update on PNW weather conditions...IT STILL SUCKS ASS!

apparently tammy is going to open a few runs the 15th with some man made snow. as much as it kills me, and hurts to the core of my soul to ride icy man made garbage, i might just have to go because im sick of waiting

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

Anyone have an guess as the outlook for next weekend? NOAA forecast doesn't look good through Wednesday. I ask, as I'll be working at SEA-TAC on the 19th, and planned to ride on Sunday and Tuesday. Was hoping to hit Baker and one other... and would love to bring my new Barracuda if there is any chance for some fresh snow.

looks like light rain and a high freezing level lowering over the weekend and then rising again midweek

Northern Idaho 1/9/12

Schweitzer(Sandpoint): Great coverage with 100% terrain open, some ice - but trails are relatively smooth. Off-Piste is covered but hard due to wet snow.

Brundage(McCall): Low coverage, lots of rocks, stumps and trees sticking out. Groomed trails are covered but sufficiently icy conditions exist. We got some good sidecountry, but anything inbounds off-piste is crap right now.

just went to brundage today, first actual day of boarding this winter

the day started off pretty bad, just the occasional soft stuff on top of icy, crusty crap. We found a couple of runs with soft snow through the trees. On the right side of the resort there were still tons of spots where there was no snow and plenty of dirt exposed, mainly around trees or steeper sections of trail. However on the left side of the mountain where the cool shit is at, all of the double blacks, huge natural drops and jumps and mini chutes, we found some pretty fresh, soft snow that was on the verge of "powder" it was a pretty dam fun day, and even better since we got half off tickets with our bogus basin season pass. Now during a normal winter no way i would spend the time and money to go up there for those conditions. but it was by far the best we had so we made the best of it and had a blast

also funny side note, i was cutting through some trees thinking it was going to dump me out by the main lift, well i was wrong and it dumped me out at the bunny hill lift, which it lower than the main lift. So it was either walk up the hill or just take the lift, so i just went to get on the lift. Now the lift for the bunny hill ONLY serves the bunny hill, so the only people riding it are brand new beginners. On this day it appeared that a bus full of middle school kids went up to the hill because EVERYONE in the line was under 5' tall and was on rental skis and of course didnt have a clue how to ski. So here i am (try to imagine this), a giant in this line, with all of my very unbeginner like gear, and on the the lift with these super novice skier kids and i must say it was quite embarrassing. I just rode up this super slow lift with my hand on my face thinking how stupid i look



also on a positive note apparently Wednesday is when it is supposed to start snowing in the valley and we might actually start having a "winter". it sure will be entertaining when the first real snow hits and everyone realizes they have forgotten how to drive in the snow, oh boy.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

Mt. Spokane is finally getting some decent coverage.

Sunday was an inch and a half on top of the ice sheet (=shitty!)

Then they got 6 inches while closed on Mon/Tue and I'm pissed I couldn't make it up until 6:30pm for night riding on Wed., 'cause even in the trees just off the beaten path (in the dark) there was plenty of fresh pow. I can't even imagine what my staches would've been like!

Sounds like you guys hit exactly what we did, it just took us until the end of the week to find it

That's why you live in Idaho, where the mountains are still good but there's no population. Just lots of moronic hicks abound
