I never made it tonight, sold my kids board on CL had to meet the buyer, transmission fluid in car needed changing badly, and got the snowblower fired up to handle this storm. Now I'm free of projects and can ride this snow from the storm !!!!

Zolemite way better conditions than when I was there last Tuesday !!!!

I'll be there Saturday and maybe Friday but that is a big if for Friday, my kids with be there Friday though

I started my snowblower today. I just bought a brand new Sno Tek. Really like some of the features so far. I'm getting more and more pumped for my trip to GP just after Christmas.

Pretty sure I can't make Sunday we have church service.
My kids went last night. Some small "rider made" jumps said they were fun to just pop off and mess around on. Conditions were pretty good, very windy and cold though.
I have to work this morning, so hoping to get out late afternoon. That should happen, I'll post condition report later.

Alpine was pretty nice tonight. The snow was kinda slow, but you could tell there was some natural snow as well. I had a blast riding with a few old friends. Pretty much all the runs were open and they were blowing like crazy in the runs that weren't open. I'd say by next weekend all runs will be open.

Im jealous !!!! I still haven't made it. Had to get ready for family and had Christmas service last night. I have Wed off so I"ll be there around lunch and probably Thur & Fri night including the weekend.
Great just in time to ride with the holiday crowds....oh well better than not riding.

Let me know if you head out over the holiday, maybe we can take a few chairs.
They should be making snow still, they really need to cover that block of ice under all the fresh/manmade snow.

I'm heading up to Granite Peak Thursday-Sunday to hopefully beat the crowds a bit myself. I might be up at Alpine for New Year's Eve though.
