April 3, 2013 Pacific West Ski Area (aka Hyak)
« on: 04/03/13, 05:01 PM »

Managed to get skinning by noon.  Pretty good conditions for skinning, firm with a little mush on top but not problematic.  Skiing down was on a variety of rough surfaces; little sun cups, groomer tracks, ski tracks, boot tracks, dog poo.  Still, really decent skiing though as it was mostly softened.  Did 4 laps on the front and now its time for some barbecue.

Hmm, wonder how I missed you?  TNT and I skinned up 330-415PM behind a gal with her two year old in a backpack and in front of a dad and daughter.  Nice creamy snow, only slightly sticky.

Simple answer.  I left just before 3pm.  I didn't want to miss my date with pulled pork.
