February 17-18th, 2008
A place near Lake Tahoe during the Dark Ages….
Snowless for about 3 weeks, temps in the mid 40′s, and blazing sunshine dominated the holiday weekend. Surely, it would be impossible to find some winter snow eh? The Plague, however, is just around the corner.
Ski Slaying Sessioners:
666, Zippy, Skimoore, Papa Skimoore, Papa Skimoore’s buddy, Slim, Mrs. Slim, Slim siblings, & Jrosen32.
666, Zippy, & Skimoore.
Music: Benga – ‘Night’ (the new album is AMAzING)
Synopsis:Summer Ski Slay Camp or February?
Gorgeous groomers to silent, sunny, sidecountry sessions…well, it is California
SUNDAY: SKIING IS FUN!
Early morning teleporting is always entertaining…
666 is happy when the sign gives ACCESS to the Sidecountry….
First turn in the area before Thunderbowl, a cliff gets in the way….Skimoore slays it:
666 finds an edge sharpener…
Skimoore’s father’s best friend’s sister’s buddy came along…but what is that white stuff he is slaying?????Can it be winter snow?
666 practicing for the slayage (sp)…
The snow wasn’t all good times….death wind ripples are beckoning in the background:
Skimoore is definitely learning how to ski for the camera….
666 follows and has one Moment (an M1)….
The snow was so beautiful looking….to bad we had to KILL it!
Back over to the Spur’….the snow has definitely changed in a weeks time in the sun….
Skimoore slaying the upper Spur dragon….
I think the older generation needs some slaying representation as well….
666 finds a nice spot to make a killing….
Skimoore should change his name to Slaymoore….
We came across this guy while waiting for the shuttle…and sadly, we lost Skimoore. RIP.
Zippy took Skimoore’s place…and the slaying returns in Eagle Bowl:
After slaying a dragon in the trees above, he straightlined out in Victory!
Slim attempts to leap over Panzer’s Cave….he didn’t survive.
The Ghost of Skimoore past, makes one last run…
Dragons hate ski ballet….Zippy begins the taunt:
666 models next to a dragon-crushing machine while it napped in the afternoon sun…
Zippy loves the funnel area…but who doesn’t?
Oblivious to the fact that he was skiing over dragon eggs, Jrosen32 gets STEEP!
And then slays the EXTREME!
Zippy is forced over to Sister’s Chute to gain access to the Dragon’s Den…
He came too close, and this thing flew out:
Jrosen32 has mad skills and turned the meat into a tasty treat….
But tomorrow is another day…..
MONDAY: A Holiday for Slaying
Oh yeah! Pre-9AM groomed goodness….
Especially good when testing some Moment protos (09′ Ruby)
Jrosen32 searches for dragons off the Wall….
Known to have dragons, Zippy kills a line in Oops…
The Dragon lookout…
Under Norm’s Nose, Dragons are a reality of life….
Jrosen32 tamed the dragon that Zippy skied over…
On a side note…Walgreens is like a dragon. They try to trick you into thinking ChapAid is actually Chapstick, by emulating the design.
Normally a place of solitude, Fawn Ridge displayed some dragon prints…
Jrosen32 stopped to listen to the loud roar coming from the Diagonal chute in West Shore sidecountry…
He heads his way over to the area making the noises….
He is certain its coming from the chute on skier’s right…
Zippy arrives for backup…
666 brings the magical potion…
The Lair is down there…(best pic of the weekend in my opinion)
THERE HE IS!
666 must save them…
He must bring down that dragon….
The Dragon’s flaming breath was starting to split the snow inside the chute…
Zippy survived and found some winter pow….
Now he’s showing off…by leaping over a Dragon’s Lair. Typical.
Jrosen32 carves above the lair…
666′s point of view…I think I take better photos
666 finds some ice to leap over…
Of course Zippy decides to slay a better line….
Meanwhile, back in the safety of the ‘resort’, Jrosen32 gets funky…
On the drive home, I saw something….what is that thing eating? Could it be the large Red Horse Panda?
Raddest drawbridge ever!
I even passed New Zealand on the return….
Urban jungle transport skyway…
