    Yesterday’s powder day at Snowbird brought me up to 9.
    4 killington , 1 sugarbush, 1 Alta, 3 Snowbird
    I’m heading to the bird again today for day 10. This is the last Alta-bird day on my pass so I’m planning a half day at solitude tomorrow before my flight.

    Sorry I missed you. I love the Z90s but wish I was on something a bit more off-piste oriented.

    Day 4 on Saturday. Typical sunny corduroy day except for some emerging bumps on one of the steeper runs. I lasted a little longer on the groomers than I did on the powder the three weeks before.

    Day 11 at Breck was very good and possibly very bad. We started off doing laps on the single blacks on Peak 10, then did a couple on Peak 9 before heading up 6 chair. Was my first time on Horshoe Bowl and enjoyed the hell out of it. Snow there was slightly firm, but grippy enough to make good turns and not have any slipping. Unfortunately, after we did our last run there we were just heading onto a passageway towards another area when i didn't realize there was a two foot dropoff going from left to right as i was turning, slid and fell with an abrupt stop against hard snow pile on edge of trail. Bindings didn't release and right knee twisted badly. Abrupt end of what had been a fun day. Hoping it isn't a premature end of the season.

    I'm in the same boat. Had MRI yesterday and awaiting the diagnosis from the orthopedic surgeon i went to. Should hear something tomorrow.

    Hoping it's not end of season as i have a trip planned for Whitefish at end of this month.

    Hoping for 60 today. This a.m. I sat in the truck deciding between JHMR and GT. I chose GT. Also had the bright idea to have the resort shop change my wax to super cold (-10 at the top).

    So here I sit with a power outage. Auxiliary power is now spinning a lift but I have to decide whether to risk a lift stoppage in -5-10F. Given my record today I’ll wait for full power...and...can’t have my skis before then.

    I’ll just have to replay this week’s powder in my mind.
