We were not early birds, being unconvinced it would  have softened for much of the morning. Fun fast corn this afternoon wherever it had either  been groomed or skied at least a moderate amount. Peeked over at upper I but saw skiers  sending rolling chunklets down the hill  so  we stuck  to  slopes where we were  sending loose granular snow pouring  down the hill. We both really enjoyed  the afternoon there today. A- ;-)

Hill was fools only as most of the mtn remained shuttered today "due to conditions"
The volleys sure seemed to enjoy Rollen at day's end  Angry
But a few of us found good turns in unusual places on our way down to lot4
Looking forward to my newfound employment @ K2 tomorrow Wink

after a week at Bachelor it was nice to be back at a better than mediocre hill with enough pitch to make it interesting when the snow goes to ultra schmoo. final weekday of the season, which is bullshit, went well once the right side of Nash got skier groomed. This was only possible with the help of a great crew working on mountain to make skiing better.

Attrition was high after this morning's schmoo got chopped,
Upper mtn rode alright, even if it was a bowl side-only delight.
Precip intensified at half past noon, even those in rubber departed soon
Fingers crossed for a better tomorrow...

It was quite nice this afternoon on any  line that was getting skier love (or that had been machine massaged). So nice  of the  rain (snow up top) to hold off until the last run (other  than one round of mid-afternoon  showers), and to not really  get going in earnest until we were driving away.

Thanks to the  early birds for grooming the steeps for us!

Too bad Shot 8 didn't decide to go until after they were done. Would've been real easy to zoom-in on that one

Good clean fun. Mostly fast corn -  I only hit a few grabby spots in the  late afternoon. Busy but not as bad as next weekend will surely be as Spyder-clad folks are funneled our way from the southern and  northern resorts.
