What a great couple of weeks of skiing we’ve had! Below is our son Michael on Sunday the 11th. Pico opened on the 10th and we were skiing Summit Glades off the summit on Sunday in 6-8 inches of fresh beautiful snow. No big bumps or scratchy under layer. Just beautiful, natural, ankle deep, fresh powder. We skied Summit Glade and Birch Glades and it was as good as it gets for early season skiing.

That was before the rain! last Sunday… argghh!

After a thorough soaking of rain on Sunday the mountain is getting back in shape with some really great skiing.

Today we skied Needles and Bear Mountain and it was hard and fast, kind of a sugary, chunky groomed and re-groomed surface, but very edge-able and fun.  The terrain is limited again, with no natural snow terrain open, but they are opening all the main trails as fast as they can for the holiday week coming up. Peter and the Wednesday ‘Tele crew’ skiied East Fall, Cascade, and found fresh man made on Wildfire over on Bear and had great skiing.

Holiday week coming up, so a good time to earn some turns, do some nordic, or get out early. Enjoy!
