« on: 12/18/16, 06:52 PM »

1 thread for the remaining of the season, i'm not starting a new thread everyday.
Anyone that gives deuce will understand and know what to do, smart crowd.

Anyhow, ddk pretty much got it right for today's Alpental report.

YEEEE HAAAA…WOOOO HHHHOOOO… mighty big fun screaming down the perfect groomers

While I'm not sure about that Roll Eyes, with this I can agree:

Crowds no were to be seen.

Nice drive up and a happy fast drive down.

Missed you both days this weekend, flowing alpy. But I sure didn't miss out on good turns off the High T. See you Tuesday, probably

Frozen but empty parking lot had the tourists spinning power donuts.
The firmness and lack of intense el sol kept the tourists off the lifts.
JTgoat was doing pizza and beer and adventures outside the ropes.
I spent most my morning grooming a pathway down l'international.

I was happy :-) Great to see you and your beautiful little one along with everyone today.

But damn, one thing I realized (again) by skiing in my compromised state is the Alpental is such a hard ski area. There really is no easy way down off of 1. I worked a lot harder for 5 runs today than I did yesterday at ski acres. Funny.

Easiest of the easy drives
Empty lots guaranteed a slopeside parking spot
Absent of a proper High T, the few that ventured beyond the gates mostly stuck to Sharon's knolls
I explored deeper than usual and took myself to magical places
Where the snow was soft and the turns sprayed faces

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Exciting drive with slush starting @ Exit 38
Early arrival put me in prime position to share the second doublewide padded seat
Slight delay allowed for sufficient crowd buildup - padded seats loaded right away
l'Internationale remained shuttered until 10, after which the fine folks in red opened up much terrain:
Snake Dance just after 11, Elevator just before 12, and Shot Six at 1:30.
Clipped a wing on a tree last lap through the gate, resting and icing and hoping to be good by daybreak

Open wall to wall before New Year's Day? Perhaps 2016 hasn't been so bad as we've all heard say

You mean as in potential fist fights breaking out?? I have the feeling I'm going to be getting in a wrestling/fighting match this year! LOL  First there was road rage, then air rage, now there is what will be called snow rage, it's the new thing.

Cornii pre ejaculation yesterday, destroyed the high traverse but fortunately left humanity intact. Snow Safety Mgrs. performed cornii maintenance from Sharon's to Chip's creating some impressive runnels and depositions. Thanks Fellas for making a portion of the trip to Piss Pass a lil less intimidating.

Only a few people were on the hill today while the snow stayed nice in all the usual areas, it was especially fluffy while meadow skipping. Entrance to Nash is almost kaput without a lil creativity.
Happy New Year Padded Seat User Group!

Take a deep breath Mister Miller, it's gonna be ok.
