    That was my plan too Gimpy but so far not only clouds but snow too. Saw you trying to brave your way across 50 to safeway this afternoon. If it doesn't happen tonight it will tomorrow.

    I too am waiting for the clouds to blow out. Mostly gone over Reno but still present over Slide Mountain. Forecast says clearing, but I ain't gonna stay up too late for this.

    Full moon is lighting up the hills around me right now, but looks more like a sucker hole that may not last

    Hitting up Rose BC early in the morning for a break from the family festivities if anyone is interested. 6 to 630am to either incline peak or areas around tamarack. Just doing a couple laps.
    I love my family. Kids are the best.

    Radar has gone completely clear think it's only a matter of time before the skies do too.

    Looks less promising on this side of the region. Tomorrow night looks like a better bet. I'm pulling the plug and having an extra beer

    Going to try to get into the backcountry this next week, if anyone needs a partner PM me because i need one too. Im a skinning newb (been bootpacking the past few years in JH), but im in shape, ski hard and can ski anything (steeps, trees, chutes)
    If you're a BC newb be careful out there, it's no joke right now. I wouldn't go chasing any steeps.

    Big natural at mammoth mountain on the night of the 23rd:

    http://www.esavalanche.org/content/n...edium=facebook

    Naturaly trigger avalanche during the storm / heavy winds likely during the night of Dec 23rd.  Hard wind slab, 2.5-6' crown that wrapped around most of bowl.  Released just below ridge top at convexity.  Broke several small trees in run-out zone.  Hard slab, pencil hardness, ran on pencil hardness layer with no obvious weak layer in between.  Did NOT run to ground

    I've been wondering if anyone has ever been buried by hanging fire while posing next to a crown?

    I'm sure it's happened. Usually they go out there with a rope to be safe. It's not something I would volunteer for.

    just an incredible season so far - slow build - constant cold - now a double whammy storm that gives us deep coverage and a coating of pow just for good measure. Tho I wouldn't go so far as to say "it was worth the wait", it is interesting how the long dry spell sharpens your senses and tunes you to be ready for and take advantage of and appreciate the snow when it finally comes in a glorious onslaught of winter.

    been tooling around inbounds at Heavenly past few days, til this morning headed up 89 past Camp Rich to ski a South TAhoe cLLAssiC for the first time in 3 seasons, which is skiing great and very approachable.

    odd encounters today included a large porcupine and a drone.

    The first heavy storm a couple days ago was tricky: wind-protected places were creamy and fun, wind-hammered places were chalky and ultra-smooth ("groomed by nature")...it's the exposures where it switched back and forth that got you in trouble.

    Christmas Eve, on the other hand, was the best run I've had in several years, and Christmas Day was amazing too. I've almost forgotten how much fun skiing is. Welcome back, winter. I've missed you.

    yesterday was another great day. got a late start since hutchski left her studfinder back at her place. took the dogs up to the local hill for a run. this tree equals flagpole


    there were huge banners on freel and trimmer as we started, but the winds had died completely by the time we reached the saddle. the ski down was awesome as you'd expect for tahoe this year. stoke was exceptionally assholish though. nacho was an angel


    i managed to break free for a few turns here


    hutchski outpaces stoke and is stoked


    then it was off to a busy night at work. at midnight we left for kirkwood with a few beers and thermos of schnapps and hot cocoa. we were worried about the cold temps especially driving through hope valley where it was already -8. by the time we reached the upper lot at the wood it was up to 12 dergrees and no wind whatsoever.
    the crux of the skin up


    time for schnapps and selfies


    the ski down was 'interesting', and shooting action shots with a flash at night is above our current pay grade


    hutchski enjoys a nice crust


    and then some steepish ice



    couple of other things.
    1. climbing up flagpole i looked across at freel and noticed a cloud just above fountainplace. it was totally out of place and dissipated very quickly. the only thing we figured it could be was the powder cloud from an avalanche

    b) on the way back from the wood at 4am the temperature in the hope valley had risen to +3. weird
