    Colorado got 4" above 9000 ft. It's going to be a huge winter for all western ski resorts.

    Seriously hoping this is the case. Right now our reservoirs are the lowest they've been in decades, we could really use the moisture up here. And, the snow.

    I don't ski or snowboard or anything, but I've been part of a huge cabin rental in Big Bear the past two winters and it's fucking amazing. It feels like a different part of the country op there in the middle of winter. Definitely recommend.

    I think we've had 12 people that the last two years, but there are houses of all sizes. The place we had last year very comfortably slept that many people + had tons of room for people to totally find nooks and crannies to wander and around and be alone, and it cost less than $200/person for 3 nights. You have to book way in advance though. I usually go in February.

    Sounds intriguing.

    I took my kids skiing a couple years ago, and my god, I don't know how people afford it. I mean, I would have to get ski equipment for everyone at some point to avoid renting all the time, but STILL. Also, I hadn't been skiing in 12 years and my knees ached afterwards.

    Amy, the trick is teaching them to ski ASAP so they don't need (expensive) lessons and can ski with you. For example, Kids under 7 at Mammoth are Free and kids under 13 are only $30. The other trick is to rent in town before heading to the mountain, which is cheaper and you don't have to invest in equipment that they outgrow.

    As for your own equipment, the best thing to do is visit a ski-show like skidazzle and just load up at a fraction of the price for normal retail.

    Thanks, Wes. We did do lessons that time, and I tried skiing with them a bit after, and I felt so bad for all the times my dad skiied with me when I was a young'n. It's fucking HARD picking up kids and getting them going all the time.

    I think I'll just sled down my hill to get to school next snow storm, because this snow from yesterday is ice today and will stay there till next storm on Friday. It's a balmy 40 degrees in my house, much warmer than the -4 I just worked in. I left a metal waterbottle in the car today and my lips stuck to it.
    As I write, I am wearing fleece lined leggings, thermal shirt, fleece lined hoodie, a sherpa robe, a blanket, alpaca wool socks and house bootie/slippers. My face is fucking freezing and I'm contemplating just drinking a lot of whiskey instead of turning on the heat.

    One inch of the white stuff at my house last night. Not much, but totally unexpected after the last storm petered out.

    Has anyone here with an AWD vehicle ever had the CHP check that you are carrying chains, or actually made you chain up during the strictest chain restrictions? We now have an Outback, and technically it should never be chained up. But I'm not sure if I should purchase some anyway, just to say yes, officer, we have them, if we are asked. Tomorrow will bring 5-10 in to our local mountains and we'll be heading up there to play.
