    I'd chalk it up to the [projected/current] bad snow year more than the avy conditions.

    Damn near 40 degrees at the top of Rose Bowl today. While it makes for a comfortable day, damn. I want arctic tundra this time of year up there.

    When we got lowered off, they gave us each a $5 voucher for Winter Park food. They said they couldn’t do anything more since we are Ikon pass holders. We are both extremely frustrated at Winter Park.
    The worst part was that we were so cold, we needed something to warm us up ASAP. They snowmobiled us to Olympia Lift where there is a waffle shop with hot chocolate. I get us 2 overpriced hot chocolates and I hand the gift certificates over. They denied the gift certificates since they are not a Winter Park shop.
    I guess since it went COviral, WP coughed up a couple free tickets.

    That fucking runout on the bottom 2/3 of Pioneer is the worst! Every year I promise myself Iím not going to hover there and for some reason tell myself it will be ok. I always regret it. This is the year Iím not going to go.

    They really need a mid load on that lift.

    Naw - that generally keeps the snowboards off that area.

    Possibly the worst design of a lift Iíve come across. No reason they couldnít have designed a mid load or cut a trail from the Olympia lift area to access it better.

    It's the same as the Summit Express. The Zephyr was a different model, and the same as most of the other quads. The Summit was the original prototype for that model of lift and the Pioneer came later. I don't know what happened the other day, but the issues with the Pioneer are mostly due to wind.

    Hit Mach 2 on Stagecoach and you can usually make to the lift without unbuckling, but Big Valley has certainly bitten me a few times .

    There are some great trees off that lift!

    Glad I could provide a touch of humor in these non snowing times.

    Forget going all the way to Alaska, just go to Mt Baker. Over 60" of snow so far this year. Snow base is now 140" at the base and 155" at the top.

    A basin skied pretty nicely yesterday. Spine first thing was awesome, followed by hitting every rock lower on the face. Worth it. Hopefully we get something out of this system today.

    You didnít hit them all. I found a bunch too.
    Itíd be nice if they could do something with those two icy pitches on upper Loafer. Too much like East coast conditions. The edges on my rock skis are too dull for that shit.

    I'm not sure that if someone hits a rock it precludes anyone else from hitting the same rock. Funny on the rock skis comment as I broke down and did some edge work on my 15 year old boards for exactly that reason.

    How is it possible that with the exception of some rainforest mountain in Washington, Cuchara has basically the best snowpack in the country?

    I think you are misreading the data. They don't have the best snowpack in the country or even the state, it is just the best relative to normal. If their normal is 10", and they have 15", they are at 150%. Whereas a different locale could have a normal of 50", and be at 40", and be at 80%.
