    Just got back from a day at Blue with my 7 year old son. Called him out of school and got on the sixer at around 9:50. Started with Paradise since this was his first time out this year. Took a few turns for the little man to get in the swing of things, then we were off and shredding. Did paradise 4times, Burma twice with the yeti park, lazy twice, switchback once. Run of the day for us was sidewinder to the lower park, to the 2 big roller jumps next to the six pack. We did that 4 times. My sons favorites were anything that had jumps, I think he’s gonna be a park rat. Got a pretzel in the lodge and he passed out like a champ on the ride home. Despite pretty crappy conditions was one of the most fun days out for me! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Hit up Brevent and La Gliere today, lots of sun and ripping groomers. A bit of off paste today but it was hitnor miss depending on the aspect. Hired a guide for tomorrow and they are calling for 5” overnight and 8-13 during the day tomorrow. Also took a ride up the midi because today may have been the only clear day.

    I basically run seminar discussions for a living and we sometimes map the conversation to see connections and diagnose problems. So I made a flow chart to examine the Thread-tastrophe that happened here this evening. I'm not innocent, I admit that eaf. This chart has the advantage of representing 90% of ski-forum "help me choose a ski" discussions, so I feel that it could be a real time-saver in the future. Near as I can figure, it all went wrong when someone mentioned skis.

    Last day. Skied Blackcomb all day again. We went out last night and got turnt AF. So started slow and got on the snow at 9:30. Took it easy and only skied double blacks today since snow was best up in alpine. Started with Couloir Extreme and dropped into Jersey Cream bowl again. After that we headed back to the glacier to scope out some potential lines from the bottom. We wanted to hit Spanky’s Ladder and drop down into some different routes. The hike in was super sketchy bootpack but worse, it was just like a toe pack. Once in, we dropped into Garnet Bowl and then skied another chute into Diamond Bowl and out. We ended up hiking in 3 times and taking different runs each time. I can’t remember the rest of the names. Maybe Ruby Bowl, Zut Zut, and Wild Ride. Probably some of the gnarliest terrain I’ve skied. Not many pics today, and those that we do have don’t do it justice, it was just Kevin and I out in these areas. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yesterday we skied only Whistler. Spent some time on the Peak Chair and that zone down to big red. Spent some time in Harmony and Symphony. Skied some pretty good chutes in the Horseshoes and whatnot. Ryan's first bowl was Bagel Bowl which was a bit crispy but still good. We found some really good snow on certain faces. Still not expecting any snow, but should be party or mostly sunny. Today we spent almost the whole day on Blackcomb. We found the best snow over on the glacier and spent most of our times over there. I don't remember all of the runs and lifts that we took like rain man Doug, but it was pretty legit today. Found some good steeps, and lots of stuff to jump off of. Ryan has been crushing it as well. Tomorrow we are probably heading back to Blackcomb and skiing 7th Heaven area to start. Tonight is cougar night at one of the clubs, so that should be fun. Pics coming soon.

    Just got home from a sunny session with my 8 year old daughter. We got her rentals taken care of, redeemed the $29 pass and hit the snow at 10. Went right up the six pack and skied paradise first. Big thanks to the Ernie Blake Ski School at Taos for teaching her to ski, she’s actually pretty good! We skied paradise 5 times, lazy mile, switchback (from the top of the Main Street lift), sidewinder, and Burma 3 times. Only one fall for her the whole day. We split a cookie and a Powerade in the lodge when we were done. Conditions were a bit rough, especially on sidewinder which was ball bearings, but the sides of paradise where it was soft was fun. Great one on one time with my daughter! My son gets his day on Tuesday. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Went to Les Houches today with the guide, had a coffee to start the day off then rolled down for first tram. When we woke up we did not think skiing today was going to be an option, the wind was ripping and very gusty in town, by 830 it had calmed down significantly and by 9 it was pretty much still. Did a few laps with solid over knee turns and it was easy to link knee to waste deep turns together. It continued to snow all day and it just kept getting deeper and better. Our guide kept showing us to new zones and more deep turns, we generally skied the trees and lift lines. The snow was overall pretty light at elevation but you had to watch out for the snow snakes towards the village. We had lunch around 1, followed by a few more knee deep plus turns and finished the day off with a beer in the village with the guide. It is still snowing a bit and should pick up overnight for more good turns tomorrow. We only paid for two days with the guide but he said he will follow up for the rest of our trip and give us weather updates and a plan on where to ski daily. The guide was well worth the money, he was a super cool guy and and absolute ripper. Having a few beers at our place now and about to go get some food and a few more beers, it’s karaoke night at an awesome little watering hole we hit up on Sunday night so we may head there for a bit. Again I did not get many pictures maybe justo will post some, he has some good shots. Little stream crossing towards the base Money shot of the day Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Today was pretty crazy. They were reporting 5” when I checked at 6am, but it was nuking all morning and that total ended up at 13” when I checked at lunchtime. The place was totally empty too. I didn’t cross a single track until about 11 am. I got first tracks down Bob’s again thanks to my sneaky route around the lift shack and it was knee to thigh deep and got a couple face shots. I repeated the limited terrain, but the limited terrain wasn’t even an issue because of the free refills. I hiked 4 times to west blitz and it was so good I wanted to do it all day but the legs eventually were saying hold up. A picture is worth a thousand words I guess. Every single track in these pics is mine! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    What a great surprise today was! They reported 2”, but it continued to snow all day. Skied like 5” on much of the mountain. I guess I’m the luckiest son of a bitch in the world, but today was the first rope drop on highline ridge and west basin hike to terrain. Highline was only open through Juarez and west basin only through west blitz trees, but I was probably the 20th person to ski Juarez this year and it was really deep. Bottomless. I hiked once more to do Juarez again and made 2 hikes to west blitz trees which was so nice but not quite as bottomless. Played around off of bobs, moes and walkyries again. Skipped all the lift 8 bullshit. Word is more terrain opening tomorrow as they are looking at another 5-8 inches tonight, although it never really stopped snowing today aside from a few quick breaks in the clouds. I only brought my all mountain skis because conditions were expected to be so bad. Having fun in the 3D snow on my skinny skis!!

