A friend pointed me at Liftopia, a site that allows you to buy discounted lift tickets for many ski areas around the country. Unfortunately, most of my regular spots are not on here. Still, it’s worth a look.

Snowbird New Snow: 0" Base: 133" Surface: Spring Conds. Open: 71% (60 trails, 4 lifts)
Not too bad for May. I think I could deal with that…
I’m launching a preview release of a new service I’ve been kicking around for the last few weeks. SnowOnTheGo.com allows you to get snow reports delivered to your cell phone. To check the daily snow conditions for your favorite ski resort, send a message from your phone to the email address listed at SnowOnTheGo.com. For example, try it out by sending the message: “Vail”. What you’ll get back a report with the amount of new snow, the current base, snow surface conditions, and percentage of terrain that is open.
When you get back from the slopes, let me know how it worked out!
I just returned from my annual snowcat skiing trip in British Columbia. The snow was insane. Chi-Chi was able to join us this year at Baldface, hanging out on the snowcat, hiking, and relaxing at the lodge. I met a fantastic group of skiers and snowboarders from New York, Connecticut, California, and Hawaii.
I posted a
Analog Jump-Suit on eBay today. As far as I know, it’s the only Burton one-piece listed on eBay in the last few weeks.
Evade those tricky pranksters this year… He who sports the jump-suit gets no wedgies!

Baldface Lodge is reporting on their web site that the new chalets are finished and ready for the arrival of this year’s guests. It’s less than a month, now, that I’ll be headed back up to British Columbia to visit.
