November 30th - Vantage Sand
« on: 11/30/13, 06:33 PM »

Desperately seeking snow and going stir crazy in the house, we decided to load up our gear and take a mini road trip to Vantage for some turns. On the drive from Leavenworth, the clouds never lifted, the temperature never rose and the frost never melted. It was cold on arrival to the dunes but we were determined to get some freshies. It turned out to be a pretty good day despite the lack of snow. Here's a little video of our turns: http://www.flickr.com/photos/vogsventures/11143347556/

Good work! I'm quite jealous at the nature of the skiing down those dunes! I tried poaching a few turns at the OR sand dunes a few years ago, and was able to skin up without skins and had to push my way down the steepest section... i think it was too late in the day and it was just all mank!

So glad I made Monday a better day for those going back to work. And I think the snow in the mountains did too! Cheers and lets hope for more snow and cold temps.