    Interesting day at Taos but really fun. First, man are they hurting for a base. I’ve never seen Al’s with so much shit poking through in the 30 years I’ve been going to Taos. Neither of the ridges is open and part of the backside is still closed. The good thing is that 7 inches fell at the base and was much more up high. I started out on the frontside and skied lift 8 for a while when waiting for the backside to open. About half the runs were left ungroomed which made for some nice boot to knee deep perder turns. I kept going up lift 2 to check if the backside was open and on my third time up I noticed the rope was gone and proceeded down honeysuckle. Got probably 3rd tracks down walkyries bowl and because I know some local tricks, I knew that Bobs would be good if it was open. After coming down walkyries, I snuck around lift 7a’s bottom shack and entered Bobs run which was knee deep and I had first tracks. I followed bobs down under lift 7 and had untouched powder the entire length of lift 7. I did that routine 3 times and was exhausted. After a little break I searched the sides of trails for what was left. I saw some prep going on on some of the upper steeps which look almost ready to go. Possibly some snow for Thursday so my fingers are crossed. My pics aren’t great, I wasn’t stopping to take off my gloves in the morning and it was cold as shit all day.

    Hey All, I'm back from another fun session at Blue mountain the true mountain. I arrived at the bottom lot around 725 and it was 34 degrees and overcast with fog on th upper 1/4 of the mountain. In the house were Atomic Jeff, JFBBDan, Matt Edge, Johnny Law, Indiggio, Tarponhead, MBike Mike, GSSucks, Ty, Nastar Glenn and many others. Firat run on challenge was great packed powder..maybe a little sticky on the flats but pretty nice. Sidewinder was a carpet early on very nice and Switchback third run was a hoot and hollering good time. I repeated Switchback several more times. Per usual Main Street was good on top not bad but choppy on bottom. Lazy mile was pretty nice fast enough and good snow and grooming. I tried barneys bumps which were hot and cold. Didn't ski the challenge or chute bumps. In the lot there was a cool wrapped truck with x man or some sort of green action figure..I'm out of touch like my fourth favorite Hall and Oates songs. Had some parking lot beers..cheered on PASRs own monoskier GSSucks and drank more beer.

    Great Eastern is probably the best trail on the EC, when it's empty it's 3k vert of just super fun arc arc arc ok now lets look around and back to arc arc arc. Lots of skiing tips and shit (btw learn how to put your boots on or buy a WC horn because nothing says I don't know what the fuck I'm doing like some random dude grunting like he's an 90lb asian women pushing shaq's baby out) but nobody asked you the most important question. Are you fucking feeling this shit man ? Lets get real, your a great skier for only skiing two years but in the overall sense you ski like shit. Now that's cool because you've only been doing it two years but before you left you had lost your mojo no ? No emotion, no zest and you'll be the worst skier of all time which is one that lacks passion. Do you feel the passion ? When you stood up top at K1 and you clicked in were you half way to midnight ? When you got to the bottom of gondolier, before you tried to ski into the gondy did you want to ask the cute waitress if you she ever got the Cleveland steamer from a rural PA state worker at the Mansfield Inn ? You should have because that means you got the passion, lots of peeps will spend their lives on X&O's taking lessons and get no where because they lack the passion to giv'r. You took risks when you went glades but you jerry'd right out of it by taking the skis off. Your a young man to be wound so tight, slip it, step it, shit ride your poles like amateur night at Delilahs but keep the skis on and figure out a way down. You learn alot of shit fucking around in EC woods. If you found your passion back then this was a successful trip.................................... plus get another pair of skis if you want to run untracked in the woods, can't catch a 500lb tuna on a mickey fishing rod with a bobber.

