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!

We skied north to east aspect BTL. Very sheltered area. Not very supportable. Boot pen was almost to ground. Ski pen was fine. No collapsing, no cracking. Winds were rocking ATL. Great turns and smiles all around!
