    That's sort of the norm but it doesn't feel like that right now. It's sort of feeling mega drought-y all across the west. I don't trust the historical norms any longer anyways. Last years La Nina was massive down here, statically breaking that norm. The last few storms went just north of us, much like the way last years La Nina systems dipped just south of the PNW. So far it looks like it flip flopped and it also feels like we just flip flopped with Europe. Europe is getting snow and we are looking like they did last year going into December.

    It might be one super sweet winter to spend predominately riding bikes in the desert. That won't hurt my feelings at all.

    Isn't Alaska the only place in NA getting it right now? Alta has nice records to compare last 15 years, there's rarely enough snow to make this season look out of the ordinary so far.

    I won't resign myself to low snow brain until sometime in January. Everything can change very fast.

    For decades the village opened on the 1st Saturday in December and closed on the 1st Sunday in April. 16 weeks per Forest service/ NPS agreements. A week was added once in a while, but it rarely was worth it. Too little snow in April or just too few skiers to be cost efficient.
    Some years back, we went to a Thanksgiving opening and it's rarely good to start. This year they added a week to end. In an El Nino season, that shows a lack of foresight.

    The village has always been notoriously slow starting. The nkotb's are always worried about the lack of snow early.

    Yesterday at the vill, lotsa new workers walking around getting their bearings. All showed a high level of cluelessness. It was depressing.

    JH used to have tons of applicants with miles of experience. Nowadays, the ineptitude is palpable at every turn.
    Poor lifty gal for Sweetwater needed new boots at resort store. Instead of getting her on some rentals for a week until the employee sale, they just sold her new boots. 10% off instead of 40-50% off.
    Oh, the douchebaggery of that company. They stand on how great their employees are and how much they bring to the table. It's laughable when it's not pathetic.

    Luckily, we can almost completely detach from the corporates after buying a pass.

    Just don't get in trouble. They have serious issues in the risk assessment department these days.

    Definitely altered my plans a bit. Found some dry powder, which was not bad for basically zero snow in 3 weeks.

    Very cool UaN. Let's talk about that lift sometime as my old bud Benny may know something about it. He's been skiing here since the 40's.

    Dealing with a rough patch for my elderly pet these past few days. Still very touch and go.

    Hope to make a few turns today or tomorrow.

    Kokomas was chasing the fam and kids so he was busy. Glad to see yas...


    Ouch, skiing is a bit challenging. Do your snow dances.

    First pic is awesome. Great lighting.

    Wtf is up with that wheel?
    Is that remnants of the pass lift? Even before snow king?
    Crazy.
