Says the guy who lives an hour, hour and a half from mount hood? Dood you don't even need a jet.

I think that living that close sometimes becomes more of a tease than anything.  Life still gets in the way of going up there as much as I would like.  That is why I have to plan a trip to make sure I really get to ski.

Cute kids. Being able to drop everything when it's time to get the goods is special. It doesn't matter whether it's to jet off or get to the local hill.

LCC is as accessible as your local ski hill no matter where in the country you live. You can see its snowing on the webcam at alta at 5PM as the lifts lcose. Check the local weaather radar to confirm that this is indeed a big one. Schedule the flight that night. Fly out at 6AM, and start skiing by noon the next day.



I usually check the snow reports in the morning and hop on the private jet.  I then save money by renting a compact car instead of the pricey SUV.  You do what you got to do.

Some powder, some suncrust & didn't hit any rocks .

 It was good, but I am sure yesterday was better.

Nice stoke. Thanks for the report. I am going out sunday morning. Looks like coverage is pretty solid with the dense snow. Should be a good one.
