2021/04/04 End Of Season at Kirkwood
π 2021-04-04 01:01 in Snow
Well, this was not the best season for snow, I unfortunately missed on a bit midweek storm due to another commitment, and the one I did catch was too big so most of KW was closed. Still, got to go a bit...

I wasn't happy with Vail closing early (again the earliest in the history of kirkwood, not counting covid last year), but in the end, there was not a lot of snow, so it's probably not a huge loss.
I went with Deana who had been meaning to go to Tahoe, and this made the trip more fun for sure, especially on easter sunday where she definitely wanted to be in the running for bunny spirit :)

Carson Spur was honestly not showing a lot of snow, and despite the higher temps, the early morning was on the icy side outside of groomers, so it was a chasing the right snow, day:



Deana got some rentals:

She then went mostly on chair 1 and 2:

Then, we did something I haven't done in many years: lunch :)


I went on the backside to check it out, it had started to melt, but still had snow:


the wall drop never got a lot of snow, and started getting questionable to ride again

And that was it for the weird 2020-2021 season. Not the best, but better than nothing.
