« on: 03/27/12, 09:34 PM »

Zack and I got a late start, mainly due to my erroneous doubts about the weather, heading up through the Phantom Trees around 11AM.  We were fortunate to see a telemarker skiing the waterfall section of the Phantom Slide as we approached the trees and learned from him that conditions were safe and excellent skiing.  An hour and a half later we also enjoyed the ski descent from 5400' in 12" of powder being warmed by the sun.

http://vimeo.com/39314251 shows the telemark skier at 11AM.

http://vimeo.com/39314528 shows Zack a while later higher in the slide.
