    All the low angle stuff was incredi-balls. Got first tracks on Pixie, HOM, lower Red Line, and fresh tracks seemingly everywhere. Only about 50 people on the hill so still plenty of untouched until the afternoon. A little crusty/hard under some of the steeper terrain (Tali, Trick, HOM) but Up Your Sleeve, Medium, left side of Black Line, upper half of Broomstick, and lower section of Red Line were worth repeating (think I hit Up Your Sleeve 3-4 times). Could absolutely bomb down with no worries.

    Seemed worthy of a link to this story since so many Cannon skiers posted on here (and elsewhere) about the crazy sky last Saturday. It was so wild, but I didn't realize it was rare enough to be a national news story. https://www.washingtonpost.com/weather/2018/12/05/story-behind-an-incredible-sky-scene-new-hampshire/?fbclid=IwAR3YbB_k2jIsHkLU9Lo7QDXaa8z09HaMxJrvLpwgvXZoNyBPgia12QRZwHE&utm_term=.73c98d2b1ff8

    Mountain is in incredible shape. Did some treks with Rusty and the wife this weekend. Saturday was super soft. Today was more like styrofoam. Mountain has a solid 6-8" base. Never bottomed out or saw bare ground in the tracks. Zeke will be on the couch until tomorrow afternoon.

    Well last Friday I made a pilgrimage to Treehouse. Waited my 1 and 1/2 hours to get my $100 case of beer. I got 6 different kinds. Haze, Julius. Jjjuliusss, Super Sap, Bright and Doppleganger. Only had the Haze and Julius so far. Both great - liked Haze a little more.

    Cold and dry yesterday. I decided to write off trees and ungroomed, brought only the frontside skis, and ran the groomed all day. Groomers were scratchy but still edgeable. An upside to a hard refreeze after rain is that the groomers can't develop ice moguls - it all just stays flat ice! [emoji38] I did one lap on middle Hard which was in better shape than I expected. It wouldn't surprise me if surfaces in the woods were in decent shape. Upper Hard, groomed. IDK if this is rare but it was my first time:

    After last week, a couple 2-4" events back to back will set things up very nicely. Should be some heavy wet stuff too. Won't get us back in the steep woods at Magic but will open most stuff up. Hoping the RGEM is off because Wednesday would mean an icy mess. Going to snow tonight until Thursday night lol Shave off 1/3 imo.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the season despite breaking a couple of ribs. Loads of good skiing, managed to hit a number of powder days, too. My best memory of 2018 would be in November after returning from flying from across the world, getting up at 5:30 am because I couldn't sleep due to time change, making a solid breakfast, and driving up to Wildcat on a whim for a powder day that I didn't even know had happened or was forecast.

    This place needs more pics of kids getting rad - or just having fun! Let’s see ‘em. Here’s a sequence of my 11 year old throwing a 3 off a boulder at Stowe, and another of my 9 year old on Whirlaway at Stowe.

    Yikes, I would think a woodstove would take a lot of extra lube! But if you prefer it, knock yourself out.

    Actually over the mlk weekend the cannonball was down but the tram was running. They even ran it that Tuesday when wind closed the cannonball. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports

    Someone needs to start a running 2018/19 Attitash thread. Just being honest and not being judgemental, that place has been 100% off my radar for about 25 years and I kind of assumed it was on it's way out considering the available options to the east and west. But all of a sudden there seems to be lots of reports and mentions popping up on this site. All of which are positive (except the triple chair issue). So I guess I'd just like to see more of the running hype/love/appeal of the place. Maybe change my preconceived and uninformed perceptions.

