Silver Basin 11/11/09
« on: 11/12/09, 01:43 PM »

Had a great solo day up in Silver Basin, despite some patrollers warning at the top of chair 4 that "it would suck".  Got a lap in the basin and then skinned to the top of the king and got amazing thigh deep blower turns down the chute skiers right of brain damage.  Only one minor rock ding all day!

Unfortunately someone put in a skin track criscrossing my line later in the day instead of using the solid one already put in place.

Things got socked in right after my descent of the king so no pics of the tracks, but I bet everyone got to see em up there today lol.

Skin tracks happen...

Nice work.  Great pics -- though I have to admit I was really hoping that first once was Silver Peak by Snoq, not Crystal... Smiley

Nice tracks Dan.  I knew that someone must have been over there and were gettin goods.

It's funny that a patroller warned you that it would suck.  How could it have sucked?  The coverage was plenty to have a go and the snow quality... well, you know about that.

Skiers right of Brain Damage?  Is that Appliance Chute?

Life is going to slide by you one way or another
