    Totally accurate. First hour at Alpine was heavy but fun, then suddenly it got really wet and unfun. Noted that Squaw closed east fact of KT and Oly Lady due to avi risk.

    The slide was not in Subway Cirque and I'm not sure MTT's photo is correct. The slide was in Crag Chute (on the patrol map), which is also called Townsends by patrol. Crag Chute has more of a terrain...

    At this point, i hope the whole storm dies for Sunday so we can just continue this quasi-corn cycle. These 3 inch storms don't do shit otherwise.

    Yeah, that part was haunting. We were riding up Scott right as the event happened. Didn't see it but sure heard it.

    We've been wondering the same as the exit ramp at mid-station is pretty shallow. I can't convince anyone to be be the guinea pig...

    Friday and Saturday were not so bad at Alpine...but today was a damn shitshow with everyone finally showing up with just Weasel On Speed and Kangaroo running. I expect things will be bad through the...

    It's December 4th. I can patiently wait. Just about 8 days ago we were looking at bare dirt and rock with snow only where man put it. It's going to take them some time to ramp up.

    It's the Northwest opening that caused that price bump. If they were charging that price today, it meant that they were likely planning a soft opening today. Don't know if that happened.

    The snow that was made allowing Kangaroo was all made during that late October cold snap, which is the same time period that Rose made snow on the Wiz. Boreal and Sugar couldn't blow during that time...

    Well what Alterra did was figure out what everybody else knew all along. It's far easier to get Kangaroo open at Alpine than any other terrain at Squaw, except for Extrabitchen or First Ventures. It...

    The main Kangaroo run is probably closer to 4 or 5 cats wide Dooks. Today the middle 3 were machine tilled just before opening and that was probably a mistake. Friday was much better without the...

    To a certain extent, they are also bombing the chutes to protect the access road and possibly the highway. A few years back, I know Nightmare slid a quarter mile past the access road and buried the...

    You pretty much have to supply your own food, beverages and post ski music these days at Alpine...and know Summit well enough to follow the sun for a full ski day. Word on the street is that the poor...

    Because there is a turn at the mid-station, thats how it operates. The cable cannot operate around the turn, so it is two separate systems. Its the same way the proposed ganjola would work...or just...

    Sleeper day at Alpine too with more than an inch or two of new snow, which would have made Light Ranger happy. Still guessing there was 17% more snow at Squaw. You made a great choice TahoeJ.

    All lifts (sans ABC) eventually opened at Alpine today...Scott, Sherwood and Lakeview around 1130 and Summit around 1. Even Roundhouse did not open until 940. The snow was definitely pretty slabby. I...

    Like I said, the shop blamed me, blamed the ski manufacturer, and the democrats for the poor performance. Anybody but them. Respected local shop, but it's unlikely I will ever deal with them again.
