    At Mt Rose today. Thickest slab I've ever skied - mostly unbreakable, but when I broke through, it got ugly. For 20"+ of snow, it skied like 2".

    Untracked was tolerable in the early morning: not many people braving the light hail/sleet mix.
    Then it got warmer... and rained and rained and rained. My kids lasted a grand total of 3
    runs between them: I got in a few good runs on Tigger's and Porridge before giving up myself.
    Sigh... Hoping it's colder for the Sunday storm.

    Up top at Squaw was good. Dumping at Sibo until close. It was the best wettest day I can remember.

    Alpine was decent, did 6000 laps on roundhouse. Anything steep was good. Hope alpine bowl chair opens.

    ^^ yeah good wet day...skiing wise. Comfort not so much
    Glad we had our big skis
    10 was good
    Eagle Bowl was great
    So stoked to get smooth untracked "near to" Saddle. On a Saturday!
    Most other peeps heading to end of rope line next to Cirque above Saddle (backside).
    Sentinel was surprisingly crappy
    We will see what today will bring...

    I'd expect the Rose backcountry to be crusty too - kinda depends on what happens with the Sunday - Monday storm.

    I really only tour for pow, so fresh crust isn't that appealing to me...

    Hey Tahoe,
    We're doing a slideshow/book signing next weekend. Sunday the 15th at Tahoe Mountain Sports. Still working out the details on our presentation, but probably talking about the book a little bit and then showing a bunch of pictures.

Pack the truckster and call in sick, amigos! Cup:0:Joe in hand and stoke meter *at 9.6 as we see a second wave of "snain" at 8500', we will open ALL lifts today with 6, 10, 3, 5, 2, 6, and 2 on wind hold as Mtn. ops slows'yr roll with Ma Nature's natural natch.

    Stay thirsty,
    Coop

    "on tour" meaning road trip to Tahoe and thinking of going to Rose

    Anyone with a Gold SquawAlpine pass that has used the 50% Mountain Collective discount before? Do you just show your season pass at the ticket window or is some special process required. Thanks.

    Raining pretty good at the base of alpine. Hoping snow levels drop quickly.

    Duuuumping in the coast. Got be close to a 1/8" in the last 20 minutes alone. At least the northern state is getting some damn water. And veto g those higher peaks are gettin a killer spackle right now. Makes me glad I bought some skis for high alpine spring tours. Better get them mounted up.

    I'm out for mon/tues so I fully expect those snow levels to quickly drop to the valley floor.

    Screw you, Coop. I'm really pouty right now and your sarcasm is NOT helping. This winter has really been horrible and you can't make that even remotely funny ironic joke. maybe if you hadn't been so deceitful over all those years about lift schedules and operations that never really happened you would have less bad karma buildup that is screwing us all right now

    Hasn't the real Coop posted on here before. Like early season telling us not to hike and what not. There is no way this is "the real coop". The real coop doesn't get paid unless he plugs HH, Smith or some other official vail partner for 13 minutes out of a 15 minute snow report video posted to face book.
