    No shortage of snow in the Missions. Might be a bit touchy out there.

    NOAA's forecast discussion is touching on some interesting notes for the rest of this week:

    Best keep the fingers crossed for the frontal boundary timing to be right. Friday might be another sick day...

    I wish I didn't go home for the holidays. Looks like a bowl is getting a really good morning or two out of this.

    I'm sure the Pineapple Express will come in and dump rain to 10,000 feet sometime in January.

    Word. Definitely planning on the p-lot being crowded through the weekend/New Year. Lookout, LT, and the Disco might bleed some of the crowds away if we all get dumped on.

    Yet even on the busiest of days I've found that the bowl is exceptional at spreading the crowds around. Thank God for slow double-chair lifts.

    We've had a number of good days at the Bowl so far this season.

    That said, we're definitely in need of a colder storm cycle to roll through again.

    Today's conditions were like skiing a sandwich. Cold enough near the top for some soft turns, and the bottom section was turning into decent corn snow. But the entire middle half was icy chunks, and you had to be on your guard a bit.

    From Thursday:

    Hopefully this all gives the backcountry a chance to settle up a bit before the next shift.

    I was up yesterday afternoon. Snow was dry. Kinda dust on crust. It's usually too cloudy and far from the ocean to get Cascade Concrete.
    Was gonna go again now, but I can't seem to sleep well anymore.

    I don't remember how to do this and a little bit out of practice on this, but today was a ***/****. First run on the ridge was especially good and filled in, and the crust was almost not felt despite only 15" or so new snow on top of it because of the upside down structure(thanks to the late night warmup yesterday). Lower trees need a little more filling in too, despite a 50" day. Can't complain besides that.

    Finally met a mag on Friday's pow day. Wordbird is a good shredder, and made some fine turns with him before I had to dip out for work.

    The pow turned to mashed potatoes on Sunday. The northerly aspects above 6500' stay nice and fluffy, but anything south facing or below that turned into decent spring skiing by the afternoon. Good day to ski with the lady and take it easy.
