MA request, spring skiing version

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

 

Friday the 13th, Copper Mountain, CO, 2nd fairway. 

 

(oh, and it's not me. I think I got her permission, though.)

A tiny bit abrupt with the weight transfer, but considering the conditions that's world-class skiing.

 

She's a level 12.

 

Well done!

I'd have used a 5 iron.....:)

 

that snow requires a narrow waisted tool....really narrow waist....

Dont laugh...in Australia, that is actually how it is...and people actually show up....and pay full price for a lift ticket!  No kidding.  (Ok maybe its not quiet that bad, but it is bad enough that proper etiquette is to stand on the grass when not skiing, so the those who are have enough room on the snow to ski past.

That may be SkiDude but around here this is not normal, not even close.  Those condos in the background are normally ski-in except for very early in the season.  And there were numerous people on hill who had paid full price to be there.  But we had fun in spite of the conditions.

That is the best video I have seen this season!  Love it!icon14.gif

Glad I'm able to entertain all of you! It was a fun day on some very crappy snow!

That video is very fitting for the season we've had in CO.  Of course now we're getting some snow this weekend.

 

This video from Vail tells even more of the story:

Have you ever actually been angry and/or depressed to see snow? Last night I was just ... urgh. It's like the stages of grief.

 

But I've had a lot of fun skiing over the past couple of weeks, actually -- if I weren't laughing, I'd be crying, so I'm doing my best to keep laughing. :-)

Sigh ... all the snow reports in my inbox this morning ... finally ...  on closing day for most places. April is the cruelest month ...

Seven inches on my fencepost gauge this morning. The resort reports eight. Breck will still be open a couple more weekends, you know.

Was driving in the slushee last night coming back from DIA - what a mess. 6" reported at WP and more off and on over next two days. Fully operational for another week, and bases on C-lot cam looks like quite a few people went up today to catch Jane's closing in the fresh.

Mon or Tue still look like good bets biggrin.gif

That is *my* favorite video from this season!  Great stuff!  icon14.gif

 

BTW, what kind of wax is best for those "mixed" conditions?

Have a nice glass of lemonade and break out the skins!  ;-)

Loveland actually skied pretty well this morning.  It was only a 5" call, but we found up to 12" based on exposure and wind deposits.  A-Basin called 8" and it will be snowing all day so tomorrow should be pretty good.  We need a couple more of these and the M-day festivities at A-Basin will be in much better shape.

 

BTW - I brought out the fat skis to try to stay above the ice and rocks below.  That tactic worked well for the most part.  All my "secret" tree lines were untouched - good times.
