Who Is Still Skiing and Where? - Page 15

post #421 of 436
Thanks to all who have posted about their ski streaks. Fun to read as the new season approaches. Let's hope it's a good one for all of us.

Didn't get our pics up for September, again at St Mary's. Windy, and not great snow, but gorgeous day!

 

 

I managed a new-snow day last week up there, too ... snow was nice where the wind had put it, and crap whence the wind had taken it. I think this shows it well:

 

 

But who cares, it's ski season again!

since others are lagging on posting their Sept. turns, I made mine on the 29th, close to the wire.

Not sure where I'll be snagging Oct. turns, but I still have a few days to figure that out...

Carson Pass on October 26th:

 

Getting ready to "thread the needle" between two small boulders at the top of the run:

 

Blazing by a rock face at the bottom of the run:

 

Fun to ski the fresh.

I'm sorry but posting first skiing of the season does not qualify for inclusion in "Still skiing" thread and will be reported to the moderators. Perhaps you should start a "Skiing already" thread. ;) (Looks like it was a good day to be out doing anything up there.)

@oldgoat: i've been thinking the same thing about the Down Under folks who live in NZ and Oz as well as the SoAmers. They''ve been posting all summer, yet their winter is traditionally July - October. Me thinks those folks should only be allowed to post in the Still Skiing thread from Nov - June, while us NoAmers should only be allowed to post June - Oct.  Just a thought...

Speaking of late season skiing, have you ever skied the south facing chute on Lola off the summit ridge a few hundred yards before the summit? I suppose it normally melts out before it's practical to get there in the spring.  Looks like a great line if you could get there while it still has snow. I don't have a sled. Of course one could get there on skis mid winter if I wanted to badly enough, but I don't want to badly enough.

Is this the chute you are talking about?

I think it mostly faces east though.

Yep. Guess that answers my question.

though i just though ot another technicality: those of us who ski year round are always "still skiing", we just keep the season continuously going and mash it up with lift-served and hike-to.

Sneaked in my October turns under the wire yesterday. Prolly the most dire turns I've made during my 7-year stretch skiing every month...

Carson Pass, November 1, 2014
Another storm provided a reason to return to Carson Pass.

"Threading the needle" between two small boulders on my first run:

 

Penny and Makisha join in on the fun:

 

133 consecutive months skiing.
