    Here's to hoping a glaze of freezing ran just above ground level will, somehow, be good for the base

    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.

    I normally prefer to wax my base with hoar frost. Works great, especially for spring skiing

    How was the road to the trailhead? I heard that it turned a few people around from ice about 4 miles from the TH.

    If rain is good for the base then freezing rain should be 2X better.
    Forecast is looking better starting next tuesday/wednesday... Believe!

    Just think how epic the next 4-5 months will be if we end up with an average snow/water year!

    Disregard my earlier post about freezing rain... the temp spiked 10F overnight and it's all a wash now.

    Hoping beyond hope for a good dump later next week, but it's too early to tell. The 10-day forecast looks a lot of wet at base level, with some significant white at the top, and a drying trend into next week. At this point, I'd think a limited opening date of the 14th for Stevens & Baker is questionable but I'd love to be wrong about that.

    I have a 10am dentist appt on the 17th, so it's likely it will nuke right around then to really mess that up. My gut says West on the 20th & Acres on the 21st with Alpental sometime before New Year's Eve and Hyak in January before another frustrating dry-out but then a potentially all-time February & March. Just a hunch...

    I wish this season were more like 16/17. I'm no local now, but just looking at snowpack levels and having been here for that season *wink*, it was probably one of the better ones in the past 10 years.

    New at Mt Dweebus!

    https://www.crystalmountainresort.co...hats-new-19-20

    Good:

    12 more gondi cabins maxes out capacity, ticket kiosks in lots B and C, extra shuttle truck.

    Bad:

    Designated snowshoe trails in Bullion basin. Uh, fuck.



    The trail corridor is narrow and already sees doe-eyed uphillers diving out of the way of skiers descending.

    Now it'll be choked with 3-abreast retard snowshoers wandering off the designated routes to chew up every skintrack they see, inadvertently getting into avalanche terrain and generally crowding the place.

    Improvements by survey: sacrifice some of your limited recreation allotment to fill out this survey because if you don't, jerry the snowshoer will!

    Hey now, snowshoeing on those groomed hiking trails is so much nicer than walking in that fresh powder snow in the woods

    You couldn't be more correct.
    There will now be a trail from Twisp to Winthrop that nobody will use because of a survey. The questions were phrased in such a way as to make it almost impossible to say you didn't want it. Meanwhile, the Winthrop trailhead typically gets barely enough snow to be the skiing trailhead, yet there will somehow be enough snow on this lower elevation trail.
    Snowshoers, (mostly rental), now are the #1 trailhead user at the Snoqualmie trailheads, and it's growing.

    For the record, they aren't limiting themselves to trailheads.
    I've nearly skied over several hiking up the Elevator side country zone at Alpental (more than once).

    These sound pleasant
    TERRAIN BASED LEARNING

    As part of our effort to increase the beginner experience, we're also adding Terrain Based Learning which uses shaped snow to aid in learning the basics on-snow.

    DIGITAL INTERACTIONS

    We added self registration stations in the rental shop and snowsports sales office, this will help streamline the information gathering process and reduce data entry errors. It will also push your rental equipment information to the relevant staff so they can prepare your equipment for you ahead of time. Saving you time and optimizing our processes.

    Mission Ridge are doing a $99 ticket that allows you to ski every day its open until Christmas day. Only available until midnight on 12/05 though.

    Decent deal for getting some weekend turns whilst waiting to use my season pass at Snoqualmie.
