Synopsis: Classic Sierra Spring Skiing

Rallied grommers from 8:50 am to around 10 am. Met up with Slim, and hiked over to Estelle Bowl, which then closed. Headed over to High Traverse, and hiked into the OB, which then closed. Had some $2 Beers at the Ice Bar, then to find some winter snow hidden in the Sherwood Cliff gnar. Thereafter, the rest of the day was spent lapping Scott Chair in all its Springtime glory.

Shugs flew up to take some spy cell-phone shots prior to our arrival…

This may be Lake Tahoe…

Holmes’ Wood…

Bare Valley…

That deep valley south of Kookwood…

Back on land…AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Surely, they wouldn’t find us in the backside OB eh?

At 11:15am its pretty mushy…..

Still damn fun though…

Ice Bar break…beers n dogz, cheap as chips.

Slim on his second twelve pack….

666, uh, getting his protein…

Over to Scott’s hidden chute. Here, I bet Slim $1 that I’d find winter snow even in these temps…

I won.

Then Slim found out for himself…

My blind date, Ian, shreds the upper Scott OB on some race-stock GS boards…

Its no Chamonix, but falling wouldn’t be ideal…

Ian…skiin’ the same line from another view…that’s right…2 CAMERAS!@#^%$W^&!

Fun line, fun times…

666 is up…he hates having fun.

That’s why he skied the roll-over…heh

Scott Chair rulez…lots of terrain to hide from gunfire.

Slim drops into the upper OB…

666 into the same line…

I know…seriously…WE HAD TWO CAMERAS!!!!

Evidence of an utter massive cliff drop…

Slim was sticking everything on this day…I’m so proud.

So FUN!!!!!

No, no, no Thank You!

Had to swing by Squaw to pick up some new Moment Tahoes from their SkiEO, so I took a rare photo of Squaw’s infamous Bailey’s Beach terrain….

That’s it, can’t believe we survived such a sweet day!
