    18" in 48 hrs

    Windy Hill Country Club was in full effect today. Didn't lift a ski uphill and managed face shots on every run I took until TCP.

    El Nino? More like El Ninyah.

    Sunny on Stevens Pass when I drove over it today. This weather is backwards, but I'm good with it.

    So the misses and I will be in Leavenworth for a wedding in early May. It is going to be a fairly short trip, basically a Friday to Monday thing. I have no idea if MR will still be open. Would there be enough snow for some worthwhile skin laps? Is it even allowed or frowned upon? Maybe Stevens is a better option?

    I skin a few laps at Mission every Mother’s Day weekend. Good fun most years, and often lots of others doing the same

    Skinning is allowed whenever the resort is not in operation. The resort usually closes the second weekend of April but has the option to operate on weekends through April 30. Get started early and ski a microwave lap (or a few), then bowl 4 or sugar bowl to the base. The sun does a good job of warming the corn that time of year. S facing aspects are mush by 9.

    I won’t argue with that. A new bicycle comes first though. Second time this season I wished my skis were bigger.

    ^^^ Mission was my home mountain growing up and I've gotten more core shots there than all of the other areas I've gone combined... I may be biased, but the terrain there is really hard to beat though

    Probably the best February I've ever had up at Mission

    https://www.missionridge.com/ Mission has been posting some deals for the last couple weekends of operation. Not sure if they are only on Facebook or maybe they are on their website.

    Depending on the way things play-out, you might be seeing a whole lot more westsiders next weekend
