June 16, 2012, Silver slopes
« on: 06/16/12, 04:01 PM »

My daughter gave me one of her rare days off for a father's day tour!  Fortunately we got a break in the weather, only precip was a brief shower.   Warm temps made for slightly slushy skiing.

Nice father's day tour Silas, and just a touch of pink.  Smiley

The road is drivable to continuous snow ~0.35 miles from Windy Pass, with a few drifts a hundred yards or so below that should be passable to most cars after today's traffic in and out.  Got a break in the weather between 10-2pm without any rain and pretty warm temps radiating through the lingering fog. The poor visibility on the upper slopes never really broke up and the snow was a little slow. Found sightly better turns in the W bowl than the E.
