Alright guys, I’m gonna let you know up front…this conditions report does not contain any sweet lines, sick cliff drops or smooth backflips. I was not shredding pow and it was not “all time.”

I was rockin groomers at Heavenly today and I was rockin em hard. For 12,000 vertical meters.

They opened Stagecoach last week and hitting that up early is preferable to messing around with Stateline and the gondola.

I have to get something off my chest, I have a confession to make. I absolutely ignored every “slow” sign on the mountain today. Don’t tell the yellow jackets…but I was hauling ass. 

I mean look at the wide open groomers, they’re just asking to be bombed…and I was happy to oblige.

They opened a fun mini park off Comet chair but I blew it and didn’t get any photos of that. You’ll have to take my word for it until my next conditions report. Don’t fall off the edge of your seat. 

Hate to say it, but there’s not much hope in the current forecast.

Think I’ll head out to Kirkwood in the morning. Stay tuned!
