Your pics are awesome and the action is off the hook. Love checkin' them out. How is the snow holdin' up to the warm temps? Is it crustin' over or is firmed up and corn? I will be out that way next weekend. JR

Hey JR,
Looking forward to seeing you. The powder train has finally come to a standstill.(We've been spoiled rotten). Things didn't really soften up today, but sun in the forecast for next weekend could mean good afternoon corn

Mickey, I hate to say it, but yes the wind actually got a lot better right after you left. The snow out in the flats was more forgiving too.

Was not planning on going so big, so I got out of camera almost right after take off!
That was a scary......but fun glide!

Saturday looks like W, for the moment.
W can go around and hit LH from N or S, depends.
Bic Mac should be more exposed, but there is a 40 min skin up.
Let see what the forecast says by Friday.

Mickey i was thinking the same as you regarding forecast. Johnny sack up and drive that big rig back over RMP for a Big mac sesh! Nothin but dry pavement. We'll meet you at the top. (Easy for me to say in my cute lil Prius).
