2014/04/26 Very Late End of Season Powder Day at Kirkwood with 28 Inches of Freshies
π 2014-04-26 01:01 in Snow
So for those who still believe weather isn't getting more messed up, how is a super dry and crappy season that ends with 28 inches of unexplained storm (78cm) falling at kirkwood in just 24H?

The storm didn't quite follow the forecast, it feel harder earlier and then didn't deliver friday night like it was supposed to, but by then so much had fallen that it didn't matter.
In hindsight, Johannes and I should have arrived for Friday, noon to get some of the fresh cleaning tracks action, but eh, getting there for saturday morning, wasn't that bad.

More people than I expected showed up, but given the forecast, it wasn't surprising:

Unfortunately the weather got a bit warmer than it should and much of the powder was damaged by the end of the day (some even re-froze), but still, it was deep powder and good snow for the hours it lasted

the kiddy side had been closed, so we had to ride a shuttle back to the front side

pretty narrow, and many rocks...

Due to ice, I slid down on top of these rocks, and jumped feet down and on my butt over the rock to land onthe other side. I got lucky, could have been worse...

A big thanks to Johannes for getting us there and back and Jim for having us at his condo.
