    High pressure cell forecasted to stick around for another week. Damn. Maybe this is the usual January drought a month early.

    One last window to get some work done around the house before winter sets in. Nothing wrong with that.

    Not sure you'll be able to see your tips much less any tits if this fog stays put

    That looks like pretty solid drinking in the parking lot weather.

    At least with the temp inversion, your beer will stay cold down there

    If the snow turns to shit, maybe I'll just do laps of the line for 2

    On the bright side, if you can't see where you're going, we won't be able to see how screwed up the entry to Nash is.

    The entrances wont be fucked until about 930
    I have a responsibility to not be intimidated and bullied by low life losers who abuse what little power is granted to them as ski patrollers.

    Jokes on you, I'm gonna bring my whole crew through to sideslip the entry.

    I still think the most advanced slope this time of year is the ramp atop 2

    The gold course wasn't to bad this afternoon. It was pretty empty, and I only hit one little ice patch. It was pretty foggy half way up the mountain though.

    Hopefully central will be nice on Sunday outside of being a shit show

We sometimes head back over, other times work S to the Kendall Road and glide out the road, dodging snowshoers and hippy stickers, to Gold Creek SnoPark.
    Noted. Thanks. Yah this area and Roaring Ridge/Mt. Catherine area seemed like the most learner friendly areas of the pass. Good terrain with lower consquences

    Jason Hummel has made public the end all skier photograph of the century on his Facebook page. It’s basically a silhouette of a skier with her skis like pointing up and away to the left all in shadow while she is suspended in the air and the snow tracers coming off her skis are the only thing in the photo that is lighted. Backlit to be specific.

    A fair amount of Roaring Ridge and Mt Catharine isnt lower consequence terrain

    Agreed, I think nearly everyone I know has gotten cliffed out their first time on Catherine. Plenty of terrain traps too.

    For "learner friendly" I'd probably point more toward Kendall Stump and maybe Cave Ridge, but I suppose getting cliffed out is usually a decent learning experience too

    Ha. True and true.

    Add Snow Lake Divide to the list of learner friendly

    Even on the NW facing lines of the peak? From the top angling slight skiers left.
    From Google Earth and CalTopo it seemed there was a sweet spot of lower consequences and cliffs from the peak.
