In S.D. and would love to go but am cutting out early on Friday for another trip so cant pull Baldy.

Usually they'll open on a snow day but often take longer to de-ice the lifts, etc. since they're so old. Formal Winter Storm Warning in effect with 3-5 inches Wednesday night and another few Thursday. Good luck yo!


Point forecast for the Baldy Notch area (6 Miles S Wrightwood CA) is below...

The road to Baldy can be very interesting. Very steep with lots of switchbacks. I would do some research before you go. Baldy has terrain that Will make you amazed you are in socal though.

One of the roads to Big Bear is closed, but you can take other routes in. Go to the snow summit website and you can see the open routes.

Mammoth last week. Probably best snow I've ever had there. Temps barely got to 20, and were - at night, so snow was light. Also the most snow I've ever seen up there.

Just got back from Jackson Hole. Got on the mountain pretty much all day Friday and most of the day Saturday. First tram both days. I didn't quite send it that huge, but I took a drop into Corbet's on Saturday morning. Got off balance on the transition/hard right turn, slid on my back for a second, but recovered and made it out on my feet.

JH was awesome. It snowed all week and Friday was the first time the sun came out in a while. It got warm in the afternoon so it got a little chunky, but I found a bunch of pretty steep chutes and bowls that stayed good in the afternoon. It snowed about an inch overnight and stayed cooler most of the day Saturday, so it was still plenty fun. My boots are toast so my ankles are a little sore, but it was a damn good time.

Looks like MM popped the 600" cherry over the weekend.
Headed up tomorrow-Friday, looking like another good dump on the way, just hope the wind isn't a factor.

Just got back from MM
In all of the years I have been going, I have never seen so much snow, including '83 and 2010-11. Over 630" as of yesterday at the summit and counting.
Anyways, I got clocked by an out of control gal that was buzzed on brownies (by her own admission) and ended up with bruised ribs and couldn't ski the rest of the trip (total yard sale in front of Canyon Lodge).
Sooo....
I have 3 tickets left that I bought at Costco that are good for the rest of the season, and paid $107 a day.
I'll sell them for $80 each (all three) $240 bucks.
PM if you are interested.
BTW, if you want to see, and ski/board some of the most epic conditions you will probably ever experience in your life at MM... GO!

Went up to the mountain house Wednesday night with the intention of hitting Kirkwood on Thursday and Friday. Stormed a bunch that night and the road was closed so decided to take a rest day for a change. Glad I did, because Friday was really fun and I had energy to go hard all day. Uncrowded, not super deep powder, but powder none the less, and pretty windy all day which filled in some cracks at the end of the day. There are nooks and crannies that I have never seen so filled up with snow. Even dropped "Once is Enough" for the second time ever. Really fun day.

just got back from MM yesterday. tried chasing a storm that never really materialized. was supposed to snow Sunday afternoon, but never really hit until partly Monday. snowed overnight Saturday so Sunday was pretty darn epic blue bird + powder. Still, I don't think they've got as much as winter of 2016 yet. That year they had to plow under tops of lifts to cut out space for the chairs to run. All the wind this year also has made Chair9 side super icy hard. looks so deceiving over there being powder, but it's rock hard. Chair 14 & 12 as usual had the best snow throughout as that stuff stayed cold and fluffy. still some good powder stashes over there. The snow berms in town are crazy with one whole lane of the two lane road is taken up with the snow pilled up. Ski patrol at MM must be doing a HELL OF A JOB this year. no avalanches will this amount of snow.

Drove up to Willamette last night and shredded all day today. 16" of fresh which was about 3x what I was expecting. Amazingly fun day with patches blue sky making for good visibility, cold temps, minimal crowds and chill vibes as usual. Glad to get a good powder day before the seasons change.
