Man am I behind on my reporting here, but what else is new eh? I ‘m going to cover this ski seasons final days in this report, covering 3 or 4 actual days on the mountain. It’s very sad that the resorts are all closing, as the slopes are buried in snow. I mean, it […]

Kirkwood’s Deep and Alta Bites Back

Bro and I skied Kirkwood almost a week ago, and snow was awesome deep.  The Sierras have been getting hammered and Kirkwood has over 500 inches so far – with more falling as we speak.  Crazy good. We headed right to the backside and had some great runs off of what we call Hamilton Pass.  […]

This is Why We Ski

The deep powder, snowy weather and limited numbers of people on the mountain over the last few days epitomize why we ski. Up to now, our ski adventures this year have left me uninspired. I’ve not written anything here even though we have been up 3 or 4 times. Why? Well, because it was kind […]

Kirkwoods Season Ends- Day 34

How could it be that Kirkwoods Season Ends on April 17th?  It just isn’t right.  There’s a lot of snow there to be skied, and it was actually very sweet all over the mountain today – but alas – Kirkwood mountain closes today. I had to be there, and Bro would have been with me […]

Sierra Nevada Skiing – Days 28 and 29

I am a bit behind on my reporting here, so I thought I’d better catch up.  Have done some Sierra Nevada skiing lately, but it has not really inspired me to make my usual rapid and witty reports. There is currently plenty of snow on the hills, but it is not light or fluffy.  It […]

Heavenly Poo – Day 27

Every powder skier dreams of days where they get into heavenly poo. This is defined as finding 2-3 feet of untouched powder they have all to themselves and they get multiple face shots of sweet tasting powder as cruise down it, relishing the sensation. This is why powder skiers face sometimes harsh elements and ski. […]

Sunny Kirkwood – Days 25 and 26

Skied sunny Kirkwood two times over the last few days. It was sunny and warm and very spring-like in terms of snow conditions – hard in the morning but softening up by the afternoon.  Lots of fun to ski once the snow softens up, as it holds an edge and you can just cook right […]

Kirkwood Snow Day – Day 11

What a fantastic Kirkwood Snow day yesterday. Had about 10 inches of new on the ground, and additionally it snowed buckets all day long. This is the kind of skiing I love the most.  Fresh snow on each run, with a good base underneath.  What could be better?  It was the best day of skiing […]

Kirkwood Family Day – Days 9 and 10

Had my Brother-in- law, his wife and their 9 year old granddaughter up over the weekend, so of course we had to take a Kirkwood family day to do a little skiing. These folks live in Fresno, so were not used to the snow – so we got them all geared up and had a […]
