GP still has over 3' of base and it's snowing pretty damn hard here right now.

President weekend is big for the hill so conditions will be just fine.

Looks like I better bring the old Fat Bob with me in case the woods are a little bare.

5" of beautiful powder here today and temps that are not going to make it disappear.

You want open glade runs? We have them. All glades are now set to "open" as of this evening. The only 2 runs that aren't open are really steep diamonds that are basically rock covered. They honestly aren't much more than a chute anyways.

My new ContourRoam2 FINALLY gets here tomorrow (3 weeks to ship, wtf) and I plan on getting as much footage as I can this and early next week to show how things are...if you can get past my edge catches caught on tape.

Derp, I was trying to take Friday off so we could get up there earlier. I wasn't sure if we were gonna try to ride Friday during that late session or just go to that killer pizza joint that you showed me.
Now I can't get off work Friday so that may be a mute issue. It may still happen I think payroll screwed up and I have a day left I will know more tomorrow.

Worst case I leave after work there by 9pm Crash early and hit the hill early.
I'll keep you posted

I've had the fat bob for a long time, keep it for a back up or to run the woods in the Midwest. I love the wide boards, really stable and float good in the powder.
