That would be a start.
Today was a terrifying WROD. I just cannot get over how busy it is up there. Life flight showed up and patrol came down with a sled loaded and hauling the mail faster than I've ever seen them go, yelling at people to yield. Clearly not a good situation whatever happened. At the same time, there was nobody slowing people down anywhere except the bottom of Bear Hollow. This is my 10th season skiing there. There has been such a degradation of early season mountain prep compared to the past, I just don't get it. That combined with the massive (I'd estimate at LEAST 100X, I'm not exaggerating) increase in skier numbers, and it's so unsafe. I had the opportunity to buy a midweek PowMow pass and now am seriously regretting not doing so.
@4ster the snow reports are pretty exaggerated--yes, the upper mountain got a lot, but it's still not enough to safely venture off-piste. The groomers are a madhouse. I'm not sure if you're out here yet, but you might hold off until PM opens.
