I love mashed potatoes on nearly flat slopes - Page 3

Your expert ski pals sound like pussies. ;-) Carving rocks will get you right or kill ya. I've been known to go switch in the lot to the chair and was informed that was unacceptable. I've got about 1 day left in me.

While I'm sure everyone likes to know the options to make skiing the strange snow easier, sometimes going out and skiing stuff that puts you out of your comfort zone while really paying attention to how you need to adjust your skiing to effect good movement patterns pays huge dividends in advancing your personal skiing.

 

Everyone has their own reasons for getting out and skiing. None of them are wrong. Working on becoming a better all around skier is just one part of the journey.

I love this.  :drool

Almost all of my friends just complain and go to the bar and drink.  It seems my possible 'expert' skier companions complain more than they actually ski, forget about making lemonade from lemon sour conditions, isn't it more elitist to say conditions suck and get off the hill?

:dunno

I need more ski buddies who love all conditions - and the fall line.


So you want to ski the Mank. It would be my pleasure to escort you around our mountain. Here is a sampling from todays adventure.

 

 

 

Free Volcanic base grind with every run.

 

 

Black Corduroy, nice!

I was calling this snow Sugar Corn Mash. It wasn't wet and slushy, but wasn't completely dry sugar either like you get in full winter. Wet sugar and corn. On the tops of moguls you could blast through it and it would spray shins and sometimes face. Made a fabulous sound too as it shot out of the way.

 

Where there were rocks and dirt on the trail mixed in we called it Shepard's Pie.

 

 

In this spot there were caramel swirls too.

Killington 3rd May. @mdf on SuperStar.

Where do those "caramel swirls" come from?

Now on to new mashed from today without laundry stains. Is this what we mean?

I assume it's the snowmaking. Maybe it's the biological additive Snowmax or the chemical additive Drift that make it yellow when used in high quantities when it's warmer out.
More likely it's the oil from the air compressors. Probably during that day/s they attempted to make snow at a temp in the high 20's.

Maybe it's an avalanche dog

I learn long ago not to eat yellow snow. I guess now I have to add caramel to that list too.
