Wear them and turn them on correctly
Yes I have a really healthy respect/fear of snow. I'm going to take an avy education course in January. Being super cautious until then.Be careful
Our snow pack is different out here
With the changing temperatures and precipitation episodes we have a lot of areas prone to slides
Happens a lot
Right off piste in Snoqualmie, Baker, and Stevens
Bought an ikon pass this year for use mainly at Crystal. Zero formal communication from Crystal or Ikon regarding them requiring reservation in advance of opening the system to claim your spot.
Now all weekend dates are booked through January... Crystals response was "come visit us on a week day"
Not an appropriate answer to those of us who still have jobs...
I bought an epic pass but they are doing reservations as well. They are holding "week of" reservation slots that are released on Tuesdays I believe. I think last moment trips will be attainable.This is why I did not buy a pass this year, as I ski at the spur of the moment. Not scheduled weeks in advance!
