    I kept an eye out for you guys but, with the fog, not sure I could have picked you out in the crowd. The top was as thick as I've seen it but, once into some runs, the snow was getting good. Headwall/Near Stiles was good and Stiles itself was awesome with the new over the groomed. Four or Five runs there. I never made it to the back in the morning due to the crowd and conditions but the front kept me entertained. This afternoon, thought I would try Misfortune. It started off well for the first turn then I hit the ice where it had slid. Made one icy turn....whoa....made a turn on some fluff and thought I was in the clear then hit ice again and spun out, sliding down on my back, mostly to where the slope shallowed a bit and I could stop. Had I gone skier's right where my buddy went, I would have been fine as that was untracked soft. I picked the wrong line and, without good visibility, didn't see the hard spots. Oh well....

    Anyway, hope you had a good one in the storm skiing.

    Three days of unreal conditions at silver. Boot top with tons of over the knees and some balls deep friday. Saturday was a reset with mid shin plus all over then the grand finale today, absolute nukeage all day with wind for total resets every run. Legs are cooked.

    Ouch, glad that didn't end with something worse! That ice layer is sneaky. Last week I unwittingly pointed someone onto it just past B chute and got to watch her slide/scrape the 4" dust off the crust for about 150' before she managed to arrest in a slightly deeper spot--which I think she brought with her. Right above about 5 spectators, two of them lying in the snow and watching her approach like it was a ride at Disneyland.

    Foggy basin delivered the blinders today for sure. I love skiing by Braille, but that was some vertigo-inducing soup.

    Funny, I felt like the fog wasn't as bad as Friday or a couple weekends earlier this season.

    Yeah, I noticed you said Friday was busy, too. We must be hitting opposite times or places lately. Pretty sure the fog is an easy explanation--my wife wanted to avoid the racers so we never got to Stella today. Lakeview left a lot to the imagination.

    It's all about timing, I guess. Friday was good based on where you were at any particular time. I fared better then than today. Almost fell over on upper Ridge today. I had vertigo a few different times.

    Yeah dog! What a day considering the ride up the ‘dola looking at each other going , wtf!
    Conditions looked suspicious for sure. Once on mountain with some surveillance, shit was on!
    Skied until I had to just stop for safety reasons as Lhasa’s just wanna haul the damn mail and my recovery legs could not deal, bagged it at 1:45.

    I’ve missed this whole storm cycle . Hoping to get up there tomorrow. Were they running chair 4 today? Seems like it’s been hit or miss lately.

    This week will be more of the same especially as cooler temps roll in and stay; so you should do well!

    Yup 4 was spinning!

    Foggy basin pushed the ceiling up for a minute or six between the hail and graupel. Halfway to a reset maybe? Ice under B- feels covered, at least.

    Anyone going back country this weekend, be very careful. Yesterday's forecast was for High with the PWL very much still in play and new layers building with other failure lines. Off the back of the triple yesterday, there was shear failure and propagation on CT3 at 32 degree slope. This was heading into Larch Park (if you're familiar with the area, it's mostly shallow and an area we ski when things are sketchy...) so the testers tip-toed their way out and skied a couple shallower lines. It's pretty spooky out there and judging by weather forecast, only getting worse through the weekend.

    Were you up there yesterday Goldmember? I thought I spotted some black skis on the Face but I'm awful at remembering clothes colors.
