April 14, 2005, Paradise Mazama Back bowl
« on: 04/14/05, 03:58 PM »

Andy ,Regine ,Gary,Jeff and myself had Paradise to ourselves.Jeff and I skied from Alta Vista east down to the road giving us a quick taste of the effects of the morning radiation. So we happily skied the back bowl destroying  north aspects in medium to light density. good skiing. Solar radiation killed all east and south aspects. Some wet sluffs were coming off rocky areas of 911 (southfacing). About 3 " fresh over a slight crust then another 13" or so of heavier unconsolidated. North facing was minus the crust of yesterday.Surprise ,cornices are finally forming in April! The return run down west facing Mazama was also excellent skiing.Visibility was come and go  Snowing as left. More good news!

does a worm sh*t dirt?  

but you know, it's more exciting without... Cool

Victor falls eh? okay.  but you can't go too fast.  i only have one gear: 36-18, and no shocks.
