    I'm training.

    For the first time in 30 years I bought some tire chains this summer; from the thrift store, brand new. And I practiced putting them on.

    Because nothing is gonna keep me away from BBI19 alpy.

    'Specially not some chain requirements.

    Stoked about this forecast! Maybe all the rain nuked the hoar frost? I drive a fat old slow subie with snow tires and got stuck in the hayak parking lot. It was a complete gongshow and I would have been able to escape if I had chains (debatable) , but that's what I tell myself and now I own them. I'm glad Officer George Green is cracking down because a lot of drivers learn stuff through denial and error by crashing out.

    Spectacularly reactive at High 2 today. Almost turned to rain in the middle of the day. More liquid snow than solid rain. Bring wide skis and lots of wax along with your chains if you want to fight the crowds for flat hot pow tomorrow. In good news, it finally looks like winter up there.

    Skier compaction is good for the base.

    I have a responsibility to not be intimidated and bullied by low life losers who abuse what little power is granted to them as ski patrollers.

    Skiing Stevens on a Saturday morning isnt the experience that it used to be it might be a blessing

    While a shit policy, I don’t think there would be many ski area employees who work there with the intent to ski Saturday mornings, or that plan too, unless work requires them to.

    Could be wrong though. Might poll a couple today while we wait in a chain enforcement check point.

    17 pages, 420 posts of training for the new season, should be enough blather to keep this thread focused on what’s important around the pnwet hills & roads.

    Hope you get good news.
    Had I known this season was going to start so slowly I would have had a cleanup in October, now it'll have to wait until spring.

    I'm really looking forward to dealing with guest services instead of skiing at Stevens on Saturday. It's been two weeks since I called their office when I was told that my "new" pass has been printed but is being mailed from Colorado, not from Leavenworth as my wife's pass was. Completely dysfunctional. Vail waits til Nov. 29th to publically inform non-epic pass holders that their passes are no longer valid.

    Who's gonna be at Alpy this season midweek (tues-wed)?

    It appears Vail has no interest in being a part of the PNW ski community and is determined to throw a wrench in my midweek plans, so I think I'm gonna make the extra 30-minute drive on occasion. Some days I'll have the wife in tow, but others I'll be flying solo and it would be cool to have a knowledgeable local show me around. Happy to do the same at the Windy.
