Title: September 21, 2017, Paradise

Once again you don't know if you don't go!  Given the weather forecast, I was thinking of pushing the ski day back to Friday but Greg only had Thursday available. So I added full goretex to the pack and joined Greg and Mark for the ride to Paradise. David met us in the parking lot and we ended up finding 4-6" of creamy settled fresh snow smoothing the old base with blue sky and no wind above 7300'. We skinned from the car and were able to ski back (rock skis) to the creek crossing (at 5800') below Alta Vista where the snow had melted off the pavement. Good to get 20 years in the bag.
