    Nuking winds today, could hardly stand our ground much less even take a look into our intended line, retreated to lower angle and more protected and skied pretty much corn, fun enough. Girlfriend got delayed an hour and 1/2 coming back from Sierra for avalanche control, they opened traffic back up and shortly after she got though lots of emergency vehicles started heading up echo. Word on the street is two cars got buried in another wet slide, still closed. Same thing happened to me a few days ago, got delayed at the summit to clear slides, they let us go and on the way down I watched a slide come down and completely blocked the west bound lane, car coming the other way stopped just in time, was able zip by while it was piling up higher

    ^^^^I can imagine there is so much snow up there, that wet slides could be a concern for some time. When I was going over echo this winter, after a storm, with some wind loading, I saw at least two natural stuffs, or really mini avalanches, with 1-2" crowns, break and slide onto the rode as I was heading into the basin. It was pretty damn light and made more of a cloud than anything, but still a bit concerning as I watched them release and come right at me.

    I don't, but it was pretty damn stacked a month ago. Jealous of whatever mission you are planning.

    Deadwood from Roundtop on March 24th
    Like I told my last wife, I never drive faster than I can see, besides it's all in the reflexes.

    Squaw on Saturday was the like an entire season in a few hours. Some fun pow on the upper portions of KT as you weaved through some frozen chunks to full sun, spring Fingers slush radness by 1:30pm.

    The potential for a sleeper pow day was there...but alas, the storm underperformed and its dust on crust at Kwood this morning

    Deadwood has been on my radar for an embarrassingly long time seeing as how i have yet to actually cross the creek and give it a try

    Yesterday might have been my favorite groomer day of the year, fun skiing soft corn that stayed in check with the high clouds till we left at 12:30 at S@T just beating another hwy 50 closure. Just got back from riding in the Carson valley, 43 degrees but snowing on us at the end of our ride. Was surprised to see 50 closed again for avy control today as I rolled back into town.

    When does chair 4 close at Kirkwood? Think itís only about a 5 grand day doing deadwood from there

    Today was not very good. Best turns were off the roof at carson pass back to the car on the augured snow.

    edit- got a message last night from somethingclever about skiing today. had no intentions of going. said no. he said there were chain controls on carson pass. i figured it was just ice from the rain before freezing but i checked the wood's snow stake. it said 3". i said lets go.
    kirkwood's snow stake is stuck on March 19/20. fuck those guys.

    Ha, that's funny about the snow stake.

    Don't know where the roof is, but do you think crescent Moon is still winter snow?

    Haven't been on these forums all year. Too busy wrangling kids at SB and busy planning my kid-free adventures this year, I guess. That and a job where I actually have to work like 40 hrs/week. Good to see everyone keeping the stoke level high. And meter-man posting pics of the #skiboss... that was fun.

    here's another view of Deadwood from Sun. You can see there are some wet slides going a ways.

    And yeah, that was the worst conditions I've ever had on Crescent this past Sun. It was edge-able, but definitely a no-fall day on that line. Especially at the top, when you traverse into the chute proper. A fall on that hanging snowfield would not be recommended...

    4th page of that post - the vid is the coulie. My GoPro was dying (or too cold) so it shut off. Had to restart it midway, then died again near the exit.

    Correct. Chair 4 is closed. We are in extended season!!!

    Vailís new style is to keep the resort open 100% until closing day, which is about 3 weeks earlier than Kw used to stay open. So chair 4 now closes about 1 week earlier than before.

    And the broken shit at Vailwood is nothing new. Vailís big claim to fame at the wood is putting in new stuff like LED signs, snow stakes w cams, and Austrian glass cube bars that all break within months and never get properly fixed. Hell, Vail canít even get the clocks to work.
