    Got crowded for an hour. Banged out a bunch of laps walking up to Glacier Road, Patrol cleared to the top of the T-Bars 1030ish(not like WB Operations is ever going to open the T-Bars, that might be a couple minimum wage Aussies they'd have to pay)
    Lots of passive groups of twos and threes which made lift lines irrelevant. Boomer/Gun Barrels/VDs all abound with faceshots.


    I'd save your gas money. It really wasn't that good up there today.
    Terrible grooming. Couldnt see anything

    Whistler sucks, it's always such a white out. Also I got stuck a whole bunch of times.

    Prob going to make the drive from Vancouver tomorrow if the wife is game for our first day out this season...
    Don't be a weenie; just go skiing. I skied Ego Bowl over and over today and it was awesome. The Green chair lineup was out of the corral but I'm sure Garbanzo was short and sweet.
    If you have a problem & think that someone else is going to solve it for you then you have two problems.

    Yeah, yeah....probably going. This will be the wife's first day out since her ACL tear last year so she's understandably nervous....

    Word.

    The green grass, rain and 11 degree temperatures here are kind of putting a damper on things.

    They dropped the gates on Harmony today and it was the tits.

    1st line down Harvey's was all-time. 60 cents of bottomless tree protected blower.

    Peak on deck for tomorrow.

    Sorry did I say that out loud? It sucks up here.

    I found similar awful conditions in Upper VD's and even worse in Christmas trees, the only reason I did a trio of Peak laps was to help out with some skier compaction.
    Could there be a direct relationship between these conditions and the GSA's recent manifesto?

    Many thanks to Clownshoe and crew for getting things done, and how about the jokers stuck waiting for JC

    VD's was downright awful. So much snow in there you could barely move. Don't even get me started on those big clumps of snow sitting on rocks and whatnot that exploded when you skied into it. Maybe tomorrow there will be some groomed runs.

    Dude, 18 cement-imeters tonight, good luck with that crap. It's only going to get in your googles and pie hole as soon as you step off the groomer.

    I rest my case. No sun and shit awful grooming. Terrible light. Why aren't we moving to Colorado anyway and practising heart carving?

    to be honest... I'm thinking about moving to Tahoe. It's always bluebird and deep there.

    Glad I left to go to school. Fuck.
    Try numero ocho. Corner or a couch for 3 weeks from december 14th? Will pay for it happily!! Just really need a place to keep my boots warm, and a place to throw my sleeping bag.
