well whoda thunk we’d still be posting pow tr’s here in june. yesterday (6/2) was one of those rare opportunities.
1. a pow day in june
2. a really good pow day in june with everything as filled in as it has been all year
3. a great crew, none of which had hit this line before
4. a round of golf on lake tahoe after skiing dry pow til 3:00 in june
on with the pics
heading up with a bit of a late start for this time of year (7:30). the sun was already doing it’s damage. in the background would be our warm up run, chamois
dark star charges down chamois. it was faster than he expected
kfactor opts for pucker factor
and comes up…well, down
dark star had to reach a little for this one, but i still like the pic
kfactor’s board used to be much brighter and more colorful
after our warm-up run, and some discussions regarding the snowpack, we decided it was deep
so we opted to go for g-love couloir. dark star gettin’ his boot on nearing the top of our climb
we didn’t have the gear or the desire to top out
after the first turn, it was apparent i had to cover up the camera asap
dark star exits coo-lar
kfactor up to bat
and he connects with the knuckleball
sending it to deep left field
dark star rounds second
and he scores on the play
we thought about hitting the cirque from the top, but someone had already scarred it. besides, we had previously decided we wanted to score an untracked bluebird pow run down 99 steps, since it was june 2rd and all.
kfactor at the kfactory
dark star enjoying the proceeds of the bright orb
me, i mostly wandered around enjoying the views
kfactor also searching
keep doing that and you’ll bite that tongue right off mister.
so since it’s june and all, i thought some golf might be a good way to finish off a great day.
phil is 20 years my senior, but he still gets after it. hole 6 at wedgewood
tallac looks phat!
for those interested, there really is no g-love couloir. it’s just the little cleft in the middle of glove rock. i suppose it would be a couloir from the top if it went. it seems at times the area at the top by the trees connects with the middle, the middle very rarely connects at all with the bottom (and i’m guessing it would all sluff off if you were to ski the top). it must have been skied, but the conditions have to be just right.
