Don the owner of Mountain Opp's will be back from Colorado soon....Last I heard on a screw-up by Fischer, were to arrive in January...Man would love to ski them now as the powder is super....To cold for speed of any kind...Up...cruising....Down....See a window of opportunity this weekend and Monday...Will hit it as much as I can and I have to say the oldie e-109's are soooo good.....Got some decent turns in the last two days but the cold slowed everything down.....Course it was well below zero and you all know what that does....especially with serious winds pounding it with four more inches in three days...TM

Raining and that ends our little powder spree on Little Mountain for a bit....Have to think of going out to Three Pond Knob up in the Highlands as soon as the snow consolidates....Last few days has been a frenzy of powder....Deep and cold to yesterdays slight warming....That led to fast snow and man....did the Fischer Boundless waxable do the deed...Scored a few good pictures up by what we call the fingers where people fly out of some snow choked chutes into a turn zone with speed....Big gnarly trees in the background....Not bad....Then we headed down the East side...uhhh bout a thousand of totally wide open hardwood skiing...Drops...run outs....constant grade that just shrieks....FLOAT....Oh and the boys were in white floating heaven with natural Moguls....dips....double fall lines it has it all.....in waaay deep powder...Great skiing...TM

Man driving home from sauna was like survival Tele skiing....Sheeeesssshhhh.....Anyway the base is good up around here and when the cold rushes back in it will be "cruising" time....Probably long low angle rides to find new places and easy to get there.....See if there is some kind of great skiing not done before....Also get to places where Nature rules....Reality....Tele camp Sunday....Little incursions into the forest in the mean time....TM

Hardpack.....Here and there a patch of minimal powder so here and there you could get a bit of grip on the up...but...Couple of miles in was Telecamp and it was buried under tons of snow....Five minutes of shoveling got us in....Fire started.....Beer opened and windows shoveled so the sun could blind us....Blue sky and nothing but a glacial ice world in the bush....So Telekid roasted us a bacon lined sirloin and it was way good....Heading out was survival and it wasn't easy saving our collective a.... Waiting for powder which is supposed to come tomorrow...TM

Headed up Little Mountain with Telesven following Telekid's track...TeleKing was ahead somewhere up there....Got to the top and Teleking did a screaming shot down by us with powder flying and clouds of white...Bout 8 inches early in the Am and it was continuing...By the end @ a foot....Where steep and cutting into the fall-line the snow would scrape off the serious crust...so...had to head them down and the fun was unreal....Telekid on e99's...King on Fischer Boundless....Telesven and I on Rebounds....If you shot into a dip you could slice under the crust so had to be a bit cautious....We heads Southwest and down a segment we had not skied in a while....Beautiful small bowls of open Hardwoods into a contour sometimes steep sometimes mellow...Everybody had a great ski and if we had any energy we would have continued but the beer was cold and the thousand up and down was enough...CC today then hit it early tomorrow...TM

Even with the powder events then crust nothing has gone away...This last event was for 12-14 inches up in the Highlands....Soooo fast sooo good....There is a big kinda clear cut....kinda illegal over on another ridge with some decent looking potential skiing...Might hit that or go to Little Mountain and go nuts....Well more than usual....TM
