Alpine Meadows 12/29/06

Day skiing during ski holiday:11th

Weather: cold morning. warmed up fast. Sunny.

Snow: 2nd day after powder day. Heavy winds the day before. Snow was nice and soft in areas protected from wind and sun.

babysitter: Yes

Day before: Alpine had Summit chair close b/c of high wind. It was very crowed with huge lift lines.

After the previous day we were ready to get some skiing in.

Down Northwood we go with the early morning light shining on the Donner Summit area.

Early morning at Alpine and the selected tools for the day.

After a warmup groomer and a run through the D's, we head over to Alpine Bowl Chair.

View from ABC

Fortunately, there was plenty of good snow in the Palisades. Plus some good lines...

A friend finds a good one.

Accelerating out into the bottom.

Mrs StormDay

We also found some good snow in the Deer Park area (it is not named on the trailmap)

Mrs StormDay took the camera and got this one of me.

StormDay find a nice line through the little trees

After lunch and her morning lesson, we took Little Miss StormDay #1 out.

She was stoked to be skiing Hot Wheels with mom and dad.

I was little busy on Hot Wheels watching other skiers to pull the camera out. Too bad, the Alpine kids' camp has made great progress with her.

There was some protesting about going into the lodge.

It was one of the better days of skiing during the trip. (Wed 12/27 powder day was better.)

We'll be back at Alpine tomorrow (12/30). Little Miss StormDay #1 is suppose to do Hot Wheels in her lesson tomorrow (big event). Plus, I want to check out the new Stormrider XL in the soft cut up powder (and it is starting to bump up in the Palisades).
