    My folks patrolled at B.P. and Snowcrest, so they put me on skis at 2. Here's a video St. Croix National G.C. put out:

    Spring skiing in December at the head of the lakes. 35f and sunny, and not crowded at all.

    Snowed all day Saturday 8-10 inches. Good coverage everywhere. Knee deep in spots but mostly shin deep. Busy in the morning but lift lines werent too bad. Late crowds caused 20-30 minute lines after lunch. Couldnt tell there was that many people when off the lift though. Skied some new-to-me Obsetheds from my cousin. I love getting his hand-me-downs even at 40. lol

    Bluebird on Sunday with an extra 4 inches and the frontside nicely filled in from the wind on Saturday night. It was tracked out early but it was soft everywhere all day. Had an awesome weekend!

    Marquette has made a huge leap forward in the last couple of weeks. Last few mornings have been bananas.

    Special thanks to SkiJ for the moral and legal support and lending the camera.

    Nice work through the trees. I'll be up at Whitecap in two weeks. Unbelievably, they are running a head-to-head glade race, single elimination style. Calling it "Glades of Glory." Apparently they have at least a couple solid skiers lined up. I'm interested to see who comes out of the Wisconsin woodwork for this, as usually the skiing is fairly mellow there.

    Had a great time up at Cascade last weekend. The snow was really good, Superbowl Sunday was without crowds. Saturday was a different story. Good skiing in the morning but by later in the day we took a few laps here and there but the lift lines were not worth it even though they actually had all the lifts running this year. We don't really have to deal with stupid lift lines at Chestnut. I do appreciate the amount of runs at Cascade though and the infrastructure improvements. Fun to move around a bit. Upper 40's Sunday though...wtf. The weather just keeps with the roller coaster.

    A few pictures of my girl racing in U12 as a bump up 9 year old (too many wins in u10). Ainsley Proffit of the US Ski Team D team showed up. She skied in our little midwest league for a couple of years before moving on. Pretty cool to watch her ski as a forerunner and we managed a picture with her and my girl/her friend. Not exactly world famous but I have followed her for a couple three years since she is from St. Louis and has the WIJARA connection so we were super stoked she showed up.

    Sage managed all top tens with a best 5th place in Slalom. 38 U12 girls in division this weekend.

    Skied Chestnut this morning and yesterday. For the first time in forever went all of January without going there...weather partially to blame as any Sun or Mon with 4"+ expected I try to get there. Prior to today it has barely snowed.

    Yesterday was about as good of weather as a skier can ask for, 29 degrees sunny and no wind. Snow quality was great, I say it often but always impressed with their ability to make fake snow feel real. At least compared to most places in WI where ice is the keyword.

    We stayed overnight expecting to wake up to 2-3" but not even a dusting. Then around 9am it started and by noon it was basically whiteout. But not the good powdery kind, it was wet and heavy and hard to see with so much sticking to goggles, etc. We made it for awhile before having to head out. Another great weekend at Chestnut.

    Will be back there next weekend (Sun/Mon), early forecast shows some snow chances. At least the GFS.

    Look me up Sunday am. We were over at Sundown this past weekend for a race. The snow on Sunday was fun!

    This was covered in saplings.
    Original thought was to snip them all. Called an audible and started shaping a slalom course.
    Totally stoked with how it turned out.
