I think they said you had to sign up in advance at Bobo's Mogul Mouse, but I'm prepared to be corrected.
You very well might be correct.

Wow, this picture from Rose's site is about 15 years old!

So far so good. A boarder and I tried to share the same space on the hill today. I just got a CT to make sure my inards are all where they're supposed to be and also see if the ribs on my left lower back are bruised, cracked, or broken. It was a pretty violent collision.
Oh no! Hope you are okay and heal quickly.

Considering the slow-er start for this season, Ashley decided to get some narrow-er skis to make things more fun. Excited for her to check em out this sunday!

I had similar agressive shaped SL ski's (Fischer RCR Supercarve) but told Trish they could be tossed a couple years after arriving on the west coast. Figured I'd never need them again but they worked very well on icy man-made snow. Oh well. I actually saw them in a thrift store here for $50 about 2 years ago (my bindings & stickers). lol

Hit up Sugar Bowl again today, expecting a few more chairs to be added to the rotation, but not to be. Making snow like crazy on Christmas tree but not spinning, nor was Lincoln. Snow was mostly good, although the wind scoured high spots were interesting. Impressed with the number of skiers/boarders going off-pist without any audible base and edge carnage, as it's still pretty boney.

Finally a little more terrain this afternoon. Watched patrol putzing around on the webcam for a bit late this morning so headed over hoping the ridge hike was opening and was maybe 30 min after the rope dropped. Snow quality was a little wind affected but best turns of the season thus far. It’s the little victories in these meager early seasons!
