  1. snowreport: mon feb 17, 2020 howdy all huge puffy clouds that rolled thru with lite snow and sunshine peaking thru all day. it was nice comfy temps and snow was better than yesterday. ed's run was very bumpy and it seems like the groomers did not grind it down and they did not groom some runs on the front. the sun softened the snow when it was on it and the clouds kept it from really breaking down. snow was ok and carved good, but not the best. made some good turns and today didn't seem too crowded as there were hardly any young kids. tomorrow should be better as the weekend warriors go back to work and the kids go back to school. forecast is some colder nights and some warmer days mid week... kinda of a late start this morning cause the snowbus lost its breaks near the top by the first parking lot on the cut off... had to walk down... rode the 165amt from 9 till 2...
  2. snowreport: sun feb 16, 2020 howdy all again expecting huge crowds and with 3 inches new on the summit I brought the softies, but never made to the summit. the lines on chair 1 was ridiculous so I did not bother to go up. made laps on chair 2 in the singles line. a little dusting on the soft groom and it got chewed up fast with the huge crowds. high overcast and some sun trying to peak thru and a slight breeze made for a comfy day. just taking it easy on the softies and cruised around and carved a little. wanted to stay longer, but my left foot was getting sore so called it early. the crowds on chair 1 never thinned out, oh well... rode the 152wfs from 9 till 11:30...
  3. howdy crackaddict please don't be one of those straight lining fools...
  4. snowreport: sat feb 15, 2020 howdy all huge crowds first thing this morning. high overcast and the fog is closer to the summit. I stayed on chair 2 most of the morning cause the lift line on chair1 was huge. the groomers was good, but a bit icy in the morning and a lite dusting of dry snow, the lightly skied off snow felt chewed up and dry. rode the factory prime cause it makes tight turns and it is easy to stop and control on these busy days. kinda of a weird day as it was busy, but there were times the runs were empty and times when they all went down at once. did a few chair 1 rides about noon when everyone goes to lunch and the lift lines was not too bad. today carved good, just trust the edge and the board does its thing. I wasn't going to stay long, but the carving was good and the crowds didn't bother me and I seemed to be in a happy bubble... the factory prime felt like a stiff blade after riding the 171ts coiler the last 3 days... rode the 157fp from 9 till 2...
  5. snowreport: fri feb 14, 2020 howdy all happy valentines day to all you ladies... in town this morning looking south it was partly sunny and looking to the north there was a dark cloud over the big and looked like it was lightly snowing. the cloud stayed just above the summit and vis was kinda good. the groomers wasn't as good as yesterday and it was bumpy on ed's and other runs. carved good early then got chewed up fast cause it was kinda busy for a Friday and I think people are coming for this weekend and the Canadians will be here all week. I will try to go up everyday and at least make a few runs. I will try to bite my tongue and not get upset and leave when it gets too crazy. the wind started to pick up about noon and it was getting a little chilly. seems like the groomers just skimmed the surface and did not even it out... made a few good turns... forecast is snowy weekend then warm end of week... rode the 171ts from 9 till 1...
  6. howdy ExcelsiorTheFathead good to see you back in action... beautiful groomers... and nice turns...
  7. snowreport: thu feb 13, 2020 howdy all cloudy above the big and clear to the southwest and foggy just on the summit. caught the later snowbus which is only half hour later just to avoid you know who. anyways, today was really good groomers and it was good all day. carved hard all morning and by noon the sun comes out and it is blue sky sunshine and the snow gets a little softer and more carvable. it was nice temps and just a bit warm, but mostly it was comfy and never felt too cold or too warm. the snow only got lightly skied off so stayed good all day. it was beautiful with the deep blue sky in the background and the snow on the trees in the foreground. carving was great and I was doing the dredman elbow to elbow turns... today was one of the better days... rode the 171ts from 9 till 4...
  8. snowreport: wed feb 12, 2020 howdy all sorry, but I am going to rant... kinda tired to listen to angry rick bitch'n about everything every day. we ride the snowbus up and we ride the chair lift up and when we ride he will wait for me as I try to slow it down to try to lose him. same crap every day, what to do. puts me in a funk and I am tired of it. then I go to the summit house to take my break and a stupid girl brings her board in and hits my table and my coco spills on my jacket and I am like what the **** and puts me in a more ****ed up funk and the summit house is full of out of towners who don't know ski etiquette. now we have the three day weekend and the Canadians have the whole week coming up... crap... sorry for the rant... this morning started with a high overcast way above the big and groomers was ok as it was a little wet and stiff. the coiler did good job and held a great edge and carved hard all morning. the snow got chewed up and a little soft later in the day. took it easy on my last hour and tried to forget what a shitty day it was... carving was good... nice comfy temps... rode the 171ts from 9 till 2...

  12. snowreport: tue feb 11, 2020 howdy all got fog? … one of the heaviest thickest fog day I have seen here. it was one chair vis at the bottom of ed's run all the way up first thing in the morning. the night lights was no help, but it did help when it cleared a little. guessing where I am going and at least I know where things are and hoping nothing funny out of the ordinary. so survival mode and when you could see a little terrain in front make some turns and hope for the best. about an inch plus of new dry snow over a nice smooth groom made it a super fun day. the not being able to see made it challenging and fun. the groom was good and the new snow was nice and dry. it wasn't that cold, but the thick fog did not rime up the goggles. carve when you can see and cruise when it's foggy. snowing off and on and the fog stayed low and very slowly rises. got up thinking I am not going cause I got a sore throat and I almost wasn't going to go up, but got ready and felt better so off I went and I am glad I did... a super fun day on the softies... carved hard... not much people... yeah!... wanted to stay longer, but had a haircut... rode the 159sg soul from 9 till 1...
  13. howdy dan I am not one to give advice, but I rode with dan when he was in whitefish and he had good form, but it looked like he was trying too hard and not riding the board. when you decamber a board and ride the given sidecut the turns should flow and it should look and feel effortless. your body should also follow and it should also be flowing. I know we did not have the best conditions and condition is everything. it is when you are fighting the board and conditions are not the best is when you get hurt... my back used to hurt, but now that the nerves are dead it no longer hurts... haha...
  14. snowreport: mon feb 10, 2020 howdy all looked like it might be a sunny day, but soon gets cloudy. vis was good and snow was really good. wasn't in the best mood cause I am coming down with a sore throat. took it easy early and ended riding hard. the coiler 165cc kept surprising me, it is a soft board and held an edge when I thought it couldn't. today's snow was much better than yesterday and a better board would have been more fun, but I did not have the energy. clouds rolled thru and lighting would get flat at times and some sun peaks thru now and then. wanted to stay all day, but the old body said no more... made some good turn and was a really fun day... rode the 165cc from 9 till 2...
