    I got a very late start, but I went up and did a very short hike (half way up lower Paradise), to see what was what. I got some quality powder turns. Day one in the books.

    It was about the langolier assigned to Trump's demise, then it took an interesting turn, to where it was all about me, but I doubt Jack will be so easily sidetracked.

    Yeah, you kinda don't want Snowbowl to ruin their reputation for glacial progress. However it is sort of exciting.

    I'm always seeing all these pics of huge browns, but though I know they are in the rivers, I must not be doing anything that any brown trout, of any size, is interested in.
