November 29, 2006 Snoqualmie Summit
« on: 11/29/06, 11:44 AM »

Kept the streak alive with 1600' this morning at the Pass, solo dawn patrol.  17 degrees with an easterly breeze was a shock after the past week of 85-90 degree temps in Buenos Aires, but the snow was superb, likely as good as any I will see this season.  Sorry to miss this past weekend, it sounded great too.  Flying into Seattle yesterday, it appears that the Cascades have a solid base now, let the snows begin.

We were up there accross from you observing the weather and such. Must have just missed each other or something. Get in touch if you feel like riding. It would have been more like an early morning keg stand with you making turns with us.

And Base? Well under all of that POWDER there is in fact a base.  Grin

The snow gods were indeed looking down upon us this morning. Nothing like a sunrise followed by 2000 ft of NW pow.

Thanks Alisa (and thank you for letting me know) It's amazing how quickly you forget about the 3:45 AM wake-up call when you see scenes like this.  The picture may actually be available as a some sort of thank you card (for the holidays) in the near future.
