Jan, 4th 2014 Skyline Ridge
« on: 01/06/14, 11:41 AM »

Pretty busy on the trail but found at least 10 inches of bone dry blower. The willows down at the bottom are still not covered so it made it pretty challenging getting out at the bottom of the tree line. Best turns I have had in a long time!

If I'm not mistaken, you two were the fastest moving splitboarders I've ever seen. You also have the most serendipitious timing, as the hoard of slowshoers on your tails delayed our first lap by fifteen minutes with all their group photo requests ("can you take a picture of us?" "mind taking one with my phone?" "ooh, get one with my phone, too, please!" "do you think the lighting is better over here?" "can you take a few more, I don't like the way my smile looks in these")

But I digress, I've never been particularly good at saying "No." Esp. to groups of athletic women in stretchy ski pants...

Right, most are slow as molasses. And more attracted to pow pow than Shoer's in tights.

So that was two minutes for photos and the other 13 to take in the scenery?  Wink

If by "take in" you mean consume and "the scenery" this (well, the tallboy variety), then yes.

That was my first trip up there, that will be the last time on a weekend for sure. or I need to leave the parking lot by 5:00am. But it was fun thinking about the million people over at Stevens. That parking lot was a junk show.

And we had to stop to take some pictures for a nice lady and her dogs.
