I broke down and went Epic Local at the last minute...

I broke down and canceled my Epic Local at the last minute. Will probably regret it if the border opens.

My current plan is Snoqualmie + Bachelor early season on the Ikon, then maybe pick up the midseason or spring pass to Snoqualmie depending on how things pan out. 

I'm trying to remain positive, but it is harder to get hyped this year. I know snowboarding right now requires some level of selfishness, but I'm hoping to mitigate the guilt with pragmatic choices on the days I go.

I think it's a great year for quiet night riding too. Fingers crossed that'll be an option.

I’m just going to wing it this year. I had one foot out the door last year after getting hurt at the start of last season. Whitefish is probably my favorite mountain anyway. Hope everyone gets in lots of turns this season.

This is the year that everyone wishes they lived in SLC... lol.

No matter what, I’m gonna get a bunch of pow days, just too much BC terrain here that is so easily accessible, and there is a ton of terrain that nobody ever goes to. All the “classics” will be over run, but that’s because the majority of people are sheep and follow the “guide” books or just go to the known trail heads. 

I’m gonna get mine, no matter what. 15+ years of touring in Wasangeles has set me up for this season. 

I could see myself riding Brighton a few times. Have a mid-week pass there. 

I have a Bird pass ( employee), but with the 25 person limit on the Tram, doubtful I’ll ride there.

If anyone is starved for pow feel free to come to Wasangeles and follow me around.

Termination dust last few weeks here, and a friend had light snow at sea level a few miles north of town today. Mixed rain/snow forecast at sea level Sunday night/Monday, and snow at Eaglecrest. Historically slightly behind schedule, but last bunch of years on par, and lined up with La Niña.

Quick couple of inches last weekend here. It all melted, which is great. Snow in late Sept/early Oct sucks because it will stay on the high north facing slopes sometimes then cause instability issues all season long. This is actually the first time in quite a few years that we don't have any snow right now hanging around on those slopes. This will open up a lot of BC terrain quite a bit earlier as there will be no waiting for shit to either heal and or slide a few times to flush out all of the crap snow. 

Ideally we go two more weeks with no snow, then it turns on the second week in Nov...

for those with passes at resorts requiring reservations, what's your booking strategy?  frontload (mitigate against another shutdown and at least get some days), sprinkle throughout the season, target a specific period?

Patron saint DanDan here to reassure everyone we will all have a season. I told myself if I ever sold my Thirtytwos (a.k.a the clunkytwos) the gods would grace us with a season.

I sold them this week. The best part being that it was to a skiier doing his first full season with us. It will be a solid season.

Kind of a lot of snow in the forecast for Eaglecrest through early November, according to noaa & wunderground, which are the least inaccurate around here. I tend to keep lesser expectations, so we’ll see. But if we just get 2 feet of thick stuff out of the current numbers, that’s a great start.

We got a a bit of snow as deep as my hard nipple. Don't ask how I know. Now, we had snow before Haloween last winter too, and then like.... nothing until March. So, I'm just going to close my eyes and not pay attention so that I don't have any expectations either way.
