« on: 11/02/09, 04:35 PM »

with an elevation of 9,900 ' and the storm we had 3 wks ago there is still some cement standing. the TH is 8,600 and I skied down to about 9,100 - so a carry of 500 ' , not bad. kinda like summer. the snow was variable frozen/ corn. pre-existing tracks were definitely frozen ! I stashed the boots, so I'll hit it manana again. Currently not working. Temp in Reno was 75, with an avg. of 62 so almost 15 degrees above. thats why they call it an avg, cuz if its 15 degrees below avg, with precip thats white !   temp on the slope was 55.
