    maybe my 4th time. I blame my kids. :D

    it's the area just lookers left of All The Way on the face proper. Where people normally drop in just at the end of ridge to skip most of the traverse track....

    Kirkwood wasn't bad today. I wouldn't say it was good but it definitely wasn't bad. Some nice carveable snow around if you sniffed for it.

    Thanks for doing what you could and for not posting the photo.

    I rode up Mott with my kids for the first time ever yesterday and there was a dude sitting by the creek under the chair sobbing...

    I think the only thing Vail is serious about is raising pass prices every year. I imagine most of their Tahoe investment dollars go to N* with recent improvements like the new parking lot fee...

    Heavenry groomers skied well the past few days. Seemed significantly softer than Kirkwood after the mini rain event. They need more snow though, still kinda thin in places.

    I have to say those...

    I think I was passed by the same idiot on the way down 88. Fool was passing on a double yellow up a blind hill.. so stupid. I got popped by CHP for doing it last year (not on a blind hill though) and...

    Gimpy may need a shot.

    Sadly, owning it probably means a conversation with animal control. What if Whiskey sees a kid "going fast" and it happens again?

    When I got bit I made a mistake and...

    I don't have a dog in this fight (haha) but gimpy, if you're leg is swollen you need to go get the antibiotics. I was bitten several years ago (2 small puncture wounds on my quad) and got cellulitis...

    I think it actually worked out okay that 10 wasn't running, snow not very good over there.. I hiked over to All the Way and it was the only crusty scratchy run I skied all day. Rest of the mountain...

    dude, missed you today!

    They even groomed lookers right of 99 steps I guess for folks hiking from the top of 10? Kinda weird but yeah major thumbs up to Vail as all that stuff is in play for my...

    well, hope it's better than okay since I've decided to blow off the gubmint and go skiing today. FREEDOM!!

    wow KW skied great today. bluebird, no wind, 4-6 inches of fluff. great day to be out with my groms. couldn't get into T-saddle because of the comp tho.

    However, I learned a lesson the hard way....

    I think tomorrow is yet another good day to blow off work, friends, and family and go pig out on pow amiright?

    hah. no, I don't think Vail really gives a shit but maybe with the previous years of bitching it had a small influence who knows.

    I'm going skiing. Anybody's around say high!

    anything left? Thought I might take advantage of the break in the weather to go poke around tomorrow.. Did Eagle open?

    can we have MLK and President's day Mondays like this every year? I can't remember a year in which both of those dates were A+ primo pow days. So good yesterday..

    KW tomorrow. I'll be milkin' whatever's milkable.:ski:

    ^ I would not try to get to Diamond Peak from the bay on Sunday, odds not in your favor IMO. Bear Valley might be doable?

    KW most excellent today. It was Chair 10 day since nothing else really opened. Eagle Bowl was killer. I wish I could be there again tomorrow, backside opening will be tits.

    why don't you come to KW with me on Wednesday instead.

    you can dig me out if/when I happen to faceplant (this does actually scare me a little when skiing solo on big days)

    It was really good at the Wood yesterday. Crowded but not unbearably so. East wind didn't really seem to fuck up the snow that much. Felt great to break out the fat boards and ski some spicier lines....

    Spur will open I"m sure. Backside could be good tomorrow if it doesn't open today which I would guess it won't..

    Monday is looking good.

    happens to the best of us. I've learned my lesson though the last few years. When in doubt go around. Worst case you are set back an hour or so. Hopefully they get it open by the afternoon.

    me too. Just too much snow on the road, every car around me got stuck just past Silver lake at about 5pm and then it was a 5 hour wait to replow and free everyone. Started moving 10pm.. got home 2am...

    ^^ wow that sucks. I'm happy I arrived early.

    Snow was cold and light and spongy. Really smooth out in the Palisades where I spent my afternoon, best 12/2 in recent memory. The Wall needs another...

    how bad is it? I have plans in South lake this weekend but thinking of canceling. Just hard to know how bad it is from down here in the bay area but what I've heard so far doesn't sound too good.

    yes, snowed off and on most of the day and snowed maybe an inch after lifts shut at 4pm. Vista, Fawn Ridge, and West shore area are all still pretty fresh and should be good tomorrow.
