*12/26/06 – Kirkwood and South Shore update*
WINTER STORM WARNING HAS BEEN ISSUED….
…well that’s what my mobile said in Meyers just as I left Meyers at 8:20 am.
South Lake – Hurricane force winds near the lake, but no precip as of 2:10 pm.
Music:Xmas with the Vandals – ‘My first xmas as a woman’
Kirkwood – 9:00am – windy and about a inch of new plus windblown.
Ski School – windblown bliss….felt like I had the Cornice chair all to myself this morning.
Looking down towards Chamoix…buffed out sweetness all morning. The snow kept falling and blowing around. Tracks filled in by each lap.
Skier’s left of Oops….Oops was skiing nice…really nice. Even better was the Chamois section that cliffs out to a 5 footer.
Carson Pass – 12:30 pm – Chains were required from the valley before Red Lake through Kirkwood. Snow packed roads from Kirkwood to Red Lake. Snowing but not sticking in Hope Valley.
Keys getting pretty rough – Heavenry in the background, which I heard is horrible and crowded btw.
Trust me, its freakin’ windy! Power going in and out.
