    Not the bottomless turns we got at kirkwood yesterday but Waterhouse was entertaining enough for a couple laps. Prolly should have made the trek back out to the wood.

    Besides being to lazy to drive back out there today, we had some concerns on wind loading out there, late afternoon yesterday the wind was moving a lot of snow around.

    Hope everyone walked away if something did go down out there today

    Not ice, but spots with very firm old snow. Crampons were praised.

    Given that it's supposed to freeze tonight, methinks lift-served skiing/riding is gonna be muy interesting tomorrow...AM was completely tracked out/cut up by 10 am this morning (though it kept skiing well up until I called it at 11:30).

    That said, they are calling for more snow tomorrow night, Sunday, Monday night, and Tues, turning to rain starting Wed...at least that's the "predictions" as of now...

    Conditions at AM were quite interesting today.
    I slept in, thought about staying in bed, and eventually rallyed at about 10:30. Got to AM a wee bit after 11 and people in the parking lot were "You made the right call, it's just starting to soften up."
    I was on snow by 11:39 and my first run was Thomas' English Muffins crossed with soggy KFC extra crispy (lots of nooks/crannies and crazy lumpy, jagged textures left over from the previous day's fresh snow desecration). Pretty much everything off-piste was chunky.

    Banged out 5 runs mixing up groomers with bits of off-piste and by 12:30 things down low were getting sludgy and sticky, so I called it.

    Expecting another freeze tonight, but also the weather reports are calling for snow tonight and tomorrow, so who knows what Sunday will bring.

    Feels like winter down here. In the garage tuning and prepping skis. Decent rainfall cut the yard work short around noon. Gonna fall behind on my spring outdoor projects if this weather keeps up.

    Had a very old pair of 175 VCTs returned to me. These were my rock ski about a decade ago, the. A friend put a pair of Naxos on them. He toured a single lap at KW with me one June. He now has much better skis to mount those Naxos on, so he was gonna toss them a few years back. I grabbed them and put them at the bottom of a pile. With three mounts and beat to shit, figured they were done.

    Realized I have a 10 din binding I can throw into a set of holes. Cleaned them up today, plugged holes and redrilled other. Waiting for things to set and wil mount them up tonight. Been wanting a lazy chill skin to cruise around with my son. Will definitely take these out for a day. Might even be posting in the old guys park thread. I recall landing, taking off switch on these and sticking 3s. Only wish those holes were for pivots. I rarely land perfect.

    Hope this weather clears out by next Saturday. Want spring firm, corn, slush, mush, not TEM w/ xc FFC.

    I was on the same plan. Loaded Summit for my 1st run right about 11. Groomers were good, off piste stuff was a bit challenging, where more traffic had been through, it ski'd better. I did 10 before I bagged it, only really awful run I took was 3rd Sister, deep & sludgy! Thought Palisades & Pete's ski'd OK, Waterfall was better after 1 than before Noon. What was needed was a group to side slide down and compact the sludgy, mank bowling balls to flatten things out, then we coulda lapped it, woulda ski'd nice.

    3/4” rain since noonish down here. Still coming down moderately. We’re at 2.3” in my neighborhood over the past four days.

    Thoughts on tomorrow? Manky or cold enough for a Friday redux? Contemplating the drive...

    can't believe that still goes to the road. and now I'm editing to see it does not quite.

    1.74" since noon on my street. Mayuary for sure.

    Make that 1.97". I know this one is more coastal, but that is a hell of a lot of water.

    Was surprised by their 5" total. Sure, this thing was way more coastal, but wheat 2.96" of rain in Santa Cruz since noon yesterday. Still super impressed with our totals and have been cross references gauges. Looks like I won't need to water the garden for at least a week, even if the next round totally misses us. Cisterns are completely full again. I imagine the right spots are just caked. Hope this weather forecast holds with a slow warm up over the next few days. Would suck to see this stuff all wet slide and take forever to heal.

    Straight up butterscotch cloud pow at Squaw from 11:40 - 12:40: thick 'n creamy.

    Currently snowing at my abode (6500) in Truckee, but also the sun is shining and the previous night's accumulation of snow is melting off the roof and trees at the same time.

    Great closing day at Alpine today, full on face shots in Three Sisters and Keyhole. Then skinned up Sugar Bowl on the drive home to the Bay and found more good pow with a bit of a crust in a few spots, but still dumping while I skied down
