Looks like you guys had some great conditions during your trip. Didn't get a chance to catch up with Leo as I think we left for Mexico the day after he got back to town. I heard he bought a new ride for you guys during the trip

Saw your 990 sitting all tidy in the barn as I left Leo's house! Yes, we had some decent snow especially at Grand Targhee. Sunny cold and dry here now - we need some new snow!

Follow the wind - find the snow!



At least it's not raining

Just got back from a super fun trip to Pahrump, Nevada (ride report to follow soon) and after getting multiple texts from well-meaning friends trying to make me jealous of the weekends' excellent snow, I just had to go up yesterday. Not a ton of new snow, it was scoured and thin in places - about a foot of nice wind transport in others though.



We spent the morning on NWE as most people went up to the summit but NWE hadn't been open the day prior. Skied a bunch of low-angle trees right down to the bottom and had a nice time on Bachelor with MrDualsport and our buddy Mark.

No, but someday I really want too! But would want the conditions to be light powder. Last weekend, despite the their website and the forecast of powder, it was sunny skies and spring like conditions. But what I truly love about that place is the laid back at atmosphere and friendly people. Parking lot was full on Saturday and no lift line. Ski right up and jump on the lift

From the top we could make out where it looked like the cat had been going. Looks like they cat ski that back area down. Would love to hear from anyone here who has done it over there.

Got new skins and did get a chance to try them out some. I might try to get out Sunday and skin up to Cloud Cap and maybe higher up on the Spur.

Our friend June cut'in it up-
