some music, because this winter really has been dream like.
Part one appeasing Ullr
Sunday night we gather in the Notch under the full moon to appease ullr for more snow and cold temps.
Bonfires are a perfect way to test your vertical leap, the blob is me.
a guy couldnt ask for better friends or ski buddies than these.
Part 2 - skiing Ullr's bounty
Ullr was happy with our fire and dumped 6-10 inches of light dry fluffy snow for us play on monday night, tuesday's last run into the Notch was awesome.
Tourist shot in the steux's backcountry....or is it "the other side's'"Sidecounty?
the shot above taken by the wonderful SJ, who smiles for powder skiing.
Sarah has been learning the way of the tree jedi this year and is starting to charge the woods!
Liz crushing the powder on some crushes
you can take the racer of out the of the race course but she will continue to pretend the trees are SL gates.
Erik is to quick and I only get a passing shot.
one thing about skiing the notch is you have to get back to your cars some how, easy skate out though.
Part 3 - the fast way to the otherside
thursday me and Erik wanted to ski some more powder with anything on the exposures we use to ski sun baked to into a manky horrid crust, we decided to go find some lifts that face north.
The fast way to the otherside starts with riding sensation quad
......to bad the bluebird didnt last for long.
you then hike to go down though the rabbit hole
...the rabbit hole.
the skiiing was not as good as part 2 but it was pretty.
the other side had these strange lifts that only held 2 people, and they went really slow. Note the other side steepness though.
we found lots of untracked powder in a area know for sucking up entire solar systems.
Erik Flyinglow to avoid the Dark Hole's grasp.
The Bushwacker and this poster lived up to themselves today
The othersides patroler "just to let you know there is an ice fall 10 feet to your left "
