    Whoa. That went bigger than I thought. I saw a lot snow moving around me, but seemed like fairly normal slough. That's definitely not normal. We were very lucky. Thanks for posting the video, Brit.

    I would assume most were coming from the west side, which just closed now. Most probably made it up before the closure. As a late goer, I'm watching the updates and can hopefully get up once it opens.

    This is the truth. Get a '15-'16. Very good (though not direct drive good) ski wake and and really nice wakes for surf and wakeboard. The surf gates are a must, though.
