    My son was born in early June that year. Somehow my wife let me go to Squaw to catch that powder day in late May when it snowed like 2 feet.

    So if the snow is wet and heavy you’re going to be disappointed? I thought that was your thing? ;-)

    Snow at KW was not blower pow yesterday which is good with these smaller amounts. The rebound yesterday was pretty damn nice, and rarely bottomed out down to the old surface. Quality was improving as the day went on with deeper turns and lighter pow. Higher base = better snow, so I guess today depends on where you go.

    Currently about 5 inches of grade A heavy Sierra cement in Tahoe city. Tomorrow will be ok, but I expect that's about it
    They moved the Patagonia outlet almost 2 years ago!

    Too bad you didn't wait to go down on Friday. Then you could have at least had a beer at the Brewer's Cabinet warehouse facility located across the street from the old Patagonia outlet.

    I’m posting this rad magic carpet photo so I don’t have to keep seeing that wide eyed psycho mug shot on the mobile feed. That is all. So how’s the snow?

    Wondering same.
    Based on fact that Mt.Davidson (Virgina City) is nicely covered in white (looking from CC), it should be pretty good.
    Gonna go hunt for end-of-day leftovers at Rose this arvo.

    FWIW, I just got an email from Boreal.
    They are claiming 13-inches and counting from this last/present storm.
    They also reminded me that they have $25 lift tickets every Friday. That's not a bad deal.
    I've had some fun pow days there as most of the visitors are either in the park or on the bunny slope...

    Boreal’s site only shows $25 tickets on Friday, April 19th, not other Fridays.

    Opps.
    Right you are.
    Bad writing in their press release if you ask me. They announce "Feel Good Fridays" (plural), but then when you read the fine print it's really just "Feel Good Friday" (singular) on, as you mentioned, April 19th.
    They need a new PR person!

    Or at least a better editor.
    (and I, apparently, need to bone up on my reading comprehension skills!).

    ^^ Had the same thoughts based on the few times I've met him around town in recent years. But don't tell anyone in the FWT thread.

    Snow looks good. Hoping it stays that way for tomorrow.

    They are rad for the BC missions! Had my doubts about the swiss-cheese holes already in them, but they seem to be holding strong. Big thanks for the deal. Nice pics

    Can confirm that today was good, snuck away for a couple laps this morning at Alpine. Probably my favorite sub-four hours of skiing all year! Nice cream cheesey snow with blue bird skies and cold temps. Surprisingly light for almost being April. And things are very very filled in.

    Cream cheese spackle was definitely better than I expected. And about as filled in as it gets. The coverage on some features/areas may be even more than 10-11! High T delivered. It wouldn't break the fomo meter, but today was a nice surprise with how wet the storm started. I expect some quality wind buff tomorrow

    whhaaa? get that knee healed!

    telek can be telek forever in my book. I don't know anyone else who can stomp double-backies on broken bindings. Honestly, I think he'll get bored of alpine skiing. I mean, he rides at Sugar Bowl!

    Bear Valley Resort was fabulous today. Opened Grizz bowl, west ridge and snow valley before 10am. Bluebird and the snow was ridiculously light, face shots all the way down Grizzley. Good job, BV.

    That's because they were all at Powderhouse. It was the full junk show with a guy snowshoeing in the skintrack, dogs (TWO three-legged dogs, WTF?), and a snowboarder literally hit me while I was skinning in the track just after crossing the stream. I yelled at him and he just laughed...what a dick.

    All of that aside, the snow was fantastic and I motivated for 7 glorious laps.

    KW delivered one of the best pow days with quality snow, few peeps, no lines after noon, and snuck in one final untracked line with the T Bar hike.

    The Praxis Protests again delivered a stupid awesome day all over KW. KW + awesome snow + Protests = a deep March day to remember.

    Ha. I was still with the GF at the time...he was just maching down the skintrack and couldn't be bothered to yeild to uphill traffic, I guess. PH tests my patience sometimes, but the ease and quality of the terrain is tough to beat.

    Seriously, though, 2 different 3-legged dogs in the backcountry in one day? What are the odds? (One of them was a Chihuahua being carried on a guy's chest in a kind of reverse backpack.)

    Hence the reason everybody and their 3-legged dogs was there today...



    FWIW, it started snowing again at my casa about 45-minutes ago...
