Mammoth could definitely use a new coat of fresh. That forecast looks like just whats needed too, sounds like it'll be heavier snow.

Everything is pretty packed down, but the warmer temps lately have created some slushy snow spots in the sunny areas. Top of Lincoln is starting to look pretty sad and brown, but all in all much better than last season still. I was surprised they were grooming riccochet (top to bottom), dragon's alley, and scottys. Made for some fun fast steep groomer bombing in the first hour.

I'll try to get some more pics put up later today.

I am headed up Sunday night. Riding Monday and Tuesday. Gotta work wednesday


Here's hoping that everything opens by noon on monday for a lovely bluebird powder day!And that Tuesday is still good too.

I kinda want to go up sunday morning and ride a bit during the storm. I love me some good storm riding. Free refills and no crowds but...such is life...

I am headed up Sunday night and will be riding Mon and Tue.

Anyone else up there? lets meet up for some laps!

Hah, sorry. About 6-8 inches on the ground this morning.

The Good: Barely anyone on the mountain. Tons of fresh tracks. I spent most of my time on 5 and 3 - both were great.

The bad: Snow is really really wet and heavy. Snowing on the mountain and raining in town. Temps are right around 32 so it's relatively warm. Given the temps, it's really wet out there - jacket and gloves were soaked. Visability was ok in the morning but got pretty bad by noon - snowy and foggy mid-mountain (3, 5, etc). Visability at the base is fine. Top did not open as of noon, and neither was 23.

I got some nice fresh tracks in the morning and turned in by noon.

thank you sir! Ah, face of five is fucking rad on a pow day, oh hell everything off chair 5 rocks when filled with pow. Wait, is anything not rad when filled with pow? I think not.

I will break out my brand new day glo green Gore Tex pataguccis! Ive been dying to wear them-- bought them half price about a month ago. And rock the new bindings. OMG SO EXCITED!!! I am going to be a visual train wreck as nothing I own matches those pants

So who is gonna be making pow turns on mon-tue?

Wangta, you got my number? Anyone else, PM me. I don't want ride alone ALL DAY for two days but I will if i have to
