I expect sat or sunday will be my last chance to go skiing again before New Years....off to AZ Christmas day.......if AZ Snowbowl gets open I might be bringin' the Pings and the Tecnicas...I can rent skis in Flagstaff if needed.
It's only Monday tho....and we got some 60 degr temps to get thru....
Glad my RI friends finally hooked up with OES.....first time I believe?
Met Mishka and one of his friends in the lodge and skied with them early in the day. Stuck mostly to the upper mountain where conditions were firm on Conifer and icy on upper 10th.
Roamed over to the Minuteman lift around 10:00 looking for IQ & Riskier. Patrol had dropped the rope on Look Mom, so there are now 3 trails off Minuteman to play on (although Look Mom lacked the edge-to-edge coverage on the other trails).
Still no joy, so back to the summit for a few runs. Then back to Challenger to finish with a few drills. Finally spotted IQ on Challenger just before I was about to quit for the day. Caught a few last runs with IQ & Riskier before calling it a day around 12:30.
Great to meet a couple of new friends and catch up with some old ones.
