    Echoing RideinShockguns assessment of Alpental. We toured up to lower Shot 6 on Sunday and the skiing was good. One good 2 foot storm with some grooming to cover the creeks and Alpental will be open. Assuming that it doesn't get washed away this week

    Perhaps a bit optimistic but I wasn't implying a full opening just a limited opening. Way more snow than I thought.

    To paraphrase another mag, they dont groom at alpental, they just push shit around.

    I was talking about the lower mountain. The snark police are out in full force dissecting every detail of every post. Been skiing Alpental for 16 seasons fwiw

    This weekend is looking like it could be pretty fantastic. 50 inches by Saturday with the storm still raging.

    Sorry for the drive-by snark on my part. I am just a long-distance voyeur with a bit of nostalgic fondness for Alpental.

    Snark is encouraged, especially from someone like you with great depth of familiarity with these mountains (being serious).

    Snark went overhead a few posts up. Shrug

    I thought the wink made it abundantly clear I was joking around. Everyone knows Alpental is renowned for its velvety 'roy.

    It was kind of out of my control but Iím heading to Mt Baker for Dec 26th thru 30th from SoCal. Stoked that there is a massive storm coming before then. I donít have a dedicated pow ski so might rent one up there depending on the conditions.
