Beaver Bowl

Beaver Bowl was very positively affected by our recent snow and wind. When I was in the Bowl yesterday, snow was just billowing in over its West ridge. The skiing was very good this morning. We have another good forecast for snow tomorrow afternoon and evening. A couple of Monday laps in Beaver Bowl could be just what you are looking for.

A Day Of Extremes

What a crazy day of extremes. This morning was full blown raging winter. We reported 2 inches of new snow and probably received another couple more after report time. As the day wore on, the clouds blew out and we finished with glorious sunny weather. An afternoon Beavers tour was full of sunshine.

My Favorite Movie

A Snowy Forecast

I just went for a nice little skin up to the Summit. It was snowing heavily at mid-mountain as I passed Black Mountain Lodge at 6PM. The Opensnow forecast for tonight and tomorrow still looks good. I think I am going to plan on skiing some North facing trees out in The Beavers on Friday.

That Means It Is Going To Snow

It was a beautiful early Spring-like day. Great skiing was found on Larkspur, Land of the Giants, West Wall, Lower International and lots of other runs. The Black Mountain Lodge deck was in fine form. Skiers and riders were soaking up the sun and enjoying the BBQ. It was a wonderful, sunny day.......which only means one thing. It is about to snow. Look for 2-5 inches of new snow Thursday night and a powder day Friday.

Center Of The Universe

There are some people out there who think the Top of Pali is the "Center Of The Universe." I am one of those people. It is such a special place. The kind of place where friends gather and laugh and have fun. It is also the kind of place where great adventures begin. With access to The Face and The Spine and, now, The Steep Gullies and The Beavers, a lot of great stuff begins here. And the view isn't too bad either.

Different View

While there are a gazillion things I like about the new Beavers and Steep Gullies terrain, one my favorites is taking in all the new viewpoints and perspectives. There are especially cool images of The Steep Gullies. In the bottom photo, a skier is coming out of the Bald Spot with The Steep Gullies prominently visible in the upper right part of the photo. A similar kind of view is visible from Lower Loafer.

Somewhere In The Beavers

Finding the steep and not quite deep somewhere out in The Beavers.
