It's not an epidemic to the point where you have to chain the board to your leg and carry pepper spray, but like with anything don't leave your stuff unattended. They have a free ski/board check right next to the Lodge/main lift, no excuse to just leave your board out. Go up, hand them your board and they give you a ticket and go walk 20 ft to the lodge(eat/warm up/piss). If you use the ski check, you can knock off that fear of losing your shit.

They are blowing snow in addition to the fact that it's still snowing naturally, based off the cams it looks like another 3 inches has fallen since I first posted and it's still coming down. We still got the rest of today and all of tomorrow + the snow blowing to build a layer.

It's looking real good, and they said by tomorrow they will know if it's a go for Sunday. I already laid out my gear in my room, here's hoping. If it does open and you plan on going just let me know and we can meet up there if you want. I'm usually there an hour before opening and I sit in the lodge eating my breakfast until the lifts run. Nobody has ever given me attitude/trouble or bothered me while I'm up there, no thug is gonna shank you for looking at him wrong.

Hi there fellas. Just joined this forum, was looking for something more of a "local nature".

I hit Bear, not interested in MtH. Also my days are usually mid week so I don't care about ppl since there are none at Bear during those days anyway

This year I will be making a trip to Mammoth for sure, never been. In-laws have a bom-diggidy place in Truckee but works does not permit a trip any time soon. Fail.

Will be on here often, so lets catch up.

Happy shredding in 13/14!

R.

Let's just say the LA scene doesn't belong on a mountain.

Def looking forward to Mt High opening, even though Id obviously rather be in Bear or Mammoth. Mammoth is quite a farther drive and their entire mountain isnt even open yet, so I'm not sure its worth it until mid-season.

I'm def down to meet up with some ppl at some point tho. There should be a Socal meetup thread...

I agree completely. I only go to mountain high once a year and that's only because of the free lift ticket from snow jam.

It's not that bad. Well the resort itself sucks. But it's an easy ride and usually opens before Bear. So I get a free ticket to Mt High from Snowjam and there is usually one or two new riders to my group each year so it's a good place to take them to learn because the lifts are slow and the runs are short. The whole West is basically mellow even the "black" runs.

I'll go up there on a Friday just to test out my new gear and get some snow legs under me. But that's about it for High. It's really small. When east opens it's a little better but still not all that great.

It's official Mt High is opening tomorrow, 8:30am. Bear is also getting shit on with snow and they are doing snowmaking as well, so they could very well be open for the Thanksgiving weekend if we're lucky. I'm considering skipping tomorrow and just heading down during the week to avoid the crowd, all that pent up riding frustration is about to explode when everyone and their Mom hits Mt. High tomorrow. Might go Monday instead, but we will see how bad I want to ride tonight. If I do go I'll probably be there at 7am to get a front row spot for my car, and then I'll just recline the seat and sleep until lifts start spinning
