    Yeah, I'm all about cherry picking a pow day this week. I bet Stoney Wall is down too, I'll check with him tonight.

    I made it up to Heavenly today. Nevada side (Stagecoach and North Bowl.) 2-3 ft. of fresh. They even opened Olympic chair for a couple of hours. I know that it isn't that steep there (steep was needed for the snow depth.) However, it did provide access to Western Perimeter (inbounds.) Western Perimeter was amazing. Deep and untracked. The rock piles between the trees were inviting soft pillows of pow. It was fun to float down with the brief moments of slough. I didn't cross any other tracks until close to 2:00.

    I returned home to 2 feet of fresh on a 1 and 1/2 foot base. I might just ski my yard tomorrow.

    nice. Good stuff. What a strange storm it's been - I ran in shorts yesterday and hiked in a tshirt today. I was worried that that meant that things were drying out up there, but it sounds like that's not the case.

    Go git it! you all deserve it. Have fun and be safe!

    All I could utter for hours on the one and only time I've rode KT was "Holy shit this rocks" "Fucking crazy man" over and over and over again. This was on FatThursday late February last year. KT on a sick pow day is better that sex.

    Nice...super stoked you got Tahoe on a sick day...and have stories for the crew at home.

    On another note...I just drove from SF to South Lake in about 3 hours...Yep...3 hours. No traffic with dry roads all the way to Sly Park Road. Rain until Strawberry and then driving on snow at Twin Bridges to Meyers. Over Echo Summit @ 7:00 pm it was dumping...it may be wet, but they are getting snow. Meyers it was a rain/snow mix, mostly rain. At my house in South Lake, not doing anything at all, except a few rain drops.

    I will attempt to hit Kirkwood the next two days, may even buy a Heavenly pass if need be due to whether in the next few days.

    Damn. I have great timing. After 3 days of trying to ski KW, I gave up tomorrow to make a midweek trip instead . . . looks like I may have made the wrong call - but I suppose I'm willing to take one for the team . . .

    Have fun you guys

    My God, I don't even know where to begin. Yesterday was the best day of my life. Except the day before, or maybe the day before that. It still feels like a dream. Once I make sense of it in my head I'll elaborate. KT was the best it's ever been in my 5 seasons at Squaw. Our first run down chute 75 defies description. I think I made 10 turns down the whole thing, crossed maybe one patroller track the entire way. Ab-so-lutey insane.

The snow didn't ski as deep as the 5-6 feet they got, in some places a windpack layer was only 6 inches down, but mostly it was knee deep and sometimes bottomless. It was snowing pretty hard and felt like a ghost town. Eventally I was crossing a few tracks in the trees but I rarely saw anyone else until the bottom of the runs. And then, around 2, the falling snow turned to ... not snow. And the fluffy powder turned to ... something else, heavier and noisier. After a few more runs we finally accepted the harsh reality: we were being rained on, top (of West Bowl) to bottom, and the powder had turned to glop with a light rain crust, so we put our wet asses into the heated seats and drove home, rain over Echo Summit and everywhere in Tahoe. Of course when it was time to head back to the bay later that night it was snowing over Echo Summit again ... Kirkwood probably got mostly or all snow. Tues-Wednesday should be good days.
    thx for the tr Walter..Snow level dropping back down to 3000 ft tonight - tomorrow with this next storm...Wed should be sweet. haven't heard anything today from the east coast guys or Lane, so they must be getting the goods today. lucky bastards

    I did it the otherway for Wednesday. I convinced my boss that he should go skiing on Wednesday.....

    (hop here)

    KW was very very nice today. Very Baker-esque (that's for you hardrider), super smooth and velvety dense stuff. Followed 666 down the Jim's... we probably made 10-15 turns from the top to the cat-track -warp speed now captain!
    It got a bit chunky and hard once it was cut up so we ventured farther afield to stay in the smooth stuff, scoring down the Sisters and Norm's Nose. Vis was hit and miss most of the day with chair 10 going on wind hold (with us on it just below the top...my favorite part of the day) at around 1230? We called "over it" and bailed at 1330.

    It was still puking when we left, so tomorrow should be UltraKickassRadness.

    Edit: Skier666 has the pics.
