 Dang it!  Got up this morning and checked the snow report, looks like I made the wrong decision.  Enjoy the conditions.

Yep you made the wrong decision.  Skiing was pretty good. Started day over on 4 and was about 6-7 inches and suprisingly the powder was pretty good.  I avoided really steep terrain and other than lower Centennial kept that promise to myself.  Made some powder turns on low centennial that hit ice underneath and my sprained knee did not like that.Ended the day on south and it skied really good, nice powder turns thru the trees.  Although it was Sat. the initial crowd was nonexistent and got in the bar a 1145 so we could find a table and did, beer was good.

Because of my sprained knee I didn't ski anything steeper but my powder buds reported "Eureka, bootlegger, Moonshine skied good.  Didn't see anyone on Wardner probably because there was poorer visibility up there.   All in All a good day.

Well, made it up there on Sunday and the conditions were great.  About three inches new when I started at about nine thirty.  It was snowing when I got there and continued most of the day, the snow kept piling up and the visibility was also good.  Skied mostly chair three and four,  I did make it over to chair two and skied shady lady for the first time this year, not as good as some of the runs off chair four.

 

What a difference from last year, looking forward to the next two months.

Darn. Really sorry to hear that.

 

Hopefully the Silver crew has burned all its bad luck by now. 

 

Heal up fast!

That's a bummer Pete, sorry to hear that.  Sounds like you still have one operational hand, that means you can come up to the bar have a beer and convalesce.

no kidding, my ortho doc said 8 weeks on the wrist so looks like a long feb and march. not good news and he's one of my ski partners and was there when i was laying in the sled

 

my modeling career is over          

 

22 stitches and actually the wrist is a lot worse, pins and wires tommorrow.face cut all the way through to the inside of my mouth,lucky though no breaks

 

and to answer a few questions, there was 3 of us and one was an ER RN  and my friend and orthpod dr showed up too.  i still don't know how this happened as  ROBERTA RN said i was out for about 5 mins      do remember the powder was real good

 

And thankyou's go out to Robin and Roberta, my friend and dr john mcnulty.   AND a big thankyou to silver mts ski patrol for getting me out of SOUTH OF THE BORDER safely and very special thanks to one patroller who really did a special job-i wrote his name and it is in my pack.  when i can access my pack will put thanks here and on patrollers forum

 

 

anyway, everyone have a nice season

Well hell pete. I'm glad it wasn't worse. Hope you have a fast recovery.

Pete, so sorry to read this. I hope the surgery went well, no post-op "discomfort" and you'll be back in action sooner than predicted.

Seems more people than usual winding up on the DL this season. Be careful out there, all.
