Big Grins

Stewart – Face-shots aplenty.

Thursday was memorable day of skiing at Red. By morning there’d been 41cm of new snow in the past 24 hours, and it was snowing and blowing hard all day. Motherlode was only loading every second chair due to icing, slowing the pace a little, but I still skied first chair to last, every line deep and untracked. It wasn’t the easiest of skiing, with poor visibility, unexpected wind-lips, hair-trigger slabs releasing inbounds, and upside down snow (heavier on top, lighter underneath) to contend with, but a perfect day to play with my new DPS Lotus 138s.

Elise.

This morning I got to ski with Elise on her first day of the season, and first day (post surgery) of powder skiing in over a year and a half. Fortunately the snow conditions off the Red Chair (which opened for the first time this season) were allot more predictable than the day before, and so it was all smiles in the untracked expanses.
