    TBS, check, looks like your go pro is on.
    QFT - i'd gladly take the extra hour. it's pretty straight forward on non AC days to pull that off. on a control morning would/does/has made it difficult to pull off by 8am and as everyone knows even by 9am sometimes depending on what's being dealt with. if it is something you guys really feel passionate about please write meadows a email and ask for it. surprisingly they actually do read all those emails and comments and take them seriously.

    Adding my "that sucks" to the party.
    I'm told meniscus repairs heal quickly. Lots of good info in gimp central
    Good luck with it

    Will do...

    In other news, MSP flick at the Volcanic Theatre Pub tonight at 7...not going myself but pretty decent film this year. Not as good as Numinous but better than Rogue Elements IMO.

    snow on the cone was good and light but it's borderline too thin to ride without hitting rocks. bring your rock boards or stay down by red chair. the laps off red chair were so light and blower even for only 8"

    I'm headed up to tline to scope things out and hit up the breakfast buffet. Say hi if you see me.

    Also planning to head up tomorrow, but no buffet.

    Wish I had seen this when I went up this morning. Took a few mild shots this morning. But it was starting to fill in nicely. Only did one lap on the Cone, and called it. Other projects that needed attention. But it was a nice medium density 8" of powder. Was really dumping the whole time. Even some light flurries down in Bend during the morning and into the afternoon.

    How was it?

    The buffet was stupendous.

    I'm thinking that the bluebird day tomorrow will far exceed the low-vis lap I had today. Wind affected light pow, maybe 8-10"... Took a rock shot, nothing too bad. Hopefully There is MOAR coverage higher up. No pics cause I couldn't even see my own tracks in the whiteout today.

    likewise! I'm skipping the meadows pass this year and going exclusively human-powered. Which usually means more time at tline.

    Pucci was a blast yesterday afternoon. My first day on the lower mountain this fall and it felt good. Woods are kinda like a puzzle but there were some big fluffy spots in there so worth it. Skied across the lower lot to my car. Also bought the new Bootsy Collins album this weekend and it exceeded my expectations.
