in Nsnow, Snow
After several not so great years, resorts opened early this year, and by early December, we got a good 4 day dump which added 3ft, so I made sure to be there for that.
Drove up early on a friday morning and the snow line was quite low but thankfully the road was clear until higher altitudes, so the drive was pretty quick, except for requiring a 10mn charging stop for safety (temps + headlights + snow rolling resistance made it unsafe to drive in one shot without stopping):
Carson Spur looked good
It was early season, but when going in the right places. Friday was a bluebird with 19"
Big downside was that kirkwood only has 2 chargers left
Chamoix was still very new
Drain was still low too
Day 2 had more freshies:
Palisades was kind of closed
but looked very nice :)
Later in the day, I found Johannes:
Despite the great snow, coverage was still limited, and I ended up getting a core shot somewhere during that day:
terrain towards the wall never opened all 4 days, neither did the wall
Dau3, Sunday, got more fresh snow, kirkwood only opened 6 around 9:30, but I guess it wasn't too late:
thankfully I had Ptext to fix it :)
a bit of a wait
got cold to wait like this
people were eager :)
when I finally got up, it was very good :)
Day4, Monday, we ended up only getting 1" overnight and 5" in 24h (mostly the previous day), but things were still great. Unfortunately not a lot of terrain opened and the Wall never opened.
the guys who waited 2H for first chair didn't get a lot
coverage wasn't perfect everywhere, but still very good for early december
Around 14:00, I had had enough fun and given the limited terrain opened, I called it a day and drove home, tired and happy :)
