    It's dumping in town in bozeman for sure. the realtime weather from bridger looks like its snowing more in town than on the hill.

    Bridger was spectacular today, and should be off the hook tomorrow!

    Holy mackeral, 59 new in 24!

    http://www.bridgerbowl.com/fs_snowReport.php

    I was at Crystal back in '95 during the 63" in 24 and 93" in 48 hr massive dump. The upper mountain didn't open for three days and by then it had all gone to muck. Too bad, cause it was under 5% fluff while it was falling. That won't happen at Bridger! I've heard you guys get under 2% stuff often. Dang, I wish I was there!

    First I was pissed I was missing Alta's storm, now I realize I'm missing a better one. Hope the airport is open tomorrow and The Ridge doesn't open until Monday. And the wind doesn't blow....and it doesn't settle overnight as quickly as it normally does....and that I start visiting my family only during the summers...auggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. poop.

    Unhappy

    I would like to let all you mutherfukers know that I had my skis lined up for first chair this morning......... Oh, it was going to be so, so sick.... Anyway, hopefully I can pull it off again tommorow morning. It's going to be a mad house up there though with people coming out of the woodwork to get the fresh snow.........I think an arrival of 7:15 might only get you 5-6th chair.........Needless to say it should be interesting.

    With that much new and the extreme avy danger, what do you locals think of the chances the Ridge might open Monday or Tuesday? I may just jump in the truck and buzz over from Seattle.

    My best guess is that the Ridge won't be open until Monday afternoon at the earliest.....Also, they might not have the D-Route open until a few days after that......

    Thanks, Peter! You guys better all run down to the dive shop and buy out all their snorkels!!! Tomorrow will be EPIC and I'm majorly jealous.

    I think I'll just have to stay here and sample the dumpage that is just about to start. It is just started puking and is almost snowing at my house in town. When the snow levels are at or near the surface, as they are now, the Cascades are incredible..and Alpental has more sick terrain than you can shake a stick at! I'll be there tonite or tomorrow. Forecast is for above normal precip and below temps for the next 14 days, and one storm after the other. Oh yeah!!

    About once a year we get a huuuuge dump, but I've never seen anything like this in 11 years. The best story I've heard is from 1980, with 80" inches total. Mountain was closed for 3 days, but it was so cold the snow didn't settle before it opened. Old-timers tell me about skiing underneath the snow down North Bowl. The snow was not flowing over their heads...they were literally submerged and making turns in 2% snow.

    This could be one of those storms. I'm guessing they won't have the upper mountain or The Ridge opened until Monday. But who knows. If the wind doesn't blow, these next two days will be unforgettable.

    Two feet more (so far) than Kevin's pow section in JSD for reference......oh snap.
