Silas looked lonely atop Knoll 0 this morning... too bad the safety coordinators wouldn't let us go join him

Hmm, Silas didn't seem lonely when I went through the gate yesterday morning. I recall several attractive young women and a lot of shouting. But it may have been due to hypoxia.   Wink

This Hero must be training for something cuz he was at Alpental again yesterday.
No reason he should be there otherwise, gates were closed and not a female in sight.

I believe Silas has been reading between the lines of my padded seats reports... I thought he would've learned his lesson about doing that the day we all showed-up to a crusted-over Denny Mtn w/ no open gates back in Dec. Wink

Well we saw Silas at JH, even on snow but he had no skis on.
So I say Silas, grab your gear let's go! Next time I hear from
him, he's in town doing yoga and wants to know where the
after party is going to be:-) it was at the Mangy Moose, Silas.

Perhaps it was Silas who walked-out the door of the Moose with its namesake entryway carpet? Wink

will they pass the lightness test?
If over 2lbs I'm not sure he'd give a passing grade.

Shook hands with the Wildman this AM in Lot 4, but his Tercel was nowhere to be found come time for afternoon apres.

Probably for the best as the late morning warmup did a number on the mid-mountain.
