This week has been great, and it lead to pow vibes 10. Footage is just from Sunday and Monday after the main dump on Thursday.

What are you filming on now?

Surprise day of goodness. Was expecting more of a refreeze, given the weather change. Couple runs just out the gate with Sam, follow footage courtesy of a friend

Just keeps coming. So stoked we are having a legit season. Snowpack is strong and generally has good stability. I feel for everywhere that’s struggling... we are lucky this year.

Report from today (again keeping in mind we are always closed tues/weds)

”On Monday morning Eagelcrest had 10” of new snow at the top and a slushy 3” at the base. High winds prevented us from running Ptarmigan (the main lift), so there is pristine snow waiting! Then, around mid-afternoon it started snowing again all over the mountain.

Yesterday, Tuesday, the skies parted to beautiful sunshine, and the mountain was blanketed with another fresh layer of excellent powder snow, about 6-8” at the base, and even more up top! Uphill skiers snowboarders report incredible conditions!

Today we have a Winter Weather Advisory through midnight. Potentially 6-11” by first chair Thursday morning! Get your powder weapons ready! We’re back at it again! Snow is in the forecast for the next seven days!”

Hammerhead will be utilized.

We got over 40" in four days starting friday with a few inches per day all week. Crazy deep out there. Rode the resort for a couple days, got the untouched goods before they got beat up, got up a half hour early on sunday for passholder appreciation which was a nice handful of untouched runs with 9" overnight. Let the snow settle a couple days and went splitboarding yesterday for some knee deep trail breaking. I think that puts me at about 30 days so far. Another possible 12" for this weekend 

saw a dude on a korua stealth and then immediately another on a korua dart who proceeded to ride down the shallowest section under the chair and he slammed at least 4 rocks in a row

Felt bad for the rider or the board?

Another powder Thursday here too. Report was 22” settled. Felt like softer snow getting more dense as you dug down deeper, like a pillowtop on top of memory foam on top of a medium creamy mattress.

Here is another video. First part me and Jeremy, second part Rainery and our friend Dave, third part a few quick gopro clips. Hammerhead is still lovely.

eh the Dart didn't deserve that. The spot he dropped is a notorious thin spot so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yeah we see those all the time. Mostly on rental boards though. I saw a guy walking across a flatter bit that still I'm able to clear on a park board in deep pow, carrying a huge ass dupraz.. Felt bad for the board.

utah trip was solid the other week, rode brighton a few times, powmow, and snowbird.

powmow - had a lot of great, light snow. visibility was pretty shit, so I stuck to areas I knew (not a ton) but didn't have to deal with much tracked out stuff since it was a weekday and super fucking cold

snowbird - heavier snow, but bluebird and riding the gentem/moon buggy in wide open bowls was a blast. did a little hiking to some areas that were easy to get out of. super fucking cold again

brighton - always super fun, wetter heavy snow, weird for utah.  western was closed due to wind and then snake closed early too, but lapped milly a lot and went to a lot of drops I had never been to before.  next time i'm out maybe one of you guys can show us some better areas.

LCC was closed thursday and friday that we were there, pretty wild storm cycle.  it's now 41 and raining back here in MI...
