More video from last weekend

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

Here’s another sweet video from last weekend. Thanks Kurt, Kyle, Dylan and NCH first-timer Matt for coming out and enjoying the beautiful weather and fun conditions. As Kurt put it himself “it does show how good the conditions are up there when it’s raining at Alpental.” Indeed.

Sweet video form the yurt last weekend

Thanks to Rich, Josh, Jason and Rob for coming out and enjoying four days on mining pow at the yurt this past weekend. Here’s a little video guide Jeff put together. Just goes to show you can’t judge the conditions here in the North Cascades based on what’s happening in the ski areas.

Pow to be had in the North Cascades right now

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

We can confidently say we have the best skiing in Washington State right now. Pics from today. Forecast is for some precip with lowering temps. And we have a last minute cancellation, so we have 1 seat open for 3 days with a group of expert skiers starting this Friday. Call the office to jump on these seats.

Video from guide training this past weekend

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011

Great times, blue sky and blower pow at the Barron Yurt for our annual guides training.

Looks like the North Cascades will dodge the warm up further south. You could likely be skiing blower pow this weekend if you call and book a trip.

Excellent ski conditions in the North Cascades right now

Sunday, January 9th, 2011

Well, some one has to be in the office to report what we hear from the field. All our guides are up at the Barron Yurt, mining some great ski conditions under bright blue skies. Less than a week before we commence operations on Friday, January 14th. And a big storm a brewing between now and then.

Storms a-brewing, opening weekend looks likely to be epic

Friday, January 7th, 2011

Looks like we’re setting up for some great conditions opening weekend. From the meteorologists at UW: TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN MUCH COLDER THAN NORMAL THROUGH MOST OF NEXT WEEK. THERE IS ALSO POTENTIAL FOR A SIGNIFICANT STORM SYSTEM AROUND THE MIDDLE OF NEXT
WEEK.

We’ll take it.

We still have availability next weekend and into next week. And two expert skiers looking for two buddies on Saturday the 15th. Call the office to reserve your dates.

The Swiss Miss has landed. So good to hear the sound of the blades as she came in yesterday. 9 days until we commence operations. Still have some availability on MLK weekend if you want to get your heli on….
