I told myself that it would go if we got 8" of fresh. I woke at 5:30 to find only 7", but decided it was worth the risk. Skiing down 176th past the blinking red light was straight forward. Crossing Military Rd. had some route finding challenges. And a little K-rail maneuvering got me to the top of the line. I sent it shredding hard down the untracked goodness stopping just short of the Claimjumpers where I was tempted to stop and refuel. I thought better of it and skinned to the top of the run to destroy it again.

It's good photo I think. It reminds me of JP Auclair's ride to catch the bus!

That is a great ski! Note to all who hate busy skin tracks.............middle of town, and he had the whole place to himself!  The approache looked a little to dangerous for me though.

I did bust through the skin track on my second lap. But I also did drop from the top knowing the slope's stability before dropping in.
