    It was pretty nice. It stayed cold last night and they got a little more snow overnight. They also opened vista and there was plenty of fresh snow up there.

    Kid said it was good. I didn't make it out today. Had to go down to parkdale to pick up skis and get bootfitting. Looked pretty good. I'll take the lid off my season in the morning.

    The storm cycle last week definitely underdelivered to forecast on the central passes ... I'm sorry to report that the snow coverage there is still pretty piss poor (Mt B doesn't count, bottom of PMX is a good 1600' above Santiam Pass). Obviously, the webcams show this.

    From a waxless / XC standpoint, Ray Benson has just enough snow to be skiable with some adventure sidestepping over logs rocks and swamps ... it must have really warmed up over the last 2 weeks because there is still unfrozen swamp water running on top of a lot of the logging roads to the area. South Loop had just enough snow to be skiable. Hoodoo still has lots of reeds and manzanita poking through everything.

    Willamette looked like it's doing even worse.

    I'm gonna go ahead and give myself the anti-jinx now and just expect rain at pass levels when this next system (AR) hits at the end of the week.

    ^^^That looks kind of awesome


    I decided to stay home and preserve the back. I did a little too much Sat and made a last second call. The boy was not happy, but we’ll get there soon enough.

    It's gonna be a close call and it ain't been decided yet. Maybe it's worth making my first weather video of the year. Definitely an exciting or terrifying weather pattern coming through. 5+ inches of rain in 4 days in much of the valley. Just hoping we get some good base builder out of it. 'T'ain't gonna be pow.

    Yeah the video is moot at this point and would only be depressing. Hopefully the forecast models, which are all eerily in agreement, are completely wrong about multiple inches of rain, even at elevation. They've been wrong in these cases before, especially in early season, so there's hope... Just not a whole lot of it.

    Yes yes, I know... Shut my dirty whore mouth.

    Meanwhile a bit further north they're calling for anywhere between 1-3 FEET with the highest amounts centering around the only ski area in the Cascades that's yet to begin operating

    Friday at Mt B looks to be special...

    "The first 50 Subaru’s enjoy VIP parking (it’s looking like it’ll be a pow day!) in the upper Sunrise lot. Be one of the first 100 in line for First Chair and get a FREE breakfast burrito, courtesy of Yeti and Mt. Bachelor. "

    Great, I usually get there about 0815 and am probably the 20th vehicle in the lot, Subie or otherwise.

    "...The first 25 guests to order a Sunrise Bloody at the Sun Bar starting at 1:30 p.m. will be enjoying sipping out of FREE Yeti."

    DO NOT get between Jonesy and the Sun Bar after 1300pst. Injury may result
    Wonder how big a Yeti cooler you get with the BM?

    And with all that, Thursday looks to be better conditions...

    The wind is already starting to pickup here in Welches. The wife said wind up at Timberline was getting stronger when she got to work earlier this morning.
