March 13, Paradise Round Two
« on: 03/14/10, 10:16 PM »

24 degrees and snowing hard when we left at 3:30 on Friday. The storm continued to deposit up to 8 inches of very high quality NW powder. Arrived to find both our skin track and down tracks completely covered...clean slate. After the bunkhouse rendevous continued to Longmire where half of our party was first through the gate to Paradise. Beelined to the hill and broke trail (again).  Anyhow, the skiing was top notch and 13 laps later we were satisfied.

Wow, that is a big day.  I have never done half that many laps in a day.  Nice work.

I had one of my best pow trips ever in April of '08.  We were in the Tatoosh and it was deep and it was good.  There is still hope.
