Jones-ing to get on my new boards, but don't want to give them core shots on the first day either.

Anybody checking out Jump Creek or other likely objectives?

Not sure about anything >2 hours away, but I know there is decent snow closer.

My early season mottos are "Ski light and you'll be alright" and "All skis are rock skis".

Some aspects had nice recrystallized powder:



And others had rare December corn thanks to the recent inversion:



I sure do love inversions, but would like a little more snow to build the base.

I skied both days last weekend (dec 3/4) out of Mores Creek Summit, a little over an hour from Boise. At that time the snow was already 2 weeks old and starting to turn a wee bit crusty, but there was still enough fun powder in the trees off of Pilot Peak that I was glad I brought my fatter skis. I didn't hit any rocks.
