Can't decide...Electric EG2's or EG2.5's or go with Von Zipper Fishbowls? Anyone have any of these? Using it with a Giro Combyn Helmet.

No problem, will do!

Heading up to Highlands this weekend. Will try and hook up with Trapper.

I've had a lot of trips up north this season but not as much riding as I would have liked. Easily should have had an additional 3-4 days at Highlands than I have now. Mid-week riding has been practically non-existent. I would have liked to have gotten out at least once week night a week.

I'm getting bummed about the winding down of the season.

Have fun you guys. Sab,.. I know you absolutely hate to spend extra on tickets, but if conditions are good, fresh snow etc? You really should do a 3-4 hour pass to nubs during the day and checkout their backside glades with trapper! I think you'd have a blast!


....as for the season's possible demise? After my 4 week riding absence,.. I'm really hoping that with the huge record base's everyone's got this year, and hopefully with a few more good sized storms to add to it in the next month or two? I hope some places will be able to stay open WELL into April, maybe even (snowgod's willing,) May????

it is a small consolation that Boho isn't running their lifts today because of high winds (50+mph). So even if I was up there, we'd have to be hiking, which is a LOT of work. I mean, I'd do it, but it drains your strength pretty quick.

It's been puking snow up here, the drive has been straight treacherous. That means tomorrow is going to be a pow day.

Nubs was amazing tonight after a mediocre afternoon session. We battled the wind the entire time but it was whiteout during the grooming shutdown. When we got back out there we had powder in places and fresh soft corduroy that quickly was covered with fresh. There was 6 to 8 inches in the bowls on the north side. And the best part? Basically no one else there. 10 empty chairs in front and behind us for much of the evening. Tremendous conditions. Top 5 easy for the season. Meeting up with Sam 9am at Highlands tomorrow. Still snowing hard, should be great conditions tomorrow.

Chomps, didn't play much in the glades, the tower glades were a bit tracked out and bay view and southern comfort glades were roped offer and looked moguled up as well. In the evening we spent our time on the face and side bowls. The wind was the only bitch to battle tonight, but was well worth it.

Epic pow day at Highlands and Nubs today. Started really coming down Friday afternoon and it didn't stop until after lunch today.

The official tally was 10 inches of unexpected fresh but snow was up to our knees when getting fresh tracks and because the roads were bad we were getting fresh tracks on the Interconnect runs through lunch.

There's still fresh to be found at 4p but the main runs are pretty choppy now and could use the groomer.
