Trying to escape the forecast rainy weather at Snoqualmie Pass, we headed south to Bend for sunny corn skiing.  Jimmy towed three of us with his sled to 7000' on the wilderness boundary below Ball Butte.  Unfortunately we found gray skies, breeze, and icy slopes above 7500'. The lads turned around at 8000' or so and skated down to 6800'. South west slopes of Ball were pretty much icy too down to 7300'. From there to 6800' was nice corn. The sled tow out was amusing.

Meanwhile it was warm and dry at Alpental.  Should we ever leave home in search of better snow?  Fun begins again Thursday I hope.  Good riddance Mr. Pineapplehead.

Time travel? Since you now know that tomorrow will suck, you can stay and your report will never be posted, which means that none of this will ever happen! I wonder if my cup of tea will disspear too?
..or maybe you went tomorrow anyway to ensure this continuum remains intact, and I still get my tea.
oh rainy day~!

Well, if you can't ski, you can always find a good beer to drink in Bend, I would suggest a RPM.

It would appear that Jake, yesterday (the 16th), responded to a now edited TR titled with a date of the 17th (one day in the future) from whence it was posted.
