Powder Days

Tracy – Ledges
For each of the four days after Xmas we’ve had enough fresh snow overnight to fill in the tracks from the day the before, making for endless great skiing on the hill. Apparently Dec 28th was the busiest day on record, but other than longer waits in line, it didn’t seem to matter on the runs. Perfect conditions for showing friends the best of what Red has to offer.

Field of Dreams, from Roberts
Finally it stopped snowing, and so in cold clearing conditions this morning I checked out the Field of Dreams and Mt Roberts, and it doesn’t seem like there’s a bad turn to be had out there at the moment.

    Did you guy dig a pit out there that day? We skied it yesterday a concerning layer at 1.04 m down .

    • Sam,

      I’m well aware of the issues in the local snowpack, and was skiing within sight when the class 2 was triggered on Plewman on Jan 1st. I try to make informed decisions, but what might seem reasonable to me, may not to you.
