Great to ride with the successful BBI19 legend on the padded seats.  Should have read this page a bit more carefully before taking kids down E shaft as it was missing some sections midway down which made for sporty descents for all.  Nobody lost a leg so it was deemed a success.  Fun day.

phace book probably has the long version prepared for mass consumption so i’ll just stick to the mediocre report of the day. thanks to Etta’s girl handler and apparently a superb route finder with the flattest high T i can remember. shout out to bonespurs for not starting a war this past week. sure helped to have world peace and a winning BBI while we’re in this state of emergency. didn’t notice any groomers did see the shark fins on l’International.
tried to do my share and grind down those obstacles.

Mountain skied great on Sunday.  Was shocked to find, two days after a storm and a busy Saturday, that things like Powder Bowl/Rollen/Gunmount delivered untracked turns until I decided to head out Nash.  From there it was playing skiers right under the Clever into the trees, then helpings of Sunshine and Hummox, with deep, soft untracked lines mixed in until closing bell.  What a fun mountain you guys have!

tower 9-13 were just about unbearable till @10:30
spun a few but the headwind screamed, go to Sessel.
once el sol rose above shot8 it was more manageable
ski school kids still dominate but even they were chill
Nash and it’s environs were visually stunning & chalky

The whiteroom has been particularly lonely this week
Ride on, ride off, ride on, ride off again
One more weekend of ski skool and then the hill becomes locals only again
Last call for night laps at Summit North this evening

Demoing skis at Spreefest was fun

So I finished my day skiing at East

^ beautiful^ and just like the day, appropriately done!
was fun today but the goals had to be prioritized timely
we are not the southern resort but i’d pay to park here
close enough to 2 million but still a million miles away?
A monumental day for my lilC loading the Padded Seats! 

today l’Internationale has a new girl skiing the right side

Reversed roles w/ flowing & co. and made my way to the padded seats to see what leftovers remained. After an exploratory mission out back I settled for hot laps on the lower mtn during the last ski skool lunch break of the season then linked up w/ some like-minded individuals and pushed further out the gate. Ended the day with a long lap to the bottom via pineapple and still had plenty of time to catch the sunset from my living room window out East.
