Ski Report - Early nice sun on the upper mountain, great grooming on the "new" big skier Pro Course...perfect smooth packed pow (?) corduroy to a very icy MIFB - nice and fast.  Repeat. Repeat! Oh, should do LS - nice but not as nice.  Did one run down into the far north of GV Chair - west face-ish area, pleasant.  Another LS and then back to Hamster in a treadmill world - rodent was having fun.  Didn't check out much other than a number of GV Bowl bumps center to far skiers right close to that incredible fast and steep and smooth "new" this season Pro Course.  Rocks are out there, picked up a number of them in MIFB - why? for the folks that like to ski over them, otherwise the rocks just provided objects to ski around. Some softening on the lower groomer runs off of REX, but it was just a little to "fuzzy" for optimum mush.  Had some nice runs with the Ferks!  Always fun.
Other - Views today were incredible - ultra dark clouds south with perfect waves of white clouds surfing over the Cascade peaks, huge lenticulars off of Adams and Rainier, beautiful oceans of clouds blowing through the northern passes (happy day at the Pass?  Haven't seen any posts from the northern stepchild this season (except for Stevens).   Fun day, some sun and mostly good vis, though around 11am the fog rolled in and it was gone for a while around the noon hour. 

Other Other - Still had the tape warm problem, so bought one the expensive huge breakfast logs this morning - ate half for breakfast and planned the rest for lunch - but dang it! CB lodge had Chicken Noodle - ouch! Oh well.  The log was still good on the way home.  

Other Other Other - Parking pretty typical, but the big bus lot actually had 5! The special folks area was massive (GOOD!), but only half full, rest of A from the Alpine Inn bridge was pushing well past half, Carpool lot had a car in it, rest of C 3/4 ish?  B lot had lots of widely spaced cars and rows passed the shuttle stop.   Drive up was ultra-happy cruise control, kept an eye open for any tall rodents - didn't notice any.   Drive down mostly pleasant till I got into the lowlands mess.   Fun Day for another never ending cruiser day - has improved my carving ability!

Hey ddk,
The run into the valley to the left of Procourse has a new name I heard from the cat drivers.
I don't think it will make the trail map. It is called Intercourse
Fun day,
Now let's get some snow action going on!
