July 26th, Artist Point Road Laps + BBQ
« on: 07/27/12, 05:02 PM »

Quick artist point conditions update.  Lots of snow at the parking lot:



The traverse into Grandma's is still in, but going fast, and the snow is reasonably sun cupped there:



Blueberry Chute(s) are still pretty fat, we did our best to mow the sun cups down by enjoying three laps there.  Hopefully the weekend crowd smooths things out for early next week:



Enjoyed an awesome sunset:





Bbqing complements lazy BC skiing nicely:









Should be plenty of snow for around 10 days of easy post-work turns for the Bham crowd.

Awesome line in your second-to-last photo!  Smooth, tasty, just the right angle, and you end up right next to the car.   Roll Eyes
