    Excellent day up Poison into Bee Gulch today east of Bear Valley Resort. Cold but still, so t shirt skinning. Stayed to the southerly slopes with wonderful mixture of nice wind buff and soft powder. Can't wait til the snow settles out a bit and we can get into Underwood.

    If I can at all swing Monday Mike, I'll give you a shout. Leaving town the 26th, so tons of shit to do before that and with all the crazy xmas shit. But I may be able to sneak in a morning session...

    Have fun tomorrow night. Hope to make one of those one of these days...

    Even dogs and cats can get along on a powder day

    Bear had a good shakedown day Thursday.
    It was more like a weekend crowd with the lot and lines full.
    People were smiling despite a few lift shutdowns.

    I found Powdrhound on the lift and got to spin a few laps with him.




    for a Kirkwood slut Powdrhound knew his way around the mountain pretty well



    It wasn't all like this midmorning run, a short skate/hike from the lift,
    but I got to put down three overlapping lines in one of my favorite spots.

    Yes, a Fine day at Bear.
    Could it really be 45 years since my first ski day there?
    The rocks and trees are still in the same positions.
    My favorite lines were sweet.

    Thank you, Bear Valley, for such a successful promotion.


    Let it Snow!

    Same here. Central west slope has a lot of unsung greatness. Especially considering it is in California.

    I gotta be honest, I dont' have a clue. I left the area before I ever started touring & don't know what's good. I've been told Red Mtn and Bear Butte are options, but never tried either. I'm throwing myself open to suggestions and meeting new mags.

    Ooooh, I'm going to say doubtful. It takes pretty good coverage. Maybe somebody who was up there could speak to how it looked down there. The website is projecting no Griz tomorrow.

    Red Mountain is a lot flat but good skiing when you get there. Bear Butte is a great short, fun one with only one flat spot. If you're ambitious, Kaiser Peak is the best by a lot.

    Dodge opener was excellent today.

    Hoss - sounds like you are in good hands with meggers.
    I didn't believe in reincarnation when I was your age either.

    I haven't managed to scare up a partner yet and don't particularly fancy getting out in unfamiliar terrain by myself. If you're interested in meeting up and maybe showing me around (or just letting me tag along), that would be awesome. If not I'll just see what I can harvest inbounds at CP on Monday.

    Dodge delivers - 18-24" on top over the last 24 hours - refresh machine in effect - nobody here - we ain't rad, just fun





    Red Mountain was my first ever backcountry ski tour to the top of and off of a mountain

    I'd suggest staying at the resort. I was up today and coverage is pretty grim below 75000 which would mean lots of rocks at any place that'd be worth skiing. But CP was great today!

    I'll be up at CP tomorrow morning. Say hi if you want. Bright orange pants, bright green jacket, white lid: Can't miss me.

    will do. I'll be the girl with the tiara glued on her helmet with a green jacket, I'll probably be with an old man covered in snow (my dad)

If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.
