    Some of us skirted the broken lifts and had fun nonetheless. However, Dweebus def had a rough day. On top of broken transport hardware I heard stories of water outages and a 30 minute ladies room line (what was happening in there if there was no water?). Eww.

    There was something also amiss with the water treatment plant above lot B as lot A had the distinct aroma of whatI can only imagine might have been the smell of Ernest Borgnine's ass on a really bad day.

    On this day, February 24, in 1994, the Crystal Mountain ski resort in Washington State recorded 65 inches of snow in a 24 hour period, the state record for 24 hour snowfall.

    "If you're not first, you're last." As someone who was there for the first and stayed til the last, it was definitely something. 10 laps today: 1 up top, 9 top-to-bottom, 8 of them out the gates. Far from mediocre

    remember that day vividly.

    Naive high school kid thinking epic deepness only to get beat down but unrelenting depths of the heaviest wet gaunch. there was a lot of tailgunning on my ol Sally Superforce 9s.

    I skied the day after and still hit rocks on High Campbell
    I have a responsibility to not be intimidated and bullied by low life losers who abuse what little power is granted to them as ski patrollers.

    Night turns at Alpy were gooooooood tonight. Soft sugar stashes were everywhere. 12 year old fell asleep in the car before the Denny Creek exit.

    The east wind can be a blessing, but it can also be a curse

    So good tonight. My 16yo and I lapped it non stop from 6:30 to last chair. Soft, fun snow all night long regardless of what the precipitation was doing. We were on the hunt for jumps and found plenty of fun things to jump off on the lower mountain. Was working on my back scratcher and daffy form.

    Hope it was good for the morning shift. I wanted to get up there, but work kept me down in Seattle. Hopefully it wasn't a powder tech junk show.

    Is the scratchy crust pretty much gone?

    We got there too late to get to the upper mountain, but I only felt a couple scratchy spots at the top of Dom and near the high traffic bumps under the chair before the final pitch on Armstrong. Everywhere else was skiing smooth. I didn't ski Ingrid's since my son doesn't like that run. My guess the top bumps there are still scratchy since they always are.

    There was maybe 5-6" new since close Sunday, all heavy granulated high density sugar. Bouyant and bouncy and unsinkable, no ice to be felt.
    New snow, not pow.
    Move upside and let the man go through...

    Soft piles all over the lower mountain, but definitely not pow. Fast, fun snow. Sounds like the freezing rain didn't stick around much last night (and it had no impact on the snow before 10pm) so it should be skiing pretty well today.

    The freezing rain was more of a Hyak specialty... And it's since turned to regular rain, fog and general dampness. Yesterday was a real treat and a great day to be sidelined from work by SARS (Sunny Alpental Radness Syndrome)

    High temps and sunbreaks at the Hi2 today. Thin crusts, heavy shmoo and general mankiness today. Bleh.

    Sweet Ullr.
    Two thoughts: if I ran across those personally Id buy them without a second thought, even though Ive got a pair of Dayglosivs Ill never be able to kill. Too bad Im aaaalllll the way over in Leavenworth.

    Second, maybe its the photo, but damn Id move those binders forward a few cm. Or maybe put some sths on there.

    You ever make it over to the east side?

    Thanks for the heads-up. Always wanted a pair of 180cm to go with my 190cm.

    Time to get these Markers off and get some Salomons on these.

    Sweet, glad you grabbed them. I've got minty 190s in the basement and just can't bring home more skis. That marker mount is ridiculous!
