2005/02/21 All in a day's work
π 2005-02-21 22:34 by Merlin in Snow

I hadn't realized when getting up this morning that this was the first time I felt slightly sore, not in a bad way though (and after getting home and writing this, I can't really say I'm hurting anywhere except a little bit for my left knee, which brushed a tree from a little to close ;)
This last day was quite good too, not the epic powder day, but still a nice amount of powder and lots of spots left to run in the mountain. My only mishap for those 4 days was to hit my knee against a tree I went a bit too close to. No big deal, but a good reminder that I'm sometimes cutting it a little close, just to get more of the fluffy white stuff :)
I saw a guy do a back flip off the wave, that was pretty cool. Unfortunately, I'm missing the first couple of seconds of video (didn't get my camera out quickly enough), but this still taken off the video still looks good

Since it was snowing pretty much all day (even if only lightly sometimes), my concern was getting home, but while I was there, I might as well still do an entire day of riding, so I only left after 16:45 or so (this included finding someone to jump start my car since for some very strange reason, the battery had lost most of its juice. I'll have to look into that problem).
Anyway, I got very lucky, the temperature and sun were just right, so Carson Spur was actually open with no chain control and no snow on the road as it was melting on contact (although had I left 30 to 45mn later, that would have been a different story). I got home in about 3H05, which ain't too bad, and even averaged a respectable 24mpg (instead of my usual 12 to 14 :)

Although I do regret that I ended up going there by myself, it was a great 4 days.
