July 27, 2011, Table Mountain
« on: 07/27/11, 09:08 PM »

Low clouds all day but it did not rain. The cups on north facing slopes are getting bigger and firmer so we only did a couple laps. South facing slopes on Mt Herman were dirty and runelled so we skipped them.  Maybe a group effort sideslipping is necessary to make for more fun skiing?

Adams SW chutes, Shasta Hotlum-Wintum, Lassen NE face, Rainier Nisqually chute still sound in great shape, Baker probably is too.   There are no bad ski days, only bad skiers and ski locations.

We saw and heard all day one poor fellow working alone with a D8 to clear the visitor center parking lot, maybe the road will be open that far by the weekend.

Maybe take a couple of months off and do something else and wait for the coming fresh season.Huh?
Recharge the batteries.etc.
This Turns All Year addiction and streak/number chasing is harmful in the long run and dirty skiing is disrespectful to the snow IMHO.
Just a suggestion,
Belated happy birthday.
