    Thanks for the insights bb and djongo.

    Will be in IF so that puts JH closest, but also BS and SLC within that 3hr bubble. Stoked out of my mind for this winter.

    Thanks, Abe. That's awesome. I'd like very much to visit and ski the Sweet Alpy with you and the crew again. I shall put maximum effort into being ready for the shindig.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    EoB- didn't I close the season skiing with you guys? Damn, I was bumming about my knee.
    We'll plan on seeing you this winter, couch surfing...look into those local ski discount cards for the ghee, KC and maybe Pebble too.
    Good skiing between the big boyz around here.
    About 3 hrs to Butte too, so all those areas around there, SW MT has great skiing fo sho.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Having second thoughts on pass choice. Can't be chincy with your passion.
    Maybe this year they'll cut out the waffles at the summit. Make them at Casper.

    Iím getting the Grand, donít need the rest of the perks, and half off tickets if I travel works for me. I second what BBear said about traveling once the snow falls, most of us just donít.

    It’s like signing up for a cell phone. Too many options.

    Full pass. No black out dates. No ikon. Seemed to be the way to go.

    ok ya if youíre going to be in IF then I think get the ikon add on bc itís under 3 hours to SLC and those ski areas are all excellent to check out. especially since youíre still in exploration mode.

    in other news I saw a suburban/tahoe limousine as I drove by the car dealership today. Iím usually a cup half full person but I think that might be the signal the demise

    ^^ Hey, the snow will still fall in JH and youíll forget about the bad juju from the healing crystal as soon as you get one of those turns, eh?

    Thanks TFT... that was the nudge I needed.

    I'm going in first thing in the morning and buying the full boat.

    $1530, about $45 more than last year.
    For everyday at the village and anyplace on the ikoniker, I don't think a ski bum could do better dollar for dollar.

    Last winter was pretty good for me considering being on the rebound, as it were. I am really looking forward to some real turns this year. With lotsa ski buds...

    People make fun of the goat path.
    But itís the easiest best skiing in North America.

    Tram lines suck. But you can always do a three chair loop for fun freshies

    Only on the most avy prone, sketchball days will I turn around on the main vein.
    Hell, the riskiest around are skiing GC on days rated like this.

    Besides, it's got a trgz approval on the daily sheet, just left of the High sign.

    GC is titty balls

    The Teton lift is mind blowing

    But my friends hate the exit. I don’t mind it.
    Pay now or pay later.

    Oh shoot! I forgot to say thanks to you to B-Bear as well! My bad.

    I'm going to get my kiddo up to Jxn at some point for sure but right now all I can thhink about is how I'm going to spend more time in Taos and Santa Fe. New Mexico has me hooked!

    I had skied quite a bit in GC around the turn of the century but long, one sided traverses like that F up my hips badly these days. My hip joint pains might have something to do with years of hucking I imagine.

    I guess I'm paying later for all the fun I had in my 20's and 30's.

    Well, I did it. Plunked down the 40% for a Rendezvous Peak Pass.

    Didn't think I was going to do it. But it's days like these

    that have me hoping beyond hope that somehow there is going to be a ski season.

    ^^^^Yep, me too. Thought twice about going lighter.

    Just doesn't make sense for me. As much as I tried to rationalize it, it's not THAT much money in the first place.
    Honestly the Rpeak pass may still be the best deal in skiing. Everyday at the Villy and access to ikon base resort days. What's better?
    -220 - I remember us talking about this topic in the hut in RS last year. good call, what about your bros? Today is the last day for spring prices...
    Gonna be a weird season, hope it turns out to be great.

    Yea, good times skiing with you DJ and hangin' down at 420 electric avenue.

    Bro Bill went full Ikon. Full credit if not used and doesn't have the time like I do.
    Although if this Rat Flu shit doesn't abate soon he may not have a business any longer. Ron been stuck in Cali. No way out. He's probly been enjoying his time surfing.

    Two employees tested positive. SRB voluntarily chose to close temporarily for a deep disinfecting. No official shutdown. Beer will flow. Cans for a few days...that is all.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    I went and picked up my season pass today. It's good to have something to look forward to. It may be good, may be shite, who knows? Doesn't matter though. Any season in JH is spatial.
    Fucking winter storms, I love 'em. Can't wait. 5AM weather checks online. Snowblower. Tramline stoke. Adrenaline POW laps. Safety. Chunder laps. Safety. Friends...

    Took a ganjala lap today on the new pass: beautiful, green, chubby deer, fresh skiff, Flurries at 8500ft., Patches of snow abound.

    No word yet about how the box is gonna work this winter, if at all. Maybe just for serving JHSP. worker guys confirmed they're waiting to hear. Wonder how many old timers will be gone next year. Heard it's a lot.
    Hopefully, if they open the tram, they'll cut out the waffles and sightseeing altogether. Maybe actually require one to be an expert skier or no box baby. Maybe no kids. Except the expert kids. Less of them than the Wilson cackler's guild would have you believe.

    Defund the Ski Police. No more speed cop yellow jackets for a while. They just crowd the slope and pick on the expert kids and the couched adult who actually stops.

    Skiing the village will be a bit more of a challenge. It's always been a chess game here but now it's on. Gonna be a chess Match going on. Kasparov99 level shit.



    I would like to ski Squaw, Maybe not this go 'round.

    Nice stoke, Djongo! Always appreciate a good chess match. Would be amazing to get back to JH and see some of these ideas in play.

    DJ, Sad to hear of the Covid cases, we like the beer, even over the pass . We had the pleasure of riding our road bikes thru the neighborhoods on your splendid bike trails, JH seems to have a real drift boat problem! Not a bad problem to have. Things will be up in the air for some time, if the shit settles come on over for a day at the ' Ghee or? Be well and fish on!!