    Change of Plans! Saturday: Cannon Sunday: Ragged

    It was due to the second half of the storm, Cannon got screwed during the initial setup due to wind direction. Once the winds swung around, Cannon cranked it up. Before Cannon opened on Wednesday, there was considerably more snow to the south of Cannon. Cannon and Wildcat do better with different storm setups, they have very different aspects and nearly by topography features. Ideal for Cannon is E/NE wind and S wind is game over. A Gulf of Maine bomb often means Cannon gets the most in the northeast. I am not as familiar with Wildcat's specifics but I often find that a big storm at Cannon doesn't necessarily mean a big storm at Wildcat and vice versa. Loon seemed to do well with this system, they do well with the southerly to northeast swing. So they picked up snow at the start of the storm that Cannon didn't get and then kept it cranking.

    Welcome. Not sure about how it is for watching the game but the Magic bar is really nice. Good beer selection.

    Just transferred and started my 7 day dry hop on my IPA called Dead Wrong. Extremely hoppy NE style but without the haze which I just don't get as a homebrewer.

    It is hard to imagine right now, but you're world will be very different in 6 months. The social scene in college is very different. Once you've graduated, all of the sudden the difference between 22 and 30 starts to look trivial. At the risk of sounding like an old man (I'm in my mid 30s)... it's time to start thinking about life after graduation. You won't be meeting people at class or in the dorms. As far as ski area bars go... there are a few options out there. Killington has it's fair share complete with Joey from Jersey and his douchebaggery. The MWV has a very different scene

    Crotched was surprisingly good last night. They were blowing loads of snow and did a great job with the surfaces all over the hill. A vast improvement since Sunday.

    Great afternoon today at the wa with the family. Good base And they were making a ton across the mountain. Going to head up with my son tomorrow morning likely. If the weather continues to cooperate they should be close to 100% in a week or so

    I'm having a hard time coming to terms with this. Everything changes. Attitash definitely changes for the better. I'm not so sure about Wildcat. I can't imagine what the Cat is like under Vail administration.

    I'm sure we've all seen the news stories about this from last Thursday. I know I lot of us have been having personal conversations about it. Especially since many of have plans to be up there in the coming weeks. I haven't posted about it because the news reports have been incomplete and the social media reports have been unreliable. Finally, here is the very detailed (yet heartbreaking) full report from MWAC. https://www.mountwashingtonavalanchecenter.org/4112019-avalanche-fatality-raymond-cataract/?fbclid=IwAR1nl1DF6VtZqGBwors-8zkKXGakeDSHcsCo6E-Z68AFR3baKaVRXzBsuHA I'm just gonna say 2 things: 1) These rangers and first responders are absolutely amazing. Their unique set of calculated experience and decision-making, combined with their pure courage and humanity is pretty damn unique. I don't know how they juggle being so clinical about their discussions while obviously being so emotional about their commitment. 2) Let's not turn this into an armchair QB thread. Every single social media platform and ski forum has already done that. We're all just recreational skiers. Some with more or less BC experience. We're all happy to be enjoying some late season fun. Take the lessons learned from this report, there are a lot of them. They span from the technical aspects of BC skiing, to the mental aspects of decision making, to the emotional aspects of ultimate loss. There is lots to gain from absorbing all of that, there is little to gain from critiquing it.

    My favorite are Haze and Green. The husband insisted we spend a kid-free morning after a wedding waiting in line for beer. It's good beer, but I'm not sure it's worth the effort...

    It's late season, if he's wrong he's got all summer for people to forget. It's a low risk haymaker.

    Fair enough, consider your category changed. But seriously is there ever really a situation (in any aspect of life) where 99% certainly exists? And if so, where it gets treated differently than 100%? What exactly is your standard for "borderline"? 95%, 80%, 50%? . In this example Wildcat and Cannon and Jay all had pretty equal probabilities of being able to operate. Certainly none were at 99% confidence. They each made different calls and each had different outcomes. One chose not to try and may or not have been right about it, one chose to try and it turned out well, one chose to try and failed. Nothing inherently right or wrong about the decision making. Just an interesting question about how one plays the odds for themselves and their customers.

    The wa skied great this morning! Arrived around 9 and left at noon, just as it was starting to get busy. Ski to lift all morning. Ralph's and conifer were the picks of the day. Buttery packed pow across the mountain. My son was ripping it up!
