  2. This was just posted over on Pugski. I don't see it anywhere else online yet. Guy got the issue in the mail, you'd think you'd see official announcements online. Overall Top 10 in West:1) Aspen/Snowmass2) Sun Valley3) Whitefish4) Steamboat5) Deer Valley6) Whistler/Blackcomb7) Telluride8) Beaver Creek9) Breckenridge10) Park City
  3. Got caught up a little with him tonight, going to continue our conversation tomorrow. Thanks for the shove. He's now big on running and does it at night time (clearly he doesn't live in grizzly and mountain lion country).
  4. We're friends on Facebook and touch base occasionally, but since he's always posting team pictures, senior pictures, etc. for his clients, I don't "follow" him anymore. I don't have a good grasp of whether he's even skiing.
  5. I guess I was thinking of the old Camelback site. I know I met skimom at a race through a forum. Thought it was this one. I was already in Montana by 2004.
  6. Still seeing him. Pics of her riding and after reaching the top of some touring climb. Hard to believe when I first joined this board she was 11 years old and on the Camelback team.
  7. Wait until you see the prediction for El Niño/La Niña around October-ish. We are very much affected by those events, with the best seasons being La Niña (in my records kept since 2005, we get well over 100 inches more snow during La Niña). Total Last Day Snow Depth 304.5 110.1 weak or neutral average 359.6 134.8 La Niña average (best year was 426"/142") 246.0 82.4 El Niño average (worst year was 173"/79") 311.7 113.3 average overall Failing that, I'd say the best week to be here for snow is the LAST week of February, not President's week, the next one. That's based on my notes about particularly good days in the last ten years. Any later and you risk spring conditions. If you can't make that week, then earlier is better, but you don't want to be here President's week.
  8. I hear Bumble is the place. I don't know how to get rid of that empty quote.
  9. Almost 32. Not married yet. Seeing a guy who is into mountain biking and back country skiing, tho, so you never know.
  10. I use a real camera. I still own a flip phone. I take plenty of pictures over the course of a season, but as we all know, not every picture is a keeper. So the goal is to pick the picture that either embodies the day, is a real stunner, or somehow stands out. The reality on foggy days it's the one that looks like something, anything. 😰😇😱👿🤓🤓😠😝😧.... Hmm, emoji window came up, never got populated with anything, Chrome froze, now I've got all these stupid emojis and can't delete them?..... You've got a bug here. The pictures posted above have been pulled from Facebook, which does a lot of processing, downloaded to an Android tablet, and reloaded here, so they've suffered a bit. Siblet's pic was probably taken with an iPhone. It was taken by a skiing companion, certainly not by me.
  11. I'm thinking Big Face. That gets some cupping due to wind, but the really dangerous tree wells, that appear to be solid snow right up to the trunk, appear in truly treed areas. The snow surrounding the tree might appear level, but it's not consolidated, so it's this invisible pit where snow keeps cascading down on you the more you struggle. There's a lot of these areas on the back, around Evan's, and off Bigfoot T-Bar. Those areas don't get so wind blasted so the snow stays fluffy and loose. Great skiing until...
  12. I go through periods when I do, but it hasn't lasted long. It's pretty mellow here compared to a lot of other places. We getting more popular though, and I hope it stops. 🙂 Plus, starting next year, Super Seniors won't be free. One of my goals had been to ski at least until I could ski for free, so that stinks.
  13. Testosterone is a big help. 😉
  14. Thread drift: Siblet hits the back country down in the Bitterroot:
