November 29, 2014 Hurricane Ridge
« on: 11/30/14, 11:34 AM »

It was a slippery, snowy drive from Silverdale to Post Angeles.  The ranger at the booth assured us there was an upside-down snowfall---accumulation along the coast, but not much more up on the Ridge.  After my wife and I did a short hike to Sunrise Point, I happened to notice that our skis were in the car.  Cheesy  The 10 degree temperature gave very light powder, but only about 6-8" atop a base of grasses and dirt.  I did 2 laps on the Lodge Run of about 300' each, stopping when I heard the clattering sound of stones massaging my bases.  Not much coverage, but the sparkilng clear views and first freshies for us this season made for a nice day out.

It was fun seeing you guys up there on Saturday. Jan and I went back up on Sunday for another snowshoe hike out along Sunrise Ridge. Seeing some of our favorite runs turning white is definitely making us anxious for a couple big dumps so we can break out the skis!

I was wondering if anyone was making turns up there. Thanks for the report!

Don't bring your Goodes out of storage yet, Doug   Wink

But don't we all love the Ridge in those crisp conditions???
