Skiing MGD With Robbie

Yesterday, it pretty much snowed all day. This afternoon, after a beautiful and easy ride on the Lazy J, Lift Maintenance Manger Rob Ware and I enjoyed some fine snow and turns in the MGD zone in Montezuma Bowl. I am looking forward to this next storm rolling in Thursday night.

Happy First Day Of Spring - 4 F and Snowing

No wonder our snow stays so good and our season lasts from October to June.

Stormy Images

Well, we haven't quite scored the big March snowstorm just yet. We did have some great skiing today with a very deep 3 inches of new snow. Skiing in the Steep Gullies was particularly good. We do appear to have several days of unsettled weather coming. A couple of inches here and a couple of inches there always helps. One of things about the rapidly changing Spring weather that I really like is the images the clouds and snow and sun give us, particularly at sunrise and sunset.

Sunday Fun Day

Kay and I enjoyed a great day off skiing up at The Basin today. First thing in the morning under sunshine and blue skies, we slipped in half a dozen runs on the North Side. No surprise but, we found good skiing on the Spine and The Face. As the clouds rolled in we enjoyed a couple of North Pole hikes and followed that with a ski and hike in the 4th Steep Gully. As we skied a bit more on the North side, snow started falling. We finished the day in Marnie's with friends, a burger and a beer.

.........And it is snowing right now.

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.
