This current storm sure is layin' it down. Love to see NWS forecast discussion with stuff like this. . .

Quote:
IT SHOULD SNOW HARD
THROUGH TONIGHT WITH STRONG WLY FLOW MORE FAVORABLE FOR THE PASSES.
ANOTHER FOOT COULD FALL AT PASS LEVEL AND POSSIBLY 2 MORE FEET AT
THE HIGHER SKI RESORTS AND ALONG THE W FACING SLOPES OF THE
VOLCANOES. SNOW WILL CONTINUE IN COLD NW FLOW THURSDAY BUT AMOUNTS
WILL PROBABLY BE ADVISORY LEVEL. WILL LOOK AT THIS MORE CLOSELY FOR
THE NEXT STATEMENT UPDATE THIS AFTERNOON. SNOW TO LIQUID RATIOS WILL
BE MUCH HIGHER
SO WILL NEED TO TAKE THAT INTO ACCOUNT.

Well, we had the meet and it was great, although I was very much Charles Barclay in this one. Sorry guys, hope I didn't slow things down too much.

Baker isn't the biggest mountain (Whistler is considerably bigger IMO) but it's a technically difficult mountain. It has far less of a groomed "Disney" feel than Whistler. You could spend a long long long time just finding all the nooks, let alone mastering them.

NW, I haven't found that video yet. It may not be there. This Drift camera seems to be temperamental.

For everyone else, NWBoarder landed his snowboard on my head today. Glad I had a helmet!!!!

(first time i went to Baker i felt very disoriented, it is a very unusual mountain...just feels different geologically than anywhere i've ridden. ended up loving it, esp. when i got some knee-deep up on the Hemispheres, that one run made the whole trip...made my whole week actually

there are def some weird things about it, and no doubt the gnar factor of alot of it is off the charts, can wait to get back next year)

Donutz did great and we all got to go skijoring...in fact Donutz and NW got to do tandem skijoring. It was too bad that half the hill was closed, but had a good day and tomorrow ought to be better...get somebody give you the tour on the other half.

I had so much fun today! Donutz, you did just fine, and kept up well. Hopefully you'll find the video, cause I bet it's freaking hilarious. And if didn't catch it, then we'll just have to go recreate it. ;-) Lol I think the only way this trip could have better is if chair 6 was running. Make sure you get up to it tomorrow Donutz, you won't regret it. And the skijoring behind the sled was awesome. Thanks for the great day guys, I had a blast. :-)
