8.50am this morning at Red.
The lifts finally started turning at Red Mountain this morning. Unfortunately only the Silverlode chair was operating, but nevertheless a crowd of keeners were out and having fun. There were powder turns to be had on the few pitches steep enough to keep moving, but Silverlode is beginnner-only terrain, and I was getting cold from lack of effort, so only lasted a couple of runs.
Brigitte – Dropping into Third Slide.
Third Slide was looking picture perfect from the bottom, so looking to stay warm and find some challenge, Brigitte and I skinned up Main Run skied it. Appearing absolutely flawless in the sunshine we had plenty of quality turns, but it was pretty exciting navigating through the maze of rocky fins and snow snakes hidden just under the surface. It’s still a long way from being ready for the public.
