Opening day is now pushed to the 17th and I doubt that'll happen. Apparently it's supposed to snow on Saturday, Monday and Tuesday

Its been raining here, and its up around 5 degrees. Can't even make snow anymore, most of the clubs have pushed opening day back to the 24th, I expect Blue to do the same. Otherwise opening day is going to have some very questionable conditions.

Here are some pictures from the best place I've rode so far. It's a glacier in Tirol Austria called HinterTux. Elevation is 3200m, lots of great runs, good conditions, and a few mid mountain parks and trick zones. These pictures were before the first real snowfall of the year which came about 10 days ago. Apparently now the conditions are fantastic because a huge snow fall came through and even opened up some of the Alp areas in Germany.

Wish I was going out west. worked a season at big white and ski'd whistler as well when I was out there. Can't wait to go back! The powder at big white was unreaaaal! riding backcountry with crazy snowboarders was nuts, going off 10-15 foot drops in the middle of the trees and hoping for the best was a little scary!


Looks like this year will just be collingwood and holliday valley for me..possibly vermont on newyears.

Yea the interior is amazing, the amount of snow and how few people ride it....it's unbelievable especially for people who've only seen hills not mtns.



New boots!

went up to Blue today - 9 runs open all groomed snow. Was pretty good, until I smoked this poor kid by accident (he wasn't looking where he was going and cut right into me...KO)

Ya what a bummer -- I didn't know they were valid for nights though? I think we're going Thursday, there's supposed to be some snowfall Wednesday and Thursday up there

edit: youre right! this website shows that night skiing is still valid, in the valid ski days section
