Did you get to the backside?  I was running off of Healy and the stuff above Wanoga...I was riding a pair of waterskis that sometimes rode me.  But fun all around!

It's been a good couple of weeks in the NW that's for sure. I've had 3 blower days in the last 2 weeks. Really getting my powder skills on. But i'm cheating. The tree's on Hood(Meadows) have been DEEEEEEP. And there's more to come. It's supposed to dump tomorrow. I'm totally going to hit up ski bowl tomorrow afternoon/night. Sadly I can't ski on Saturday. But Next Tuesday is looking good.

I hit the local hill (Bogus Basin) on Tuesday and the snow was great! The snow report said 8" but I think it was closer to 12".  A little firm but pliable (i.e not Utah powder....) maybe the best I've seen out here all year. And we're supposed to get what's left of your approaching storm tommorow ( as much as 19" !!)
I'm not usually much of a spring skier but the last 2 years have provided the NW with some spectacular powder days late in the season.

Sweet Bachelor pics!

Even with all this snow, I doubt Ski Bowl will open the Outback. As of last Friday, the log road needed at least 3' more to open. Under the trees was barely covered...important in last stretches to log road. West Wall and Scotty's may be tasty tho.

I had to pole myself across the top of Pine Martin this afternoon.  Decided to call it a day after that.  Where were those pics taken?  I say off of Pine Martin...hubby says off of Red Chair/Leeway Side.  Big bucks involved here.
