    My buddies and I call it the "fun wall", like "gotta get over the fun wall before it closes".

    in Kirkwood we call it trapped in the" fun sandwich"

    Not in extreme situations like this storm. When itís this cold and snowing hard its impossible for plows to keep up and all the chains would be hitting is packed snow and ice not the original road surface. Now if you throw R3 in a storm with 7k snow levels, well thatís a different story but thatís not what I was talking about.

    Good day to drink wine and pick up our shipment in Camino. Kids can mess around and we can drink. Win-win.

    Was coming down pretty good for a bit. Bluebird tomorrow should be sweet.

    How come everyone is posting about traffic instead of skiing today?

    Pretty awesome day at squaw, broken arrow, kt, good snow. Yeah, a lot of people, but once the upper mountain opened, kt was just a minute wait.!!!

    And I still think that if there were fiscal and regulatory incentives for winter rates tires, more people would use them, and thereíd be less accidents. At least thatís what the euros and canuckistanians claim.

ID:	270153 I drive over Mt rose hwy for work 5 days a week and see no need for studs. Chains ruin the whole flow. Luckily those gapers are on the road after the worker bees are done. Yesterday was too deep and had to skin down much of Tamarak. too flat.

    Alpine was nuts deep blower snow with almost zero lines. 80% of the masses were stuck trying to ski the few late groomed slopes on Weasel and Dance Floor. Tomorrow, with the blackout period over, IKON madness will resume normally. Click image for larger version.

    Thanks for the well wishes, old goat hope itís not serious!

    Pics Iíve been seeing on Instaclaim have been ridiculous. Girlfriend said yesterday she was getting face shots like every third turn, today every turn and had to time breathes to keep from choking.

    Left town so I would not be tempted to try and ski again, even the San Jose hills had snow, hereís mount Hamilton today


    Heard a troller at Sierra was doing sweep at the end of the day and thought he heard someone in the trees yelling he ended up finding some dude buried up to his neck in a tree well, he might not have made it though the night if he hadnít been found.

    I saw all sorts of vehicles with shitty tires and even chains spinning out on Tramway and Benjamin today. Kingsbury to Meyers was a breeze, just had to dodge a 2wd car here and there.

    Skiing was fantastic, just like it has been for almost the entire month. Too busy and tired to take photos.

    Blackout Days are AMAZING. Not sure I really understand the #fail business model. Lodges at 1/4 capacity. Slopes EMPTY.

    Was TO DEEP at the Wood. We Left A Fuck Ton of Fresh. You couldn't get to far from a "track" today type fun.

    Skied for 3 hours with my 3 year old. Snuck a Couple In Too.

    All this talk of traffic, I just had to experience it myself. If the 4hr clusterfuck from applegate to Tahoe today is any indication, tomorrow is gonna be a shitshow of epic/ikon proportions

    The snow load on my roof is pushing my comfort level as well. Time for a beer

    Was at Homewood today and it was too deep.

    It was seriously deep at Squaw today. I spoke to a ski patrol and he said he's been patrolling for 8 years and never seen snow like that at Squaw. Small taste of my 1st run off KT-22:

    Sorry to hear goat. Hope itís minor.

    Dropped the family at SJC at 7:10. Arrived KW 12:20. No traffic in the valley. Snowing as you left El Dorado. Heavy by Cameron Park. Slush shit show, but it kept rolling. Caravan by Strawberry, but it kept rolling. Empty on 89. Parked right at base of 6. Thanks for the idea Supu.

    Suited up, and was on 10 just as it opened. Once, and then basically skied untracked till the end of the day. Found the backdoor was open and just lapped that. So much fun.

    Gonna be good again tomorrow.

    2 minutes and 25 seconds of the fun at Squaw today. Started in the insane lines on KT, did 3 outstanding runs there, grabbed lunch and then headed up upper mountain. What an incredible time up top. Broken Arrow and Solitude were on point. Tomorrow should be even more fun.

    Today was insane at Alpine. Skied waist to chest deep untracked blower until last chair. Got the first line down Scott Chute and then focused on traversing off Scott for the rest of the day. Far skierís right on the traverse off Scott (past Gentian Gully) was maybe the deepest/lightest combination of snow Iíve ever skied.

    I also got the first track down Keyhole and that turned out to be a mistake. It had slid to VERY slick ice that was covered by 4 inches of blower so I couldnít see the ice from above. Zero chance of holding an edge and I ended up sliding head first off a decent sized cliff. Somehow escaped with just a bruise and tracked down the first patroller I saw to warn them and suggest they close it.

    my car is down so i am too mostly. got up yesterday to powderhouse and it was too deep. my less mountain savvy friend had a difficult time not falling and falling even away from tree wells was dangerous on a board. i followed and righted him several times. today no ride so shoveled a bit and built a kicker with a sprinter as the ramp

    Saw a guy with a lost ski post holing down under the gondola at the heave. It was near 4pm and he still had a while to go. He had a phone and already called his friends so we couldn’t do much to help, It was spooky deep out there.

    That really sucks for him^^^^^ I was afraid that would be my situation a week or so ago at Mammoth. Thankfully, I found my ski and bailed for the day. Deep snow is scary shit for this jong.

    Looks really good on the cams this AM. Enough cold snow to smooth it out.

    As expected, traffic in knots in TC. Getting anywhere is gonna be a challenge. Who's at AM?
