Here we go folks! Another season, another thread! Well, BP is off to a pretty good start. Typical early season conditions, with ATL having the best coverage.

On 10/14/18, A few sharks NTL. Other than that very nice for October! Charlie agrees!

On 11/6/18, Felt like mid winter! Zero sharks. Three laps. Bottomless. Heard two big whoomphs NTL, on a Northeast aspect. Following the CAIC , it looks like Northeast aspects are most suspect.
Staying hydrated...……

Today, 11/13/18
Struggled to find good snow, non wind affected, tracked out slopes...… Pretty much skinned around a bunch. One crappy lap and one decent lap.
Saw a good size avalanche high in Current Creek

My one good lap, though it was short, it was a good recon type day...

Post 15" storm for WP resort.
Single digit morning with not too much of a breeze.
Rode NW aspect NTL and BTL. Fairly dense snow.
No instabilities, no whoomfs, no cracking. NTL snow surface was a bit wind affected.
In at 8am, out at noon. To avoid the typical shitshow. 5 laps, did not cross a track!
