    Sunshine today. Lots of windpack on the top of the mountain. A little lower down on the head wall there is still some soft stuff Bumps in and between were skiing well. Firming up, are starting to get some good definition. Second bump shot to the south of Chief Joe's bowl has not been cut by boarder traverses and has a good rhythm. S'posed to get snow tonight. Think it will be warm as the weather man says rain snow mix in the snake river plain. Hopefully we get enough to cover up what will be a lot of chicken head death cookies from the chunks being thrown up this afternoon after the sun warmed things up.

    Another day- another Targhee. This is what skiing should be. And is here. Consistantly. Do we need mega chairs and overpriced gourmet food? If you don't have snow you just have an expensive, inferior mountain Disneyland. Started snowing at 9am and was still coming down when we left at 3pm. A little on the wet side, especially at lift bases. Threatened to turn to rain shortly after noon, but never did. Trees below GB&U were great. Creamy and easy. No death cookies and Powder Cache was sking well.

    Burn off all the fog and let the sun thru to the snow-(Neil Young)
    Sun shine and no wind. The usual conservative new snow total report. Gotta love GT for that. (BS reported .7 inches this AM. .7? why bother). Anyhow Targhee was a great place to be today-place was not too crowded for a sunshine day after. Snow was good, untracked stuff still found in the trees by the Chief Joe snow station late in the morning, but more skiers and boarders were hitting it as the day wore on. The crowd seemed a younger today, a little looser, and skiing in groups (flocks, packs, gaggles?). Think tomorrow will be a chore day.
