Yeah well my rock harness didn't fit over all the layers when I started ice climbing so I bought a Blizzard for that. I need to stick to womens specific harnesses because of my hips... Anyways... to get back on topic... I wanted to head up this weekend but it looks like it will be a little too cold.

All the better; I can sleep off the inevitable St. Patty's hangover that way, I guess.

or you could go to NH. there should be a foot+ of freshies by the time the present stretch of flurries are done. (you'll only get to play in it if you stay out of the resorts)

bah, it's still ski/riding season!

Knee-deep powder (in spots) at Jackson Hole today.

Off to Squaw Valley on Saturday, where they're reporting a base of 280 inches at mid-mountain.

I think spring can wait a little while longer.

oh, you lucky bastard!! Squaw is getting pounded again today, expecting 2-3 feet of new fluff! You'd better have chains!

Closer to home, Killington is reporting they got 7" of new snow in the last 24 hours.

Yeah, but that's been spread across two skiing days. It'll be tracked off by the time you get there this weekend (if you're going)

go backcountry somewhere that holds powder. do yourself a favor.

i have to use up my mEticket too but i ain't doing it this icy weekend. (anyone who skis with me in late march/early april can get a discount hint hint)

wish i were at squaw again. i was there in february and they got a lot of snow but not as much as they were getting now. don't forget to hike the Palisades

Well nevermind. It looks like I'll be the idiot trying to climb rock at the gunks this weekend. 10-1 I propose quitting at noon to retire to Bacchus.

Don't even get me started... we just got back from the annual "Dad's Ski Trip" at Killington and while it was a blast as usual (I entered the world of free heel skiing and suspect I may never look back ) but back to my rant... that mountain is in the worst shape I have even seen it for early/mid March. They need 7 FEET of snow to recover... or just call it a season. What pisses me off is the trail reports indicating a 20-30" avg base depth... trust me... Dirt - 12" is more realistic
