It was raining in Pasadena at 5am. Hope that means snow up in the mountains, is usually does!! It's already stopped raining--if the sun comes out I am gonna be so pissed!!!


I can see Mt Wilson from my house (ele 5880) it was covered in snow all last winter. I remember when the snow level dropped to 3000 ft last december... : ( I don't think i've even seen any ice up there this year.


Z, I will hit you up as soon as I know!! I took a 530 am spin class and on the way there I saw a few cars with boards on roof racks heading east on the 210. So jealous!

Okay...Wasn't a good idea to sleep at 1am when trying to wake up at 7 hahah. Really don't like missing school but I know I'm not going to miss much. Plus if there's new snow for tomorrrow That's a nice bonus.

This community has been awesome..I'll be heading over to summit to start..might have to take shuttle over there since I just talked to my friend and he said he already booked resort to stay over by bear for a couple nights.
as mentioned before, i am planning to take classes...is it better to book the beginner's classes online in advance vs signing up once there, or doesn't matter? looking on bear/summit's site, seems like a great deal for lessons, pass and discount on rental (i'm renting board, have everything else).
new snow..awesome!! hopefully it piles on and stays there when we arrive

Oh, had a question: Is Snow Summit more along the lines of a freeride type of mountain compared to Big Bear? Are they better trails for carving and going fast?

IMO, yes. Bear has got some decent runs but I enjoyed cruising at SS more. Geronimo is fun at bear when there's fresh, but other than that, I personally think SS is superior.

Take chair 1 to the top. Then ride down to chair 5 or 6. Which might not be open on a weekday.

Dicky's, The Wall and Olympic are steep-ish.


Avoid chairs 3, 9, 7, 10. No speed to be had there, just mellow blue runs with some park features.


Well, I like chair 3 a lot. It's sheltered from the wind and it's a nice slow chair....if you get what I'm sayin'



Z, I think I am just flat out telling my skeduler that I am not available tomorrow. The mtns are calling....
