    Okay, apparently Sunday was good everywhere. Here is my Alpental edit to add in the mix:



    Looking forward to the storm cycle coming through!

    Funny, after many years of booting I now laugh inside when I put on my skins and pass the people booting. To each their own I suppose.

    ^^ Nice Video AlpenDude. It's always rad to see good footy from familiar places. Of course just as the weather gets good I start to get busy with work. c'est la vie... I'll be there on Thursday.

    Morning at alpy was, well reasonably decent. Crust was pretty brutal on steeper aspects, and damn near unrideable down low. OTOH, the lower angle stuff up top was pure fluffy delight with face shots a plenty. Shot six proper was surprisingly good. Heard upper BC was great, but lower was real difficult. I passed on that. We need another 8-10 before it clears up to cover the crust.

    I do love living 20 minutes away, now it's on to my work day.

    Xtal did not disappoint. 12" reported by resort was about right. South to SE facing slopes had a bit of wind scour, otherwise anything else was simply sweet. Even down lower below REX was not bad. Creamy, powdery goodness. Snowing heavy all morning long. Precip falling as snow all the way down to bottom of Crystal Blvd and then some.

    yeah, i was talking with a skinner (skier wearing a lot of red iirc) up on top who was pissed the skin track was being packed out. i re-posted the boot pack along side it. i'm sure it didn't stop you from having a blast anyways. fortunately for us, all the people out for the lbs have packed up, gone home, and left us to our own devices on dope days such as today. 7th chair up 5 when it opened. has epic runs before heading to the arm for two memorable lines down the football fields. light, fluffy snow = sicknass. everything's filled in and it's been fun charging bigger and bigger lines. wish i had a camera of some sort.

    As an associate of key-z, I can attest to the ridiculous wonderfulness that today had to offer. Not the best conditions I've seen all year, but I was at my own peak performance. Here's to the snow comin' back!

    For fucks sake I was happy with the 5 at Stevens today. At least that La Nina chick got back on the ball...Ullr must have laid down the law.

    Today was the tits at crystal, but no southback. Saw some patrollers head out there around 3, presumably to get a head start on control for tomorrow. It'll be a great day out there if the gate drops! And yes, plenty of nooks and crannies to still play around in. Face shots were received in every run from 9:30 to 3:30

    baker is meh. as evidenced above, its unbearably crowded and the backcountry gets tracked out quickly. it's also super flat. pretty small, too. oh, and the snow is really heavy here and there are a shit-ton of passionate tele skiers. as you know, tele sucks. go to bozeman. please.

    Internet sarcasm doesn't really work for me. I'm confused.
    I'm coming from CO, I guess you could call me one of those "passionate tele skiers"
    I've heard bellingham has some pretty awesome BC near by and The cascades look like an amazing place. is that so? does it really rain as much as it seems like it does? thanks

    you get use to the rain.. You just have to keep your gortex quiver well stocked and in good repair and remind yourself that the rain makes it beautiful...

    and people are good here in the PNW...

    I got out in it this afternoon. Only a few lifts were running but I found plenty of untracked. Later this week is going to be stupid-good with several more inches coming and they open the west face of the mountain.

    it happens... but we have some pretty accessible glaciers that can be skied all year long....

    lots of rain=lots of precipitation=lots of snow, or lots of rain.. it depends on the year.. of course you could always go to Bozeman

    I know people from colorado in school here who hate it and some who have left. They can not stand the clouds, rain, and raining at the resort.

    If you don't like rain in the winter, this is NOT the place to be.

    PS - all the tele skiers here only drop their heels to get in photo shoots.
