Snow summit has a bunch of runs. Definitely something for everybody. A lot of them are open runs with some features, but theyve also got some steeps to bomb that arent very crowded. Looking toward the mountain, the left side is where you do that (not sure what the lift #'s are). Ive never been to Bear mtn, but from everything ive read and been told, its mostly a snowboard park.

Niceee! If I wake up this time around, I'll be at Mt. High too. I'm going to hold off on Snow Summit & Bear when I have a pal or two with me. I can't talk to myself for an hour & 1/2 If you see a short guy with a black Analog jacket, grey pants and white boots; that should be me!

Heading to Mt High this morning too. If you want to meet up lemme know on here, or find me- I'll be in white helmet, black jacket, gray pants, black boots, white board, and bearded.

According to Snow Summit's report, they received 12-14 inches of snow yesterday.

Good luck to those who are heading up Remember Chains are required today.

Mt High was pretty good today. Had this white stuff lapping up over my board and hitting my ankles, very unfamiliar feeling this season. Most pow stashes tracked out by 11, until ducking the closed ropes but that was a bit rocky in places. Never ridden the west before. Nice setup, liked their lines of various size kickers.

Almost diverted to ss this morning, but I still have no chains.

I'm glad I didn't go to S.S. I have no chains! There was a sign on the 15-N saying that you need chains if your going to the mountains and I was pretty worried but the road conditions were completely fine! I was slow to get up so I got to Mt. High at 10:40am or so. The snow was nice! I went up to the right side of the mountain after a good amount of time getting used to things again in the green trails. It was soooo nice up there! Better snow, super hazy, it was awesome! I was unfamiliar with the trails up there but I think I avoided the black diamond trails Not ready for that. I'll put up some pictures I took on my phone. I'm really tired! Today was my first time riding for the season and the first time on my own setup. The response on my board was so much better than the Burton LTR's I rented at the resort I need to put on the Rome stomp pad that came with my bindings. I didn't expect my topsheet to be soo slick in the snow. I've seen people without them so thought it would be fine but it was way too slick, it was very hard to skate. I got more used to it as the day went on but still not easy.
