Hey Bob, Can you go out and check the conditions at Buck today?...and post a report? I want to test ride my new board tomorrow ;)

It's hard to tell what the conditions are on the webcams. I was kinda wishin' they'd turn on the snow guns during this cold spell─guess they're just giving up:freak3:

sorry dave. i was out of town. i think if you saw the hill from the 35W you'd kept on driving. save your board!

went out saturday. not looking good on milkrun. crossroads was better but there are areas where brown patches with rocks are showing.

the cord was thin and snow was fast.  upright riding. the only run i really liked was the backside run.

it was brutally cold. i wasn't dressed warm enough for the windchill.

Thanks Bob. I ended up going up to Wild which wasn't too bad considering the weather we've had. Most runs were open and only Ego Ally had a narrow ribbon through a bare section at the top. 

Maybe this storm will make it good again, for a few days at least.

conditions we're very conducive to carving. 

Someone was flying a drone way up above the run. It was way up there. It's the white pixel in the photo.
