Season opening!

Pretty much every resort in the PNW is opening this week or by the weekend, if they aren’t open already.  Timberline already open, Crystal and Meadows open today, Baker opens tomorrow with all lifts firing – it’s ON!  Seems earlier than usual, by about a month, but I’m not complaining as long as it stays.  If you haven’t got your season pass yet better get on it as I’ve got a feeling any deals are going to go away ASAP as everyone heads to the hills to cure their snow blueballs.

A couple pics taken at Baker on the 8th.

SCHWAAACK!

SCHWAAACK!

I can haz pow?

Ahhh NW flat light

Speaking of Baker, today is the last day to enter the Banker Slalom lottery.  Not sure how many people enter the lottery these days, but as you’re vying for 95 spots I wouldn’t hold your breath.

    baker is the only one that’s worth mentioning…crystal has 33 inch base and isn’t opening anything worth more than “hey, this counts as snowboarding.” Baker’s gonna open errthang. WHOA.

    mitigating_factor: that third pic. Do NOT grab your board if you’re not at least five feet off the ground. And please try not to grab it there…

    STYLE_MASTER: out.

    ps dont worry about the MBBS…if you’re in, you’re in. It’s more heavily rigged than a schooner yahurdme

    Well yea, yes and no on Baker. If you’ve got a pass a partial opening is better than nothing, but if you’re paying cash than I agree.

    Tailgrabs are all I can do :(

    unless that dude has Lew Alcindor hands, and is wrapping all the way around that far: he’s in violation of unacceptable grab placement. His sensible clothing precludes him from doing it all Airblaster-borrowed-ironically. That’s more tindy than anything else, I’m saying…

    at any rate, it’s not high enough to warrant any grab.

    RULES ARE RULES.

    Baker is going to be insane-o.

    he’s kinda throwing horns with his other hand…which may blow my whole shit out of the water and BOOM HE’S FULLY AWARE

  • Justin

    Hmm….I thought it was straight tail, no tindy, just a funky angle, but you may be right….

    By Baker you mean opening day or you mean you got a slalom spot….LOL

    COMEON BRO

    six feet of snow is very different than three…as is riding a place that has knobs stumps chambers zones etc compared to a place like oh let’s say hmm mt hood meadows… the only news here is Baker. don’t anger me.
