Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

I hope they get some snow. I have a ski-a-thon March 31st, and don't want to ride on firm hardpacked snow.

So I would like to request some snow, please [-o<

Thanks Matt! :)
