while that is possible, it's still a weekday, in the middle of the week. And as far as I can tell, school just started again for most colleges, so I'm hoping that will coupled with no natural snow leading up to it will be a deterrent for kids to skip a day just to ride at almost half price...

It probably won't be any worse on the 29th than any normal weekend day. I have a pass so there is no incentive for me to go up that day. We went up last friday and still found some good tree stashes. High of 60* today but I'm hoping that cock tease of a storm we had won't be our last.

Dim Mak, I live near the 210 and campus. We must be pretty close. Baldy is closed, I hear.

I live in Chino, sir I go to Chaffey in Rancho so I'm staring at Baldy pretty up close 2 times a week. Looks so epic when the wind has blown away the pollution and it has snow on top. Oh, is Baldy closed? I had no clue. I've actually never snowboarded there, just hike the mountain. I feel bad for them since they just bought some more/or a better snowmaking machine and added some more stuff to their park.

Every MLK & Pres Day is like that. Most places I've been midweek are usually on the empty side... Hoping this weds will be too

Looks like some precip in the forecast for Monday. I can probably weasle my way out of work on Tuesday.

If conditions are decent I'll be making the trip to High. Anyone want to ride?

The weather is mostly shit, but Bear has good snow machines so you should have a good time. Just make sure you get there as soon as they open to get the most of the conditions.
