Re: Cutler River Drainage to be Closed to Public Access

Slackfest probably won't happen. Let that dry understatement percolate a bit....

Given that half the season never happened, doesn't that turn it into an asterisk and blend 2019-2020 into 2020-2021 as 2019*-2021?

Re: Tracks!

The winds are playing hell with my plan, Thursday the 12th is looking good though. Only breezy and 4 days of 1-3 inches could make for fine conditions...and very likely, the need for fresh assessments along the way.

Re: Tracks!

It's been a year since I was able to let'em run and feel like I was within my comfort zone. The GOSST pitches flowed together at a nice pace. The Sherby was not as much fun, although skiing it around midday was pretty good anyway. My reasonable start netted first tracks on the GOS Ski Trail. I still...

Re: Tracks!

The first two sets were by a gent who went to just before the Fingers slide path crossing for a lap down to the dip just above the Alternate skintrack and back up for another go. I went just above the upper cach...

Re: Tracks!

Not exactly Frabjous Day in the Zone: Oh that fresh snow, oh that nice skin track under the fresh, alas that crust layer defeated my not yet hale and hearty knee. 2,400 vertical feet gained in good style but the descent was not one for the record books. Still, I did saw away a couple of line blockin...

Re: Tracks!

Adventure skiing with BobT is always a treat. Ruby and Cooper joined in the fun with doggish enthusiasm, to wit, they covered about 11 miles, maybe 12. Bob and I covered 7.4 miles. We gained almost 2600 feet of vertical but the dogs may have gained much more. Disappointed by the scant snowfall, we w...
