    Speaking of being on top of Elephant Back
    Cornice collapsed yesterday and took the storm snow with it.

    Surefoot at Squaw. Not cheap but the custom insoles are really really good. Game changer for me and my fucked up feet.

    I'm still using surefoot insoles I had made when they were still down at the junction of 89 so circa 2003. They've held up as well as any orthotic I've had made

    I know! But they are fucking fantastic. I always had ski alignment issues before, including with other custom insoles. So I guess the qualifier is they are great if you have seriously messed up feet. All those years of soccer and whatever else puts me in that category.

    KW fun this afternoon. Parked at 12:55 on slope by 1:16. Put in 10k with my son. 2 on 10 and 5 on 6. I think Im stoked. Called it at 3:45 and came home to dig out the cabin.

    Now he has it in his head he can hit 30k tomorrow cause he has all day.

    KW knocking the grooming out. Finally Vail gets it. When its fat and spring, make some of those runs more accessible. The Wall, Montes, Zacks, Janek, Olympic and I assume Sentinel all groomed off the top. Olympic had some nice wintery chalkiness to it. Hit that twice. 2nd time fast.

    Found some wintery off piste on the ridge left of All The Way. Good day.
    dude, missed you today!

    They even groomed lookers right of 99 steps I guess for folks hiking from the top of 10? Kinda weird but yeah major thumbs up to Vail as all that stuff is in play for my kids when it's groomed. Not so much when it's not.. Side note, I've never seen California chute that tracked out, it was practically moguls.

    Butterflies flying all over the backside, must be spring!

    I appreciate that. Your ski season resembles my MTB season... out 6 times per week. Was just curious. Jealous on the flip side tho!

    Bummer man. Would have been fun to spin a few laps with you. Around today? We are on spring break. So lots of juice and too much apres Wii.

    Where did that 99 steps groomer go to? Did it run all the way to the chair 4 flats?

    I like that they are bothering. KW used to do a lot in spring, but Vail really cut back on the grooming spring and winter. Not sure why given their customer demographics. It sure does help for morning laps when everything is still frozen.

    I know groomers are really just things to avoid, but Im of the belief that is when the snow is good. Last weekend we spent all our time in the trees. Yesterday, not so much.

    And yes, the butterflies. Insane. Plenty on the front side ridge. We hope to find some today. My son wants a picture with them. He kept saying to who ever would listen, this is the highest elevation Ive ever seen a butterflies. Weird, right?

    Pointing out of this terrain looked good in the photo. Not pictured is the failed-turn-in-avy-debris-chunder into a classic off-balance-unintentional-20 footer-to-flat at the end of the bubbs. Gotta nail the exit!

    Got home mid-morning, wife went to Alpine and reported top-notch chalk on N-facing aspects. Said High Yellow was $$.

    Rolled down to Squaw mid-afternoon and caught BILLY STRINGS at WWG. Dude wails. Greensky was a yawner compared to that dude. Check him out.

    Monarchs are known to fly to high mountain summits and dance up top - the scientists call it "topping." For real. Anyway, tons up in N Lake too - very glad to see so many - the western population of the monarch is crashing and many think this population is just a few years from extinction. Down 99% from the 1980s! Tell your kid to remember this day because they won't be here forever.

    The snow was prime, so we lapped it a bit -six of those tracks are ours. Still nice to have a few folks go first though, it was very sluffy.

    olympic bootworks at Squaw is where I got mine. Start Haus and Tahoe Sports Hub in Truckee have good reputations. A Squaw patrol friend uses Sports Hub for her boot work. Cheap? Fuggedaboutit.

    Not sure on price but Village Ski Loft in Incline does full custom Sidas
    TLDR; Ski faster. Quit breathing. Don't crash.

    Quite a few on the ridge at Alpine. I've heard about the decline in numbers, but there were times last summer I was mountain biking through clouds of them, seem to be doing ok, at least around here, for now.

    I think those butterflies are Painted Ladies on their way to Oregon

    Yah - Painted Ladies, not Monarchs. Big streamers coming up from the big dessert blooms.

    Rode up the funi w the olympic boot works guy this morning. Sounds like he has a slight different technique for building molds that's sounds much closer to how an actual podiatrist would go about building a real orthotic. Based on the convo, I'd consider him first r my next pair without question
