How do most threads on Epic get derailed? People disrespecting each other.

How's Whitefish skiing now? I may need a road trip if Mt. Hood does not get the goods soon.

I wish I could tell you. It was good when I left and had been dumping most of the time since. I've been parked down in Denver next to my mother's bedside for the last week. Flying back tomorrow.

Would be if we get some more snow!  It's nice, but a bit rocky! 

 

Check the site before a decision.  http://www.mtbachelor.com/winter/index.html  

Dirksen Derby footage is from this 2013-14 season (Dec. 2013)  The rest is from last season and past seasons. 

I do not work for Mt. Bachelor.  I just ski there.

 

BTW I got 27 days already at Bachelor, just bring rock skis!  ;)

Thread cleanup complete.  Anyone bringing in the trash from another forum will be given some time off to think better of it.  If you don't have anything good to say, don't say it.  Last time I checked, this was a stoke thread.  Let's keep it that way.

my daughter finished ski lessons at Grouse Mountain last week and they only had 3 runs open. All the BC coast is really hurting for snow this year

Hemlock is still not open, they get some snow and then lose it from rain.

 

Manning is open, conditions are getting worse due to not enough new snow. 

 

Painful. We're heading up to Kelowna/Vernon at the end of January so hopefully conditions have improved by then.

Sun Peaks has 120 of 126 runs open. After 20 years of summer grooming: picking rocks, pulling stumps, planting grass and cutting weeds, it is the go to mountain in the lean times. Right now the skiing is good but not great with the best skiing in bounds on recently groomed runs and the Gils Hill side country having the best coverage.

We may actually switch our plans from Big White/Silverstar to Sun Peaks for the end of January.

 

I haven't been up there since it was Tod Mountain resort.

That would have been over 20 years ago! You won't recognize the place. The Burfield Lodge (log building) is still there as is the Crystal chair, but everything else is new and different. Probably worth the trip to Sun Peaks just to see the changes.

 

OTOH by the end of January conditions in B.C. and the PNW may be more "normal" and Sun Peaks might not be THE place to ski in B.C. like it is right now.

We 're skiing here in SW Pa. having survived last weekends heavy rains. Skied Thursday AM in a few inches of fluff ,but it was really dust on crust. Skied Sat AM again and was completely surprised how good it was . Home area is Seven Springs.

Raining Again today then tonight we transition back to cold weather for a few days.Always a yo yo weather pattern here.

Washington not so great either, our lowest resort hasn't even opened 1 run yet... Thank god Stevens is manageable, but nothing to write home about. I may have to venture up to Baker, I hear they are seeing some snow.
