How's your legs after skiing 2' of new extra wet snow? Did you have an over the handlebars turn or just fade away as the chop got heavier. I did even make it to the crack of noon.....and was soaked through. No need for a bath tonight. Ski tomorrow. :-)

I hit the Bowl up last night, it was a little grabby, waist deep in many spots. Highlight was some beater making some comment about the size of my ski's, then promptly pulling a double ejection 2 turns down Accelerator.

Hasn't been wet in the inland NW.

 

I'm going to ski 2' of dry snow tomorrow at Silver Mountain. :D

Carnage and Mayhem of the beaters was entertaining.  i-ve-fallen-and-i-can-t-get-up_design.png Haven't you heard Idaho has been acquired by Utah! Not in the NW anymore.biggrin.gif

Things must have been really different where you were than they were here.  We had 12" of blower to start the day, bluebird skies with a few fluffies and cold temps.  It was one of the two best days of my season.  The snow was soft all day and I skied harder than I have all year.  It was fantastic!

There were a couple of inches of snow at my house Monday morning, a couple hundred feet above sea level.  Gotta love spring in the northwest!

We had a couple of road closures this AM due to Avys on the Santiam Pass and downed lines,trees from significant amounts of wet snow.  Got a pair of Stockli's Sprints also. They will work you.

Probably the best day I've had all season - 14" fresh and light - blue skies in the AM - no crowds - no lift lines yahoo.gif

What a difference between Monday and Tuesday. The temperature was in the teens with dry snow on Monday and then super-heavy cement on Tuesday. I only stuck around for maybe five or six runs on Tuesday – wet, heavy snow with poor visibility and strong winds just wasn't doing it for me. When I pulled out of the parking lot the car thermometer said it was 39°F. No big crashes though.

Crystal was sweet yesterday. High Campbell was nice, soft, lightish and deep. Not blower, but not heavy either. Did one lap into Silver  Basin and it was knee deep and so effortless. Did another lap into Avy Basin and it was more of the same. Could see the thin blue line up north where the sky was sunny and blue, while from Xtal south was overcast. It was a really nice mellow pow day with low crowds and good soft snow to be had all over the mountain, even down low below top of REX.

Same at Stevens yesterday.  Definitely not heavy snow at all, it was a gorgeous day.

Complete reverse of yesterdays conditions at Flachelor. Clear,cold and calm. Opened summit and about 3 feet of new snow. You could hear the snow spray hitting the sides of your legs in the turns and your shadow in front of you,cool.  Got home and there were my new skis. 170cm Rossignol Averger Ti,these are going to be fun. It was a good day.
