This was from a week ago (3/23) -gorgeous day on the slopes with plenty of hard packed snow with a bit of powder on top from snowfall early in the week. Perfect for spring skiing. Weather was warm though so I imagine the snow will not last unless there is more snowfall in the next week or two.

There are double blacks at Dodge Ridge! Change the 0 rating! Been going there for 20+ years. When there is snow, it has always had friendly, quick service.

Another great day on the slopes with one of the MSU Dawgs Nicky P “77”. Snow is super and crowds are scant. With a 4 day pass you can’t go wrong

Got 7 inches over night. Still some stumps and rocks to hit but overall an amazing day. Lines on CA side were much longer than NV side. Galaxy and Dipper were nearly no-wait and tons of fun to be found in the trees

Mixed precipitation at Alpine Meadows but very good snow conditions overall. No crowds to speak of. Poor visibility off the Summit lift with the first 300 vertical in the clouds. Expecting a few inches of snow today. Tomorrow and Sunday should be excellent!

First timer at Homewood today, loved it. Mellow crowd and tons of fresh snow. Quail’s Face goes deep, fresh tracks everywhere. Hoping for a few more powder days at Homewood this season.

Another great ski day at Squaw with 15 new inches of Tahoe Talcum last night. The view is off Red Dog overlooking the Lakeview Trail. Drier snow up above 8000 feet and overall excellent conditions with another foot of POW tonight. Yes and the crowds are friendly, c’mon up.

Beautiful day in Alpine Meadows. Icy groomers in the morning, but the beautiful weather quickly turned that in to playful spring conditions. No lift lines whatsoever. Move around the mountain throughout the day and where able to find great skiing all day long. Picture is from the Treeline express lift. Riding The Moment Commander 108 for the first time, great all mountain ski.

Excellent conditions at Squaw with no line more than 10 minutes all day Friday. More cars in the lots than skiers in the slopes. Photo from top of K22.

Friday’s 30-minute lift line at chair 6. Saturday is going to be even more crowded. Many people not taking mask wearing seriously. You’ll be elbow-to-elbow with exposed noses and exposed mouths.

It turns out that it is possible to have too much powder. 3 feet+ on top. Find a track out or you’re getting buried. Thanks for a great day Homewood!

Had a nice day at the 'wood 12/28. Getting tickets for pickup wasn't too complicated, and grabbing a few hot cocoas for the kids was contactless and socially distanced. In the Covid era Apres is a little different but we were there to slide down the hills. Snow was packed powder with a light dusting on top and made for nice riding. Terrain was a bit limited as the top still had quite a bit of uncovered rock, the backside was closed and no terrain parks were open yet. All in all it was a nice day. My kids mostly hung out on the Solitude lift and had fun.
