TR: First day of Spring at 49

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

 

Spent a couple hours in the afternoon at 49 Degrees North after they picked up about 6 or 8 inches that morning. Like usual at our resorts in the Inland NW, I was able to ski fresh all day.

 

Sunrise basin was also completely untracked, with the chair not running during the week. The skate out was the only penalty for dropping in and often it's worthwhile.

First time I did the walk/hike up to Angel Peak. There will be a new chair servicing this area next season, so I figured I'd get one in. Probably not worth the effort for the little extra vert, but fun either way.

My brother and niece had season passes there until a couple years ago, when he moved to Vegas (Air Force.) I don't think I'll share that video with him because he'll be sad!  How fun! I skied there with him twice and had a great time.

 

Gee, I'll be at Priest Lake in July, think the ski areas will still be open with all the snow?!  biggrin.gif (J/K, of course.) I'm thinking the lake is going to be mighty cold this year.

Nice! Hard to argue with that kind of day!

 

It looks like those are Praxis BPS you are on. If so, what do you think of them? And if so, I think that means both POV videos I know of from that day posted on epic were shot by folks on Praxis skis... biggrin.gif

Love the the BPS! Such a fun ski... and surprisingly predictable and stable in most anything you throw at it.

 

They were my go-to powder ski this season -- everything from blower to breakable crust they handled with ease.
