Re: Winter Weather 2018 - 2019

I hope Utah does well, I had a skunk of a week trip last spring when I went to LCC. Hard pack & ice every day - late day with some thawing but not much corn. I am planning 2 trips next year, hoping for better conditions. Hopefully we will see some good touring in NY and Vermont as well.
Don't ski the trees, ski the spaces between the trees.

I just hope the west and especially the four corners area gets enough snow to keep us from another extreme drought fire season. Another winter like last is gonna be bad, very, very bad.

Alaska reports a 12 foot dump - yep, 12 feet of snow.

Alaska is a big state. This may help with your travel plans:

Radar says it's dumping at Snow Ridge. Sounds cheaper than a heli.

IF we get enough drones and figure out how to fly them in sync, maybe we could figure that out. What, no battery powered helis yet? It's 2018, people!

Better to meet in Anchorage- the report was from silverton mountain guides and the snow was in Seward.

I saw the article on Powder

Not sure how the battery power will hold up in the cold of Alaska but how about the poor man's heli?

I don't know, the Aleutian Islands are in the pink zone, I hear they are nice this time of year.

Ok, yeah, but I’ve been to Valdez and I can confirm that there’s a pool table and a toilet there, as well as more bars then a town that size has any right to. I honestly don’t think I’m tough enough for the Aleutians
