Myself, steveo, Larry form Vertical Drop Snowboards and another dropped Waterhouse this morning, started at 5:15am and followed skin track about 3/4 of the way up before it was gone due to new snow. Heavy winds from the west creating wind ridges and loading the bowl big time. I would not head into the Bowl today at all . We dropped the North tree fall line from the top and the snow was epic. kee deep pow, super soft and fast.

Still dumping here in meyers. Winds are howling at 9,000'

Pictures to come once I figure out how!

Jim

close jim,

after hitting the image icon,paste the photo properties link after it, then hit the image icon again so the properties is inside of the two image icons. You only have the one image icon.

Stevo getting the goods on the way down. Too bad work starts at 8:00 or we would consider doubling it this morning.

i think you need to link to the image url too...the webpage should end in a jpg. like this...

http://www.biglines.com/photos/blpic37269.jpg

on a mac you hit control and click on the image and it is opened in a new page. can't remember how to do it on a pc but it's pretty easy.

it's a pain but it works eventually.

way to get some MVD! could be the last pow of the season...i'm green with envy.

too bad it's not colder this time of year or there would still be some for the weekend crowd.
