December 13, Hyak
« on: 12/13/15, 11:37 AM »

Showed up around 7:30. Watched a few people struggle down what appeared to be a pretty crusty back side before turning back to the front side runs. ~6-8" of new was heavy but the upper elevations were a blast on wide skis and steeper pitches. Intermittent sun started to make things pretty heavy and we bailed around 10:30 after tracking out all the fun stuff. Pretty soggy down in the parking lot but it's still snowing up at the Commonwealth!

Hummm.....not sure we were at the same place. Got there about 9. unclear during most of the day if we were engaging in a water sport or a snow sport.

But a excellent workout. The gym has nothing to replicate the workout of skiing chopped mashed potatoes
