  1. The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    Just found out my son is going to grad school at Oregon State in Corvallis. Looks like I’ll be skiing Oregon and/or Washington next winter! .
  2. The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    Skied Big Sky 3/30-4/4. What a fantastic mountain! No lift lines. More sick skiing than you could ski in a month. Marx, a double black from the summit tram was epic. Great tree skiing. 18” powder on 4/2. Incredible conditions. Deep base. Trip of a lifetime!! .
  3. The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    Love Royal! Go there at least once a season! Great on a powder day!
  4. The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    Skied Bromley today. What a great medium sized mountain. Conditions were fabulous!. Nice variety of groomed and ungroomed. Nice bumps, nice glades. Longest lift line was 3 minutes!! Very friendly and respectful crowd. Very family oriented. And I got there in 1 hour 20 minutes. Can't beat that!
  5. The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    1 hour line?!? Yikes!!! Does Bromley usually have shorter lines? .
  6. The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    Where should I go tomorrow? Mt. Snow, Bromley, Stratton or Magic? I can get discounted tickets to Mt. Snow, Bromley and Stratton. Magic stopped selling tickets today to limit lift lines to 30 minutes! Where do you think line will be shortest? I figured Sunday lines are bound to be shorter than Saturday? Any advice is much appreciated! I'm also probably skiing solo if anyone wants to meet up?
  7. The King Regains its Throne

    32F with 5.5" down. Sticking to everything. I have to keep going outside to broom snow off of branches, fences, etc. Was heavy, now moderate. Very little to shovel (melting on driveway). My kind of storm!
  8. The King Regains its Throne

    33F with moderate to occasionally heavy snow here. Desperately trying to pull the outer bands NW before they start heading east. 3" down.
  9. The King Regains its Throne

    34 with snow intensity that varies from light to heavy. Some areas within a 10 mile radius of me had 1/2" last night to 4". Very blotchy convective radar. Probably about 2" here so far with 0" on the driveway and the roads. NWS Albany thinks the heavy stuff will be NW of where models have it so they have kept their forecast #'s above model QPF. We shall see soon.
  10. Blizzard 2018 Take II: The Firehose

    Woke up to a snowday and a heck of a paste job. 9" on the ground, but under the trees it's like 2" of slush with 3" of snow on top. Some broken branches and one of my fences fell down from the weight of the snow. If the wind picks up.....yikes!!!!!
  11. Blizzard 2018 Take II: The Firehose

    Crazy heavy with 1/3" on the ground. 34.3F/31. Paste job!
  12. The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    Decided on Big Sky 3/29-4/4 with 5 days of skiing. Hoping for some sunny beers on decks, some powder, some hero spring snow, some hot tubbing and a nice tan.....and some kick ass views!!! Psyched to ski out west again after 31 years!
  13. Blizzard 2018 Take II: The Firehose

    Yeah. Should be an interesting night here. Gotta get some sleep though. Temps quickly heading to 32F where I expect it to stay. I feel like we're cooling more due to the melting effect than wetbulbing?
  14. Blizzard 2018 Take II: The Firehose

    Dumping here. Ground whitened up really fast. 34.9/31F. Big fat flakes!!!
  15. 38/30 here, about 10 miles south of the airport, but it started as snow! Wet bulb 35F. Wasn't expecting snow to start.
