Resorts will begin to open as the 2009/2010 season rolls out.

Did you ski today?

Where did you ski and how was it?

Yes.

It was okay.  I skinned up an area outside of Marble, CO. The snow cover is still a little thin. Up high was probably good but I had a late start and had to head down before getting all the way up.

Plan on going out again tomorrow.

Lost count of how many days I am at already.

Not today, but got my first turns yesterday at Wolf Mtn., UT.  Not to be confused with Wolf Creek, CO.
It was a nice strip of total machine made snow.

No!  The weather yesterday ah today has been  'clear and still' (as in clear up to your butt and still falling) and I did not get to go. 

I hate actually being sick.

No, but I did take a Hobie Cat out for a while.

I always chuckle how so many want to ski the WROD, but when things are REALLY good, in late March and April, they've put away their skis and have their golf clubs out. Oh well.

Yes.

It was a deep powder day at Stevens Pass.  The whole mountain is open.

I was up there too.  There was definitely some nice snow to be found, for sure.

Yes, at Santa Fe.  It had it's moments, but it was seriously thin in places.  The weather outlook is not good - the ski area will not open for Thanksgiving.

Got my first turn (singular it was the bunny hill at Bretton Woods) of the season 2 weeks ago but the only skiing for me today was in my head.

Yes, Took the kids (3 & 5) and wife to Boreal (Tahoe Area) today and had a great time, bluebird after 8 inches of snow...did lap after lap with my 3yr old...feeling a bit sore.

I skied yesterday (too early to ski today, yet) and I've skied 7 of the last 9 days.  Baker had great powder and I got my first face shots of the year.  They reported 11" of new this morning, but will open with a bunch more than that since it's snowing like crazy up there.  99" of base at Pan Dome.

After last year it's very fulfilling to gloat.

If by "ski", you mean sit home and cry because theres no snow, then yes, I "skied" today.
post #15 of 30
Nope, it's going to be at least a few more weeks :(
post #16 of 30
Yes, yesterday at Wolf Creek. Conditions were surprisingly good for a 30-40 inch base, with pockets of untouched snow in the Alberta side. They have the whole mountain open but there's a lot of landmines around. A friend had an encounter with a hidden tree stump, and we ended up not skiing today.

Yes, PCMR,one run open the WROD 
post #18 of 30
Yes.

Just clunking around on Teton Pass.  We skinned for about an hour (gaining only about 4-500 feet of elevation) and then skied back down the trail to the car.  We just did a couple of little side forays to ski a few turns of powder.  Mostly, it was just exercise on snow.

It was great.

Plus, it was snowing hard by the time we quit and it still is four hours later.

Life is good.

I was going to do that too.  I would up going to Towogetee and skiing some pretty good powder shots.  We did two laps and I was back by 3 pm.  We are having an early Thanksgiving tonight.  I can't wait.  I'm so hungry!  I shot some video and will try and post a TR soon.

Made it out again today and it was good. I skied and hiked from 9am to 2pm. The longest day I have put in on the skis yet this year.



I will be going back tomorrow for more. I have to say I kind of like the lifts not being open. It definitely cuts down on the crowds.

Enjoyed the few runs open at A-Basin this morning from 8:30 to 11am. The crowds doubled and chased me away. Great conditions on the groomed runs. Enduring the WRODs until more terrain opens. 40 ski days already this season. The extra bonus of living in Summit County Colorado.

It's as if Washington and B.C. are getting all the snow in the world right now. It's the Olympic karma.

What's happening in Europe so far?

I thought about Togwotee bit didn't really have the time.  I love skiing up there, so I'm officially jealous.

I'm going up on the Pass early tomorrow morning and then heading out of town for Thanksgiving.  Things are looking good on the Pass right now:

35 mile bike ride yesterday with lots of wind, skied today on the WROD at Breck with Bags.  Great day.  Hoping I'm getting set up for ESA at the Basin/

I can't believe Bob is jealous of my skiing!  It was my first time "skiing" Togwotee, I thought the skinning would be farther and harder.  I have been up there on sleds several times and I used to go kite skiing up there until I decided that gravity always works.  The skiing was much better than I expected.  One of our friends hit Targhee yesterday with his son.  I will call him and see how that was.  I might skin out to Mt Ellie and back later today.  It turns out I have my first training day at The Village on the 30th.  Yippie!  It's ON!

Mount Rose Saturday and Sunday.  Only one run open but at least it gets the legs working and good for a few drills on Sl skis

Great photo, that looks like a good time.

After a small storm on Sunday, I went for a skin tour looking for some powder to ski.  Nothing really looked safe, so I returned to the car with only a couple of sketchy turns.  I did get this picture looking across the valley at Snowbasin though.  Should be open Thursday.



I went back up to Wolf Mountain again today.  My friend Brady shot this short clip for me.

Thanks,
JF
