March 8, 2015, Sugar Bowl (at Buttermilk)
« on: 03/09/15, 10:53 AM »

Skinned Tiehack lift again then higher along the ridge toward Snowmass for a few hundred feet more vertical and dropped into untracked mellow north slopes of 5" powder that led back to the base of West Express lift at 8800'.  A 600' area skin provided enough vertical to ski back to my car where I dried gear and watched my hero Klaus make his fifteen minute laps like Swiss watch clockwork. Of course it was a low wind bluebird day with lots of families barbecuing at Restaurantless West.

Then back in town in search of a restaurant I ended up with a 10 bar hop pass, but that's another story unrelated to skiing. Alcohol at altitude. Yikes.
