    Fun snow up high today, but rain instead of snow on the lower mountain, despite Snowbowl's report that it snowed top to bottom. The bottom half of each run was pretty rough. I left by noon - did it pick up and cool off in the afternoon? It's slowly getting better but we need more coverage.

    Lulz @ everyone.

    Country, somehow western Montana seems to be getting the most snow of anyone right now.

    406, that's hilarious. Those things aren't designed for inbounds either. I said alpine gear, not alpine touring.

    See you fuckers tomorrow.

    I think all this crappy snow has got us all on edge. A little powder will heal our souls, eh?

    It really got much better toward the end of the day. Temps dropped, and snow fell heavily to the bottom of the hill, enough to break the treacherous grip of the sticky rain mank on the lower mountain, which, in the morning, was unpleasant and tricky, even dangerous.

    It's down into the low twenties tonight, so there will be some freeze drying going on, hopefully it'll fluff out, and pick up some more inches of fresh. It's supposed to be very windy overnight, so probably wind buffed.

    Good night.

    apparently my subconscious didn't want to go skiing and I turned my alarm off in my sleep and got out of bed around 12.
    WTF?!

    It was really good today. Did 10 top to bottom bowl runs and a last run on Griz. The windloaded areas felt bottomless and my favorite run filled in nicely. sun was out for most of the day, very nice.

    Sweet dog! Bowl was fun today. Sunny and warm. Soft most of the day, started to set up once the sun left.

    This is amazing and unbelievable: Skier claims Snowbowl denied him season pass after safety complaint

    Read more: http://missoulian.com/news/local/ski...#ixzz1iStdBgIC http://missoulian.com/news/local/ski...9bb2963f4.html

    Dude is a serious and longtime regular and passholder. I think he might even be a maggot...Makes me scared to post shit on their Facebook page.

    Brad and Ronnie's hardcore bullheadedness is simply amazing.

    Kinda ridiculous they would allow this considering the chair that just fell of their chairlift. Doesn't get more brazen than that.

    Yeah, but Jim sure can be an abrasively pushy guy. Most people who know him, can understand how the owners would be steamed at his efforts to force them to do what his will.

    On the other hand, they also denied a pass to M. E., who is a heck of a nice guy, and skied there for decades, for writing letters, or calling the FS to regulate the way that Snowbowl operated (according to his interpretation of the FS ski area regulations), though he certainly went to Ronnie, and, or, Brad with his concerns first. While I tended to agree with him that it is unwise that Snowbowl groomers pushes big clumps of snow down Patrol Chute which become hazards in it, I wasn't willing to try to influence them to change it, let alone find some FS Reg. to form a legal argument.

    So it seems the policy is not to sell passes to people who try to take control of their operating decisions using the FS. I really can't blame them for not wanting to do business with people who are interfering with the operating of their business.

    I would like them to groom the out run a bit more. That being said, it's not the kind of thing that necessitates the FS. And the people who run the place seem to think of the internet like we did back in 1995, or something.

    I find it the most surprising that Snowbowl had a suggestion box and someone read them

    Sylvester wrote comments and placed them in the suggestion box at the ski area.

    well, I really can't blame the management for planning to kill someone who would publicly slander Snowbowl's good name and try to interfere with their prerogative to carry on business as they please.

    Whatever toasty, I'm sure if you operated a ski area you'd love it if customers tried to use the FS strong-arm you when their suggestions weren't implemented.
