The SLT ski lease starts this weekend and I'm headed up there with breadbox & others to ride BC on saturday and sunday. I heard an unconfirmed rumour that jimw is in on the ski lease and headed up this weekend, too. I don't know where we'll be riding yet...

Got out this morning. High ridgetop E/NE winds. Everything exposed facing NE (like top of Hourglass) got its snow stripped badly. Some thick wind slabs (2'+) in weird places like in the trees, but they seem to be bonding okay, but so be careful. I have my kids on Saturday, so won't be partaking...

Oh, and everything is getting tracked so quickly - lots of people out today.

I would wait for more coverage to break in a brand new board. Around K-wood might be okay though.

Thanks, KS - I've been agonizing about it all day and 1/2 wishing that it arrived on Monday so I wouldn't have to make the call. Reread this to steel the nerves. But now I think I'll bring the FR66.

Rode Waterhouse dawn patrol with SLT Joe today, winds were rippin from N-NE at the top transporting a bunch of snow to the leeward sides. 15-18" of superlight freshness in the trees.

God, it feels good to ride POW again !

If you are looking for powder salvation from this cold front coming through with 120mph winds and no moisture you are in for yet another disappointment. :( The only thing that might be worth watching for is some lake-effect snow.

Are you telling me there won't be any decent snow for sliding in the Sierra this weekend? Come on, hall pass secured--throw me a bone.

Look for lake-effect snow that currently is around Mt.Rose. It will shift southward as the wind shifts and maybe hit Heavenly later. Also some wrap-around easterly upslope snow may help the eastern Sierra. I still doubt it will amount to anything more than 6" or so total at the most.

The winds are gone at least.
