4/12/2011 1:51:00 PM the tahoe local pass has saturday blackouts at northstar next year.. but the epic pass and epic local pass gives you saturdays...
4/12/2011 1:29:36 PM are you going to be back at northstar next year?  looks like vail is really trying to upscale the place.  saturdays should be alot emptier now with the saturday blackouts on the tahoe local pass...    BTW - if you get there early enough, is there any place to park that doesn't require taking the damn northstar bus to get to the village?  i hate that parking lot
4/12/2011 1:25:22 PM My advice having taught my 5 year old daughter and 3 year old son:   5 is alot easier than 3...    if you just want them to be able to go on runs with you instead of babysitting in the lodge, consider starting with skis...   Heelside turns and stops much easier for kids than toes..   Don't teach them the falling leave - once they get good at heelside falling leaf, they will never want to learn toes.  hard hard habit to break.
4/12/2011 1:17:09 PM I'm of the firm belief that little kids don't know what is good for them.   Kids don't usually like to do things they aren't good at.  They also don't like falling.. they also don't like being cold.  So if you listen to your kids, good luck on getting them to go outside and learn to ski or snowboard...  I'm pretty sure if given the option, they'll hang out in the lodge playing nintendo or watching a show on your iphone.   Fact:  Kids will like things they are good at.  My daughter and son both hated learning snowboardinging - cuz they were always falling.  It wasn't much fun- but, guess what?  Because I forced her to stick with it and because she is now an awesome snowboarder (at 7!) - she loves it!    Kids are sponges - they are amazing.  They will learn whatever you teach them.  Don't underestimate them.  And don't worry - they won't "hate the sport forever"...     
4/5/2011 10:25:02 AM I normally ride Sierra/Northstar/Heavenly -  I'm going to pick up a Epic Pass Local this year so definitely plan on hitting Vail/Beaver Creek.   Will be going for medical conference and there's two weeks available - was wondering what's the better bet snow-wise, early january or early march?   
4/4/2011 2:06:09 PM If riding alone: I think your best bet is to carry the Avalung, avalanche beacon,  and lobby the resorts/cell companies to improve reception on their mtn.   The avalung and beacon not going to do you much use if you are stuck under the snow and no one is out looking for you.
3/31/2011 9:49:10 AM my little 6 year old boarding since last season:        I'm pretty sure girls learn faster than boys.. I'm having a tougher time getting her little brother sliding down the hill - they learn skiing alot quicker..
3/31/2011 9:05:09 AM did i miss something?  Did they actually have any footage of the girl riding?     
3/31/2011 12:35:30 AM more details.. so sad: http://www.mercurynews.com/breaking-news/ci_17725139?nclick_check=1
3/29/2011 5:07:40 PM i don't think he posted the rescue clip yet.. but it's on the news clip someone posted http://www.krcrtv.com/news/27323338/detail.html
3/29/2011 1:38:18 PM two interesting products I found:   http://www.skialpine.com/lessons/flaik    Flaik is some sort of GPS+communicating system that allows real time tracking.  These are in use at few resorts' ski school to prevent loss kids...  Could be useful if you lose your buddy.    http://m.gizmodo.com/5726155/   2nd generation recon goggles with android has a buddy track system..  if you down the hill and you can't find your buddy - be nice to be able to pull up a map to see where he is...    Unfortunately, if these systems rely on cellular technology to relay GPS data back - it would be unreliable   Next season - I'll be carrying an avalung and a satellite PLB beacon when I go out in the trees on deep powder days.    The technology may not save you, but I'd rather stack the odds in my favor.
3/28/2011 11:40:14 PM saw this on the news.  riding up in shasta this past weekend.   this guy is quite lucky.  he must have had a nice air pocket to be breathing for over 1 hour: http://www.youtube.com/user/TheJdride#p/u/2/SVQWM2Axhvwhttp://www.youtube.com/user/TheJdride#p/u/3/qVsqpquTvUQhttp://www.youtube.com/user/TheJdride#p/u/0/Bs2k-dGeWt8
3/28/2011 8:47:45 PM anyone ride inbounds (trees) with an avalung?  I think I'm going to pick one up for next season..  I'm guilty of riding solo in the trees. How about a satellite PLB (personal locator beacon) - not an avalanche beacon, but rather, a satellite beacon that can trigger Search and rescue in dire emergencies - ie, lost/injured, no cell phone reception...
3/27/2011 10:09:04 PM problem with Mott and other in-bound areas @ Heavenly is how quickly things get tracked out..  I do love the firebreak run off of Olympic though - the powder stash there stays viable for at least 3-4 days after a storm if the temp stays low.
3/27/2011 6:25:27 PM Was leaving Sierra at Tahoe today when we saw bunch of ambulances as well as the El Dorado Search and Rescue truck. Found this article shortly after: http://edhtelegraph.com/detail/174843.html RIP
