April 16, 2018, Mission Ridge Surprise Powder
« on: 04/16/18, 06:06 PM »

Lifts closed yesterday and the skiing was fun, but it wasn't winter. The end of year BBQ was a raincoat affair. Then overnight it cooled down and we got a half inch of water equivalent at 23 degrees. Fun fun fun!

Now you see him:


Now you don't!


End of lift season is bitter sweet. Today was on the sweet side!

Dang it Mike!

Between you, Drew & Cathy, I'm going to have to quit my job!  The cubicles weren't nearly as fun today...

What a wonderful surprise, I was seriously under dressed for the wind and temperatures. Thanks Mike for the report, and a reboot on winter!
