Rocktober 11, 2017 Pebble Creek
« on: 10/11/17, 09:17 PM »

Telemack and Rusty Knees linked up with Justin Hauck in the parking lot at Paradise this morning.   We climbed in low visibility wind to a little above Pebble Creek,  turn turned and skied some low angle snow filled gulleys almost down to the panorama point trail junction.  The forecast 1-3" was just barely 1" except in wind pockets.  Skiing was slow,  on a firm dust on crust, full of lurking sharks.  Beautiful colors down low, will soon be covered till spring.

Rocktober, check. 132 and 121.

Mr. Knees is being modest again.  He got 11 years with our miniature RockTAYberfest yesterday!  Cool
We could've skinned above Pan, but only booted.  Coverage was marginal for both hike and boulder-slalom, but it was good to get that first blast of wintery conditions.

Thanks for the report, your assessment and the web cam helps us lesser turns two thirds of the year skiers know when to come out of hibernation. Putting rock skis in truck for tomorrow if anyone wants a carpool.

Nice work, my bro and I are at 133. We pretty much started at the same time.
