Hey all, Good skiing with you Sunday. Mike, sorry I missed you.
I had a great day at Copper on Monday skiing solo. I went over to Timberline and there was about 4 or 5 inches of fresh. I followed a guy through a powder field and into the trees knowing I could shoot out onto Moz when the trees got tight.
I did just that and was delighted to find out I had fresh on top of groomed and no one was skiing it. I took the same route: powder field into trees onto Moz for 5 or 6 runs before someone on the lift explained about "noon groomers." The slope was closed!! (This gives a new meaning to Nooner). Anyway I did a very good job preserving the powder by skiing next to my previous lines, for a few more runs and then headed up the little chair to the ridge and did the cornice KLK showed us last spring with John Price from Breck, who I rode the chair with. Don, I even did some powdery bumps, the only kind I like any more, though my back muscles did protest that I should have stretched them first.
So sorry none of you were still around too share the powder with. Maybe at LGC3. BTW, I saw Bong with his crew from England as I was heading to the lift. He saw me first and called out that my type wasn't allowed at Copper!
