    Oddly enough, there were pretty few people there for a weekend. Like, no lines.

    Nice! Anybody hiking the powerline on the other side of I-90? Kinda low angle, but definitely worth doing (especially when Lookout proper is crawling with kids).

    How were the conditions sat. compared to Friday. We had nice clean untouched lines in the trees all day on Friday. I really couldn't have been much happier. Exceeded my expectations and was a great way to open the season. I mean the terrain left a bit to be desired but conditions were ON for mid-Nov. around here.

    well, let's see. How do I put this into words...
    Saturday was another foot of dry powder from 2pm the previous day (after most people had left). The backside was opened with knee deep snow in the trees. We skied in and out of the woods most of our day, without hitting anything too big. You had to keep an eye open, but it was awesome.
    It continued to snow throughout the day, only getting colder and drier.
    It may have been the best opening weekend ever.

    oh, and Saturday is opening at the Bowl, not Friday?

    Correct, they used to open on Friday, but that didn't punish the weekday pass holders for not paying for a full pass. Make them wait a week, the cheapskates!

    Sweet vid mtskier.

    I suppose I ought to get unlazy, and get some turns in somewhere before The Bowl opens, but I likely won't. I'll be there at the front of the line on Saturday though.

    Great vid, T. After seeing stuff like that, I might need to rally to Missoula ...

    In other news, please send some snow this way. We need it.

    Is there any truth to this or pure rumor? Come from somebody reasonably in "the know".

    I suggest all the chicken little types start wringing their hands, and stay home on Saturday.

    It's possible they don't have the gearbox reinstalled yet. Back in mid October, when I last spoke with the one who would know, he was a bit anxious to get it back, in time to reinstall it before the snow made working a hassle. It was being rebuilt in Wisconsin I think, to replace worn parts (the lift was used when they bought it almost thirty years ago). He said they had a backup one they'd be able to use if there was a problem getting it back on time, and that it would take about a week to reinstall it. Again, that was over a month ago.

    I'm not worried.

    hey all
    happy winter!
    conditions report so far: pretty deep instability at the ground (3.5 feet or so) up @ gash point on sautrday; failing first about a foot down at ~15, and then a few more to the full rip. hope it settles out before too long. be careful. that being said: FUN!
    also, a little less snow in the jocko (~3ft), but conditions were a bit more stable. still went at facets near the ground, and fairly cleanly, but it took quite a bit of pounding to get it to go (30+).
    anyone else have any reports?

    I am still in love.

    oh great, it's warming up for opening weekend everywhere.
    Disco looks like it will have something akin to WROD tomorrow.


    oh wait, weather report actually doesn't look to bad for Snowbowl for the next few days. And when I say not so bad, I mean awesome.
