    One of my favorite "Cat out the Window" maneuvers. Launching off an icy cat walk at ludicrous speed.

    Meadows closes again for wind. 2nd time this year

    Update at 8:25. Way too late to do any good. We bailed last night, luckily

    I checked their web site at 6:45 then 8:30. Anyone know when they chose to not open?

    Does anyone know if the north sister has enough snow to ski the good morning couloir?

    Can’t decide if I am going to ride Little Pine or Sunrise. Maybe hit up the magic carpet. Calm down wind. Let us ski please!

    It does seem a bit worse than the last few years. I have had a bunch of close calls over there the last few weeks. Although, it is a humongous pile of mixed gravel and boulders.

    Nearly saw a snowboarder wearing headphones get beaned by a 40 mph bowling ball. I pulled over to let it pass -yelling rock and pointing at it when I saw his intended track. He kept traversing right into its path. Never even saw it.

    After the last couple shots of snow, it is going to be a total minefield of partially buried boulders on the far wall.

    Yeah I wish that email went out 10 minutes earlier. I checked right before I left Portland at 8:15. Waste of a morning.

    Bachelor beta needed!
    Looks like we're getting bageled at Mammoth for a mid May b-day trip, need to pivot... How's the snowpack holding up at Mt B and what's the prognosis for a May 14-16 trip?

    T-line parking lot was full by 8:12am today. What is this, mid-season? Was feeling lazy and left later than normal and when we got to the line at Govy, we turned around and came back home.

    LOL, woke up at my normal time. Turned off the Alarm and went back to sleep. Didn't help that one of my smoke detectors went off in the middle of the night, and I had to get a ladder out to disconnect it.

    Skibowl open noon to 2000. First weekend not there, but from the pictures it is looking like a great day.

    I hope that strong of cars fills turns around for the Skibowl parking lot and convinces Skibowl to stay open for another weekend or two.

    Snowpack was below average this year
    We’ve lost about 3’ from max
    There will be skiing mid-May. How much is the question.

    Others can disagree, but I personally don’t expect the west side will be open by then, but Summit, Pine, and Sky will likely turn.
    Maybe SRX & CCX as well - it becomes a function of snowpack, employees leaving for summer gigs and day ticket sales

    At Bach for my end of year skiing and ended up going to Hoo Doo as I got free passes from a bartender... Never been there and was so much fun... Zero lines and killer spring conditions were had all day... Def a neat little spot...

    Shit, I'm glad I'm not the only one who misread the day. I haven't been riding this season out of what in retrospect seems like an overabundance of caution, but I decided now that spring is here and people are moving to other activities, Sunday would be a good day to head up to Timberline and pick up a spring pass. I assumed there wasn't any reason to get up there particularly early; I rolled through Govy around 8:45 to find 100+ cars stacked up on 26 waiting to get up the T-line access road. At least I was able to get back to town early enough to have lunch with my folks :-\

    Fantastic week in Bend and some great turns on the hill. Good to catch up with those I knew from days past, and also great making turns with new folks. Monday morning after a week off is especially painful.

    Thanks Puma...! I wanted to connect with you and the rest of the crew but ended up having to work every morning and never made it up before 11... I was already working with an annoyed wife and did not think ditching her for a couple of hrs would be a smart move... We are leaving on Wed so at least have a few more days to ski...

    Have a great summer and will be back again next year...! I absolutely love this town but cannot believe the traffic... My how things have changed since I started coming here in 2009....!

    A wise move on the marital front. I was also navigating, but did have some fantastic windows to ride. I look forward to turns next year!

    "fantastic windows to ride." Pretty much sums up my season too.

    ^^^ Yeah, was planning on a brief corn harvesting session but that wind forecast scared me off. I'm turning into a typical MHM softy.

    +30mph wind up the run, delightful. That said at least the chairs weren't swinging sideways. The ski traffic polished the groom to a smooth finish...just right for tipping on sharp edges.
