I came home early from work and it's coming down pretty hard. There is about a half ich that's actually stuck on the ground now. Hope it continues through the night. It was 45 degrees today so the ground was hot...

We are getting some snow in California so I'm happy. I'm going to try to get some laps in this weekend. Now I'm just trying to find a board.

Within 5-20 min of my OP, the weather forecast changed to almost a week of snow graphics. I am predicting, albeit wildly, that the rest of moon cycle, until back to full, will be wet for the whole west.

holy awesome.

How was Breck? I think I'm heading there tomorrow.

Someone just sent me a picture of Vail at the Vista Bahn lift - grass everywhere and not even any connected snow spots to where you could even try to get down... You'd have to unstrap about 5x in a couple hundred feet.

The conditions at breck were much better than vail. It was a lot busier tho. Vail had tons of runs with grassy patches and a lot was closed. But regardless, the snow went to crap by noon on both mountains.

Just found this link from Angry Snowboarder, not sure if it was from today or not (thats what it seems to imply, but then again they did a VERY quick edit job to have this on the internet already):

Parks and Recreations Ep. 3 As The Cro Flies The Angry Snowboarder The Angry Snowboarder

EDIT: Found out that video is from last week, so still looking for some recon on what the conditions are like at Breck today/yesterday/etc.

Better slow down guys. Forecasters are starting to backpedal and usually when that happens, they don't backpedal enough. Oh well, we should be used to it by now. I can't remember a single storm all season that wasn't a disappointment.
