Synopsis:

An early season arctic cold smoke storm came rolling down the West Coast of the United States and provided for some fantastic fluffy powder conditions. A couple of powder soldiers arrived early upon Kirkwood Mountain to earn their turns and burn some pre-Thanksgiving calories. The plan entailed a skin up and descent down Eagle Bowl, skin up to the top of 99 steps via Thunder Saddle and return. Conditions were downright amazing for this time of the year. Nice to meet you 2012-13 ski season!

GAME START:

Preparations were made by the kids the night before…

Traffic is light on the Bay Bridge at 4AM…

At sunrise, the visuals of the cold storm came to light…

Looking back to the West…

And then the Earth began to warm…

With the snow guns blazing, Sierra Cement begins his day…

The air is getting thin…

Once is Enough and Hospital Air…

Nice crisp view of the Kirkwood Meadows all the way to Desolation Wilderness…

The Cirque looking mean…

The first descent was down Eagle Bowl…

I thought it was pretty decent…

666 makes a Fall-like turn down to the flats…

Sierra Cement performs a ‘ski turn’…

Time to head UP Thunder Saddle…

666 loving life, maybe not MildBill’s Trekkers…

Sierra Cement continues to the Summit…
