    What do you mean, did it close? I’ve never seen it close on the east side ... but there are some storms that I definitely wouldn’t take Crescent Cutoff rod and would rather stay on 58/97 well south of Gilchrist.

    2019-20 - Oregon - it never snows here and when it does, it sucks

    Chopped up northwest pow sort of day
    Breezy with wet snow
    Skiing is fun but not at all like the earlier week’s conditions

    Good times. Viz wasn't the greatest up top. A bit of rime on Outback, but that's not unusual. Nice 5" or so and snowing. Nice soft turns were had.

    Lol. Ya, he's 26. Luckily I just zipped in my liner that can be used as an outer layer , with an extra base layer he's was fine until the snow went to slick snot at 12.

    Cloudchaser was good in the morning. Not deep, but soft. Love these wrens. Jonesy, get wider skis. Do just fine on the groom too!

    Looking forward to tomorrow and getting higher!

    Ugh, high temps and high snow levels are back. That was definitely a fun cycle while it lasted!

    They were short all morning, till they weren’t. Snow was fresh and deep, warm and heavy. Really nice to ski on, but entirely different than the past week. Steep HRM Trees continued to deliver the goods, with colder snow than the day’s root mean squared.

    We went up for lunch at the first sign of congestion. 100+ people walked past us on our way to the lodge, 100+ people were in line at the HRM ticket booth, 100+ people passed us on our way from the lodge to the lot, and another 100+ were schlepping up the road from the highway to the lot. Everyone was out getting theirs today.

    After lunch we decided to go check out the back side of skibowl (Outback), and when the rain started hitting the windshield, turned up the hill to Timberline. 2/3 of the way up the hill checked the weather and Bruno’s was the only lift running (about 300’ long, 15’ of vertical). At that moment the solid stream of traffic came barreling down the hill. Flipped a u-turn at the first break in traffic, and went back down. There were lines at both ends of the Skibowl main parking lot, spilled over onto the highway.

    Pandemonium!!!

    Seems like enough of you enjoyed the snow this morning for me to narrow my "issues" down to operator error, or something out of whack with my new-to-me bonafides (edges seem super sharp and not detuned at all, but not sure that's enough to explain my inability to ski today). Could go on, but that's tech talk JONG.

    Like an idiot, I didn't bring a reference ski with me this weekend.

    I’m trying to convince myself it’ll be good for base building. But you’re right: hard to beat 6ft+ of snow in 2 weeks

    Hoodoo was a crapper. Raining with alot of beaters. Apparently there have been some alcohol related incidents as well. So a new policy has been adopted. Catch my drift.

    He would be perfect for that position. His office is in the basement next to the womens lockers.

    Summit at Bachy opened today for first time all season. Unfortunately all the snow accumulated lately had a 1/2-1” layer of ice/ crust on top. On plus side, it was a bluebird day .

    Yeah...Big surprise about conditions on Summit. I left just as they were opening. People had been waiting for like an hour to get some of that.

    The carnage must have been awesome

    I wonder if the two guys I saw sporting dynafiddles and Float45 packs were there...

    But yeah, it WAS sunny...

    I know you were all waiting for an update. I detuned them and loved them today.

    Mt hood Meadows was at least twice as busy as yesterday, possibly more like 3 times in terms of lift lines. Still not a bad wait. I guess the masses are more interested in sun this year than snowfall. I swear it seems like the opposite sometimes.

    Anyway, really nice spring skiing today.
