    I thought that was the reason for the stickers. The odds are high that I ride an occasional chair with fellow jongs, but no fknas yet!

    What a week!

    Stayed cold the whole cycle - it was 8 degrees when we started up Trimmer on Thursday, and the snow on bonus run was the best I've ever skied there. Mad props to the two splitters who set that skintrack the day before. Wednesday was my first Minden Mile in years - our group was the first of the day to come down, and again the snow was as good as it's ever been down low.

    On the downside, I've shoveled so much snow that it's given me lateral epicondylitis, the roads have been crap, and the snow has collapsed the wall around my deck. NVDOT didn't even bother to plow downtown until yesterday!

    It's been mostly wind in South Lake so far. Only a couple inches on the ground - but that seems to have just changed and it's coming down harder now. Coming up tomorrow morning could be a tough ask, might want to get out here tonight if you plan to ski Sunday.

    Hard to ski with 2500 pennies in your pockets.

    My skiing isn't stoke worthy but here's some snow stoke--a 3 foot snow curtain hanging from my deck rail. I've never seen this before--the snow piled on the deck rail from the last storms fell over but had enough cohesion not to fall off.

    Lots of fun out there today. Skied three laps with Mashed Potatoes before anyone showed up. Pali laps were skiing like untracked. Plenty deep to huck. Hooked up with the family at 11, then left them at the lodge and took two more off 10. Hard to see anything in Eagle, but skied amazing. Baby Kodak was plush. Then a few laps with the family down Ooops and Poops. So impressed with my son after that, I let him call it a day. Brought him in so my wife could keep lapping the trees.

    It bit breezy now. Doubt Ill get back out even if she comes back soon. I think 10 closed and 6 wont last much longer.

    Hard to tell how much snow has fallen today and how much is just blowing around. Good times.

    Today did not suck.

    Spats, the splitters who laid that skin track either need some instruction from someone who understands efficient BC travel, or they should hit the crack pipe after rather than before the tour.

    Fortunately there was a solo skinner just ahead of us today who occasionally got disgusted and set a track requiring a heel elevator (!) that we packed down for the late risers.

    U12 Far West Slalom race @ Sugar Bowl got cancelled after one run because conditions were nasty so I took my 10 year old out and we tore it up. I wish I could've stayed until the last chair as it was so dead on Lincoln. There wasn't even a line but 80 was getting gnarly so we jetted. What a day of nonstop refills. Can't wait for tomorrow.

    Desktop I assume? Open your photo and then rotate it around, even if it started in the correct position. Then save. It somehow fixes it.

    That's a cool shot.

    Fingers crossed that CalTrans is faster tomorrow AM than they were Tuesday. We shall see.

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.

    OFFICIAL TAHOE 18/19 STOKE, CONDITIONS, WEATHER THREAD

    Caltrans should enjoy a long breakfast tomorrow morning. No need to get on the road work until 10am or so. Get the pass open by 1pm and the Spur a little later.

    Love that zone. Bet it was great today. A bit away from the lifts was great today. Nice deep turns.

    At Heavenly with outta town folks today.
    Gondola running super SLOW all morning, long ASS LINE.
    Gondola closes at 1pm, everyone is herded towards CA Lodge.,
    Stayed on the NV side, lapping trees on Comet & Olympic all day, no lines, freshie refills every run.
    Traversed over to CA side, good stuff, but many folks. Got in Shuttle line at 445 (to get back to Gondola village), called UBER at 6pm because freezing ballz off, buzz waning, and Heavenly support staff told us at least another hour wait....WTF. That sucked.

    Red crushing LAT's. (low angle trees)

    East Bowl was money today. Lapped it from 1-4.

    Had a beer in the CA lodge bar after and then waited in a crazy long line for the shuttle bus back to NV. Heavenly royally screwed the pooch on logistics today. Heads should roll.

    PS Great shots posted above. Stoke is high.

    They do not care. Standard operating procedures.

    3yr old ripped 7 & 9 today for 3 hours. He was having a ball.
    I'm cool with this, as long as you Kirkwood Bro Brah's stay away from Heavenly when 88 closes- TahoeBc

    Could be a real challenge to get anything open today, after blowing nearly a foot before bed out of my driveway and randomly waking up at 4:15 to find 2 more feet in the driveway and the road unplowed it my be difficult for employees to even get to work today.

    Spent 1 1/2 hours clearing snow, with loose sluff avalanches coming down off my berms and its still pounding, holy shit
