Resident mobsters is an apt description.

Got a room near Glacier and came back for a bluebird groomer day on Monday.

The scenery is spectacular. Lots of locals, and much better boarders and skiers, were hiking up and taking adavantage of the slackcountry.
Was also up there on Monday and there were very few folks in the bc cause it was 3-4" of dust on crust. However the groomed was nice unusually smooth and fast (we don't have great groomer operators and often too many folks that mogul them up) but Monday was great for doing bomber laps and no gapers to dodge.

Nice photos. I was probably one of the gapers you were trying to avoid. I was surprised how many newbs there were on a Monday.

Saw some high speed activity on the groomers and had a few rider rocket by me.

Thought the groomer were decent, spent most of the day riding Chairs 5 & 8. We both like cruising long groomed runs so Mission and Bachelor are the preferred hills, they lay some smooth runs.

I can see why Baker is popular, I just don't think I'll ever be good enough to really ride most of the terrain.

We did manage to ride The Chute on Sunday, we didn't style it but avoided side hilling the whole thing. There was some good turns getting to it that lasted longer than most of the hill.

12" to 20" at BAKER Thursday ? I don't think so, maybe on top of Mount BAKER (14,000'), but not at the lodge 4100'
