    There was definitely 19" if not more at the basin. Bottomless, hudge wind drifts in spots like massive waves. So fun.

    It was damn good today. Some weird hooky wind affected snow on open W-faces but protected stuff in the trees was $$$$. In fact just about everything I have skied in the past 4 days has been extremely good.

    This storm was great for coverage, we are pretty much in mid-season form now.

    Can confirm. Vail is deeeeep. Taking a quick break for the fam but holy wind blown fun. Caught China bowl near opening because I had untracked faceshots the whole way down. Wish I could stay up and ski tomorrow too because this is amazing.

    What limited terrain Loveland had today skied awesome- a legit 24", more in some spots. Hopefully this will help them open a bunch more, they certainly need to.

    With the wind and snow, it was damn near impossible to take pictures... but I managed to get a couple decent ones.

    Was it still dumping at AB? Is everything off Pali skied off completely?

    I don't know about AB, but it was absolutely nuking at Loveland when I left around noon. With the wind and the add'l snow, tomorrow is still going to be very good.

    Snow was super fun, for sure. Too bad I couldn't see anything, but hey...I'll take it!

    It was still puking when I left around noon at the LUV.
    You should have been here yesterday!

    Abasin delivered. Trees off Pali were double deep and lift lines were manageable. It's still nuking and a total white out past mid mountain. Loveland pass is not in very good shape will likely be closed through tomorrow when then sun comes out I would guess. If the snow keeps up it will be fun tomorrow, but not as untracked as the early birds saw this AM.

    Unfortunately this is the only other one I got today due to the conditions... this was the shot immediately before the one above.

    Awesome...still better than 99.5% of any of my pics.
    Hopefully Luv will get some significant amount of terrain open now.

    LL might be able to open some lower terrain, but I'm guessing that most of the high terrain remains closed for a while. Think windslabs. Most of that stuff will slide when they bomb the shit out of it in the next few days.

    Breck was DEEP today as well. I was happily surprised to discover that the snow was much lighter than I thought it would be. Rode up 2nd chair and skied between the SuperConnect mid-load, E-Chair and Falcon Chair. Turns down the south side of Peak 10 were waist deep. Lift lines were a little longer than they could have been due to the T-bar, 6 Chair, Imperial and Peak 6 being closed, but I did well with the timing on lift/terrain openings. Favorable aspects in the alpine should be really nice tomorrow.
    I used to hike 2 hours for 10 minutes of turns on 207 gs skis, without needing “skins” or “hike mode.” Tell me again how I’m a gaper.

    Nope.... I'm not sure what was open/closed before today, but it was basically Lift Gully to skier's left. Nothing to the right.

    They opened some more stuff (I think) under Chair 4, but that's the extent that I know of.

    Here's a pretty accurate representation of what it was like most of the morning conditions-wise:

    Looks good out there! Fucking stuck in the office today since I had all last week off visiting in-laws out in the flat lands. Rough seeing the reports and watching it pile up outside. Going up early tomorrow to sample the goods around here. Shocked by how little to no wind we got here. Maybe only 5-6 inches in town but guessing way more than that up high.

    You're welcome. Thats what I get for spending the holidays in the PNW for the first time in years. Hitting the road after Christmas, I guess.

    Copper was very good. Had way too many lift issues that did not seem to be wind-related, but there were many places that were deep and it was not that crowded.

    Still nuking when I left Loveland at 4pm. today was the first real inbounds winter storm day for me. So fun.

    Wow so much fun at the beav this morning. Got one of the first chairs up. Larkspur bowl and favored spots on grouse were $$$$. The 9 inch report seemed about right. Really heavy and wind impacted in some spots. I kept lapping a wind loaded spot in larkspur that was easily waist deep. So fun, and no crowds at all. I love the beav
