Miracle March man! Maybe you'll get one. You always are chasing that next deep day. This morning would have been a 5* powder day at the Boat IMO. The stashes I found were super deep. If I could have gotten first chair and gotten 3-4 runs of legit untracked, it would have been pretty epic. But I ...

Town in general seems to be crowded besides the festival people. So it's been pretty crowded with the festival crowd filtering in (from the front range). Mountain gets congested from like 9:45-12 then it filters out. I'll lap Thunderhead if it's crowded. It never really gets busy and I know some ...

Working the AM shift right now. Definitely hurts sitting this one out, but I'll find some freshies after work. Then I'm off for the weekend and got a ticket to the bluegrass festival happening up here so I'm stoked. ...

Tahoe is definitely boom or bust. I might fly down to Reno soon with some unused airline credit I have to burn by March 17. Sounds like you hit it right though. ...

Seen a few for sale here and there, but yeah, they got expensive. I bought soon as they went on sale so I made out alright. Should be a fun weekend. We just hired another guy at the ski shop so hopefully that means I can sneak a few trips in. I got airline credit to burn before March 17 so I mig...

Beaver Creek and some others got dumped on. Steamboat did not. I finally figured out the skis I wanna buy for my daily drivers. Just gotta find them for sale now. Blizzard Peacemakers. They are exactly what I want and need. You coming up for Wondergrass?...

I wear a helmet pretty much everyday. It's not just you, but everyone else on the mountain you gotta worry about. Not to mention, it's just easier to wear a helmet IMO. Goggles work so much better with a helmet than a beanie. Keeps my head warmer than a beanie. You can get a pretty decent he...

Ski'd Keystone today and found surprisingly nice snow in North Bowl for a few laps. You can find good stuff around 11:30-2:30 before it turns to complete mush. Miracle March baby. Miracle March! Gotta believe. ...

I'd get some 170-175 skis. 90-100mm in waist. I'll keep an eye out on Boulder Craigslist. Bindings will need to be mounted to fit your boot most likely, so finding a boot is a good first step. Though you can find a lot of skis with demo bindings that adjust to different boot lengths. ...

I got the Hero Session, which is the cube. Memory depends on SD card, but I bought a relatively cheap one and it's held a lot of videos. Battery life is good, but it will want to shut off if it gets cold like phones do while skiing. I take it off my helmet or chest mount and keep it warm in my pocke...

They released an advisory discouraging even locals traveling in the area. That's when I pulled the plug and turned around. It's raining up there now and turning everything into a mess. Still got the day off today, so taking it easy and gonna make some slushy laps at Steamboat....
