    My kids learned at Donner Ski Ranch--that was the next step up from Tahoe Donner and two steps up from the free pony tow at Squaw. My most vivid memory of DSR is sitting on the deck next to the owner and the head of security as the watched some guy steal a pair of bait skis from the rack. DSR and Boreal had a lot of thefts; maybe they still do.

    Thatís a pretty legit lineup for a smaller/local film festival. Most of those titles played one or both of the two major film festivals I just wrapped up working on. I havenít had a chance to see most of them but often smaller festivals have some pretty uneven programming, to be kind. There are only a couple Iím not familiar with and nothing thatís an obvious dog.

    I definitely hope to see ROMA in a 4K theater while itís still doing a theatrical run. Itís got a best picture shot (fwiw) and I donít think watching it streaming would do it justice. Iíd be surprised if incline village was 4K but Netflix didnít let us show it with less than 4K image and 7.1 sound.

    This is probably a considerable financial outlay and a breakeven proposition at best for the organizers, so if you think itís cool or interesting please go support.

    All i know is that I ordered a kirkwood pass two weeks before going up, waited in line for an hour and fifteen minutes on a powder day to get it. Spilled my thermos so I bought a cup of coffee - $6 for small brewed coffee

    Rose got snow made and a beginner wrod open a month earlier, their staff make me feel warm and fuzzy and if I end up needing to buy something there I don't feel like I'm being treated like a tourist

    Anyone have suggestions gloves that will fit over a wrist cast? May have some old big mitts that'll work. Years of skiing and rock climbing and I slipped taking the trash out and broke my wrist on Tuesday

    I am bummed that they are showing The Other Side of the Wind so early in the day on Sunday (f$%king work!).
    I also noticed that a number of the films they are showing are already streaming on NF...so curious as to whether or not the fest got a deal from NF to screen these films...

    Interesting line-up, to be sure, since, as you said, many of the films have already made the festival rounds, have played in major markets (SF/LA/NY, etc) and some of them are even available on DVD or via streaming...

    fwiw, Border is the official Swedish entry submitted to the Oscars this year...

    I used a skin bag back in 2012. Somewhere in the beginning of the week I broke my hand in two spots. the cast was pretty warm so just the bag covered it and the jacket and cinched up nicely. But the video shows the progression nicely. Not sure what the black thing was that was my first choice. Then I went with xmas stocking plus plastic baggy. then i settled on the skin bag

    If you can't find your giant mitts, let me know. I'm pretty sure I still have some large Outdoor Research goretex shell mittens that'll fit over anything. They're uninsulated though -- just shells.

    I learned to tele at DSR.

    Not sure if that was a good thing or a bad thing.

    The sense I got from Norm Sayler when I last spoke to him, and my brother just the other day (works at SB), is that the SB homeowners/management are perfectly fine staying independent. I think the unique nature of that HOA and who owns there is pretty decent insulation from the industry trend. For now, at least.

If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.

    thanks, chup. found old shell mits and will see how they work tomorrow or this weekend. hoping it'll work for touring but not banking on being able to hold a pole

    I sold my wife's tacoma to norm sayler this summer. Dude seemed wasted at 10 a.m. on a weekday... plus buying a 15 yr old toyota to run a 'ski resort' with...doesn't get more OG than that

    Another thing Iíll blame on Vail. It is the type of crowd they attract

    Iíve been leaving my skis on the racks for years with no issue.

    Hope your buddy finds them on CL or somewhere.

    DSR gets props for sure. And if I was up on the north shore more, Iíd likely send beginners there. But the one time I skied there with Dookey and Shcralp and a few others, we were done by noon.

    Good to hear SB is not getting swept up in this mess.

    I am sure glad the marketing departments have blessed our snow pack. Woot Woot for the Wood being 100% GAME ON!

    And Ottime last Sunday people were waiting in line for 45 - 60 minutes to PURCHASE lift tickets. They were also walking 3 miles in Ski Boots to ski 1/2 of the mountain. Circa 2005/2006 it would easily take an hour to park and an hour to leave EVERY weekend if you were not early. They need to bring that vibe back.... and those JMetzger Group College Passes. The good ol days when you needed to ride with your own safety belay line.
    I'm cool with this, as long as you Kirkwood Bro Brah's stay away from Heavenly when 88 closes- TahoeBc

    Fun day at Rose on Wednesday as my kids school went from a two hour delay to full on snow day. Time to ski!

    A bit of traversing on the Slide side led to some fun turns in 8-10 inches of light dry pow.

    My boy getting some pow turns in. At age 14 I'm wondering how much longer I'll be better than him as time marches on?
    Fun day overall, but take care off the groomed as it's low tide out there. Would not recommend skis that you care about if your venturing off piste.

    Today's BC report: North facing is still holding but anything with sun exposure is rapidly deteriorating. Mashed potatoes are imminent below 8k. The surface hoar on really sheltered spots is pretty thick and totally unconsolidated. I suspect a week if warm weather will smash it but pockets could persist...Click image for larger version.

    I would think most areas would have at least five inches or more on top of the 12/4 hoar. this looks like new hoar on top of that from the past two nights which should only be above the inversion layer.

    Triggered some pretty good sloughing to the 12/4 hoar layer yesterday. Once it gets weighted...watch out!

    Yeah, the 12/4 SH layer is 10 cm or so down in the pole creek/squaw valley area and nice and reactive to shovel tilts and ski cuts. It does look likely to persist until we get a warm and/or strong storm that blows it up. Get out there and ski and knock that shit down before it gets all loaded!

    There was also a new layer of 3-5 mm surface hoar on the surface of the snow near and above treeline on shaded aspects on silver peak today.

    Solar aspects did indeed get their melt on today and held a nice 5 cm sun crust on my way out at 3pm, but all shaded aspects were holding cold snow down to my car at 6200'. The weakass december sun is barely making it above the ridgelines so I don't agree that mashed potatoes below 8k is imminent for any aspect with a N component.

    Too much fun out there right now. North facing is still money. West facing is real baked and real heavy.
