    Anybody else like Shaggys? I just got my Ahmeek 105 custom 180cm. Griffon Bindings mounted. I will be at Mount Bohemia in a cabin next month for a few days during the week. I have never been there. Got the season pass. I got a day in the Snowcat on Wednesday the 16th. Could be fun. Anyone else gonna be up there? Full Moon.

    Finally got out to the Nut for the first time this season on Sunday Was looking for ugly money but no luxj and never saw your car so assume you weren't there.

    Conditions were fast and hard and fun. Skied the UP a few weeks ago in and after 25" of fresh dry powder. That was pretty epic for any standards let alone Midwest. Coming to Chestnut was back to fast and hard Midwest carving. Always fun.

    Disappointed that the fire pit and bottom bar area isn't running this season, hopefully next.

    Also my first year not being a pass holder in a long time as travel sports kicking into gear in winter. I still plan to get there at least 3-4 more days this year.

    Fingers crossed for a weekday 8"+ cold snow dumping this season, generally get one of these every other year I'd say. Nothing in the 10 day, maybe February.

    Mother Earth! I just saw that White Wolf Sticker. I worked there from about 1983 to 1993. Good times!

    Sitting here drooling over those cheesesteaks, BaconMeCrazy. Nothing makes me happier than ski area parking lot tailgating, unfortunately I don't think i could but produce a Mountain House beef stroganoff and a session IPA. Peppers on the griddle is dedication.

    Dedication on the menu is above and beyond at the Vil' with this crew. I haven't eaten better at any ski area - even the ones with "names"!!

    I've got some 2016 era tubby 120s in 168. I like them a lot but I'll still rock my salomon rocker 2s almost any day. As far as bohemia, even though it's gladed I find I have the most fun on the open runs - the showtime run right under the triple chair and The Beast on the skiers right of the double. There are certain tree areas I like such as black hole area and ebc skiers right of the beast...especially if the snow is right. Midweek is always a good time to hit the place just because lines generally don't exist. Saturdays are a party and a different story, of course. I'll be in the UP the weekend beforehand but mostly to race my fat bike in the Polar Roll.

    I am pretty pissed at Wilmot being fucked by the long dick of Vail resorts currently. They aren't even gonna open stateline, chair 5, and probably the big park stuff this year. It also used to stay open til 11, now it's 9...except, it's still 8 through this weekend at least and I bet they don't change that. Plenty of lifties working so I don't think that's the issue. Seems like fraud to say you have certain hours, get that season pass money and then change the hours....

    *edit* I'll be there Friday. tan/blue/maroon one piece, salomon rocker2s

    I know I was counting on the Wilmot terrain park since I'm in Chicago and have the epic pass. And to me it seemed like they had an excessive number of employees there.

    Have not been but I will give my opinion anyways. It looks like it isn't as steep as what I usually like to ski. I'd still probably enjoy it but I like to get into stuff steep enough to worry, usually.

    check it out on google earth approximately 47*27'14"N 88*01'28"W

    From all accounts voodoo is fairly mellow. Novelty factor is high. Pray that the lake effect machine keeps spinning and HMU if any of y’all head to MQT or Ripley.
    focus.

    Where is that food at ? Welch Village ? Makes me hungry as a mofo looking at those pics. Damn. I need to meet you d00ds.

    Friday was mellow at Christie Mountain. -12F temp kept most people away, but 3 school buses showed up about 11am. Those kids mostly stuck to the park or hung out in the lodge, slopes were empty.

    Saturday woke up to fresh POW !

    About an inch at home, driving to the Blue Hills gradually increased to 3, and by the time I pulled in the parking lot it was a legit 4 inches. Excellent. It fell on already groomed runs, they did re-groom the beginner runs, but left the fun stuff ungroomed.

    I Like your travels, Harry -
    Thank you for your reports.

    Tough deal for a Packer fan tonight...
    ( thinking of your Mom. )

    I hope things will work out for March.

    ( did you get those skis remounted last week (?) )


    carry on... skiJ

    Taking today off, Harry, but any time you want to go to Welch, let me know! I’ll introduce you to the crew!

    I think they’re Indy Passing it this weekend - the lot scene was pretty quiet yesterday…

    Assume that is 17 customers + guide(s)? Is that a big group cat-wise? Only went on one cat trip and that was 12 + guides.

    website says "20 passenger cab"

    so that would be, 'yes - something like that. '


    have fun... skiJ

    Great day on Sunday. Christie Mountain got another inch overnight. Everything real soft, perfect corduroy, trench city. Hot laps all day.

    Voodo is kind of a novelty, I reckon. I am just doing it to hang out and meet people. If I am driving my ass up there, it is worth it. I have a cabin for 3 nights. I met Lonnie a long time ago. I did alot of snowcat skiing at Steamboat with Kevo. Did 4 weeks with CMH. most of my friends are gone. I was at Mount Bailey in Oregon with Rick Oswald. He died there. Ozzy. I just want to keep skiing, and help people, it is what I do. If you have any questions, just ask. I am an open book.

    Between the cold and the Packers getting humiliated, the place was a ghost town.
