Pacific Northwest Ski blog (and a few other places!)

Lots or reports from skiing around the Pacific Northwest, with some East Coast excursions thrown in for good measure

Here we go again – ski season 2011-12 is underway

Goodbye sleep-ins at weekends for the next 6 months. Welcome to long periods spent in a state of near hypothermia, crazy drives through snowy mountain passes, and hopefully more than a few deep powder days. Kicking off the season on November 19th at Mission Ridge was always unlikely to bring the latter, but like drinking Rogue beers, opening weekends with new boots are always wise to take easy. So we did, cruising Mission’s groomers in frigid, clear weather more reminiscent of mid-January than November.

We’re ready for Thanks Giving at Whistler now. Where the forecast is serious dumpage 😉

2 days: 5700, 5500

Season totals: 2 days, 11,200m vert
