The Minterbrook tour - Port Orchard
« on: 02/10/19, 01:17 PM »

A half mile of winter wonderland up local trails leads to a large expanse of 16 - 20 degree slopes a full football field long. Small round rock and grass covered  this a few days ago but our 10+ inches of snow made  for good skiing. Followed Coyote tracks right up to the perimeter road and a quarter mile further to the goods. Took 6 runs but with more snow to come and a skin track from my yard, far from done. Hella fun!

3 Days, 4 tours, 14 runs until it went bad with the warming / heavy wet snow Monday. Hope a few pic's attach but it snowed almost the entire time I was out so very flat light....mostly.
