Jeff got to spend a quality week up at the yurt and put together this video from a couple of different trips.

Seat open on Monday for a standard heli-ski program. Good group of skiers. Conditions are the best of the season- knee deep blower. Call the office to book.
We have availability Tues-Thursday, then are fully booked for the weekend.
Here’s what Larry Schick Grand Poobah of Pow over at Ski Washington had to say about next week and the following:
By Sunday it will be dumping again and low snow level 1000ft. You’ll arrive to new snow on Sunday and it will snow all day. It will basically start snowing Saturday night and continue off and on (mainly on) until Wednesday – snow level rises slightly to 2000-3000 ft. Count me in – can you say “epic”? There will be 2- 4ft new over the period (Sun-Wed). Details are challenging this far in advance and could change, but expect more new snow for sure , with low snow levels! Now this is the big news….
It looks like the first half of March will be cool and snowy in the mountains – this is the classic Cascade La Nina consistency I have been babbling about since last summer – it’s here. Ya gotta go for it. I have many days already scheduled to take off from the salt mines for the next two weeks, so I will be hitting the new Cascade powder, as it continues to dump. I’ll try and get to updating this powder alert occasionally, but ya know, I got my priorities.
See ya Monday, Larry!
Some excellent snow conditions out in the North Cascades these days.
Rick Johnson and crew were here over the past weekend for three days of exclusive use. This short clip is from Sunday, warming up on Red Rocks Bowl leading into a 19 run / 30,000-plus vertical extravaganza of great pow and bluebird skies.
Jeff chases his shadow down the Lyall glacier:
Big storm with lots of precip forecasted for tonight and tomorrow. You should blow off Valentines day and come heli skiing on Monday or Tuesday. After that we’re fully booked until March 1st.
Thanks to Jason, Chad, Big B and the gang for coming out and enjoying some of the best ski conditions this season, along with two stunning blue bird days. Who says there is no good skiing and riding in Washington State right now?
Here’s a few shots from last weekend. Since then we have picked up almost foot of new. Snow in the forecast for this weekend.
Have some availability next week for you powder starved folks….
The North Cascades benefited from the last system that moved though last weekend, dropping around a foot of new. And now, with high pressure, we have both pow and bluebird skies. They say a picture is worth a thousands words, so what’s a video worth?
