Tahoe’s Junuary ran late this year, and through half of February. Then things got real good real fast. Kirkwood got close to (or more than, not sure) 15 feet in the last 2 weeks of February. We’ll just look at 2/23-3/1, skipping the comp stuff which will end up in that thread.
Wednesday 2/23 at Spurkwood Backcountry Resort
why that looks like a bluebird powder day, doesn’t it
it is. it is a bluebird powder day
Ottime goes HYOOODGE while patrol gazes in awe
then, he proceeds to go even Hyuger
i started off looking for corn, but it became apparent early on that there was only a light crust in the north facing trees and it would likely get burned off in the afternoon temps. plans were changed to a little couloir i had been eyeing for a while now. previous attempt found it had been beaten down by east winds to a rain layer. now it was a thick crust on one side, and unconsolidated pow on the other. there was also plenty of not pow. in fact, had i not got off the beaten path, it would have been just as much fun. still, it’s fun to get the pucker on. gotta remember to close my vents for the down, since it almost became a bigger problem.
and the pictures
are these aspen??? they’re huge, and they’re widely scattered among other trees rather than in the thicker strands we’re accustomed to
played eighteen holes today at the carson country club. our threesome included myself, ottime, and FranklezZ. the typical cursing and swearing normally associated with the sport of fuck was replaced with hoots, hollers, and giggles, despite the fact the entire day was spent in the sand trap. on to the match.
hole 1 (tele only)
ottime with his first freeheel air
after FranklezZ tumblezZ, it looks like ottime took the first skin. however, i forced a carryover with a successful tele pow soulplow
hole 2 (another tele only hole)
this features FranklezZ’ bd ascension clipfix vs ottime’s G3s. which is the skin to win? (hint:it’s another carryover, despite that both competitors must add 2 strokes for pant leg in the boot)
a long uphill. (you guessed it another carryover)
