Waxico Going to Boyne in 10 minutes.

Probably have Strep Throat. F**k it, I'm riding.

Plenty of time to sleep when I'm dead.

sabatoa Hope the snow pans out. This'll be my first weekend home since early January. I guess it worked out with the temps, and Bella being with me this weekend.

Trapper- you doing a one day round trip up there on Monday?


So I have a first world problem. Transportation to Big Sky is being a pain in the ass- either the plane leaves too early, the connections are too short, or the flight arrives too late to get rental cars.

We were debating Whistler, but the weather for the next month is shit and it's not a high altitude area so we're afraid of melt off and shit conditions.

I dunno, maybe Utah...but I need to figure it out soon.

trapper Yea, not gonna make it up there this weekend, unfortunately. Daughter's basketball game tomorrow and I'm actually coming into work for the afternoon after that.

Monday I have off, however, and am road tripping it up to either Highlands or Crystal for the day.
Today 12:29 PM
david_z I'll be at Schuss/Shanty this weekend if anyone's around. Gonna be brutal cold tomorrow...

Hoping they get the 4-6" tonight, the midweek snow at Boyne never happened so it was dust-on-crust on Wednesday.

Uggg. I have a ski patrol test coming up where we have to take a loaded toboggan through the bumps and we run the set on Aurora.

Sunday it warmed up to 40 degrees. It rained, for 5 minutes. Soft snow then the sun came out. Mogul ripping!!! Love to see the faces of the skiers as I churn past on a snowboard.

Great conditions for sure.
Did you get a look at the mogul field? Large / Small? fluffy / icy?

sabatoa Highlands had some nice fresh Saturday on top of the packed powder from earlier in the week. Today was an annoying rain at the base, but snow on top. I know that sounds crazy but it's true, somewhere halfway up the hill it switched from rain to snow and then from snow to rain as you came down again.

I had a good run from January though this weekend, but I'm not able to go anywhere the next couple weekends because of some class projects. Sucks. So unless I go midweek somewhere I'm on the sidelines until end of Feb. It looks like I'm going to end around 18-20 days for the season.
