Sat Feb 8 snowboarders 204007In honor of the first-ever Olympic slopestyle gold, we decided to feature a few of our favorite snowboarders in today’s photos. The Olympic Games are inspiring many of us to go bigger and charge harder, so we’re riding the wave of the excitement as we ride the 17″ of fresh powder we’ve had this week.

Snow continues to fall today and is expected to pile up all week long.

You can check out our latest pin-point forecast here.

We hope you’ll ride the wave of powder and Olympic glory along with us!

kelly026Winter has finally arrived!  We were all wondering when, and if, it was ever going to get here.  Although a little late, it has brought with it some magnificent, light, fluffy snow to make up for it.

We have had 11 inches of snow last week, 15 inches of new snow this week and 9 to 21 inches forecasted through the upcoming weekend.

The slopes are in prime shape right now, every turn inspiring the next.  Effortless floating and gliding, creating a bliss that only a powder day can.  It is guaranteed to put a smile (and maybe a little powder) on your face.

Check out this photo gallery and picture yourself here, consider it inspiration and a nudge to make plans to come join us on the mountain this weekend.

HOWEVER…

If you were here at Brundage this morning, you know we gave Disneyland a run for the title. We woke up to another 5 inches of fresh, fluffy snow this morning.

THEN, the sun popped out just as the lifts starting towing the lucky  powder lovers up the mountain. Personally, I underestimated the glory of the occasion. I was expecting to find a few stashes that were knee-deep. I did find some knee-deep turns on the runs groomed last night. I also found more faceshots than I ever imagined!

But, enough talk. Here are the photo highlights from one of the best Monday mornings on record. (Click on any photo for a larger view of all the photos): [Read more...]

020114019I’m not sure if it was the fresh snow, Diva Days or the spirit of Winter Carnival, but whatever forces came together yesterday brought us one of the most festive, fun days we can remember!

Let’s break it down:

The Snow

After a stretch of sunny days, (and foggy ones where many of our visitors live) you can’t discount the effect of 14 inches of fresh snow over a three day period. [Read more...]

As the snow piled up and temperatures dropped this week, conditions just got better and better. Here are some video highlights from our friends at Peak Video. Just click on the photo to the right – we hope you enjoy this as much as we do:

photoday001It was a powder perfect day on the slopes for everyone.  We were lucky enough to have the pros from Peak Media on the scene to capture the fantastic conditions on film.  I was happy to tag along, take some photos and share the adventure of the day.

Check out these photos as the sun pops for a brief stay on the powder perfect run.
