  1. howdy just had to say it... how lazy you gotta be... get the sticky snow in there and more pain in the butt...
  2. snowreport: thu jan 23, 2020 howdy all no friends on powder day... sorry guys... it was drizzling in town when I left the house this morning. it looked foggy, but it was just the snow and vis was not that bad. did a couple runs on chair 2 and there was an inch plus over groom then waited on chair 1. did a toni matt then a couple down the face then took a break. went down the chair 7 towers a couple times then went to chair 11 and did a couple runs. the backside was nice and soft and no rime. the frontside had a little rime early, but my last run on the frontside it started to rime on the top and by the time I got mid way down I had to take my goggles off and I was soaking wet, the snow was wet and stiff and foggy, it wasn't fun. forecast for tomorrow and the next few days doesn't look good. summit highs of 30 degrees and village temps of 36 degrees and lots of precept, rain/snow. i'll go and check it out if it is not raining hard in town in the morning... today was a fun powder day... I hope the WTF ers had fun... rode the 152wfs from 9 till 1...
  3. howdy yee haa… need um quick like... anybody with old school o.g. bolts for o.g. madd or know the optimal length? in mm? thanks, i'm thinking M6 x 16mm... any experts?...
  4. snowreport: wed jan 22, 2020 howdy all as I got to the mountain it was lightly snowing bordering on icy rain and thought it was going to be a rimy day. there was a couples inches of new snow over groom and it was nice and smooth. it snowed off and on all morning and there was a little more snow on the summit. it was carvable in the morning then it go tougher later so took it easy. dredman and me tried to find the elusive shred gruumer to see what he was up to. dredman got to try shred's grey 178 desperado with hardboots and I tried his coiler 157 slice also with hardboots. it was not ideal as those boards are more for softboots. johnasmo also dropped by and tried the desperado. it was fun to just hang out and take it easy. shred and Cuban are staying right next to chair3 and it was good groomers and no push piles of new snow. was fun day just hanging out... forecast is warmer temps the next few days... will see what happens... rode the 171turnstub from 9 till 3...
  5. snowreport: tue jan 21, 2020 howdy all classic big mountain fog from the top of chair 2 on up and thick at the summit and it was all day. really good groomers on chair 2 and the frontside. today's crew Cuban, johnasmo, rick and me. ripping all morning till about 1pm then lunch at hellroaring (thanks Cuban). the groomers was nice and just soft enough to really hold an edge. today was fun... snow was getting wet and a little stiff at 2pm... rode the 172nfce from 9 till 2...
  6. snowreport: mon jan 20, 2020 howdy all what a difference a day makes. today was nice and sunny and a tad bit icy groomers in the morning then the sun made it really good. it got better as the day went on. riding with the crew, Cuban, Dan, Johnasmo, Rick and me. today was fun and it is great when you can see. everybody went their own way after 1pm and I went to the baselodge to get lunch cause I was going to stay all day. went back to chair 2 and did some laps and the super high overcast starts to build about 2:30pm and the lighting gets flat and I was getting tired so called it at 3pm... it was great to meet dan and I hope your train is on time... today wasn't so busy being mlk day... today was good groomers and a fun crew... rode the 165amt from 9 till 3...
  7. snowreport: sun jan 19, 2020 howdy all what a weird day... starts off classic big mountain fog halfway up then it starts to push it's way down and the inversion tries to set-up. last night the humid fog or light misty rain made an icy crust about half inch or less. the snow underneath was good and when the icy crust gets skied off it gets mixed in with crunchy marbles of ice. the fog is moving up and down with clear pockets and thick fog. not the best day and mixed with huge crowds it was time to call it early... I hope it gets better, but the forecast is warmer temps so well see what happens. 35 degrees tomorrow then 40 degrees and by the weekend 45 degrees... will it be spring skiing?... sorry guys... WTF2020 day 2... the radar looks like a big blob is being pulled up from the southwest... more rain?... rode the 165amt from 9 till 11:30...
  8. howdy this just posted today... wonder what sonic carver looks like? seems like a tall cookie...
  9. howdy bc1 could be interested for a friend... I will let him know about this board...
  10. snowreport: sat jan 18, 2020 howdy all a grey humid morning and I was worried that it might be a short day from the rime build up, but it was cold enough and the light snow was on the dry side. it was lightly snowing all morning and it should snow thru the night. well, it was nice to see Cuban again and meet dan from Portland and who knows where shred was. ed's run had the worst ridges in the seams and the snow was soft from yesterdays new snow. hope it doesn't snow too much tonight so we get a better groom. today is the first day of WTF2020 and it was a fun day riding with Cuban, dan, johnasmo, rick and me... the weekend crowds were crazy busy and best to do short carves and keep your head on a swivel... again the classic big mountain fog on the top half and getting lower... time to call it... rode the 165amt from 9 till 1...
  11. howdy what did I tell you about ebay links... this is why we should keep ebay links off the classifieds and over priced stuff on this fourm should be called out too... no names, but there is a few...
  12. snowreport: fri jan 17, 2020 howdy all did not expect 3 inches in town this morning. I was going to bring the 159 sg soul, but got up late and didn't have time to put the bindings on. yeah I know should have done it last night. well worked out ok cause brought the 152wfs and it was a fun day. an inch plus of heavy cream over groom on ed's and did two runs. then did a couple down the face and the snow was on the heavier side and a lot of work then took a short break then did a few more runs. it was hard work down the front so went to the backside and it was really good. did a couple down black bear into Hollywood and it was really good soft pow. I never go into Hollywood, but it was fun. the backside was way better and going home on my last run the front was bumped up firm. the sun came out for a little while around 10am then a huge cloud passed thru then the sun comes out about noon and as I was leaving it was blue sky sunshine. the wind was blowing in town... a lot of snow on the trees on the big must have been blown off last night... the summit had a good breeze all day... forecast for tomorrow is some snow later in the afternoon... welcome WTF ers… chair 2 9am sharp... sorry dave I missed you wed and fri... rode the 152wfs from 9 till 1...
  13. howdy dan Saturday is forcasted to have 50% precip and none on Sunday and Monday. weekend is always busy and it is a three day weekend so it could be really crazy with the Canadians too. carving gets tricky with huge crowds. sometimes softboots on weekends is a good idea. bring the carver, but be careful... looking forward to meet you and the wtf boys...
  14. snowreport: thu jan 16, 2020 howdy all super high overcast and a little humid and a bit warmer with just over an inch over groom. just a bit creamy and the push piles gets bumpy. early was good cause you could cut through the new snow. was tired and hungry so called it at 1pm and as I am going down the mountain the sun comes out and looking back at the mountain it is blue sky sunshine, another beautiful day... was mostly on chair 2... was an ok carving day... I really need to rest... oh yeah!, the snow on the trees with the sun on it looks awesome even downlow it is all white... rode the 171turnstub from 9 till 1...
  15. howdy shred desperado... it needs to be in montana… it's a cowboy thing... the 159 would have been better... for me... haha... will be cool to see it...
