    FS Kastle FX94 HP with Griffon

    I got up at 430 this morning, leaving the house at 545 so my wife and I could get breakfast then stop at the Enumclaw safeway for some jerky. The bus was pretty empty, so a nap was pretty easy to land. They did a decent job today, but im getting frustrated because ive yet to hear back from Crystal (Ive emailed and called). Im about to just walk in to guest services and press issue face to face.

    Nothing is going to stop me from skiing, even if that means hiking to Enumclaw and hitchhiking to crystal. A year off didnt seem to hinder my skiing, and if anything with the working out I did, im skiing at a higher level than I finished my last season. I may be a bit of jerry, but I certainly put in the work.

    After skiing Im also going roller skating with the wife. Ill be pretty much dead by the time i head home.

    Im wearing orange pants, blue onyx and orange trim hh jacket and a orange helmet, on on3p jeronimos. There is a bbi 18 sticker on my helmet as well.

    Snow in the PNW 2019-20

    Good job making the best of present circumstances Beardmech!

I would be surprised if it ran again today.

    In other news, debris everywhere (shocking, I know), some of the slide paths gouged big channels into the snowpack. I was able to get a clean run down Nash. Debris in general were softish, most but not all aspects have flushed to some extent.

    They did get it open again after you left. Took one Rolen to Gunmount run and that was enough for me. The lower mountain was well groomed by the masses for the afternoon and then they all disappeared. Ski on to the lifts all afternoon. I think a lot of lesson parents bailed after the morning deluge. It was character building for my kids. Me and my 16yo grom had a blast all day and shut the place down. What looked to be a terrible day ended up being awesome. Spring skiing in January!

    Nice creamy new snow at Mission this morning. Top was skiing in the milk jug early, didnít stick around for the blue skies later. Up high the snow was all soft. Lower down skiing was good off piste if it was smooth, dense new kept you off the crust.

    Snow conditions at the big umbrella gave a taste of everything. With the fresh layer of 3-6 inches of soft and surprisingly dry snow i managed to squeek in a handful of untracked powder runs before the snow quickly turned into nasty chunder, dust on icey crust with the dust being pushed into piles, making even blue mogul fields unappetizing. Even some of my later in the day lines hidden by the shade became shit.

    Overall, fun successful day, just sucks the previous week and the future forecast are not what i call exciting.

    Freezing rain, ice on haul rope.
    We were at the base of 2 for about 20 minutes first thing, patrol cycled through randomly and it seemed to run fine.
    It wasn't until they started loading public that enough load was put on the system (my guess) to cause it to jerk and stutter. To their credit, lift ops were on it pretty quick, they stopped loading people and ran it slow till we were all safetly off, then they shut it down until the temps came up to melt the ice off (apparently - see Phatty's post above) and re-open.

    I was on the chair with an old timer the other day. He was telling me about the really steep terrain they have at Hyak. Once you get to the top it’s skier’s right down the backside. I forget what they call it but it is the steepest inbounds run in the U.S.

    Laying the first trench down Serpentine this evening by headlamp didn't suck. Beat the rain by a handful of minutes, best of luck to anyone trying to ski at Snoqualmonix tomorrow

    When you get off east peak follow the rope high skiers right then ski down.

    I asked him if he meant Alpental. He was talking about international.

    I do find it ironic that the most renowned run at Alpental is named for a song whose message is diametrically opposed to the ideology espoused the Randian neoliberal scum that comprises such a large segment of the population of the region.

    I see they've changed the name in recent years to try to distance themselves from the reference. Sad. I'll always spell it with the "e."

    Hyak has been offering nice debris-free turns with good grooming and soft gaunch off-piste
