I've had days that I could totally empathize with the Saint Bernard in this clip!

I'm taking my new to me all weather camper up to Meadows this weekend (leaving tonight) and spending the weekend. If anyone is going up to Meadows, let me know. Not the best conditions right now, but what the heck.

Bought a pass at Meadows this year. For the last 7 years or so my wife and I spent all our time skate skiing and I haven't been on my downhill planks for so long I'm wondering how easily it'll come back. For the next couple weeks I'm at home nursing my wife back to health after a total hip replacement a few days ago. But after that rain or shine I'm planing on skiing a few times a week.

Now we just need some storms!!!

Thanks for the offer, we'll be headed home tomorrow.
Just talked with Bob and Kate Olsen who are up at the mountain and the sun is shining! Why aren't you guys up there?

So far, it hasn't been a great ski season as far as snow is concerned-I hope it dumps soon....

Oh man do we need snow - rocks everywhere, even blended into the groomers so until you note where they are, you're just riding through chocolate chips in places. The park is hammered but they're sure trying to keep it interesting.

yesterday afternoon -

Monday was good but variable... still we did manage to find some pow. The sunny side was warm, the shady side, very cold.
