Looking for back country riders here in Bend. Snow has Fallen time to play on the cascades. [email]
Skied Teton Pass today. Pretty hacked up on the typical low-snow runs. It was warm and rain/snow mix so it'll probably be crap if it gets cold again. We need another good dump, so hopefully it's coming!
Great skiing on Togwotee Pass, Wyoming today. Plenty of coverage at the top of the pass.
Great skiing at Grand Targhee, Wyoming today. Should be excellent tomorrow as well. I guess Teton Pass is skiing decently and Togowotee Pass is skiing great.

Hey bc community, if you've ever wondered what the skiing is like in Central Asia...http://vimeo.com/24968052. Give a shout if you'd like to hear more about our project. Enjoy!
Very cool! Thanks for sharing!!
Our Tahoe-Sierra bc community continues to seek healing from the loss of our inspirational friends and heroes Allison and Kip. A memeorial service will be held this Thursday at OVI at Squaw (2 pm) and a bunch of friends/family will be skiing Squaw before the ceremony (10 am KT).

Winter Weather Advisory for Tetons!
17 inches in the hole, Giddy - up!
Durango finally getting some fluff!
Hoping the snow lines stay below 4000' tonight/tomorrow! Looking forward to exploring Cherokee ridge/Willamette pass tomorrow!
I would like to add the Siskyous to Southern Oregon's list of mountain ranges. Now that I know where the good stuff is, I think it is worthy of this sight. Also, I would like to include other "obscure" ranges of Oregon to ski: Mary's Peak? Steen's mtn anyone?
Very cool, let us know if you need any help
