January 21, 2006….falls on a weekend…..so we decided to ski some steep pow in West Shore, Fingers, Temple of Doom, Thunder Bowl, and others..
Absolutely splendid skiing…just take a seat, listen to the tunes, and scroll…..

Skier’s left is blue ice, skier’s right is about 90 cm wide….time to down-climb in ski boots:
Skis on….Cue Leroy Jenkins…"Let’s Do this"…killer pow turns and no exit except for a 20 footer to less than stellar landing between to rock walls….schweet Napolean….
