    Maybe. That slide happened yesterday.
    We had jumped on 4 not long after it opened. Lifty top of 11 clued us in. We'd just got there to meet friends.Might have been noon-ish.
    Actually were gonna head over to fawn ridge, but decided too much slog, so did 2man. Friends chose Tsaddle.
    Not that great, so went back to 6.
    Don't remember seeing Chamoix so fat.
    Ski-school looked weird, all scoured out.
    Getting back to upper lot, from 2, was nice bit of fun.

    The Star was interesting today.
    Crunchy and firmish in the AM.
    Then it started snowing around noonish, a light, but wet set of droppage.
    The PM, roughly around 2pm was pure Rockefeller.
    There was a soft, speed glaze deposited on the mid-mountain that made for some fun semi-fresh turns and also managed to change the manky, somewhat sticky trees into sweet speed pow goodness.
    These tasty conditions lasted for about an hour as by 3:30ish things started to get sluggish again.
    But, damn, if we didn't have 3 runs of supreme cream.
    Gonna be interesting tomorrow...

    oops.

    I actually checked out oops at the end of the day but just can't seem to ever get really comfortable in that particular zone.

    I was over there Pres week. It was mostly all filled in. Like icy chutes. If we get out on another day, letís poke around. Iím no 666 over there, but when there is this much snow, there are a bunch of routes through. Some of the upper ricks even have steep landings. The lower ones donít. Ever.

    But...lets talk about it some more! Its going to be awesome. The expansion is going to dramatically help us get the goods on one of the most under-utilized and infrastructure-confused parts of the mountain.

    And who really likes taking the 15 min ride on the current lift, to flat push that we currently have?! Certainly not me

    I rode it a few weeks back on a storm day and right after I loaded they slowed it down to half speed. Oh man... I was freezing my ass off by the time I got to the top.

    Especially considering even Squaw is only reporting 5"...

    TLDR; Ski faster. Quit breathing. Don't crash.

    How is it gonna dramatically help you get goods you can't now? More to the point, if it eases access cause your too lazy to skate to Sherwood, how many more hackers will do the same? I like it when it's a bit of effort to get over there preserves the goods. Hot Wheels aka weasel is a slow bitch, especially when it's cold, but toughen the fuck up already. It keeps the line to a minimum

    Iíd be stoked on the new lift. Yes, Arts and surrounding area will get more traffic. But probably mostly the same folks just hitting it more. Hopefully one can load at the mid station.

    Kirkwood Pass is up $20 from last year. Epic Pass steady, or maybe even down. Fuck you Vail. They have been working hard to weed out that pass and push everyone to their ruin of the ski world.

    Still missing my old no frills non blacked out $240 KW. I know that was not sustainable, but fuck me it is over 180% more now. But we do have new LED signs and clocks that never work. Maybe in another year out lifts will begin having operational issues too.

    I'm torn as I also almost froze to death on Hot Wheels on a storm day but I'd prefer that they just replace the Hot Wheels lift to the current terminus. Love Experts and Arts, as they don't get skied out as much as the rest of the mountain specifically because it's a pain in the ass to get there. Putting a lift to the top of this will turn the slope into another Summit Face.

    Gaffney reported the slide happened (or was discovered on) Friday, March 1 https://www.instagram.com/p/Bug93lvg..._web_copy_link

    Hot Wheels (currently) sucks balls. Even my 6 year olds hate it. Yes, it sucks to lose stashes. Then again, glad to see Squaw/Alpine focusing investment in lift upgrades and not Village upgrades.

    Next thing you know, they'll actually replace Red Dog with a detachable 6-pack...which they had a permit for and let expire. Internet search sez maybe YES?? http://friendsofsv.org/details-on-pr...-red-dog-lift/

    Yeah I feel your pain. Doing mainly backcountry this year and not getting a Vail pass reminded me of what skiing Kirkwood used to be like pre-Vail. Honestly I am surprised that they still offer the Kirkwood Pass. At least Vail hasnít made Kirkwood one of the resorts that you can ski on black out dates a la Crested Butte.

    Yeah but lets be real. That stash is pretty much never as good as most of the other stashes that you can just hike to from Summit. And hiking for 20 mins off summit is still practically less time than it takes to currently ride hot wheels only.

    Yeah its going to get tracked out quicker, but it already gets tracked out. At least now the effort/track ratio will be more balanced imho. And we'll have actual access to Sherwood like its a real part of Alpine!

    Ya for sure the actual hiking is a whole lot better than that micro stash, although I fear opening up sherwood to more easy access isn't the best for pow preservation either. as I said earlier, killing the svam gondy idea is more important to me. Fixed grips keep it real, but I'm not willing to make arts knob the mtn I die on. I'm suspect however that it will run anywhere near much as it does now once it's on the knob. But I agree replacing it in the scheme of lost stashes is relatively small. And meter's 6 yr old needs to toughen the fuck up
