    Conditions at Sunshine?

    Thanks. We have primarily intermediate skiers, so that's helpful. And your description of Louise is spot on. Tom

    Conditions at Sunshine?

    HI, At Lake Louise this week. Snow is pretty good, but getting thin, and the sunny warmth Tuesday didn't help. Does anyone have first-hand information about conditions at Sunshine before we take the bus over there? We're staying in Lake Louise, so it's much easier to stay here. tia, Tom

    Season 2016-17 Plans

    It was, but we stopped in for dinner, then back to Visp. It was tempting, though.

    Season 2016-17 Plans

    That was a great trip report - thanks for posting it. Based on the photo of the trail sign, perhaps a tad more snow than in June! :shock:

    Advice requested - move to Jackson, WY (Somewhat off-topic)

    Thanks for the advice, James and Tony. I read a guide to skiing JH on epics that Bob wrote, and he was a great resource.

    Advice requested - move to Jackson, WY (Somewhat off-topic)

    Hi all, Apologies in advance for a posting in the Western forum for a non-skiing question. My wife and I spent a week at Jackson Hole earlier this month, and to my astonishment, when we returned home, she declared that in retirement, she'd like to spend a year (at least) living in the area...

    Fun photo of lenticular clouds over Grand Teton from the Daily Mail: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... -Park.html We saw some of these formations on Thursday and Friday, but never saw this spectacular one.

    Baldyskier: Try the Hobacks. Take Hanging Rock and Rendezvous trails from the top of Sublette to the entrance on the right. They're probably _comparatively_ skied off, but it's such a huge area that you'll find plenty of non-groomer fun in there. They've got rollovers, ridges, gullies, trees...

    Great TR! We spent last week there, Feb 7-14, for some spring skiing. Nice pics of the Hobacks. It's a bit different with heavy, wet stuff, but at least the trails on top remained frozen.

    Park City MR 3/4/2014

    Re the trail: If I ponder Google maps with satellite view, I think it might have been pretty close to Scott's bowl. We skied under the chair for 30 yards or so, skied to the left, then followed a trail around to the right with boundary signs on our left. When we saw the hill that we'd need to...

    Oh, that really hurts. I'm off to Killington this weekend to remind myself what I was missing in Utah last week.

    Park City MR 3/4/2014

    Jojo: Thanks for the descriptions of the Jupiter system. I was there with friends last week, and since we didn't know the area, (and hadn't done any research before going - d'oh!), we probably missed the best runs. We sure had fun, though. I can't wait to go back. (We skied Jupiter on Monday...

    Tuning skis

    Nicely done, canyonmanny. I like the self-contained nature of your design.
