    Tonight was both awesome and a little frustrating. Arrived around 6pm with snow falling. Didn't seem to be snowing hard, but ended up being 1" an hour. Soft chop all over the mountain with a few...

    Was a fun night up under the lights. Crazy to see how filled in it is after the cycle last week. Will be up again tomorrow (fingers crossed that I90 stays open).

    Even though the SGs have me checking the couches for extra funds while reminding myself that I love my veneer 191s, we can't ignore the 184cm BGs. Those Mango Sunrise Tours look HOT! Plus purple BGs...

    I'm heading up tomorrow night and Friday night (as long as it's open). The storms stacking this week are nuts. Glad I didn't miss everything. Stoked to see everyone getting after it while it was good...

    The Missouri (and Illinois and Ohio) persecution makes their reaction a little more understandable, though in no way excuses it. Mountain Meadows was horrible and a stain on humanity. I'm glad the...

    I think he's saying to trade this Denny Creek parcel for an unprotected parcel close to existing resorts that could be built out. I don't think building up Denny Creek would ever be feasible.

    I love mine, but understand it's not for everyone. Hope these go quick for you. For those scared by the length, these ski much shorter than stated length.

    All of Seattle ski area have the same issues. We had an interesting thread exploring options last year. Bottom line is there's not a lot of options due to Wilderness designations and elevations.

    Yeah, my Billy Goats or QLabs would have been a better choice than my MFree 108s. Still, in the wise words of Slackey, skiing is fun.

    Who do we need to talk to about night skiing ending during the second week of March? Ending it that early is brutal.

    Today was awesome. Lesson crowds were in effect and visibility could be challenging, but snow quality was great and it kept up most of the day. Love the fresh snow on cord runs.
