Checking in with the athletes during a weather day at Kirkwood

My buddy is in Tahoe right now and was skiing Squaw Valley today.  He got there early, waited 45 mins for the lifts to open after the regular start time and was booted outta there after 6 runs.  He even got his money back.  Huge amounts of snow and pounding winds put the mountain on lockdown and a tree has fallen over highway 80 closing it in both directions.  I’m sure the snow is falling just as hard a short ways south toward Kirkwood

The Subaru US North American Freeskiing Championship was postponed today due to weather.  Forecasts are predicting upwards of 4 feet of new snow.  Yup, that’s right, 4 feet of freshies from Thurs night to Saturday for the competitors to ski  The competition is going to be mind blowing and weather permitting you can watch the action here via a LIVE feed.  Click here for results from yesterdays Qualifiers.  Get your popcorn ready and enjoy!

In this video, the Europeans chime in on the weather day. Stoked to be here after a low snow year over the pond…
