Heluva and UL hiking above Imperial to access the Lake Chutes. I was so winded and far behind that I'm not visible. Heluvadad has lungs of carbon steel from biking, so he basically ran up and took this photo:
Sorry we missed everybody this past week, Saturday sure was a perfect 10 day in the Colorado High Country!
Thanks to all & a Big Thank You to Greg, Uncle Louie for a great time at LGC III 2007! ( U.L. were on the 2nd floor, you better get BUSY!)
Can't wait for LGC 3.5, in the mean time were going to look for that perfect line......
A number of Bears contributed towards a Home Depot gift certificate to help with a “few nails” as Uncle Louie begins his next project...new home construction for he and SugarCube. Betsy put together a sizeable LGC3 thank you card for our “leader of the pack” including within some memorable photos of those Bears.
Additionally, two “golden framing nails” were provided to UL and SC representing our Bear support of their new home as well as an opportunity for them to figuratively “hit us all in the head” now that LGC3 is over
1.Betsy and Bklyntrayc hold up just off lower chair 8 glades demonstrating the bluebird conditions and their love of the 94 inch snow base. 2.Betsy captures the LGC3 “all mountain group” at the base of chair 1 just after completing the final bump and tree spree that Over the Rainbow offered up; madmike, Bklyntrayc, SCSA, DonDenver.
Looks like I missed some good times on the final days of LGC3, not to mention the inaugural break in of Double D's new screaming green jacket!
Tahoe this weekend was weird. Saturday it snowed, but it was wet snow down low. The conditions @ Alpine Meadows were overcast, snow, and dust on death cookies. I did 5 runs through Pete's Peril's Trees and then called it quits.
Sunday was muy bueno by comparision. Hooked up with my buddies Trevor and Jack and the conditions were firm, but with small stashes of light powder. Only 2 lifts were operating, so we had to do small hikes to the good stuff, but we squeezed out 5 hours of goodness.
Anyway, glad y'all wound up the LGC3 event with smiles and good turns!
Until the next go around...
Looks like I gotta invest in some more garb to compete with Don, SCSA, and Brkln!
