    I'm wondering if they could use dog sleds to shuttle people between the base of Skyliner to West or Sunshine Village? I mean using a shuttle bus doesn't seem like a good idea based on how jacked up the parking and traffic situation is these days.

    Sad to hear Skyliner down for the count. I was truly hoping that a stick of gum, bailing wire and elbow grease could have fixed it. At worst some good old fashioned welding and hammering to get her spinning.

    For the ski off, just one simple request; Double front facing and back facing helmet Go Pros to capture the action. Thanks!

    Thanks. It's the set of tracks in the middle. Got a few tips from the poacher. You meet him last time we skied together. Made laps with dad and he bought beer!

    A day of fast skiing around movable gates, laughs and wonder at MtB

    Jonesy slaying the crust on old Rainbow with his new crud skis. Yes they are red.

    Sorry TFT only railroad track photos are from Jonesy using his Bigfoot filter

    People were lining up at 0915 for first tracks on Summit. I think it started spinning about 1130

    At about 1045 Jonesy and I boarded Sunrise as singles as we traversed to sustenance at Clearing Rock. I was riding with a threesome of two adults and a young one between them.
    The load did not go well. Kid slid off the chair & into the pit
    Our chair got to about the red mat/target when it stopped.
    Adult next to me (kids grandfather - see below) jumped off.
    I don’t think he was prepared for the landing because he didn’t get up for a while.

    Here he is on his walk of shame back to the load area. Lifty Sherpa’d his skis back.

    Remaining guy on the chair said “That is the fourth time this has happened to him and his grandchildren. And it’s always the lifties fault!”

    “So this has happened to him four times now? When was the last time?”
    “Last year.”
    “So he comes here once a year and every time the lifties fuck up and dump his grandchild in the pit?”
    “That’s what he said”

    So I then generously offered my perspective as someone who is here 75 days a year and volunteers with OAS (whose athletes need lots of help and use that chair a lot), to wit: The source of grandpas problem does not rest with the lift crew - it's that guy he sees in the mirror.
    - that part in the skiers responsibility code about being able to load/ride/unload lifts safely obviously
    needs Improvement.
    - it’s up to the adults to either get the kid’s back-to-chairback, OR ask the liftie for help. They did neither.

    I also suggested they get a vest or harness with a handle in the back to yard the kid back onto the seatback. Saves the low back when picking them up after falls too.

    And he said “it will be a quiet ride back to Portland if I tell him that”
    "OK"

    Jonesy was in the chair behind and had a better seat to the carnage. Hopefully he will add color commentary

    The only other time I've loaded a quad chair and the two middle seats ejected in the first 15 sec was NYD 2000. Shooting Star chair at MHM. lady skied into the pit at load, her SO cold-cocked her by swinging his ski into her head, and then jumped off.

    K2skier, was SS detachable or fixed grip then? Can’t remember

    Snow looks really fun in the top pics, my favorite to ski (since I can’t ski powder, I snowboard it).
    How long have you been with OAS?
    HS buddy named Jeff Newman, an Armada guy, was with them as well. Why do I get the feeling you know Newman?

    I think you’d be better off with a snow machine towing peeps from Sky base back to West Village. Much higher towing capacity than a dog sled.

    And thinking about this a little more, they could set up a mini Arctic Man comp - down cliffhanger, get towed back up to top of sky via the parks at speed, then down some combo of Olympian, Coffee, Canyon and T-bird to base

    In 2000 it was fixed grip. IIRC it was mid 2000's when Poma upgraded the old CTEC to detachable
    Correction-Between 1997 and 1999 it was upgraded to detachable

    MHM pros, what is the name of this bowl?
    Is it Accordion? Or does Accordion face Clark Cyn?
    The trail map is not particularly helpful: Hinterlands? or Accordion? Or something else?

    Definitely not a pro, but everyone I've skied with at MHM calls that accordion.

    I'm pretty sure you can reach lower Hinterlands if you drop into Heather from the top of star.

    Tho I've never called anything above "accordion" anything other than clark.

    Did a lot of scratching around, and found my happy place. Elevator was skiing really well after about 10.

    Anybody wants to stretch their legs from T-line lot to a bit above palmer tomorrow? I'll probably start in the lot around 8 or 830, pm me if interested.

    The waterfall just around the corner up canyon from that rockband is buried. Guessing the debris from that slide that ran down Clark earlier this season helped fill it in. Crossing near the falls today I could hear water pounding under the snow and see some seriously spooky cracks.

    Just below the bench where you took that pic, the debris made some really impressive scour marks where it rode up the canyon walls.

    Felt really good to get back into azone, sliver, and Clark for the first time this season.

    I think of anything left of the waterfall as accordion.
