Looks good Bob, 35 degrees last night at my house 2250 ft.       Took a pair of ski's in yesterday for new bindings.  A very anticipatory time of year.

OT, but does anyone else find it amusing that the State of Wyoming is copyrighting their webcam photos?

I70 is closed both directions over Vail Pass and through the tunnels.

It's still golf season!  I showed up at the course Sunday morning (28 degrees wind chill) about 9:30 AM and had the course to myself (almost).  When asked by the pro why I was braving the elements, I said "there is no bad weather, just bad equipment!"

That's a powder day in New England!

Fat skis would let you float over the rocks!

Winter storm alert!

For the Big Island over 12000 feet.

Folks ski these conditions using a car on the road to the observatory as a lift.

I had a Ski Hawaii T-shirt back in the 70's when I was stationed in Pearl Harbor.  Maybe I can get one on ebay?  I never made it to the snow line in the 4 years I was there.

Doesn't that elevation do something to your clarity of thought?  I read something about that a while back.

It probably does.  Lots of person-to-person variation.  I did a lot of work debugging software at the top of Mt Haleakala on Maui, which is only 10000 feet.  Everytime someone did something dumb, they would make the excuse "altitude brain".  I only knew one guy who really seemed impaired, though.  He really suffered every night.

 

Another 2000 feet on the Big Island probably makes a big difference, though.  I remember reading that most of the visiting experimenters work from a remote control room at lower altitude.

I used to work the overnight shift at Keystone's Outpost restaurant at 11,000 feet. Our cognitive abilities were definitely impaired. Of course that was probably just due to all the pot we smoked...

Mike, actually closer to another 4000 feet on Big Island. About 13900 feet.

I think this might be the only place you could ski in a hurricane.

You would have to be a pretty serious deep tracks junkie to do that.

I was lucky enough to spend last weekend in Winter Park/Denver visiting family. It snowed a good part of the day Sunday and a bit more on Monday morning. Here's a photo of our hike not too far from WP. This was on Sunday (Oct. 12), elevation about 11,070. The middle and tops of the runs at WP got a bit of snow as well. Don't melt now!!!

Our Indian summer came to an abrupt end.  Mt Bachelor is white top to bottom.   We hiked up the neighboring Tumalo Mt.

You guys are all incredibly irritating. It's been in the 70's in NE for days now. You know it's bad when your friends who don't ski talk about how great the weather is...
