    Kirkwood, CA 5/1/2022 (Closing day)

    Someone from Alpinforum was there for Kirkwood's closing day and extols the mogul runs, which are a rarity in the Alps. Most Euros can't stand them but they're a big attraction for the few bump fans over there.

    Winter Park, CO 5-7 and 5-8, 2022

    Looks nice but a shame about the Panorama lift. What's WP/MJ's YTD snow?

    Palisades Tahoe, CA 4/30/22

    @Patrick, you land at which airport for Mammoth, Reno? I just did a quick search; it appears that Alaska Airlines never reinstated the LAX to MMH direct flights after nixing them four years ago?

    Conversion from phpBB to Xenforo

    Yes, thanks for pushing this across the finish line. Even though I copied all of my FTO TRs into your forum last summer, I'm glad that we were able to save our content and keep this small (ok, extremely small!) community together. This forum still wins the signal-to-noise award in my book.

    Aspen, CO: March 10, 2022

    Harv's had a pretty solid record the last few years for cherry-picking days with fresh snow.

    Aspen, CO: March 10, 2022

    We're still trying, without success thus far, to have Harv cross the border into the Eastern Townships. :eusa-snooty:

    Vail Resorts Red Flags in 2021-22

    VR making news again. How do they catch people -- by doing face checks and asking them to remove their helmets and goggles? :eusa-think:

    Patrick's Eastern Closing Thread

    At the bottom of my Mont Édouard thread from 2010, there's a link to the article Guido posted after his 2002 powder day there. The formatting is messed up but you can still read it. Valinouët was on my itinerary for that 2010 visit; however, it was having a poor season and my hosts told me not...

    Just southwest of Pitztal is the Kaunertal Glacier, which got a very positive report yesterday with what looks like excellent coverage.

    Greek Peak, NY Feb 19-21, 2022

    Yeah, the northeast has always been, to use Tony's term, volatile; however, it's obviously gotten more so in recent years.

    Patrick's Eastern Closing Thread

    Harv, do you have the "official" numbers from the ski area to compare to yours? Time to break out this Gore discussion from the Eastern Closing thread.

    Patrick's Eastern Closing Thread

    It's fascinating how more than a decade of Harv nudging Gore's marketing department to provide accurate snow reports hasn't paid off. I guess they don't think that it's worth the effort for their core audience.

    Sunlight, CO 3-22 and 3-24, 2022

    In an article from yesterday: Sunlight, for example, will install a new triple chairlift — actually not quite new, it’s Arapahoe Basin’s fixed-grip Lenawee, which is being replaced with a high-speed quad — as part of the final phase of its $4 million East Ridge expansion project.

    Patrick's Eastern Closing Thread

    None whatsoever. I broke my femur at The Canyons in April 2002 and was skiing eight months later, then broke my tibia at the end of January. The tibia took far longer to heal but I was back on the snow the following December. No injuries since then!
