Ugh fucking tradeshows and business bullshit. Tomorrow I go on the quest for pow, at least out of the tradeshow I gained access to a private snowcat on Vail Pass.

Some good turns down Snow White yesterday. Blowing really hard, almost white out conditions at times but the climb was worth it.

I saw that shit show on my way back to DIA yesterday morning. I couldnt believe it how far it was backed up. It was about 9am and I could only estimate alot of those people would be lucky to get on a mountain by noon. To me it didnt seem worth it but I guess to each its own.

Y up for an hour. Yesterday was THE day. Long time locals rank it amongst the best ever. The sun and wind are out this afternoon so it will smooth and crust over on the backside..... Bluesy trees should be great. Yesterday there was not a single line on the backside that could not be straight lined raging down the mountain while screaming at the top of your lungs from the sheer excitement and overwhelming joy.....

This morning we got a quick downpour of fresh snow, about 1.5-2".... That's it for today. If their report of 9" was true yesterday then my dick is about 1/4" long....

Tomorrow there will be tons of fresh in the frontside and bluesy trees actually, wind is knocking the 8" off the tree limbs and no one has really hit up the trees regardless.
Man, i'm so upset I missed out on Thursday and just stayed in BC that day. I didnt even pull the snow report that morning, lol. We did go on Tuesday which was pretty good though. But to be honest even if I had seen the snow report I wouldnt have been able to go over on Thursday as my 3 1/2 year old was in ski school and I needed to be close in case he lost it(which always happens with kids that age, lol) and I have horrible cell coverage in the back bowls in case ski school needed to contact me. Oh the joys of trying to be a responsible parent, lol.

Just wait, in a few years your kid will be riding the back bowls alone. There is not a run on any of the mountains up here that my son wont do. I let him ride the backside alone now and bluesky unless it is a day like Thursday....

Kids are alot of fun once they get out of the learning stage.... 6 or 7. Being a responsible parent does suck sometimes though.

Regret not taking Thursday off of work to go ride, but still found GREAT snow on Saturday. We started by taking 3 laps on Poppyfields in China bowl... wide open, first tracks. Spent the rest of the day in the trees in Blue Sky, lapping Pete's for a while. At least 2 feet deep in most spots. I must have gotten stuck 30x yesterday and I am still sore today.



Hoping it snows this coming weekend as well (actually, hope it snows every day forever).

Looks like snow late Friday most of Saturday. Finally got to ride Breck yesterday and went on the quest for pow but it looks like the winds just blew everything off. Did get into some mid thigh stuff in the trees.

Its amazing how quickly it goes back to shit...this morning at love was all chopped up boilerplate again, last week spoilt me hard.

I hate it when I'm with people who wanna search for pow when there isn't any, its just tiring.

Groomers and park this week...(although there are alot of tree stumps and jibs pretty ripe right now you can luge through the shiz)

Went to Breck yesterday and immediately went to Imperial which was looking rough from the lift so I decided to hike up and definitely glad I did, dropped in to the best looking spot and got some ankle deep turns with some crust on top.

Sadly a lot of the runs had rocks and shit sticking out already. Park lane was real nice as usual though so good day overall.

Heres some pics, Im not using an image hosting site with them so your gonna have to click them, sorry.

All taken from the top after the hike. 2nd to last is the line I was about to drop into and the last pic is some of the tracks after the run.
