    Can't believe I didn't bring touring gear today! Drinkin in the lot with the other sad sacks. At least the mountain came out.

    Wish I put the touring gear in the car. Note to self: always throw it in the trunk. Beer at the stube will have to do.

    Wow, I am so glad that I could not get out of work this morning. Seems like that hassle should have been worth more than just 2 buddy passes.

    Did a couple laps on the cone before work this morning...definitely high moisture content flake. "Good for the base" as some say. Looks like half of Bend was headed up the hill.

    Be thankful you were at tower 8, not near the top where the evac rappel would be scary as fuck.

    Hah, nah man, props to those guys. They deserve a few beers, not a golden shower! One of the dudes who climbed up our tower was freaking out. He got the rope stuck in the pulleys and had to climb out to fix it. Didnít wanna go, took him a minute to commit. He slipped on the icy cross-beam while shimmying out to it. He was clipped in, so he wasnít going very far on a fall, but still gotta be an oh shit moment.

    Pretty good chance this was the first real evac for most of the trollers today. They usually practice evac on nice days with nobody around so being on show and ice build up is a different story.

    Man. I was lined up for first chair on MHX at 7:50 and the lift and crew were in a sad shape all around. I ignored the recommendation to line up for Blue. And when it became apparent that MHX was not going to spin on time I pulled the ripcord and sessioned sleazy rider instead. Good choices were made all around.

    I did get the opening of MHX and it was pretty nice. I just wish they would have adjusted or planned a little better today. But I'm willing to cut some slack because it's the beginning of the season, and the crews are fresh.
