Early season riding and…….jerky?

Monday, November 29th, 2010

Whoa! Who would have thought that snow conditions would be so ripe at Thanksgiving?!!? All the local resorts are open, sporting their regular season rates, anywhere from 50-60 bucks. Night riding sessions are in effect for the next few weekends, moving nightly mid-December. Season pass sale is still going on at Mt. High and for you nor cal riders, how does 10 feet of snow sound in Tahoe!?! Not to mention the 8 foot base that Mammoth is sporting. Top to bottom riding, the gondi is rolling, and don’t forget the jerky place in Bishop. That’s right, jerky. Meadow Farms. Mmmmmmmm. Get on out and enjoy some of the best early season riding in years!! So grab your gear and head on out and enjoy the snow for us!!

Fresh Pow! and road closures :(

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

As most, if not all of you know, our local mountains (Bear Mountain and Mt. High) were graced with a dumping of fresh pow last week. I hear this is the first of three MAJOR storms to hit us this year. Hopefully this means that our season will continue well through April. If you haven’t been up yet to enjoy the fresh snow, head on up soon. Even if you just want to sled down some random spot next to the road, there are plenty of areas to do that.

What I don’t understand, though, is why after 4 clear and sunny days, the roads into Big Bear are finally open to everyone. Yup, they opened today and what happened? It snowed, again. Barely, but still. How much business did Bear/Summit lose with the road closure? A LOT. I myself chose the easier, clear, chain-less route of heading up to Mt. High yesterday. As did most of the people up there, I’m guessing. Why deal with a “one way in, one way out, go 35mph the whole way up”, when you don’t have to? I don’t claim to be any kind of road clearing expert, but I don’t think it should take four days to clear 5 feet of snow. What do you think? Bring in some more snowplows and shovels. Clear those roads so that when we get fresh pow we can actually enjoy it!!!
