    How's the coverage at Meadows Matt? Worth a day trip mid week for an aging skidder.

    It depends on the standard. It was easy to avoid sharks, but I think things might deteriorate a bit over the next 48 hours. It was WARM when we left today. Snow was softening nicely up high, but with sneaky icy patches. Not like wind crust ice, but skating rink.

    Based on the cams and telemetry, I don't think there's any reason to ski Meadows if you can ski bachy.

    asshole snowboarders jumping and bombing all around the kid today on packed green and blue runs. i had one dude go above me off piste, go past the entrance to get to the lift, then drop right in front of me trying to go back. landed right on the nose of my board. people flying into the lift lines. nobody giving notice that they're passing close by. holiday weekends were always a bit of a drag, but watching people fly by within two feet of the kid over and over is going to cause a big fucking problem the first time somebody hits him.

    yup. i'm in back taking wider turns behind him. mom's in front. nobody cut between us but there were plenty of people who blasted by within 2-3 feet of my backside and buzzed him. i saw another guy cut between a ski instructor and a 6ish year old who were 3 feet apart. several times i saw people jumping from the edges of the run into the middle at the very bottom of jeff flood, which is a somewhat steep bottleneck and was loaded with kids. honestly, today was the worst i've seen at timberline as far as people being assholes. we usually come during the week.

    if he knows the route maybe try both of you guys behind him,
    you being right on his tails, her being one extra blocker.
    busy days are tough so we go early and once real busy, adios.

    Good advice! People dont seem to be as polite as they used to be: Dont know why that is.

    Fun skiing with the Puma clan this AM
    Sadly the crowds were beyond insane with racer kids and tourons.
    Outback was thin and littered with rocks and gapers at all the choke points. People stood in line for an hour to ride the White Ribbon of Beverly Hills.
    And yes, I admit to being spoiled

    good idea. he knows the routes pretty well now. we normally avoid these days. i have probably been a little overzealous since i missed last winter and forgotten why we normally avoid days like new years eve and mlk weekend.

    saw one guy heading down near the bottom of jeff flood, with the run full of people, hit a tree well jump in the middle of the run at speed and launch himself halfway across the run and barely missed his buddy and then skidded into the trees, barely missing one.

    i had a complicated vibe today. not all of it was pleasant. it was a great day riding -- i got an hour and a half by myself (that i didn't plan on) to get in a groove -- and the boy is getting better every day and has a great attitude. but overall i'd say there were a lot of careless and reckless people around and it probably didn't bother me as much when i was the only one to worry about but now everybody looks like a fucking missile. the guy dropping in almost on top of me was not pleasant and took a while to shake off.

    Online right now trying to figure out what happened but not finding anything. We considered going back to Skibowl to wait it out but I'm glad we decided to go through Hood River. Trip check said it was still closed at like 11:45. Randomly stopped at Ixtapa in HR and it's identical to the one in Silverton. Big plate of melted cheeze. Hopefully will not have to do that route again anytime soon. Oh well. Hoping to get a lucky parking spot for some afternoon and sunset turns today. Time to brew another pot of coffee.

    there was a little blurb on one of the local 11 oclock news last night but they even said that very little information was out. all the odot cameras were working except for the one .5 mile from the closure. i havent seen a mention of it anywhere today. i hate that last shot before rhododendron. so many people trying to speed and jockey for position before it goes to one lane each way.
