from "RobRox"

From the same day as the Ramond Cataract avvy: My little test pit in GOS revealed that slalomming around the larger patches of windslab and sking the glazed sugar of the sun warmed bed surface was the way to go. (The thin wind slabs, 1-8 inches, could easily fracture and were not well bonded to the ...

impossibly nice

Impossibly nice tour this evening. It was light (kind of) until 8pm! https://photos.smugmug.com/Winter-18-19/Apr-10-PNP/i-PhWTGWS/0/8fe38dfc/L/IMG_2158-L.jpg https://photos.smugmug.com/Winter-18-19/Apr-10-PNP/i-gM3LwMX/0/640ed4c1/M/IMG_2161-M.jpg https://photos.smugmug.com/Winter-18-19/Apr-10-PNP/i-...

more slash

Booted up half a mile to continuous snow. Or so I thought. More logging slash that will eventually have to be cleaned up. https://photos.smugmug.com/Winter-18-19/Apr-2-PWP/i-Lqqg4q8/0/9aeb42ca/XL/IMG_2108-XL.jpg Plenty of firmed-up corn beyond that. Managed to have a little fun going too fast and th...

omg

That's some fine tight trail style, Dirk. Looks like you got the powder too. Less joy in the wind stiffened stuff. As you know, the first mile only brings you to the teeth of that climb. Fought grumpy solo trail breaker syndrome to the saddle before getting inspired by the setting and punching it to...

from "Dirk"

Great to hear from freedan and telehubby, nice to have some additional comment and skiing photos! Bob, I was planning on heading up to where you were Saturday, but my ski partner talked me out of it. (If I had known you put in a skin track, that might have made the difference.) Anyway, we went up to...

magic

Package price noted, freedan. Tempting. Especially because if I bought it I'd have to use it! telehubby, good to hear the snow is healing you. Most definitely a gift. Hope you're at or close to 100%. Congrats on the imminent MOU. Just looked at sat pics of that forest and wowee, it is super crossed ...

from "telehubby"

Welcome back Freedan! I've been missing your deep posts from Tug Hill. Nice BC set up too. I've been working my way back from the plague and I couldn't pass up yesterday's gift from Ullr. Family ski day at Cannon for the morning. Word was 16"-19" at Cannon. Both sons ended up ditching us for friends...
