DUST ON MUSK – Kirkwood – 04/24/05
Hell no! It was a little firm in spots, but overall, the conditions were tits. A nice, mostly unfrozen, snow-pack underneath with about 4 inches of new snow. Blower in spots made it yet another non-spring like day. Of course it snowed off and on for both days. Although the very bottom â€œslushed outâ€ a little, most of the mountain was sickterâ€¦at least I thought so.
After Long Board morning, we soon changed clothes and headed to Thunder Bowl, the Spur, skied Norms, Waterfall, Oops a couple times, and then called it a day.
MUSIC: Chemical Brothers – ‘Let Forever Be’
Thunder bowl â€“ Iâ€™m the spec on the top of the picâ€¦.above â€œslash chuteâ€
Middle of Slash Chute â€“ Smally and I hit it up from the skierâ€™s right entrance. Not to straightline it, but to actually make some turns. 90 % winter snow prevailed, and I liked it.
The one in the middle…
Only if it was 5,000 ft of more vert…
Carson Spur â€“ Smally keeping it real
Greydon â€“ knee down and locked.
Dave â€“ figuring out how to link turns and manage wet slough in the â€œmankâ€
Smally â€“ Upper Cham, about to bend an edgeâ€¦â€.sorry mate, should have told you about those rocksâ€
Rolling into Lower Chamâ€¦
Smally rolling off the top of the wallâ€¦
â€¦creating a nice waterfallâ€¦
Zippy left of Ski School area off of 6â€¦
Zippy straight-runninâ€™ down Oops EPâ€¦
And at the bottomâ€¦.a buddy with a b-day party with a keg of Fat Tire and food. Canâ€™t really refuse that, now can you.
Winter is back already?
