    Yesterday was actually a lot of fun up top. Not much open, but probably for good reason. Lower mountain was dust on crust. Follow the sun for a good time.

    Why does PSE hate skiing? No new snow, no rain, no wind, not cold. This is getting ridiculous.

    Yeah, power died right about 2:00.

    Chair 2 didn't open until 1:00, but it skied decently, lower mountain was a skating rink mounded with sugar.

    No lines though.

    Yeah, good stuff. Family finally decided to head up with me. Lift stopped as we were heading to the line. PSE is painful.

    You said it better than I did.

    I guess they owe me nothing, but I feel like an explanation on what is up with these outages would be nice...

    Summit feels left out of the epic/iconic operational junkshows and decided to throw their hat in that ring?

    Current outage is another tree fall.

    A record breaking summer drought and heatwave then a record breaking 3 weeks of storms.

    What would you like PSE to do?

    Fix global warming or put all the distribution underground?

    Wtf people….

    Fixing global warming would be a good start then bury the cables.

    Learn from pg&e and start undergrounding power lines in forested/rural areas starting yesterday to account for a changing PNW climate over the coming decades.

    In the short term, I suggest logging the shit out of transmission line corridors.

    Pretty much. The climate is changing, period. Whether we sped up that change people can debate. The world is yin and yang so I’m a yes on that debate.

    Confusing what was going on at Alpental today. Drove through around 1:15 and all lots were slammed. But there was no line for Armstrong. Slopes looked empty. WTF?

    Zing!

    Good morning and happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! It looks to be another nice weather day up at the pass. While we continue to struggle with less than a Partial Supply of Energy from our local utility, we will be operating in a limited fashion today, see updates below.

    Ah. Maybe because cascade traverse was closed and that’s when 2 opened. Snow was much better up top. International was closed so lots of people lapping chair 2. Patrol was busy with all the beginner/intermediates on icy Debbie’s most of the morning so they likely shifted over to Sessel to avoid.

    I am happy to at least have global warming to blame.

    Things were pretty mellow at Hyak. Short lift lines and decent weather. I wish they could get Hidden Valley open but maybe they just don't have the staff for it this season? We made morning laps with the kiddos, then stopped for a long lunch of grilled dogs and brats in the parking lot. Came back for the afternoon session just as the power went out. So far, that's 3 of my 5 lift served ski days affected by power outages. Shit happens but this seems like it's kind of ridiculous.

    Anyway, a nice mellow Sunday regardless.

    Friday night was busy every lot nearly full dodos parking on the road but glad to snag a few laps with my babykooksrusgapers go marching one by onebogeys everywheresessel slayerhangfirebig moonbraaaaapbuenas vistasgreat peeps


    Bunch of sissys and whiny butts in this thread. Yes the power went out but I'm kind of a fan of it when 95 percent of the skiers(bogeys) bail and you get Armstrong to yourself. For those saying they should run the power underground you do realize that we're talking about underground utilities in the mountains have fun digging through granite. Which one of you are gonna step up and pay for relocation of all the lines? Show up pay your nickel and be grateful for what you get.

    FWIW, PSE will go as low as 2' cover for transmission lines, if necessary. Which will work just fine going through the cascades.

    Reason I say underground now, is looking a few states south at PG&E and all the fires caused by overhead lines, and now constant service blackouts during fire season to mitigate risk. Now they are expediting undergrounding their whole at risk network costing way more than if they had made along term plan to do so.


    All that said, I was mostly being tongue in cheek, and I look at power outages the same way I look at driving up on 50/50 rain/snow days. Pay your nickel and take your chances. NBD if you turn back around, it's less than an hour driving one-way foremost of us.

    It was PSE mining thru the Denny granite to run transmission lines.
