After a two week west coast run, I am back at the Beav. Nothing like coming back to my home away from home. I saw so many familiar faces over the last few weeks it was awesome. Its such a great feeling to be surrounded by those who share my love of the mountains. Just simply awesome! The energy was great. Bring on February. Here’s the proof . . . enjoy the pics

Looks like great conditions

Conditions have been great. Get outside and check it out for yourself. Received this regarding one of our videos:

Wow. That was fun. Felt like I was really skiing almost. Thanks.

No thank you. Much appreciated. And always love the good vibes like this:

Was awesome to see you out there, what were the chances? Haha

Haha . . . The chances of seeing me on a mountain. That was a joke, right. Just like this great one-liner:

I was on the slopes when you were in diapers.

That’s great, that’s all I’m gonna write on that. And always enjoy when my readers like my pics:

By the was, this is a great pic. It could go in a ski magazine.

By the way, thank you.



It pretty much snowed all January. It dumped here, it dumped there it pretty much dumped everywhere. If you didn’t make it out, that sucks. Don’t worry. It will snow again. It snowed today, so no worries. In all seriousness, conditions are great right now. Pretty much every lift and and run is open everywhere. Coverage is great with a very high snow quality in most places.