    February 1, 2017 day 7 of 7 Hey All, Well another great trip to Jackson hole is in the books, my 15th trip here and Atomic Jeffs 11th. We left the 49er at the typical 740am and were in the Ranch lot at 8ish. It was the first and only day we didn't have 3 or more people in the Kardashian Suburban so we had to pay $10 for parking. Managed first civilian gondola with Dennis who talked about hot yoga and hunting for morals with his billionaire friend. As we climbed higher on the gondola we noticed more and more new snow. First run down the ampitheater to Thunder had a couple inches of light and dry powder on top of groomed. Up Thunder and down the left side of Grand which was deep and untracked..I think only Dennis and some of the wallets were in front of us. Then into ten sleep bowl which was partially roped off for the finish of the king and Queen of corbetts event over to the cirque where we had the deepest and lightest powder of the trip right down the center below the big dead tree..totally untracked with chest shots every turn and a few faceshots. Back down to thunder which had a half Corral liftline..up thunder to right side of the grand and in the woods for more untracked. Then up sublette where we rode with a gaper from Vermont who we told to ski Cirque but he was distracted by other already tracked out terrain. He did give me a single hit of weed which was nice but a bit of a tease. Then back to the cirque a little farther over incredible top to bottom fresh again I was totally covered in powder from the chest down when I got back to thunder which had a line extending outside of the Corral. Up thunder and this time on grand only dound found a handful of untracked turns skiers right mainly in the woods and below a brushy area..sublette had a full Corral liftline as well..up sublette and there were several hundred people watching the event that we skied past on the way back to the cirque. By now all the jerrys with go pros and RTMs were in the cirque and even a few lessons..was totally tracked out except the far left that we skied which still had a few pockets of fresh and surfy snow. Since we got 7 fresh pow runs in a row completing a great trip I had no interest in skiing tracked up snow with the masses so took nez perce down gros verte which got progressively worse. I stopped to take a piss about 1,000 vert above the base and there wasn't even an inch of new snow on top of the refrozen crust off trail. Down into the village...shuttle to the car to deboot then shuttle back to village and a nice Italian lunch in the hotel terra. Was a great trip with fun PASRs all of whom Jackson hole first timers. Was fun showing everybody around and as I always say anybody who wants to ski Jackson hole with me is welcome to. It's my way of giving back to the sport. Atomic jeff made a great chauffeur, JFDan loved the perder, NMSki had a permanent smile for five days, MBike Mike loved the 3D snow, Nastar Glenn has more energy than anybody I know and PARidge loved the Hobacks and expansiveness of Jackson hole..I'll savor the afterglow of a great powder day and great trip this afternoon and post my annual The Good, The Bad and The Ugly in the coming days. Thanks everybody for reading along at home and giving out likes!!!

    @RidgeRacer We're all here for you buddy. If you need anything when you get back, please let us know. PASR is a community of assholes, but we really do care about each other here, so don't hesitate to ask.

    Fantastic conditions this morning. By far the best day of the year. Untracked runs down Razors was great. Glad to ski somewhere with good pitch. Absolutely loved the pow and the float from my non-skinny, knee-busting skis. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Eaf if you hate PASR that much then post elsewhere. Personally I think you can provide a lot to the site but you insist on calling out the nuances that you don't like which isn't going to do you any favors. You clearly love the sport and that's cool. Jeff's right. PASR isn't epic (RIP) or AZ or Pugski. PASR is a group of people who care more about just having fun skiing, regardless of where, and less about centimeters or ankle flex. It's a group of people who watched me get a fucking tetanus shot in a hospital lobby because they give a shit. That's what PASR is. It doesn't need more organization or stricter rules. It definitely doesn't need a corporate sponsor or any BS like that. It needs to stay the way it is IMO.

    Today's avy forecast was so wrong. It said 5" last 24, and 4" overnight. It snowed 6" or so during the ski day yesterday. It was fucking deep. Some super light cowboy powder to make it real nice.

    Did you buy the damn skis yet? This is the dumbest fucking thread on this stupid piece of shit site. The second problem is that you're buying Volkl's, get a pair of Kastle BMX 115's with a set of pivots and be done with it.
