    Funnily enough, I skipped hitting AM today because yesterday "The Saddle", "Keyhole" and all the other "hike-to" lines were closed. Figured they'd be closed today, too. Oh well. Glad you got to hit some of that stuff!

    Definitely some fun pow at Sugar Bowl today. Skied from 10 until 1:30. No complaints for mid-May

    And it looks like Squaw extended its KT run. Still spinning this morning. Liking Alterra more and more. Let the snow dictate, not some suit in some office looking at some spread sheet.

    Squaw was pretty damn fun yesterday. My son and I ended up lapping Red Dog Ridge and skiing the smooth hot pow near Far East for most of the day.

    I put in a lot of tracks there yesterday, probably rode the same chair at some point. It's a bit of a traverse but worth it for sure yesterday.

    Snow was still fairly cold upper mtn, but a big cloud made vis less than ideal. Lower mtn was super chunk and death cookies

    Did the bumps under KT and Oly fill in, or was that still deep trough city? If it buffed out a little, and KT spins, I might spend a day at Squaw next weekend.

    No troughs yesterday to worry about, but definitely some sharks if you weren't paying attention

    Upper mountain at Squaw today was good. Heavy chalk and creamy windbuff in some spots, smooth and chunky in others.
    North facing aspects off the top of Headwall were the jam.
    Skipped riding over by Shirley and Granite Chief because it was socked in with fog/clouds all day.
    Lower mountain (we hit Sun Bowl around 1pm) was really, really chunky and gooey and pasty (especially that bowl down by the bottom of Headwall, next to the groomer/easy way down from KT).
    Bailed at 1:30, mostly due to jacket malfunction (zipper broke and my jacket was flopping all over the place).
    Good post-pow day though.
    Hoping this next weather cycle delivers.

    Funny about all y'all being over by Red Dog yesterday...I was lapping the area under that big rock outcropping in the saddle just before you get to the top of Far East during my stint on the hill.

    How many people have been skiing AM. I get that it sucks, but as stated, Vail set the bar pretty damn low. While they are still operating the Heave, ya gotta access via the Gondi to ride two short not steep east facing lifts. Most spring days that shit is cooked by the time you offload your first chair.

    All things being equal, Iíd rather they spin Summit over KT. I think. I used to love spring skiing at AM off of Summit. $29. Groomers first thing, then ridge hikes skiers right, then to High Yellow, then Keyhole, followed by bumps when things got too heavy. Perfect. At Squaw ya gotta go all over the place timing the lifts. And the groomers kind of blow there. So short.

    Anyway, better than not spinning KT.

    Why they donít keep AM open one more weekend is perplexing as Iím sure it things will be more crowded next weekend.

    fuck them. i went there cause it was the last day and now i have to do it all over again!
    just kidding it was a blast. completely worked after four runs but it's getting better and i'm cleared for skiing again on 6/18 so i wanna be ready for that.

    went in search of corn up red lake peak main gully today and found it but got turned around early with a broken dog nail.

    doesn't really matter cause tomorrow is another pow day, but the corn had set up but with intermittent sticky spots and it was schmoove

    It really is a bummer considering Alpine is the best resort for spring turns in the region... but, it could be worse. Hoping if they get their gondola they may start to keep it open later but probably wishful thinking.

    There and KW. Late spiting I prefer KW for its mostly north facing steeps. OTOH, inversions can fuck up the overnight freeze. Summit@AM offers way more varied terrain, and the groomers are longer for early morning firm. So I guess it is better spring skiing, as different aspects soften at intervals thru the day.

    Killing it at the pass gents. Canít believe how fat crescent looks.

    *Yeah, but...*
    MM just had one lift, 11, open earlier, now all on hold - light snow/heavy wind.
    Whereas SV has all scheduled lifts open now.
