2017/11/27 Early Season Powder Day at Kirkwood
π 2017-11-27 00:00 in Snow
Kirkwood has just opened 5 days prior and didn't have a huge base, but had enough to ski on. It's just that all the creeks were not coverd, so some places had difficult crossings.
Arturo suggested that we go for a day trip given that we had to get our epic passes for the upcoming Europe trip. The fact that they had 19" forecast didn't hurt either. Sadly, this turned into only 7" the rest being rain. Still 7" is better than nothing :)

And that was it for the day. Not my best day at kirkwood obviously, but a good enough day for early season. Tnanks to Arturo and Louis for getting us there.
