    Hell if I know... I certainly felt my age walking uphill this past weekend. Or maybe that was my beer gut

    Three videos from out last run on Monday. Skiers are non mags Ty and Colin, newly reformed telewankers, not dentists but veterinarians. I'm in the first vid at the bottom of the bowl standing by the large snow covered boulder and in the second just skiing into the sun.

    Not sure yout vids worked. Course I wouldn't know how to post any media here either. Todd and I did two runs on chair one and split a beer in the Hampton lodge. I had most of it. Okay all of it.

    Any Crystal Ball gurus out there got an Idea when the snow's coming back? This Spring-ish-ness isn't so cool....

    "The GFS, ECMWF, and Canadian models are now all in agreement on the
    large scale pattern through next Wednesday. A rex block forms over
    the NE Pacific along 140W with a dry upper level ridge over the Gulf
    of AK and a deep moist upper level low parked W of the N CA coast
    and directly S of the upper level ridge. Some of the lows moisture
    could sneak inland on Tuesday in the confluent westerly flow aloft
    immediately downstream of the rex block. By Wednesday the rex block
    begins breaking down as the upper level low from the southern half
    edges toward the Pacific Northwest and begins to dominate. With
    moisture from the low spreading inland Wednesday and Thursday look
    pretty wet."

    Fingers, toes, legs, eyes all crossed that this Rex Block gets knocked the hell out next week. The earlier the better. Punch it Chewy!

    Repeat of Monday at Mission, 3 laps in Bowl 4 to Outback, mostly untracked, boot top faceted powder. I love midweek skiing during high pressure after a dump.

    In defense of shit conditions, I would venture to guess the ski areas aren't skiing quite as well as the backcountry is.


    Edit: with the exception of mission Ridge, which as we all know is skiing quite well with fantastic coverage.

    I know you don't believe it, but it's true. Look at the videos I posted. I skied in those conditions all day yesterday and I'm leaving soon to do it again. I think we just lucked out after the warm storm followed by a couple 3" nights and then a foot on Sunday.

    I do believe it. Even 3 inches at Mission makes a good pow day. Just poking fun brotha. Spent a season there in 2000 and even in a 150" year I skied smooth soft snow nearly every day with no competition.

    High 2 resort was fun last night. Skied as many laps possible on grippy firm groomers and bumps. Damp skis with sharp edges helpful.

    Z-bo, you should pay us Easterners a visit sometime.

    Another day farming facets at Mission. Mostly untracked 2000' runs in boot top facets on the ski area boundary. All. By. Myself.

    From White's conditions page this morning.



    "I've skied all the areas on the Cascade Crest and when it comes to grooming, White Pass is the best, no question about it. In fact, the others should send their crews to White Pass to take lessons,"

    I guess that there's a bright point to this current dry spell. Sweet groomers this weekend!

    Got out for a two-thirds day in the Dweebus vicinity with Stealth Radness and foreal. Beautiful calm day. Cold pow in the shade, crusts in the sun, slow dad legs managed 5k. Thanks, gents.

    Nice Norseman...Now suffer thy rex block patiently, that's the only chance we have to actually get some snow at Bridger. It sounds like Bridger is a lot more like Mission Ridge than Alpental, haha.
