4-9-10 stevens pass hat skiing
« on: 04/10/10, 07:45 AM »

kinda short, but sweet.

Passed the filling lots at the resort for the empty one next door. I was fortunate to hook up with a couple of great partners for the day(thanks Bonny and Gordy!). We shared trail breaking through joyfully deep snow with some still falling.

Our first lap through the trees delivered hat skiing* and the most face shots I have had all season. So we did it again.. and again... and again... and again....... Snow was still great up higher when we left at 6 pm(although well tracked). The lower section was getting pretty heavy and challenging to ski.

I am sure we could have found some, but we saw no signs of instability where we went.

*when all you can see is the persons hat when they are skiing
