  5. howdy x1sculler what I am about to say might seem harsh, but I am going to say it anyways. I have seen you go thru some mighty fine gear and sell things that would work very well. I don't think it is the gear that doesn't work well for you, I think it is you that needs more time on the hill. how do you get to carnegie hall? practice, practice, practice... carving is a dance, it is total body movement... maybe your not a dancer and should take up something else... don't you ever blame any gear... artistry is in the hands of the creator... cateks are dead move on!... if your not on td's then give it up...
  6. howdy all well, it was a great powder season and I am glad I decided to get into a better softboot set-up. I was surprised how well it carved and still fun in the powder. rode close to my average this year, 66 days with 1,636,723 vertical feet and ranked 22nd... photos by Mountain Life Photography

  9. snowreport: sun apr 09, 2017 howdy all wow! what a way to end the season, 6 inches of pow at the summit and 4 inches at the baselodge. dumping a little snow in the early morning for a few hours and a little foggy that moves around. first couple runs on ed's was good and first couple on toni matt was sweet untracked butter. wasn't too many people early than more by noon, but the line on chair 1 wasn't very long all day. snow got wet and huge hard push piles by the end of the day. I missed last chair by half a minute cause it took me a while to get down cause it was so bumped up hard. anyways, it was a good powder year and we got 407 inches and i'm glad I got a new softboot set-up. it was fun riding pow, but there wasn't very many carving days, but the few we had was really good. this winter season was a very cold one with a lot of minus degrees days in the first couple months. yesterday was great spring skiing and today a great powder day, it was a great way to end the season and it always seems to go by too fast. rode the 152wfs from 9 till 4...
  10. snowreport: sat apr 08, 2017 howdy all forecasted to be a rainy weekend, but today was nice with blue skies in the morning then a super high overcast that slowly builds. snow was very firm in the morning then starts to get soft by 11am. carved good in the spring slush and everyone in a good mood. stayed mostly on chair 2 as the crowd builds on chair 1 and everyone is bombing toni matt. today was fun power carving thru the deep slush and today was pond skimming at 2:30pm and did not stop to watch till about 3:30pm I stopped for a few minutes to watch a few of them. can't believe the season is over all ready... tomorrows forecast is some snow, but I think it is mostly further south... rode the 157fp from 9 till 4...
  11. howdy hope to get to this level some day ...
  12. snowreport: fri apr 07, 2017 howdy all had to work the last couple Fridays cause a kid quit, so worked all day and came home to the big's snowreport and saw this:... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Noon update: Due to heavy rain and potential lightning we are shutting down for the rest of the day. 11:40 a.m. update: All chairs are on hold right now due to potential lightning in the area. We will update more when we hear more. 10:30 a.m. update: We've seen a few isolated showers this morning, but we've stayed relatively dry. There's even clear skies to our south. Of course, the weather seems to change every few minutes, so who knows what we'll see the rest of the day. The skiing is soft all across the mountain, and it's quite good everywhere. Pick a favorite groomer or even off-piste area and you'll be pleasantly surprised today. Enjoy your Friday. 8 a.m. update: As I suspected, the clear weather has been replaced by a wet spring storm with the snow line rising above our summit. Visibility is still good from top to bottom today. This storm is exactly what forecasts have been predicting for a week, let's hope the rest of the forecast comes through for snow tonight and lasting through Sunday night. 6 a.m. report: It's a crystal clear morning up here and the groomers say the northern lights are going off. Forecasts are calling for the first wave of the next weather system to move in today, so we'll have to wait and see if we have clear skies when Chair 1 starts turning. Forecasts are looking like early spring in Montana, where it just can't make up its mind. Today, wet weather arrives with a southwestern flow, so the snow line will be high, but as we move into tonight, snow should make it down to the Village. Tomorrow and tomorrow night looks to be cooler and snowy, so we could have a powder filled closing day. The groomers have been great despite the mild weather we've had the last few days, so we can expect similar conditions this morning with smooth, soft corduroy all across our mountain. The grooming crew buffed out 44 runs for us today. It's Friday, which means it's pretty much the weekend. We only have three days left folks, so you don't have any excuse. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ about 4:30pm today there was about 3 thunder and some huge rain earlier today... we'll see what happens tomorrow and sunday...
  13. snowreport: tue apr 04, 2017 howdy all thick fog that goes in and out all morning than mostly sunny by noon. snow was crunchy, but carvable. rode with angry till 11:30am than did a few runs with johnasmo and skwalguy in the afternoon. started to get fun when the sun came out. rode hard all day and was a fun day, good spring carving. rode the 157fp from 9 till 4...
  14. snowreport: mon apr 03, 2017 howdy all left the house and it just starts to snow then the wind picks up and starts to dump really good. it dumped hard all morning till noon and it was nice dry snow that accumulated to an inch plus. went to the backside in the morning and it was a little icy crunchy, but the new snow made it better. the frontside was icy hard and the new snow helped a bit, but still it was hard to dig in till later in the day. the sun tried to peak thru in the afternoon and the ambient temp starts to soften the snow then it gets carvable, but not the best. the sun came out about 3:15pm and I was hoping it would get cloudy so tomorrow would not get icy firm. I think the backside will be good groomers with the new snow. not the best day, but it was fun and the snow in the morning made feel like winter again. rode the 157fp from 9 till 4...
