    Maybe im missing something, but this has been an average to below average year.

Pretty much everywhere is close, but below average for the year, highway 20 has about 70% of the snow that it had last year, etc.

    Hasn't been a bad year by any means, but this has probably been the worst winter since the non-winter of 14/15 AFAIK.


    Good news is that winter may be over, but still have a few more months of ski season if you want it!

    It was really nice to have pretty much all of Jan/Feb just consistently cold, I think crystal might've had one day of extremely nominal refreeze in those whole two months. I don't remember skiing the lower elevation stuff (like off short-north) nearly so often last season, or in nearly such good snow. So it's been a nice season for that alone, regardless of totals.

    FWIW I expected rain every day, so I've been pleasantly suprised - just whisper "la nina" to yourself every morning and your expectations will hit the floor. It's like self-help, except it's the opposite of that.

    Thinking about swinging by Crustal tomorrow and hoping for the best - anybody want to meet up for some soggy turns?

    Had some damn good turns at Mt. Dweebus during the first half of today. Unexpected. And fun. And I'm worked.

ID:	277509Us as well. Predictions are okay but there is nothing better than finding out for yourself that too many people live their lives based on them. Edited to add that we weren’t at Mt dweebus which I take it to Crystal. We were at our windy hill paradise.

    Baker was interesting today. Half death runs of chunder and half pockets of boot deep fun.
    Hoping this storm leaves some goodness for tomorrow.

    Crustal is on the docket for us tomorrow.

    My inertia has grown since returning. At least I got the gardens turned over and the studs swapped out.

    Heard the wind blew shit everywhere, and unfortunately telemetry shows it gusting into the 60's mph tonight. Whatever. Any late season snow is a plus, maybe? I'll find out tomorrow with the kiddo.

    Chair 8 was closed for the day by 1pm.
    By far the biggest wind gust I've ever been on a chair for. Never wished I had a bar on a chair before that ride.
    Hoping still for some decent runs tomorrow.

    Upper mountain at Crystal was pretty solid this morning. Got 3 good laps in campbell almost right after 6 opened before a crash cut my day a bit short. Wind was pretty non-existent on that side of the mountain surprisingly. I'll take it considering it's April 7th!

    Crustal top 500 vert had good snow, eroding by the vertical foot into wrench potatoes by 5500.

    Still had fun, everything from total milk soup vis to bluebee electric sky. Groomer honking was good by 1:00.

    Concur. Everyone I talked to said yesterday was the day, guess I picked the wrong one this time. Powder bowl main chute was still pretty nice though and worth several laps.

    Even though South never opened I was thinking how nice brain damage looked. 10 seconds after taking this photo ski patrol popped it, and it slid all the way to the bottom.

    South actually opened around 2:30. Rode chair 6 with a patroller when he got the radio announcement. Didn’t get the impression the snow was great but he said they wanted the skier compaction.

    Figures, that was right about when we were heading down for the day. Hope a few hardy souls found the trek worthwhile.

    Same - although looking back up that way right after it opened, seemed like it clouded over to ping pong ball real quick.

    Buster, pleasure to meet you and share a chair out north.

    The hike was a bit disorienting, yeah... we caught a little window of light up top that made the descent much better. It ran really nice up there, much better than I expected! DFF was a soup though. Wish I'd run into you all!

    Thinking Thursday.
    Of course, let me know when is good for you and I'll try to make it.

    Sure would be nice if the Summit opened Alpental weekdays since nothing else is holding snow up at Snoqualmie.

    Agree...
    The roll back this year started early and sets an unfortunate precedent (in my view) for the new management regime. Lots of taking away so far.
