    Season extended at Vail resorts by 1 week, woohoo! Now they're only open 11 weeks less than Squaw! And ∞ less weeks than Mammoth!

    Not sure how the #fail business model really works. We were in Park City for xmas and skied all of the other blackout days. They are seeking to provide an experience for those guests, built a financial "Wall" and kept most out. Better "Experience" than almost every other weekend. We ski all of them. Blackout days lead to empty lodges and bars, you do see many rental skis though.w

    While I appreciate the motive, given the hype around this "Innovative Social Venture" made by someone who was "an early employee at Lyft and worked at Airbnb", I expected their "trusted online platform that serves the needs of the homeowners, employers, and employees." to be more than just a google form. You'd think by now the tech crowd would have figured out how to embed forms into their own website.

    hah. no, I don't think Vail really gives a shit but maybe with the previous years of bitching it had a small influence who knows.

    I'm going skiing. Anybody's around say high!

    So Rudy skis Alpine now? Shit. I thought a purist like you would only ski Squaw.

I know nothing of the former. But the latter is made of courage, and skill, and grace in the presence of the possibility of death. 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.

    I'd be pretty pissed to get stuck up there for 3 hours! Seems like a major problem for a lift that's only a few years old.
    Late reply here but I just saw another story that was similar. This one is even more ridiculous, where are the Ski Patrols? Where is the staff?

    I found everything out there today from mank to corn to scoured ice to wind-buff to breakable crust, all with a solid helping of knock-you-down wind. Good times!Click image for larger version.

    Lots of nice windbuff at Squaw today if you knew where to look. Better than expected out there and even got a few heavy face shots from some preserved pow.

    Also, wow...

    Did you drop the North side of that hill you were on? If so was it worthy?

    Huck, we skied NE panel higher up, and it was pretty wind-effected, and a bit upside-down slabby, so we decided to skip the N on that one. Had to finish by 9 too...so dunno! Lemme know what you find… This winter just wont quit! Wooooooooo,!!!~¥!§

    TLDR; Ski faster. Quit breathing. Don't crash.

    Several inches or more at Alpine this morning. Their snow reporting is basically the exact opposite of Northstar’s...

    I was on 6 when guy hit it and looked like 10'. Could have been bigger.

    Looks like a 10 footer from below, though depends on the speed necessitated by the length of the straightline, which looks fairly short/wide. Tough to judge until you're in it. I skied it back in 2010 on a perfect day. This is the most accessible it's looked since but still not sure I'm doing it again!

    Sounds like a few more storms and it will be just a straight line. A few more and folks will be making moguls on the cone. Get it before it gets bumped.

    I don’t know about Northstar “inflating” their numbers. Homewood is reporting 535 inches for the season and Squaw got almost 100 inches more than Alpine. How does that happen unless you are measuring at different elevations or on different aspects? Lots of wackiness with resort snowfall numbers this year.

    That's just it. The reporting used to be a bit more scientific, and they would at least tell you at what elevation they measured.

    Nowadays, it's all marketing BS. Put the snow stake at the point on the mountain that captures absolutely the most snow.

    Northstar's snow stake is on the north side of it's highest peak, just a few hundred feet down in the deposition zone.

    That's like squaw putting theirs right under the palisades, just ain't right!
