General Comments
We are having a sun-shining, snow-sparkling, superlative slopeside Saturday. Four inches of fluffy fresh fell in the last 48 hours, setting up gorgeous groom and picture-perfect parks (Superpipe and Fireweed have comps). With light wind at this time, we're expecting an all-open day for our lift-served terrain. Superbowl is unlikely, FYI. You're probably already on your way up to carve corduroy. If not, you may need to converse with your carpool constituents. Today being International Tongue Twister Day, that chat might look like this: "Peter Piper, pack the Prius with piles of purple ponchos, powder pants and Portlandia paninis." Or perhaps this is more your style, "Susie snowboarder, suss the Subaru for skis, snopark sticker, sunscreen and supergreen smoothies of savory superfoods." If you can pronounce those proclamations or hand-sign something equally perplexing, you're probably prepared for the drive. Come spend a sunny Saturday on the slopes!
