    Hey Carter, You guys going to have some new guides out there this year?

    We booked a while back for a week in Feb but Aramark showed no guides were available. Just figured I'd call to rental shop Dec 1 to get the real scoop.

    Jason, as you know, the best way to get the real skinny is to call the rental shop. Got to wonder if the week you booked is already full, and there isn't a guide. BUT........Joel is majic about that. C- Res. has to go by the book and Joel can tweek the board. Not to worry......yes we will have a couple of new guides. That should not affect things. We will get them up and runing and make sure they know some dirt.

    Don't like to do this......weather is showing a big dump here in town on Saturday. 5-8 inches.....I can only hope we have ground freeze up top so if any of the storm goes that way is stays on the ground. Usually the first 2 weeks in Nov. are teasers.......snow then melt.....hope not...." do the dance".....

    So, they finally updated the webcam. Lots of snow in the parking lot. Remember, what we get in the lot is double at 10,000 feet. So I say its looking good. I'll be up there on Tues for a refresher course in Avy stuff and I'll have a look and let you know. My guide sled is put together and ready to rip........Dance, Dance, Dance...........

    It's suprising when and where info comes my way. Talked to a local friend who rode last weekend. Over the windshield deep and of course early season bottomless powder. He said it was a great day riding......

    Went up Tuesday afternoon to do a refresher course on Avy training.....took the 850 for a quick spin around the parking lot...oh boy......and that's all I'll say for now. Nathan says its good riding. He can't do much but did get a few turns. Not trying to be vague but my first day out will be Monday the 10th......more later...

    Pictures are of trails and banks of snow along the highway......I ride powder in weadows and trees far from that what you are seeing. Pushing 2 feet yesterday. I won't play the pissing game. I'm in the snow every day. Conditions are real good and Feb. is coming........usually the best snow month. See you on the snow.

    I realize one graph can't tell the whole picture, but it looks like the snowpack at Togwotee is around average for the time of year.

    The last couple years out there were much above average snowfall, near record highs at times. So maybe something closer to average is feeling below average in comparison?

    These graphs show snow water content not depth. So at the end of last spring there was the equivalent of 35"+ of rainfall in the snowpack at the snotel site.
