The guys seem to indicate they learned some of those lessons, so let's hope it doesn't happen again.

    thanks for sharing that. good on them for posting it and being (hopefully) able to take some learnings from it.

    First few laps were pretty quiet.

    Nice job. I’m too predictable I guess. I’m gonna tail you next time! Nobody but myself, early ski patroller, and then a snowboarder after I’d done six laps. I think I did eight total. I’m in the clouds right now.

    It was fun watching the farm progress on the chair ride up.
    Common sense. So rare today in America it's almost like having a superpower.

    Some deep turns and face shots this morning at Xtal. Made the wait for REX to pop worth it.

    Today at Crystal was awesome, aside from the new-normal Friday crowds that are only a shade off of Saturday crowds.

    Total shit show in the morning with the whole upper mountain closed due to wind, the Chinook like was halfway to Quicksilver so I just rode Disco up to Quicksilver and made my way to FQ. On my way out of my second lap through lower Bear Pits, which seemed like the best thing going some guy nearly fell into a 10' hole on the right side that had lost its bamboo marker poles. I skipped Rex and just lolled around on FQ and then waited in the Chair Six line for that to openÖ when it did, it was epic. Got three quick, no hike laps in with moderate (i.e. "bad" in the old days) lines before they exploded, then hiked out to Throne a bunch of times. A-basin never opened, it should be unbelievable when it does (it hasn't been open all week), though I suspect the weekend crowds will make quick work of it.

    Here's some pics

    Spot on Ptavv on today. However, A-Basin did crack at about 1:50 on Wednesday and that was enough time for two bottomless laps on toaster and appliances. Photo evidence is attached although it’s sideways..

    Oh yah, I forgot about that because I'd already bailed. There was definitely no visible evidence it'd been open all week today though.

    What was more interesting was that Stevens had to use Yodelin as an overflow lot. When I went up there for a lap, there were a couple people in the lot who had to drive around to blewett /snoqualmie to get back

    Pass reopened at 5. Just enough time to get warm and drink a few brewskis after shredding untracked all day. The parking clusterfuck is due to them not plowing the lots properly. They've lost 50% of the parking area from not having anyone smart enough to run the dumper. Par for the course at this point. I kinda like the shit show aspect of it all. Thankfully we've had 2 whole days in a row where they got the upper mountain open in a semi appropriate manner. Although I'm still not sure how many patrollers it takes to shovel a path....Click image for larger version.

    I was thinking a dumper might be a front end loader.

    *insert yo mamma joke here*....

    You know the scooper dumper to scoop and dump. Then there's a big ol grinder that carves the banks and a big wheel flattener to smooth things out. C'mon bruh! Take that shit to tech talk

    Xtal was skiing so good yesterday. And the lines were so awful. Hard to decide if it's worth it. Kinda bummed on the whole thing RN. 5 (some short FQ) laps in 4 hours. minimum 20 minute line every time, one was 45. Fuck me.

    Chill bite squall hunker, lines gargantua but managed 10th Chinook chair. Was up @ 4:18 to get there, in line @ 7:15.
    Wind and control hold Rex, so rolled ForestQueen for a few of laps of good stupid with some kids and their mom.
    Went back to check REX and saw the biggest line of all of my 46 years at Crustal.
    Fuck that. I mourn the passing of the best. It was so out of the limelight for so long and fit so well.

    Gomered a Quicksilver lap, back to Chinook, loop that while gawking at a tumescent pr0nstar Rex line.
    Rolled 5 Chinook laps, then decided to scope out 6.
    Interminable FQ wait, unload, crested knob to see 6 starting to load with a relatively small line within the stanchions, so bolted there.
    By the time I loaded 6, line snaked halfway across the flats.

    A choice for 1 lap on 6, most going Powder Bowl, I turned perpendicular to zip over to Frisco Trees.
    A few top tracks, then the windows down opened up in pitched, untracked galleries, perfect sw00ps between the bunching gnarlers.
    Perfect. One perfect railer stomped.

    Back to Rex, line still massive but becoming more flaccid, so I suck it up and wait.
    The frontside skied great, 4 cycles before coming across that mom and kids whom I led out to Northway.

    Skiing with kids is my antidote for powder panic, for the emptiness I've felt, for missing the ways things used to be with friends and the shared experiences.
    Stood in Paradise bowl and played tail guide while their little legs ground out turns in the deep.

    Then back to the frontside, Rex line still out past the stanchions at 3 fucking o'clock.
    Burned 3 more soft chop frontsides and felt spent. Time to wallow back down to the moist mosses.

    The last week has been the best powder skiing I've done around the PNW in some time. Monday and Tuesday in particular. It's oddly nice to point out PMgear in lines and not be recognized anymore.

    Friday was such a shit show crowds wise. It would be nice if Alterra were held accountable by the electorate for their abuse of the Comfortable Carry Capacity and the Public Trust about which the Forest Service make such d00d00. By The People, motherfuckers.

    Anyone hear about someone getting partially buried on the edge of hyland bowl yesterday? They closed the ridge out that way because of it I believe.

    This winter has been excellent Click image for larger version.
