The snow train continues from coast to coast. Last weeks’ storms produced over 4 feet of snow in some areas with even more snow to come. And this was just the follow through from the preceding system last week. The northeast will be deep on Sunday into Monday. The powder party has begun my friends. Powder to the people.
Here are some pics from my last powder run.

It was another great week in the sierras. Conditions are great on the mountain with fresh snow around. Not much better than surrounded by good friends and fresh powder.

Hey Pow Hound
Yup you know it. . .fun fact I once named a company Powder Houndz.
Received this from one reader when I asked he received my blog:
Oh yes I got it I was gonna read it after work.
After work is a great time, but if your bored at work then may be even better. Nothing like dreaming about the slopes while at work. Or this great response I received when I asked another reader if he received the blog
Yes loved it, loved the reference to my Warren Miller quote . . .
If you don’t do it this year you will be another year older when you do
Grateful for the Mammoth opportunity. Received this one-liner in regards to Mammoth
Mammoth. Nuff said
And not sure if this is true, but I’ll go with it . . .
I am looking at the Mammoth cams and though I just saw you on one of the Canyon Lodge Mountain cams
And received this from one reader when they found out I was California

Alive and well. Rode it out on the mountain, was filthy sic, with mounds of fresh snow. We live for this stuff. And yes is the answer to this readers question:

Hey man . . . hope your having fun on the slopes. . . just wanted to let you know that I put your sticker up . . it’s across the street from a restaurant on S Howard called “Daily Eats”…it’s facing a parking lot so everyone crossing the street to go to the restaurant should see it . . it’s a higher traffic area so many people should see it…shh, don’t tell anyone I did that because we are not supposed to.
I won’t tell if you won’t tell. Just like this guy we get peeps who want the goods . . .

Conditions look great for the week

This was just a fraction of what we received. Thanks again for all the awesome feedback. You guys rock.
The conditions right now are really good. Epic is some spots, no doubt. Snow is currently still falling in the high country. Coverage is great. Everything is open, nearly everywhere. Snow quality is very good currently. Enjoy it while it lasts.
