    Yesterday was WAY better than sat, crowd wise - but still more crowded than I expected . Over by Eagle (lower half) it was spring-like by 10am. Snow at the top of the mountain was great!
    Lapped wipeout, monument and 'noids a few times with the kids. Nice snow. However, the groomed stripe of Scottys was a cluster-fuck! I was scared for the safety of the people that clearly should not have been on it and the people around them - but also a bit amused. I saw one woman eat it and lose a ski after side-slipping the first 20', slide about 25 yards before losing her other ski and poles and continue to slide out of control all the way to the bottom. I was sure she was gonna take someone out or seriously injure herself. Luckily, she didnt do either. All of the craziness was concentrated right along that little groomed stripe - like moths to a flame. Luckily, that also made it really easy to avoid.

    I think I saw that lady from 23. I was definitely worried watching her. We were counting the boarders who would drop into Scotty's not even make 1 turn before ending on their butt and sliding the whole fricken way down. Saw 2 run away snowboard missiles on Scotty's as well. Crazy.

    On Sat. 23 took us probably 30 minutes to make a lap because there were so many Jerry's that couldn't get off the f'n chair it kept stopping!?!?

    Wished i took a pict of the dude at the bottom of 1 with this huge black hat with "DOPE" in big white letters perched askew on his noggin while he was spilling most of a bloody at 10am. These are the weekends I wish I was somewhere else as the idiot factor was through the roof.

    The line on 23 before ski team lunch was way out the maze. Longest line on a non-pow day I have seen on 23. The lower gondi at 10am on Sun took us 30 minutes! I guess still not as bad as the old days, but way worse than Xmas or MLK.
    He who has the most fun wins!

    Visiting the area for a couple of days, and I had low expectations for today but unexpectedly got first tracks down the main Bardini chute. Snow was excellent until about 8800', where it became mank central.Click image for larger version.

    Haven't been there in ages, but the issue with Scotty's being filled with people way over their heads used to (maybe still) be caused by a signage problem. At the top and behind Cornice there would be prominent signs pointing to Roadrunner saying "Easiest Way Down" and "To Main Lodge". Now imagine you're a newbie and you come to where the road part of Roadrunner ends and ya gotta choose Scotty's or the backside (sure doesn't make sense that the backside would go to Main Lodge without another sign, right?).

    They forgot to put much of a sign there.

    And that is why I bounced Sunday morning. What a cluster fuck of people on Saturday. New routine will be get there about noon Sunday and ski through Thursday to miss the unwashed masses from Hell A over the weekend.
    I understand we all like skiing, but sheese.

    Ran that program last week.
    Sunday afternoon through Thursday afternoon.
    Worked great.
    Never waited more than a few minutes for a lift the whole trip.
    Still amazed the hill is charging $30 to park in the Eagle lot.
    We always bus it up but still blows my mind people pay that.

    Nice shots!

    How was it in Philippe's? How was the exit? I have not even looked at it this year.

    I wish I could run that program! Stupid school for kids...

    I considered paying for Eagle lot parking on Sun after checking out of the condo so I could get at my cooler more easily, but cheaped out and parked down the hill. Bad call - wife ended up renting a locker to put her jacket in because she got too hot and the family spent over 30 bucks on Apres while I schlepped down the hill to get the van at the end of the day.

    Does Mammy still have BAF? Anyone have one to spare? I have a hall pass Presidentís week and might try to ski Tues/Wed. Wishing I bought an IKON last spring and would just chase pow. Instead I might try mid winter Mammy for a few days. Never skied there any earlier than late April.

    Had fun at June saturday and sunday. Arrived at 11 saturday morning and had to walk 75 yards to the lift. Yawpers that night at Tbar were awesome. Sidecountry sunday followed by dinner at the Lift, a walk across the street to High Sierra, and then a walk across the street to see Sherry McConkey at the Tbar.
    Looking forward to spending some time on the lower mountain in a storm

    Can you still park your van overnight in the main lot at June? My folks used to park their pace arrow there for many of my school holidays growing up.

    FS put a stop to overnighting in the lot several years, but sounds like the lightened up. We use to park our trailer there for week of skiing. Then signs went up and they cracked down Good to hear it is on again. The parking lot crew was always cool, and just kind of plowed around us.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    It appears that the pass holder now has to be present to buy BAF tickets, which is a real drag. I'll be in Jackson, so can't help, but if you find out otherwise that the pass holder does not need to be present I have plenty.

    That sucks. I still appreciate when you hooked me up years ago. My 13 yo was just talking about that time. even though heís skied many days since then, that day is etched in his mind.

    This weekend could be fun.
    Masses should be home glued to TV sets and inhaling shitty delivered pizza.
    Who's headed up?

    Holy shit! You're right! Could be glorious! I'm only free to head up on Sunday... due to slave camp. Fuck.

    I'm selfishly hoping they don't open the entire mountain Saturday. I need this, y'all! I've begun with the shakes... need powder soon!
