Two mountains, One day

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
How's this for a day of skiing(boarding actually).

Started today at 0830 @ Mt Rose, got 2 hours in of some real good riding, 5-7 inches of 15 degree cold smoke [img]smile.gif[/img] but he damn sun was out and the wind died, the forecast had called for snow most of the day so I was bummed. I jumped on the phone and called Alpine Mdws, it was snowing with winds to 40 mph at the summit. At 1100 left Mt Rose and drove to Alpine. Upon my 1200 arrival the sun was shining but I didn't care it had just stopped snowing. By the time I was on the chair at 1205 it had started to snow and stayed that way through all but 20 minutes of the entire afternoon. 4-6 inches of new snow on top of the foot that had fallen overnight was far more superior to the 5-7 inches of cut up crap at Mt Rose. A great day spent at two mountains, that was pretty fun.

BTW, westbound I-80 was closed because of spin outs, it was a parking lot eastbound, however, was wide open

I've skiied two countries, but not two ski areas.
I have skied 2-3 mountains a day in different resorts in Europe, but that's normal for us, e.g. Val d'Isere and Tignes in France or Saalbach, Hinterglemm & Leogang in Austria.

I've done that type of storm following in Summit County. Copper in the morning and Breckenridge in the afternoon. Follow the powder.
