Managed to get five laps on Symphony today before they shut down the alpine on both mountains.

You know it's puking snow when Fantastic was a blast at 1:30PM.

So, are they going to get the alpine opened tomorrow? If so, Glacier/Harmony first, then Seventh and then Symphony on Sunday?

Harmony and T-bars were open most of the day, peak was but then closed. I hiked it at 1pm in a crazy whiteout, felt like I was gonna get blown off the moutnain. million $ was pretty damn good.

What are the go-to areas when the alpine is closed? I found myself on whistler today at around 3pm and didnt have the slightest clue where to ski…just ended up on a bunch of crowded family type runs

Mt Baker seems a little too far for a day trip

Up all weekend to pretty meh conditions. Saw the forecast and extended it one more day.

Best. Decision. Ever.

Hip deep in spots. Mid Mountain was excellent for the few laps we did before we head over to wait at Harmony… which was all of five minutes before we had first tracks through Sun Bowl and first chair on Symphony.

Tons of deep, light face blower silliness capped off with a run through Flute Chutes.

I can't believe this is in my back yard.

You guys are making me really sad about my day up there on Saturday. Rain to mid station and fog the rest of the way up with periods of sleet. Icy trails and generally crappy conditions. Fast forward to today and I am at home minding the kids due to the strike and you jerks are pulling fresh tracks all day long. Arrrghhh, the humanity!!!!!

Too tired from surfing yesterday to go get up at 5am, even though I knew it would have been good. Oh well, cant have 'em all. Glad some people were able to get some
