2024/03/27 Another Great Double Storm at Kirkwood
π 2024-03-27 01:01 in Nsnow, Snow
That was end of day #4, great way to end the season :)


One more nice storm before the likely end of season for me (due to trips in April)? Yes please!
With more than 30 inches in the forecast, drove up wednesday before the storm arrived, and rode a couple of hours to confirm that there was plenty of snow but it was kinda icy, like I expected it would be.


Got to see ski patrol load up a lot of bombs and heard lots of them the next few days early in the morning :)



After that, I just ended the day and waited for the good snow ot fall.

Thursday, a solid 9 inches, although it was pretty firm and only felt like 2 or so. It was a bluebird, so I used the day to charge my car:



nice but not very deep
nice but not very deep

Firt run on chamoix was nice, but you can see it's not super deep:


I never get tired of this view :)

I went to check out the cave skiiers left of the wall ridge, it's very filled:

I went to the backside to check it out when it opened:

nice fast run since it was pretty firm:

As usual Fawn Ridge was the best snow on the mountain:


 a bit of work get out, though :)

Friday, day 3 for me, was a ok-ish day, the new snow didn't fall until late in the day and it got a lot better then. Got to do a few runs with Maze before the storm hit hard:



Saturday, day 4 was the best day, the best for last for sure. A solid and soft 12 inches, and half bluebird:


not crowded for a saturday

First run was really good:



very very good snow

happy :)

The top of the wall ridge was hard, so I lost my edge, but once in the forest, plenty of good snow left:

Met Eric who did a much deeper Fawn Ridge run than me :)

Then it was time to head out to the back side, usual little line on 2:


fawn ridge was excellent

oops, I had to walk out on that run :)

I'll leave you with the last Fawn Ridge run, which was excellent:
