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 […]

The Snow Apocalypse Continues

The snow apocalypse has continued here in the Sierras.  Heavenly and Kirkwood have received over 120 inches of snow in the last week.  It has buried the resorts, and they’ve not been able to open lifts or terrain. Kirkwood’s backside has not been open for over 10 days and you can see why.  That picture […]

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 […]

Winter’s coming my friends!

Winter’s coming my friends.  Check out the snow in the mountains today.  This is the third time we’ve had snow in the mountains this year – but this snow was more then just a light dusting.  It looks like a real snow, and it’s cold in the valley as well. It’s happening!   Better get ready […]

Heavenly’s Last Day – Day 35

Well the ski season is over. Yup, even though there is still plenty of snow in the mountains, and more on the way, yesterday was Heavenly’s last day for the season.  There are other resorts that are still open, but I seriously doubt we ‘ll be making the trip to ski them.  Too far, too […]

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 […]

Family Ski Week – Days 30-33

Just wrapped up a family ski week and it was a blast.  Well, it really wasn’t a full week, but ole bro and I did 5 days in a row and by the end it we felt like it was at least a week – maybe a month. Yesterday was the last day and on […]

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 […]

Skiing Mt Rose – Day 24

Skiing Mt Rose is always a good distraction from the usual slopes that we ski around here.  Bro had 2 free tickets – so of course we had to go.  In the infamous words of good buddy Steve Kenney, “If it’s free – it’s for me!” – so we absolutely had to take advantage of […]
