The 19/20 Copper State Conditions Thread.



I missed opening day today but we had one heck of an opener storm dumping 25 inches by the time they ran the lifts today. Apparently patrol decided to open up several bonus runs including Volcano and Casino from midway down. I'm way off the back right now and just dropped off my new front side skis to be remounted to fit my boots as well as getting Cody's new skis mounted up. Jeez......I'm still not really in ski mode though and was happy to miss the crowd scene that was up there today.

Amazingly there's chance for a whopper next week, local weather man Lee Born is claiming up to 3 to 5 feet of snow! That might put us in the lead for base and totals in the country!? things were feeling real drought-y to me a few weeks ago and just like that things turned the switch. I'm kind of in shock right now, this is Arizona after all!

From powderchasers.....https://powderchasers.com/forecasts/EPIC-POWDER-WATCH-3-4-FEET-OR-MORE-OF-WHITE-FEATHERS-FOR-TURKEY-DAY-POSSIBLE-MID-TO-LATE-NEXT-WEEK.-

I'll be skiing all next week if there's enough to stay entertained. I'll report back then. :D

Not my photo but from today.

Spectacular!!!!  Just the kick in the butt I needed to remind me to drop my skis off to get tuned up for the season.

We’re back to more seasonal temps this week. Most of the snow is gone but I’m sure the resorts are pumping away at night. Was going to go ski today but I’ll do some yard work to finish off the winter prep.
Don't ski the trees, ski the spaces between the trees.

I don’t know if anyone looks in here but holy cow, tonight has been upgraded to 28 to 34 inches at treeline. That’s deep! Up to almost 70 total! Insane.
