this morning's ascent.

my girl taggin it today in the bc. yep... we've still got snow.

the conditions this morning were pretty darn good, but much more humid today w/ fog and snow at elevation. the dew point has come up and it's getting downright wet out. still snowing on the mountain, but getting heavy, especially down low.

still not sure what this BIG storm's gonna do on sun/mon. gonna be tight w/ temps for precip in the form of snow. either way, it's coming down bigtime. let's hope for the best.

jay has come in at just under 34 degrees,33.8 just after 1pm today at summit, so assuming most of snowpack has been affected and is somewhat saturated at this point. looks like temps shot up quickly around 830 this morning. many locations now well above freezing.

tomorrow may be fairly wet and sloppy...

coyne86 - how did jay's snowpack hold up today w/ temp rise?

Well you're assumption was right. The snow was real wet, prime for a snowball fight. Pretty much everything is decently tracked out and it proved to be difficult to plow through this uberly packed powder. Super fun though. The glades reminded me of those concrete snake runs that were so popular in the skateboard scene in the 80's. I didn't trek out of bounds anywhere today, but the snow will be heavy, but again its April. Heading out to Big Jay for some turns tomorrow morning...

here's a good look at things as they stand right now...

looks like it's n. vt, sugarloaf or the chic chocs for the goods this spring. everywhere else is pretty thin, but this noreaster could just UNLOAD on us.

So the final (?) plan has me heading up tonight to tag Jay w/ ikkin and co tomorrow. We're hoping to get snowed in. :) PM me if you'll be up that way, but I dunno if I'll have any access to the internet after this afternoon, so if you don't catch me by then, DOH!

Shep

today was wet and foggy, we didn't get out. it was still snowing at sunrise this morning and things are freezing back up right now at 11pm saturday night. tomorrow conditions could be challenging at first until things soften up, which shouldn't take much. then the storm rolls in. tomorrow afternoon could be real good and obviously monday morning.

Hey all! Hope everyones spring is off to a good start. Just wanted to let people know about something sweet we got going on in the NEK. If you haven't been by or heard yet, the Peter Glen in St Johnsbury is no longer! Yaay! Well thats not the sweet news. In its wake it left a nice vacant building, plenty of merchandising racks, and a void that needed to be filled (or more like improved upon). Cut to the chase, Kingdom Outdoors is in the building. I lucked out and scored a full time job there. We're owned by two rad doods who both have managed the Outdoor Gear Exchange in Burlington for years, and are trying to fill that void in the NEK. We're based more or less off the OGE and we are doing cosignment.

We will be having our 'GRAND OPENING SALE' the tomorrow (Friday May 18th). 7 PM on Friday we have a friend coming in to do a slide show of some kayaking (I believe in the Himilaya?) We'll have some free stuff for those that come and FOOD. It'll for sure be a good time, so come out and support/check out you're new local shop and bring you friends and family.

We will have boards and skis in the winter, and don't worry I'm trying to brew something up for us splitters (maybe rentals so we can work as missionaries).

saw this on Backcountrymag.com... It looks like everyone knows these guys are a$$hats and don't represent BC skiers and riders in general. I think they are gonna get the book thrown at them, and I don't think ANYONE is going to try to defend their actions.
