack and my poles, as well as buckles dangling everywhere to get caught up is preferable to me wearing it."All men are frauds. The only difference between them is that some admit it. I myself deny it."

You actually had somebody ask you to take your pack off?
I've noticed at meadows and skibowl both, all you'd have to do is skin up past the lower lifts, and then you could ride for free all day. Never got scanned once all season on the upper bowl, cascade, star, etc.

yeah, i agree that people are whining. but meadows could have avoided it, as they acknowledge in one of the responses. i wasn't comparing mhm to anybody else.
so i guess we get the gates next year instead of liftie scanners."We sit together, the mountain and I, until only the mountain remains." -Li Po

I like the gates idea. Don't have to worry about keeping the pass handy, and the "track your turns" thing on their website might actually become semi-accurate. Think of the pissing contests we can have!

What lifts are they putting the gates at? Just the base area lifts or all of them?

If they work well, count me in as already happy about the RFID gates. Sweet.Sent from my Timex Sinclair using TGR Forums

Completely understand the decision, last Sunday snow was Velcro by noon, as one other mag posted earlier. Whey anyone would buy a pass based upon skiing into May is beyond me. Hopefully all 50+ are so pissed they don't buy passes next year.

all they had to do was say they'd be open the first weekend in may and based on turnout decide from there. they've done it before. but coming out and saying may 20, even with the caveat, comes off a lot differently. i wasn't suggesting it was a big deal. it's petty and stupid. and then to respond to 50+ emails all saying the same thing added to the stupidity. and it was easily avoidable."We sit together, the mountain and I, until only the mountain remains." -Li Po
