    Snow was a little overcooked, but soft. Got very heavy and found out my Protests need a little more detuning, and my DINs need cranking (thanks ACH haha).

    Shout out to ACH and Baker Bob for looking out for myself and the other guys in the first row earlier this morning. Its a shame folks like that douchenozzle are around, but very heartening to know there are good folks like you two around as well.

    Was worried that would be the case. Was thinking of heading up for a night session. Would it be worth it?

    Took this pic circa 10:15am. Dude didn't even know when the ski area opened nor had any real sense of when he should've been there

    My experience is it got in the way and held him back. Sample of one so you may get better mileage. Congrats and hope to see you guys up there.

    Common sense. So rare today in America it's almost like having a superpower.

    Fullstack and I, left from my place at 6, and arrived no later than 7:15, with the lux of A lot parking. The atmosphere was electric, and you got to see a collection of motived/dedicated skiers. The lift rides always had some good conversations, so the stoke torch was held high.

    The first run I stuck to the edge of Middle Ferks for certainly the longest untracked pow run of my life. Quickly the major trails became tracked, but the snow was soft and light enough initially that the chop still gave way as I charged through it. There were scraps still to be had late in the day. With the delayed opening of Northway, that brought more untracked lines while the mountain became a ghost town.

    By the end of the day the lower mountain predictably became heavy and wet, but the snow on the upper mountain remained soft and maneuverable. Wish it was a little cooler, but cant complain on a powder day like this.

    No real good pic as my mind was stuck in the snow.

    Super glad to go on a weekday. I can ski whenever I catch a ride for the most part, weekdays included.

    What the fuck is a stock torch?

    It was a killer day though.

    I hate typing on the damn phone. Typing while cooking dinner certainly did not help. Typos fixed. Now we can get on with the ski stoke.

    Snow was super weird today at Crustal.

    It was deep, dense (duh), and also weirdly slow. Could just point yourself down hill and not worry too much. Double 00 laps were the best and stayed great well after chair 6 opened. Powder Bowl was fine except that Bear Pits on down was skiing for exercise, not joy.

    Northway was even more dense than Chair 6 and much more stuff had slid when patrol did their work and the bottom half was the same heavy gloppy potatoes as Bear Pits.

    Super fun day tho!

    You know, I've been thinking and in my mind it's obvious the best improvement for the padded seats experience would be a giant umbrella they can crank open for the first few chairs of people lined-up to wait beneath

    Yesterday at the southern hill did not disappoint. Lower mountain great until about 10, upper mountain basically perfect the rest of the day. Ended the day with multiple laps of untracked. The run down to the bottom had some heavy funky shit though.

    "Raining" heavily outside the window of the pass-level coffee shop which is as far as I made it this morning on my way to work. Fingers-crossed this will soften last night's crust and stay on the whiter than wetter side til it shuts off this evening

    Eastern flow must still be winning at Highyak.
