    Ya, looks like raining everywhere at the moment but storm on Saturday/Sunday looks colder. 8-14 day outlook looks promising:

    From Cali and never heard, rain corn? Sounds suspect.

    I remember it always being sunny.

    Actually, living 4 hours from the mountains meant that wasnt skiing if it was raining haha. I hadnt learned the PNW ways yet....

    Seems lucky that the Hyak chair build hasn't gotten shut down by a massive storm yet. It's pretty late to be doing that!

    Out of curiosity, how many lifts have you built?

    No kidding. I very much doubt HV will be open this season. Not that big of a change from last season to be honest.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the delays are due to equipment lead times... Manufacturing is still a goat rope and it seems no one can be held to a deadline these days.

    Got up late.

    I'm done with the fighting.

    Shit ch-ch-ch-changes, so I rolled into an icy B lot late at 9:10, made 6th row back. No parking attendants, so the layout was pretty higgildy-piggildy. Saw a few people go down hard. No shuttles running, not that I ever take them and I walked up and was in line by 9:30.

    The new lodge is nowhere near done, a canonical laminate sweep, just that bulbous quonset hut available for shelter. All this for your $1900 lift pass. What a scam.

    The sun is low and weak, so the rides in the shade felt cold. Chairs crusted with snowmaking rime. Quality management. Only 2 runs open: Chinook Express top past FQ base into Tinker Bell and out onto Quicksilver. No Skid Road or Stump farm. Also Quicksilver from the top, which had an inch of cream on top of the crunchy groom. The frontside still looks boney., they need another 2+feet to even think about that. GV is to open; take your rock skis.

    Did a little walk up into the solace green,

    Made speed laps for 3+ hours, the knee held up despite the firm snow.

    I remember skiing at Mission when they were still building the new bubble quad, this was thanksgiving time. Haul rope still on the spool. They pulled the haul rope and had it load tested and running sometime around New Year iirc. The biggest wait was for the splicing crew to get here from Austria, this was 2020 full Covid restrictions on travel

    Really? Snow report says 12 overnight with 14 at 24 hours and 19 at 48 hours. Are you talking about the point forecast for Mount Baker? The ski area isnt on Mount Baker and its 5000 below the summit.

    Just to give you some background..

    We dont trust the weather report here more than 3 days out. We dont trust the weather report at all during the shoulder season (now). It changes really fast, what you are seeing has a high chance of turning to fucked. Thats why no one else is talking about it. The mountains are low in elevation, but most importantly; Were really close to this giant blue thing, you might have heard of it, its called the Pacific Ocean.

    Secondly- This thread is full of Seattlites. Seattlites are good at two things; driving under the speed limit and complaining.
