    So I was reading the EA for the proposed expansion of Mission and the FS says that the ski area has 2080 acres currently. Iím not sure if thatís the SUP area or the ski area boundary. Iím going to ask the owner or mountain ops manager this week.

    Great stoke the last couple of pages. Iím going to have to get a better camera.

    Drawing in the whole SUP, I get 2400 acres. So their marketing number is somewhere in between. But of course this includes huge swaths that aren't really skiable even if there were lifts (south facing stuff on the backside of the ridge, flat/rolling terrain above the Bomber cliffs, etc.)
    black line again, and surely I didn't draw it perfectly, but it's not 20% off:

    That outline is accurate based on the map I was looking at of the current SUP in the FS EA of the proposed expansion. Maybe the app isnít that accurate? Itís roughly 3.75 sections so 2400 acres seems accurate.

    It's pretty rad.

    When I was there last there were instructors instructing new instructors, one of them cautiously pizza'ing their way down skyline. Super confidence-inspiring.

    Iím not into PSIA dogma, but they have to demonstrate those techniques in their clinics. The NW region headquarters is in Wenatchee now and I see those dorks all the time. Theyíll spend a whole day demonstrating side slipping, wedge and stem turns. It looks painfully boring.

    Here's a question for Baker locals: what kind of wind does it take to shut things down? I got skunked earlier this year during a storm w/ gusts to 45. Tuesday shaping up to be wicked w gusts to 40. Odds of a closure?

    Saturday was pretty damn good at xtal. King laps in the sun with good snow followed by a storm blowing in crazy fast.

    No clue, but I do know Baker does not refund lift tickets due to weather, just fyi.
    90% of skiing is just looking cool

    I know this is what their waiver and website says, but I have in fact got a refund from Baker due to weather. It was a total closure, issued 30 minutes after opening.

    Everybody loves skiing over 50 separate traverses because people couldn't drop in from the top.

    Top two pics are my buddy on his 184 Praxis FRDs, bottom one is me and I'm on my old 177 Katanas. Deep days I was on my Protests, though, and you were right--LOVE them.

    People are either too scared or lazy to hike to the top. Instead they traverse under people skiing off the top and make sweet traverse lines to blow you up and lose 99% of their vert without making any good turns.
    Itís what happens when you donít require gear to go out of southback and people who have no business leaving a groomer go exploring since they see other people going that way.
    Southback on Saturday was the biggest gong show of literally a pack of women in their 60s on rental gear asking if it would get easier if they kept going further out and people on rental skis. A 5 min section took 30+ min at one point.

    the ikonic traverses of crystal mountain.

    It literally takes 12 more minutes to walk to the top if you're fat and out of shape and not cut a track which looses close to 200 vertical feet across the entire avalanche basin so they can ski a different 160 vertical feet down to Elizabeth lake, which requires them to ski down to C9 instead of take the quick cut back to C6. It makes no sense.
