yeah, everyone needs to jack down a bit before flaming! You can get off-season permits starting in Oct, 7 a day until it is filled up.
Thanks for the beta on the Lochsa snowpack, I just started running it last year and am jacked to get back on! Were you in there last year during the winter? Last lochsa season, so I'm told, was epic largely in part to the late spring, very little runoff until mid May. My last day on it was the weekend after 4th of July, the next weekend it was gone. There's another post on here that I linked to the water report, but that is so specific, as you know, just 3 sites of data.
Just got a bit more snow last night, but more in town than at the bowl, maybe more later this week. There's a lot of winter left to change things.... Mid Dec I was thinking pre-season too, fortunately winter showed up so we put in for a lottery season permit too, crossing fingers.
