    Should be awesome. Prepare for possible (likely) gloppy skins.

    That pic is sick gimpy. Often I donít get FOMO from other peopleís pics. I think youíve posted enough that I now have KOMO (knowledge of missing out). Great work.

    Looks like Iíll be slaying the slush next week. Putting the spring wax on today while the rest of yíall harvest more pow and corn.

    Surf is still pumping down her tho, so life is good. Best March for solid surf in many years. These storms are keeping that NW devil wind from developing.

    Free demos at Alpine this morning, although both lots are already full due to wondergrass.

    The demos weren't free? WTF?!?! I walked through but since they didn't have any black crows I didn't bother to stay


    Snow was pretty nice today. The lines pretty non existent too for what a shit show the parking situation was and how many ants were on the hill.

    Isn't it about the time of the year they do demos of next year's gear for people in the business?

    Isnt that basically the Alpine turn-off OR just past River Ranch? Or do you mean a mile north from Squaw turnoff?

    Snow still good out there. Super fun for skiing, also fun for face-planting the skin track!

    Taking it way back in the thread. I was watching TB5 and said whoa this looks familiar. At 23:00

    ^^ Slightly less aggressive line than Backstrom took, but pretty similar. Would be cool if they tried to host a Freeride event on that face again sometime despite past failed attempts.

    Mentioning those hipster sticks for shitty skiers, I'm selling some 185 Black Crows Noctas if anyone is interested. Same orange top sheets that you see in PowDork's videos. Love the skis, just upgraded to the 190cm version this season. Got a good deal originally so selling them pretty cheap ($175 OBO). Mounted once with STH2's on the line at 305 BSL. 7 or 8 / 10 condition, just one notable scrape on the base but not a core shot. PM me if you're interested and/or want some pics.

    Edit: skis have been claimed. That didn't take long!

    There were a couple more from Tram Face later in the movie. Weirdly, part of what caught my attention was a teaser line on the Bec de Rosses in the opening segment right under 'Film by Mike Hatchett". They never showed any more from there

    Run it like a Mavs event. Have a window and if conditions donít align, call it off.

    KW fun this afternoon. Parked at 12:55 on slope by 1:16. Put in 10k with my son. 2 on 10 and 5 on 6. I think Iím stoked. Called it at 3:45 and came home to dig out the cabin.

    Now he has it in his head he can hit 30k tomorrow cause he has all day.

    KW knocking the grooming out. Finally Vail gets it. When itís fat and spring, make some of those runs more accessible. The Wall, Montes, Zacks, Janek, Olympic and I assume Sentinel all groomed off the top. Olympic had some nice wintery chalkiness to it. Hit that twice. 2nd time fast.

    Found some wintery off piste on the ridge left of All The Way. Good day.

    Gimpy, just curious, are you one of those people that tracks ski days? And if so, what are you at so far this season?

    Holy cow we were on top of elephant back remarking how many more tracks there were in the afternoon than the morning. That last pic esplains it.

    Anyone have advice on good custom footbeds around Reno/truckee? Preferably not too expensive but I understand you get what you pay for.
    Thanks
