Just one day but it was oustanding

Got up to Crystal Mountain, WA on Friday, Dec 1. Temps were mid 20s and it was on the tail end of the record breaking precip November we had here in the PNW. Only 1-2 of new but very little pressure over the week and plenty of great lines. The hill was in mid season shape and the snow was primo for WA. Around noon the sun came out and made it one heck of a great first day. Best 1st day in WA in the 25 years I've been skiing.

It's snowing hard in the mountains again today and should be around 3-4 feet of new by Wed. Oh boy!

Do you realize that you already have more days in than probably 30% of the members here? :

Ah, the trials and tribulations of being an instructor. Of course, most of those days were following kids down greens. Only about 5 days teaching blues and blue blacks or free skiing.

Thursday was to be my first day, but I now have to work as someone was so inconsiderate as to have a new baby girl {6 lbs, 12 ounces, 20 inches, Mom, Dad and Baby doing fine} So I may not be able to ski until January.

Day 3 at Loveland was last Saturday. The purple beneath my left big toe seems to be dissolving. My new Head Monster i.m.77's are great - the boots, with some 'reshaping', seem to be okay now. Heading up Friday.

I can't believe nobody gave a big up to Papa Bumpdad.

Congrats on the new addition!

Sounds more and more like a road trip North is where it's at.

Anybody hit Bachelor yet? (I keep hearing the reports from WA, but none from Oregon, yet...oh wait, I think there may have been some Ore. posts a few weeks back, but I ferget).

Congrats bumpdad! Girls are awesome and will always care for the old man.

Now onto the important stuff...baby girl will be skiing you say by January?! OK Dad, have you considered how will she be outfitted? SKIs, boots, bindings (what is that DIN for 6lbs 12oz?) pass...these are now the real important things. GET TO IT! She will be upset if she can't respond in the affirmative with this thread.

3 days at Killington so far. One very mediocre day over thanksgiving weekend, and 2 days this past weekend. This past weekend was surprisingly good considering they were CLOSED last Friday and Saturday (Dec 1-2) due to 50 degree weather and rain.They had about 30 trails open, which still felt pretty crowded but was enough to spread people out a bit and keep things from getting too skiied off.

Hoping to get in 2 more full weekends before a 5-day trip to Brighton and Solitude over MLK. Goal this season is 30 days, but might have a hard time hitting it due to a lot of busy weekends over the holidays the crappy early season we've had in the northeast.

Congratulations bumpdad! Girls are awesome indeed. I have no kids, but love my nieces.

I have only 3 days so far, but things are quickly deteriorating here in Toronto. We have rain and very warm temps for the entier week. What a freaking disaster this weather has become.

5 days, all at Crystal Mt. The storms just keep coming.
post #58 of 89
I have 4 days and 1 night under my belt so far. Dec 1st was my starting day. I was going to head up this weekend but decided to take a weekend off.

While the lower mountain was mostly covered, we still have a long way to go to cover the rocks, cliffs and steep lines on the upper mountain. Have you gotten your fix yet? Its going on mid-december.
Wow, I better brag and brag quick. Skied on 14 trails and 5 lifts at Wisp, Maryland on 12/10 under 45 degree temps and blue sky. The snowmakers shall inherit the Earth.

Four days so far, with the fifth (and first on any natural snow to speak of) coming Thursday. All at Heavenly.
