    Snow in the PNW 2019-20

    Good debris reset at Alpy today, pretty much erased the frozen death chunk below it. The firm ice layer is still there especially on any pitch that shed (which was damn near every aspect). Wet and heavy hot pow, turned into gorilla snot on the last 500' of vertical.

    The hose is on.
    Sploosh!

    Not so according to my sources.

    In any event all are safe and well.

    It would still be extremely bad form to ask for any refund due to the closure though.

    I usually file a chargeback on my credit card when the skiing sucks

    Goodlord, I just looked at the NWAC forecast, 5~6k freezing level, 5" or more of precip (read rain) between now and Friday.

    Glad to hear that rumor was unfounded.

    Just don't forget your personal floatation device, you know, in the likely event of a water landing.

    Wonder if I’ll get my pass refund I requested due to the weather?

    I'm going to wait until mid April, but will continue documenting the traffic and weather issues to bolster my case.

    Kinda bummed I didn't ride the padded seats this morning, but way less bummed to have not high-centered my Subie in the rain trying to do so. Getting home last night after spinning laps and hanging out with some friends was a real challenge.

    I need a lift kit, I'll take this chatter to tech talk though

    The first two hours at Stevens was quite lovely,,, that is when the 1 lift that they started on was actually running...

    Fuck me sideways, their mountain ops is grossly incompetent... late openings, 7th Heaven is broke as shit, and when they did open the rest of the lifts,,, shit was sliding all over the place.. sluff (slough? slouff?) city all over...

    Is it fair to complain about both late openings and snow stability concerns? Bitch away but think about that one a bit.

    Sad to say we’re in the “bad for the base” category now.

    Yeah, this rain event is going to be bad. Real bad. We need a long cold stretch ASAP.

    I'd keep playing. I don't think the heavy stuff's going to come down for quite awhile.

    I'm flying in to Seattle tonight. Wondering if I should skip my work responsibilities tomorrow to ski Stevens? My wunderground app is showing snow but folks here are painting a much wetter picture. What should I expect?

    Am I better off just heading to Whistler for the weekend?
