It's right across the road toward the mountain from the public restrooms/coffee shop. Right below what I remember as being the Little Thunder lift. Better hurry, there is only one loft left for $303,000. It's the unit nearest the road (State Rt 906).

Think I'll toss a coin for the weekend. Blackcomb or beachhouse. Maybe both if I'm energetic enough. 30c temps forecast this weekend, probably warmer weather than we eventually get in July.
post #544 of 5615/4/13 at 2:56pm
Blackcomb today was pretty - as long as the shadows were still in the troughs of the bumps it skied ok but once direct sun hit turned to corn very fast. Then was just a lot of high speed cruising so I got bored and went home early. Time to get the road bike out and head for the beach. Unless it turns cold again I'll call it a season.

i don't know exactly - I always ski free - (after the expensive first day )
think they are about 40ish with discounts try 7-11 Squamish. Walk up rate likely 50ish. Hill still has a good base, rooms are cheap now. It is still just possible to ski down to base but below first set of chairs just ribbons of snow. Mushy even to alpine with this latest "new record temps" 30c+ in Valley, although it could change I've hit powder in May often - and a few times in June.post #547 of 5615/5/13 at 11:58ampost #548 of 5615/5/13 at 12:43pm
Skied around Chair @ Snoqualmie on Friday. Not the best snow conditions Fun day out none the less. Despite the national press warning other wise we lived through the experience and got a nice tan for our efforts. Below, Joe is dropping into Snow Lk. from the north side.
Skied Crystal this morning....wind shut down the gondola. Snow were good till around 11am. Lack of services (like food) and lifts...dismal. I had forgotten Crystal's definition of a "spring season".post #549 of 5615/5/13 at 1:16pmpost #550 of 5615/9/13 at 6:55am
41F@Summit and 63F@Base w/ light winds. Rocks and Vents on Ridges and the Snowpack is Nuked.
184cm/122mm waist full rocker ski.
Yeah it's soft.
Might as well go to the Lake.
Angles in Slush........foolish.
Try that on SL skis.post #551 of 5615/16/13 at 7:28am
Plan to post a photo of me carving a turn on my SL waterski the conditions look very similar.
Despite my intentions of calling it a season, once more heading to Blackcomb -has cooled off = bit of fresh. But no great expectations.post #552 of 5615/16/13 at 1:18pmQuote:
Have you been up lately? I haven't since April 21, missed that sunny weekend a few weeks back and regret it since it seems to be rainy/mixed bag this weekend. Will probably go up anyway since I probably can't make closing weekend.post #553 of 5615/16/13 at 10:39pm
that very warm weekend a couple of weeks ago got a bit too warm was like skiing in July or August. Melting was even evident as high as alpine but temps are now back down to normal so pretty much your typical spring skiing - as variable as the angle of sun. Sunday is forecast to be the best day of the 3 .

I posted a few vids from last weekend (5/11/13) at Crystal here:
I had too much to do at home this weekend, but decided to head to Whistler for Memorial Day Weekend. We'll be staying at the Glacier Lodge right by the Wizard Express chair at Blackcomb. Anyone else who will be around and want to meet up, post and/or send me a PM.post #557 of 5615/19/13 at 3:26pmpost #558 of 5615/22/13 at 3:12pmpost #559 of 5615/22/13 at 4:04pmQuote:
Nice. Wish I could get out at all!
At least up here, NWAC just awoke from off-season hibernation and fired up a special avy alert for the next couple days... Probably worth being aware of.Quote:
See below or view a specific region by visiting our Home page and selecting the (Detailed Avalanche) region of interest.
Special Avalanche Statement issued Noon PDT Wednesday 22 May 2013
…Potentially dangerous avalanche conditions remainder of this week and possibly into the weekend…
An upper level low pressure system and a very cool unstable air mass began to linger over the Northwest on Tuesday centered over Washington. A shortwave and showers rotating counter-clockwise within the low caused the heaviest snow showers over the central and south Cascades with unseasonably low snow levels. New snow amounts ending Wednesday mid-morning range from minor amounts in the north to a few inches at higher elevations near Stevens and Snoqualmie to 6-15 inches from about Crystal to Timberline with the most at Paradise on Mount Rainier.
The cold upper level low should linger over the Northwest Wednesday and Thursday, possibly centered over western Washington. The main shortwave and shower activity should continue to rotate counter-clockwise within the low and cause the heaviest snow accumulation in the central and south Cascades with continued unseasonably low snow levels through Thursday. The center of the low along with the primary area of showers may shift to Oregon by Friday morning.
Another 5-10 inches of snow seems likely by Thursday morning with an additional few inches possibly by Friday morning in the central and south Cascades. New snow amounts may be fairly equal west and east of the crest. Less new snow should be seen in the north Cascades.
Concerns: Potentially dangerous storm slab avalanche conditions should be expected in back country or uncontrolled areas especially in the central and south Cascades on varied aspects. Regardless of the low snow levels and cool temperatures heavy snow at this time of year is very susceptible to sun effects and daytime warming. Snow that falls during the daytime hours on Wednesday and Thursday will also be heavier due to warmer daytime temperatures which will cause denser surface snow and hence further instability. Natural and triggered avalanches should be possible or likely at higher elevations on Wednesday and Thursday especially in the central and south Cascades where snowfall is heaviest. Potential dangerous avalanche conditions should be expected. Careful snowpack evaluation, cautious route finding and conservative decision making should be essential.
Loose wet snow avalanche conditions should also become more likely by Friday and into the weekend. Poor or dangerous snow and avalanche conditions should also be expected at higher elevations on the volcanoes especially in the central and south Cascades.
This statement will be updated as warranted.

@spindrift. Funny you should mention that. A few of us were talking about that today. Seems like a dangerous scenario. The New Snow appeared to bond well to the old base but we were on low angle terrain. Be safe out there.post #561 of 5615/22/13 at 10:44pm
Monday, just prior to dropping into the Nisqually chutes on very hard snow/ice
Any new snow..and they have had pleanty in the last few days..... will need some time to settle and warmer temps to make it stick.
