I still had one more day to go to Kirkwood before I broke even on my pass, but let's face it, there weren't too many powder days this year, so when we got a "maybe powder day" in April, it was potentially the last one for this season, so we took the risk. We drove on Sunday afternoon, and stayed overnight, hoping for gobs of snow at night. Snow did fall, but just not long enough.
Long story short, it was very nice super dry powder with cold temps, but it just wasn't enough. Maybe 4-5 inches in the best spots, but that really wasn't enough to cover the ice sheets under it.|
There were spots that were nice if you rode flat on them, but as soon as you rode with an edge, it got to the ice, and it wasn't that fantastic.
Still, it was reasonably fun, and better than the other days where you had ice and slush. But boy, I don't remember seeing so little snow around kirkwood (even if kirkwood itself had godo coverage on the trails still).
I don't think I ever saw that river, or forgot about it
Very coool, a remote controlled snowboarding kid :)
Jennifer, her first day since her ankle sugery last year, did very well. Much better than both of us expected :)
