    PNW / Western Canada does anyone still have good snow that is not suffering this inversion?

    In Nelson now, and the inversion is killing the snow.... need to bail some place good any recs?

    Wondering the same thing; I was thinking of heading up towards Golden / Revy midweek. Anyone up that way that can comment on the conditions?

    Jackson is firm right now. Winds and inversion took its toll. Still good chalk on north faces. BC is slightly safer but pretty wind hammered in spots.

    with the current high pressure, stability woes and temperatures instead of taking a break from the coast to explore other BC mountains I took a break from the coast to come and work in Calgary for the week....

    Record highs all over the west. Skied slush yesterday, never before in Jan. Time to hide and wait for a change in this crappy weather. Or pray to the snow gods.

    Nice spring skiing in Colorado right now.

    You could always come down and shoot some mountain biking- 65 and sunny in Denver most of the week.

    It's a long way away, but Switzerland is in the middle of another big storm cycle...

    It's not really all that far...Gunder I worked at Sportsman Chalet 2005-2007 in Bellingham. You can come and sleep on my small floor if you want to...

    we're going to have to sacrifice a virgin to Ullr -- probably on some high mountain peak.

    anyone know a virgin?

    Lee-- can you give any details? When were you there, where abouts did you ski, and where was good? Do you think the continued inversion and warm temps would have killed it by now?

    Thanks
