    Heather is a long, long ways off. It needs a ton of snow to fill in the creek crossings at the bottom. Last year it didn't open until the end of the season.

    At Hoodoos SS indoctrination last month I sat with a guy that's skied those lines and he mentioned some terrain traps. I'll see him Sat. at SS and get the low down on perticulars.

    My kid asked me if Heather would be open yet. I yelled at him and laughed at him until he cried--granted, a bit less than my dad yelled at me when I was a kid. It gets better every generation...

    Not a heather expert, but would echo that we're a long way off. Check out the location of the heather chair in terms of elevation.

Was supposed to meet my buddy at his familys house in Anchorage next week to hang out and check out Alyeska for a day or two, but after the earthquake his family has no water or septic so we called an audible to meet halfway between us at Mt Hood. Never skied anywhere but Tline in the summer so any info or tips are appreciated.
    The biggest issue with Heather is the runout. Depending on how much snow there is on the runout to make snow bridges. Last years problem was decent coverage above 5,000-5,500', well below average below that. If memory serves me correct, Heather open around the first of Feb. 5'-6' of base at the lodge is when it usually opens

    In fairness, just about any ski region in the world could make the same favorable comparison.

    Double chairs suck!

    Has to have enough of a snow bridge to support a cat to get back in there before they open it. 33% of avg snowpack, not happening anytime soon.

    Good seeing you today J. Happy to be a human gate for you. The snowplanks crew could lay down some ruts. Thought the guy with the selfi-stick was gonna skewer my nuts on his pass though.

    Jonesy those guys have you beat in the 180-to-uphill maneuver

    Uphill carving is over rated. But yeah I've seen those guys damanging the groom with blatant
    disregard. We still ♡ flow.

    Though I can see the management wanting to avoid the problems of midway loading, I miss the old midway loading station. However I must admit... the last time I used it I caught a raft of shit from the ski patrol. Oh well.

    At least they didn't put the new Ed Chair right next to Face, that would have ruined my favorite runs. Face would have gone from being great angle of repose powder run, to being just another steep, under the lift, bump run. Every time I ski that run I am thankful. So I guess that works out.
