2005/02/20 Epic day
π 2005-02-20 19:41 by Merlin in Nsnow, Snow

I don't think I can express how happy I am that I decided to crash at kirkwood. Carson Spurr was of course closed until noon-ish, so had I gone to my friend's cabin, I'd have missed a 2 foot powder day, something that you only get a couple of times a year.
In the funny fact category, I was on the very first lift up the mountain (Solitude, which I ran 3 times while others were waiting and hoping in the Corniche line, which wasn't opening because ski patrol was still blasting the mountain).
I don't know how many powder runs I did, but I was able to use all my well known hidden spots and get fresh tracks down many times off multiple lifts as they opened.
I even got 3 runs of Sunrise (chair 4, back side), even though the lift was quite flaky and only ran for about 4 runs. The trips down in wide open bowls filled with powder were just awesome.
And on top of that, after getting the first chair up, I sneaked on the very last chair up the mountain on Corniche, for a last palisades run.

People waiting for ski patrol to open a new bowl is always funny. Looks like a gold rush

Tonight, I'm staying at the kirkwood main lodge. It's way too expensive ($350/night for a studio), but they only had one, I needed a shower, and it has a great view on the reut and the wall. It's also snowing tonight (another foot), so I might as well stay here. The only sucky part is no wireless. WTF? Oh well, at least I have a modem and a 1-800 number I can call...

Oh, in case I forgot to mention that, I had a great day today :)
