  3. Guess my season is still going. Earlier this week I went to John’s house (my new BC buddy) to wax our skis. They were both glopping up last time out. We both have DPS skis with Phantom glide. It does. It hold up in spring conditions. He had a wax I had never heard of with a special iron that you hover a few inches over the skis after kind of just “crayoning” the dry wax on. It seemed to work well and there was very little waste scraped off. So with freshly waxed skis I promised him I would tour with him this week and today was the day. We took his side by side to the creek where there was consistent snow. Then we skimmed from there. Creek crossing was a log bridge. In ski boots carrying gear I took it slow and thankfully did not fall in. I kept hitting my watch and pausing it but I think from my best guess we skinned about 2 miles in to an area the locals call the “debris pile” where there was a previous avalanche. Mellow skiing there, then an area of baby well spaced trees Some sections the snow got skinny on the road End of the baby tree section. John is another one of those guys in his 70’s and not of the picture taking generation, so just had to quickly take a few. Arkansas mountain south facing aspect. Meting quickly. Today was low 60’s and bright sun. Applied 2 rounds of sunscreen and still have a lobster face. John is the head of West Elk Mountain Rescue and I got the hard sell today to join. I felt like I couldn’t say no so I am going to what I guess is my first meeting next week.

  7. Went to check on the eagles nest yesterday. We were looking with our binoculars from bottom lot, security was there immediately. He was nice, but I think he was just checking we weren’t going to try and approach the nest. Apparently Pa Game Commission aware of the nest, and security is making it a priority to look out for it, fine by me. Then we walked top of Blue-still a pile of snow on Lazy

  9. Woke up around 3:30, went outside and looked north. Pretty cool. blueish beams that sort of streaked from north to south and very bright. Wasn’t moving or anything like they see in Iceland or Alaska. Just a lit up sky when facing north only. Any other direction it was dark and I could simply see stars. Neat.

  15. Nice. I was curious and I google mapped it and it's 3:42 from my mom's house and 3:46 from my in-laws house. It's almost the exact midpoint between the two. Slow work day lol.

  35. Thanks for the kind words and beta on snowbowl, I really like the exploration part of skiing and seeing new hills or places I don't remember. This country is super safe and has endless incredible shit so might as well see it. Skiing i feel like why the hell do I want to know where I am and where I'm going all the time? Snowbowl was super surprising and with the upper bowl is a big sleeper. Idaho/Montucky are up for next season but I keep saying that about revelstoke and then something happens so who knows. Just me for the skiing, my brother citing extreme business could only make the bachelor party. Skiing at June was the only time it was a bit weird, like summer school or something where it felt odd no one was there but I make friends fast. A Japanese lady at Mammoth was my favorite, I think she was literally insane. She was lost at cloud 9 lift and absolutely interrogating the lifties about getting to eagle and I made the mistake of saying I could take her. 10 mins later she's still talking to me about her crystals and shakras and how the eclipse is the start of a new celestial era and all that jazz.

  36. Sorry after I left june I went Vegas, Phoenix, Newark, its like I'm on the run from the mob and need some time to cloister and chill. Day 4 - June June is the sister hill to Mammoth where the later is gigantic and mostly newish June is smaller and old. Mammoth has some bro brah too where June is hyper chill. I rolled up a little before 8 mad at myself for not getting out of bed. June is two blue mtns stacked on top of eachother. The lower is all ungroomed blacks that with the freeze thaw are not skiable until the afternoon and are served by a awesome ancient double chair with a custom Jerry rigged safety bar. Because of this nobody skis the bottom mountain so I didn't think it strange I saw absolutely no one out. When I reach mid mtn, all the lifts are running, workers are out but I see no other customers. Fuck man did I get on the lift early or something ? J6 is running so I get on but even from the lift I can't see anyone, not a single other person. Wtf is going on where is everyone ??? I go Silverado a long blue that looks down on lake June which is absolutely perfect cord top to bottom and I still don't see anyone even down at the mid base. I take another faster even more perfect groomer down Bodie and I almost can't believe that I have still yet to see another single customer on the trails, lifts, base area like did I take peyote last night wtf is going on ? It's not until my 4th run I see another person coming up the lift and I'm 1000% serious I think I was the only one there for like the first half hour. Now it's starting to click no one is home and I can do whatever the fuck I want and j7 just opened. J7 hosts the good shit in the upper mtn and they've groomed a wicked steep groomer into deer bowl. All the way up I can see not a single person and decide I'm going to set the afterburner to 1000. From the top of the lift I do 5 massive arcs down the hill at absolutely maximum speed, I lied when I said Mammoth is fast I'm doing 10mph faster as a 1000 vert goes by in seconds. Matterhorn and Schatzi is exactly the same how fucking fast can you go taking up the entire trail jumping off anything because I'm still skiing alone. I've skied like 1000+ days at alot of hills and normally when I say it's empty it's relative to a normal day but I've never seen something like this, ever and not even close. I'm farming cord as I'm crossing only my tracks and while I can now see two groups out from the lift there's maybe 10 people out total on the entire upper mtn. All morning run after run after run I had the whole trail to myself, free to paint without rules I went ape just doing full width full speed arcs under perfect blue skies and sun, Sierra's hulking steep faces lurking in the background, June lake below it was absolutely perfect. It wasn't t-ride/Silverton or other trips where it snowed everyday but top 50 day ever skiing for sure. People did show up but I'd say at max maybe 200 people at most around 1pm. I rode the lift with someone only twice and only because I wanted to talk to this dude that ripped about where the fuck everyone was. Apparently it's almost always low crowds so Iow they don't have enough loot to replace j1 which while super cool is also super slow. After lunch I alternated between empty groomers and working lines up on the upper face. It's a moderate pitch of trees and rocks and while fun the snow never really got right off trail. The groomers though continued to deliver empty perfection. It was a super cool day and one of my favorite groomer days ever. I have written alot of words but if you read anything GO TO JUNE MTN !! PS. In keeping with tradition I saw these, fruit booting with snow board boots interesting.
