    I think the debate on when to start the new thread is officially dead. Last year we started it WAY early, got off to a slow start, then had one of the best seasons ever. Jinxes, reverse jinxes, whatever - all out the window at this point.

    Congrats to you guys all moving...

    Was gonna go patch skiing today. Checked the forecasts for Mt. Lola, Castle Peak, and Carson Pass. All said high winds and rain-turning-to-snow. Add to that lower temps overnight (which would equate to crusty, boilerplate-styled suncups) and I decided to bag on hiking/skiing as I didn't want to summit one of those spots and then get hit with wind and rain and shitty patch conditions.
    Of course when I woke up today things were clear as a sunny day and my skiing buddy and I thought perhaps we had bailed prematurely.
    Then it began raining around 10 am.
    Now it has turned to thick, gloppy snow at my abode (≈ 6500 elevation) and some of this sludge is actually sticking to the ground, deck, and roads.
    Gotta imagine that it's coming down more congealed and consistent in texture (i.e. more like real snow) at higher elevations.
    If somebody is able to ride/ski this today or tomorrow, I say it's on for 19/20...


    Also there's more rain-turning-into-snow forecast for later in the week...

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.

    In any case, if you're ever really in this situation make sure you at least bargain in a couple of fluffers.

    Once I see pix of Gimpy shredding Kingsbury Grade today, then I'll concur...



    Snow at my pad is already melting and disappearing.

    Ski areas are hiring, people are looking for lodging and ski leases.
    Truckee ski swap is Nov. 2. SLT 10/13.
    Is the thread mainly for beta or stoke? If stoke there have been recent years when the thread would never have started. But I don't really care. The jinx has been discredited.
