    Purg was an absolute goat-fuck this morning. I showed up a wee bit late, right around when the lifts started loading, and traffic was backed up onto Hwy 550. Upper lot already closed and a hudge throng of peeps waiting for the shuttle at the lower lots. I guess that the $30 day-lift tickets had something to do with that. Only Chair 1 (one) was running. Fuck that shit!

    I had 18" and shoveled 3x this end of week. Super glad I didn't take my snows off, even though my summers are dug out. What? I want to plant shit. Dammit.

    Young man, the Winter of 74-75 was the shit. The 90s is modern times.

    Hot pow (3") this skied well at the Basin this morning. Snow in the afternoon up high, and wet snow at the base.

    All in all a good day.

    So my kid gets out of school tomorrow...when she goes back in August and they ask what did you do on your summer vacation, she could actually say, “went skiing in Colorado”, that would be a trip.

    they could definitely do that, snowing in Breckenridge now on may 29; looks more like winter than weeks away from the summer solstice.

    The best season is the one where you had the most fun...but yeah...it has been the coolest snowiest spring in I can't remember how long. There are lines around here that I have never seen filled in. Excavators (and therefore framers) are waiting for it to dry out to get back to work. I think I've worn a t-shirt for about 15 mins. in the last month and a half. WP does not have even one barespot visible from town. They are still saying they are opening for biking on 6/15. Runoff usually peaks in the 2nd week in June and he hasn't even started. It all looks to change this weekend. Get it while you can.

    Stability was a lot better, that’s for sure. Plus I was eleven years younger, which is getting kind of big now.
    This year was easily top five, of the 38 that I’ve had a pass.

    Rode up with Dinkus Sunday. Skico told him to not go crazy, but they’ll spin 3 till the 4th, if he can maintain a run.

    dude, it has been so nice back there, and I’m still loving the TH slide stuff (dead dog, rat tail, Edwards coulies)

    I feel we are getting closer to being able to drive to the bridge, but there’s a lot of slide (tree) debris that’s in the way...

    I’d really like to go up there with a chainsaw and clean it up a bit... hmmm

    I need to send those three this year still! Done emporer 2x and tuning forks once. Hard to do anything else when it’s spring pow... shelted N facing has been holding the goods!! My overly optimistic link up idea is up emporer, down dead dog, up grays, down west face, back up Torrey’s and down emporer to car.

    There is still one big slide (kelso) covering the road, about a mile from summer TH. I took my VW golf up to the junction of grizzly gultch and grays/Torrey TH. No problem. An SUV could have made it almost to the slide.

    Percentages...do you understand them? We are about a month behind on run off at high elevation snow study plots. Here is an example: https://wcc.sc.egov.usda.gov/reportG...ToScreen=false

    I suck at the internet, you get a link.
