    Looks like it will be a while if we even get something to ride here on the eastside. So bad Id rather travel via airline than make the 7 hour one way trip.
    Shastas looking good but does its best weather wise to freeze up when Im open to the 12 hour one way drive

    So, if you were going to fly somewhere in the lower 48 and west of the Mississippi

    Where? And specifically where

    Like, where in Colorado?

    Whistler would work too

    well, it hasn’t been too bad here in CO! Looks like a pattern change could be in the works as well, finger crossed!! I tour and travel all over the state chasing the white wave. Most places have a decent base but not much overall fresh just some specific spots. Im in fairplay right in the center of the state at 10,000′. I was just down in the northen san juan / silverton area. Pretty thin and crazy warm but great stability for feb 🙂 The northern mtns around flattenridge (breck) seem to have almost the most snow this season. Found a fresh 14″ on a ne @ treeline yesterday. Monarch has been doing pretty well this yr. wolfies, cb, roaring fork valley not so good 🙁 All we need is some good storm activity and it will be on again! Just beware or our sweet CO persistant layers/ slabs when it does as the dragon will be awakening…

    But hard to beat the different zones here in co for snow. The conditions vary greatly from north to south, but we have many spots to choose from!

    Been to Jackson a lot in the last ten years. Love it, but want something different. Same with Utah

    Monarch CO area does have a lot of snow. Did Steamboat, Jackson, Targhee, Big Sky, SLC last week. Jackson had the most coverage with Steamboat close. I’d say fly to Montrose and explore the Wolf Creek, Silverton, Monarch areas

    I always liked flying into Albuquerque and driving up to Wolf Creek. Stop off in Santa Fe for a night and some mexican food. But Tex, if you want to fly somewhere, i’m up for a surf trip!

    I been thinking about that too. I’d love to hit up some warm reef that’s not crowded. Four to six feet. Ummmmm

    Wolf is going to go very very big in the next 48 hrs. ABQ -> chile verde -> pow -> hot spring -> pow -> chile verde -> hot spring -> pow (let that CD skip for a while)… Do it.

    Yep. Colorado. 100%

    now, I go on call for the next two weeks. Dooh.

    I will be there for the Silverton Splitfest and will probably try to roll out at least 3-4 days in advance
