    Washington is the PNW.

    End of story.

    Now you can either be part of the "yeah, it's snowing in the PNW ski season is upon us!" crowd or you can be men behaving badly. Your choice.
    KQ,

    With all due respect... perhaps it is you who has not been paying attention.

    The silly, somewhat strict criteria for beginning this annual top notch thread of STOKE, per the years-long tradition, have been:

    1. OP has skied this "season". (I take it to begin at the start of the water year, October 1).

    2. OP has skied at elevations congruent with common access and below treeline. Glacier scratchings do not count.

    3. OP has skied at least 200 vert. This point is most flexible.

    Lastly... none of it fucking matters and I'm glad you made the thread. Let's end the squabbling and move forward.

    And please come to Alpental this winter.

    The southern resort is targeting an opening day of Nov. 21st. I have my doubts but they could change...

    Vail is thinking even more optimistically for Stevens

    Okay... Okay... uncle. Though I've been skiing for over 40 years and have been a member here for 20 years (counting Powder time) I see I'm clueless. You all can have you own post the way you want. Deleting in 1....2....3........

    What are you people, a bunch of Neanderthals peering out of the cave? The weather will be what it will be regardless of what any of us post. If only it was so easy but hey... I understand we're in the age of Trump and blame is the game so if you're down with being him go right ahead........

    How? How can a post about snow on a ski web site become such a shit show? Oh yeah........ it's the Internet where people hate and fake news is propagated.

    Seriously. I need to delete this thread and you all can start over. I'll save all those links and send them in a PM to the poster so his efforts won't be lost.

    This.

    The whole "you'll jinx it" is too ridiculous for word.

    Keep the thread KQ. The rules committee shitting their pants over this is worth it alone.

    Wouldn't that be great? It's like "thoughts & prayers." You could say "Grandma's going to die" and jinx it so she doesn't! Win!

    works for me. I was hoping someone would start this. but then again I did the snow riding today. car to car, boards on my feet for all but a few little uphills on the ridge...

    took my dog the long way up to dudley's. fun ride down in deep, to not quite deep enough. pTex barely got a scratch.

    not sure how to picture post.

    And we’re off to a great start. I have a good feeling about this thread, and for the first time this fall, this winter.
