    17` calm wind and overcast bob with 5/8" of new snow since 5pm.

    Bummed to have missed Big D and Train07 at K yesterday. Texting BD back and forth with him about nothing and never mentioned I was gonna show. Got a call from a friend I haven't heard from in 17 years while I was shoveling, distracted while loading and forgot my phone. Even though we skied the same 3 lifts, I never saw them.


    10+ of new dense snow skied great. The Praxis EXP skied great, love the narrow tail and full camber spring of these mountain goats. Escapade > Flume were really good and repeatable. The exit from Anarchy/Jaunita was a mix of rocks, dirt and water ice with 10% snow, glad I skipped them. Skiing Upper East Fall I spotted a familiar Yellow can And stopped to find a full Sip of Sunshine laying all lonely in the trail. When I visited the Peak Lodge I spotted people drinking SOS and pulled mine out for a free $10 can of refreshing suds.
    Some funny Box rides, guy singing John Prine and some misery, 4 KMS 14 yo kids who shouted back and forth the entire trip. The bubble is pretty cool and those Leitner Pomas are so smooth.
    Think I saw Mr G go by but wasn't quite sure, did not stop to get hot boxed at the 802.


    Get it before all hell breaks loose over the holiday!

    There was just over 6'' when I got there and you could definitely feel everything underneath the new snow but I was a nice change to actually get to make fresh tracks on trails. It snowed pretty consistently all day and I eventually ventured into the trees and found some good turns, but yes it was a little scratchy. It started really dumping fluffier snow in the afternoon from about 1 to 3 and that, on top of the wetter 8'' that had already accumulated, made for some reaaaaaallly fun conditions in the last hour of the day. Basically everything was in play by the end. So much fun finding powder in the trees. Click image for larger version.

    K received another 3" last night. Today should be another fun day. Wish I could ski it but I'm on the bench for a while after crashing into a boulder at Heavenly earlier this week.

    PS Vt-free, good find on the SOS. MNIAW and I found a six pack of Buds on upper Cascade one late spring day. Looks like they had been planted a long time before and enough snow had melted to reveal them. We drank them. They didn't skunk.

    Shoulder Broulder?... sorry, I could not resist. Heal fast, man.


    Sorry to miss you, too VTF. Just never thought you'd venture below the Vermont/New Jersey border. Killington was a good choice, tho. And I'm glad you found that can of SOS we left for you...

    Yesterday's storm produced less snow than expected, but the result was way better than dust on crust. The Waterfall Link skied very nicely on our way to check out the waterfall. The top was blown out so we demurred, chosing to exit via the old alleyway.


    Good turns found throughout The Zone. Yet another end-of-day glade explored. Twig stoke:

    Wind was smoothing over the fresh snow in between runs. Solo days are fun sometimes.

    And a rare monoskier sighting

    ^Rob making sloppy thirds look nice and soft! Fun day yesterday, Rob. I enjoyed the exploring, as did Chris.

    The snow skied way better than I feared it would on the way up. But it was definitely one of those situations where, on the steeper and narrower lines, skier #1 really got the goods, skier #2 had decent conditions if he braided #1's tracks, and #3 was left with quite a bit of scratch to navigate.

    Some more pics:

    A little lost in the upper heights of the WMNF. I enjoyed the hell out of this shwack. Connected a lot of dots for me...

    The morning's skin track almost filled back in. Lousy pic, but it was nice to see in person.

    Low hanging fruit. There was no competition for fresh lines in this natural glade.

    Blasphemer! One foot in front of the other and no ski poles begets a hard boot snowboarder. Feet side by each with no deviation and ski poles is the true monoski Messiah! Bow ye not to false idols...

    if you're up that way, Grand Fond is worth checking out. About an hour farther north and west. Way more chill than le massif and the scenery along the way alone is worth the drive. They seem to usually get dumped on pretty hard whenever it snows up there.

    Early morning lift snafus at Pico today but the skiing did not suck...

    Powday line forms at the Golden...wait and wait....apparently this isn't working...... Golden crowd dashes to the B chair,  only a few loads in, it stops and we're informed this is going to take a long time....Powday line then dashes back to the Golden....another long wait.....then lo and behold, the B chair is loading....Powday line dashes back to the B chair....

    At least the chair to the summit was running and loading when we got there...

    Sorry we missed you Weds VTF...

    I just wouldn't want you to cross this fringe group of "glisseurs" ( their word, not mine) unaware of their cunning. They will inexplicably ban you from ever setting boots in Chamonix (the Mecca) if slighted through a strange mix of subterfuge and bizarre coincidence. Avert your eyes if ever in the true presence... they feed on attention. Plake barely escaped and took months to "reprogram".
