March 05, 2014 Mission Peak environs
« on: 03/05/14, 04:16 PM »

Took a spin up Mission, snow was completely saturated, had a few good turns above six thousand, but the rest of the way was horrid.  Spent most of the time trying to keep from being pitched over the handlebars, only thing missing was the gravy. One interesting observation, was a steep slope  (40 or so) let loose and partially covered two vehicles in the Mission Ridge parking lot.

They obviously should have dug a pit before deciding to park there.

I skied lower down today, 3000' elevation.  I made one ugly turn and scraped the ground the whole way.  Then I traversed, kick-turn, traverse, kick-turn... for 750 feet until I could whimper home with my tail tucked between my legs.  No slides or sloughs for me though.
