    It s the last 4 turns of a 500 vert run. After a little shuffle and side step you ski another few hundred down to the house including the meadow in the pic above and the glade down to my street so...not too bad.

    The weekend of January 5th was definitely not the right time to hit Platty this year.

    Was in New Orleans for work last week (including all the storm) so did my best to hunt down some leftovers in the notch yesterday. Weird upside down snow that made for some heinous booting, but was fun to get into some of those runs up there I'd been looking forward to riding since moving up this way.

    Spring skiing this week!

    The ski the east group on Facebook might be the best LULZ on the internets.

    Someone needs to tell Plake that the snow bowl sucks.

    I see what you are trying to do pot stirrer at the beginning of a thaw
    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    Been wavering between 48-51` with balm wind bob all morning under mixed skies. Melting fast like the Wicked Witch of the West. Oh well, such is the East.

    Are you saying they are sell outs because they've reached some kind of discernable level of success?

    Kudos to them for making it a viable business, but I'd phrase it as "they're no longer a cool niche brand if every third person who walks by at the local pizza joint is wearing a STE hat."

    Good on them for potentially making a profit, they found a niche and made it something. However, when soccer moms are wearing their shirts and sitting in their mini vans at base lodges the original statement of “ski the east” is lost.

    It's a different group I am speaking of. It is actually named "Ski the East Group." Should be named "Beaters and Jongs make fools of themselves on the Internets Group."

    MMMmmmmmmm Good out there yesterday. Sooooooooo much snow (except in streams and very wet spots. Those remain sporty to cross ).

    KingdomTele and I went on an adventure in the northern Greens.

    Blank Canvas on the way up had us giddy:


    At the top:


    Twig Mustache:


    I have no Idea why he's smiling.


    Au-natural:


    Trenched:


    Artsy twigs:


    One more twig for the road:
