    Takes one to know one, Brit.

    Has everyone already forgotten about Dec. 2015 when the power was out for a week, I-90 was closed more than it was open and it snowed 9 feet in 7 days? Seems so

    Comparatively speaking the folks in GW have it worse by a long shot.

    Iím not positive, but I think he was referring to the folks having to cook over fire and deal with power outages, not property damage. No of us here are immune to being douchey.

    My dad apparently can ski switch on tele skis, so that counts for something

    And I wasn't referring to the property damage and overall mess, but rather the whole whiny, "We got trapped here without power and our food was going bad and we had to cook over a fire" line from the person the news interviewed.

    Power's out? Put your food in a cooler. It's not winter? Put the cooler in the creek. Cooking over a fire? Sounds nice. Some of my best life experiences have been being stranded somewhere for days. Really builds character and community. Sorry to pee on your umbrella, Brit, I hope things are okay around your place and you get the assistance you need

    As far as I know from friends checking on it my place is fine, thanks.

    Plenty in my neighborhood are pretty badly damaged though.

    But some concern for others is always appreciated from the lofty moral highlands of the padded seats.

    Even if it comes with an umbrella joke...

    In reality, if you can ice skate or roller skate backwards you can make tele turns backwards.

    I agree, props to BC and his colleagues. And everyone should have the patrol number saved on their phone 360-300-7070

    I don't know how well you know Baker, but that guy was in the wrong place at the wrong time, yet in one of the better places in terms of being seen. Hemispheres is sandwiched between the two inbounds areas. It's a giant terrain trap, so patrol does control work in mornings, and there are eyes on it all day from the Pan Dome side.

    The gate is by the top of chair 8 patrol shack, so everyone leaving the area there has ridden the chair, and they're all going to re-enter the inbounds below The Elbow on the chair 5 side or one of the many lines into Razor Hone Creek aka The Canyon, which itself is inbounds.

    There is a common denominator there...

    In a nutshell, yes. We do avalanche mitigation to try and ensure the safety of the inbounds riders below, not ensure the safety of the backcountry, out of ski area, skiers above. How those are different is up to your interpretation. The canyon had just opened, and our patrol director was nearby watching the entire area, and two of our pro staff were in perfect position to respond.

    I hope Greenwater gets cleaned up and its fridges powered. Trying to live daily life in wet mess with out regular amenities can be rough and not quite the carefree campfire lock in from your youth. I grew up dealing with aftermaths from hurricanes, and it wasnt quite as fun for my parents as it was for me.

    Anyway, I'll be raising the umbrella on Thursday. I've been finishing my restoration on the on3p jmos I picked up. Its interesting skiing a R/C/R ski compared to the directional one I'm used to. I was worried about the tail rocker, but I actually like how the tail cuts out.

    I love Baker and I ski it all the time with my friends in Bham, but it does have a track record of being sketchy...

    Every once in awhile it's good to be a local who isn't employed by the mtn

    Yeah, that was a serious wtf. Also what's up with the lack of forecast for the east side of the south cascades?

    When you drop a large cornice all bets are off and I doubt there's all that much correlation between avi conditions and cornice stability. Similar event triggered the 30'?! deep slide on Ruby Mtn a couple years back.
