Red Opening Day Preview


Elise – Kootenay Cabin.

It can be a long road back from injury. Elise is still working to regain full function after leg re-alignment surgery just over a year ago. We wandered up into Squaw Basin this morning, hoping for some soft smooth turns, but since it rained to the top of the mountain on Tuesday, the couple of inches of variable light fluff on top wasn’t yet enough to repair the damage (breakable crust in the open, crunchy under the trees, and scratchy on the groomers). It’s still snowing heavily so I’m trying to remain optimistic about conditions for tomorrow, but regardless the top two thirds of the mountain is filled-in like it’s mid-winter with a layer of concrete, and it’s only going to get better.
