Maybe we could crowd-fund a purchase?  How many EpicSkiers will it take to raise $1.2M ?  (Maybe 12,000 ???)

Count me out.

 

I'm going to have to go ahead and just say no to that "investment."

Here is what I do.

Saturday skiday.

The pause that refreshes.

Hot action in the slushies. About noon stickies arrive and the fun was done.
On a side note I heckled Jacques from the lift. He was sporting a vintage Marker onesie. It was fabulous Yellow with Red accent. I can appreciate ski fashion. Now if he only had some poles.
:-)

Great photo's!  Today was super fun at Bachelor!   I am now uploading a 35 minute have a beer or two and watch Jacqumentry!   Woo-Tang is for the children!
BTW that was a solid yellow Bogner.  A sweet suit it is!  One may see that suit as I ski in it as someone did some video with me today too!  Gonna be a few day for that one though.

Have you never seen a Jacqumentry?   Time to loose your virginity!   Get your refreshments ready!

It's been a good ski year.   But at Crystal Mountain, the season ends with a whimper, not with a bang.

Epic Ski has slowed to a crawl, but the PNW and Mt. Bachelor are still workin' it until May 28th!   Yesterday was fun and here is a bit of proof!

post #687 of 706

Last day at Baker was a week ago and folks were still getting OB powder turns:

 

And it was last day at Stevens Pass today.  Not a beauty of a day, but lots of people and more than enough snow.

Ha ha! Too funny.

4" at Bachelor overnight with another half a foot or more expected throughout today. Pretty crazy, and I've loved it, but I'm kind of ready to be done with his epic winter. Some sunny and warm days would be nice. Wahhh, poor me, having to endure another pow day!

Wished I'd known you were at Stevens yesterday. I was skiing from about 10 to 1. Felt like a I got a full day's skiing in; lift lines were longer than I expected at first, then disappeared as everybody seemed to go in for lunch and change into their goofy pond-skim costumes. Also I saw a lot of people who look like they hadn't been on the slopes since opening day.

BTW, Alpental will be open the next 2 weekends.

Yes, I'm feeling the same way.  Just give us some sun!
