Nice one, boys. It was a good morning despite somewhat tough conditions.
We went to the backside just before noon and found some good snow in One Man Chute (Thunder saddle area) on the way back. I think this fire up abertsch and he played tour guide for us a bit.
abertsch suggested we go look at Chamoix. I’ve seen pictures of Chamoix in many a TGR TR, so I’m thinking it probably a no go with hard snow. So we pull up and abertsch think it is not good enough. But, I look at it and based on what I could see I think it might be good after the 1st turn. (Isn’t always about that 1st turn? ) So, I re-position to get better look. After a little talking about it. I started to think maybe I should not be so aggressive. (I still could not see the whole thing.) Mrs Stormday suddenly announced that she thinks it looks good. That’s it we are going. So, MrsStormday and I dropped down Chamoix on some firm but edgeable snow with a few soft piles.
In fact, the snow got better at Kirwood throughout the day. We finished up the day with a couple laps on Chair 10, some big bump on Sentinel and a beer on plaza. Not a bad day at all.
