Vail pow-surfing, 3/31/08

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
13" overnight at Vail proved to be too hard of a temptation for spindrift, cloudpeak, and myself to resist, so we met up for some turns.

Weather ranged from blue skies to complete whiteout with sideways snow. Conditions were epic throughout. Lots and lots of untracked. spindrift's Volkl Kuros and cloudpeak's Hellbents have me wanting some rockered skis now. But the Goats didn't do too badly.

cloudpeak:












spindrift:












faisasy (taken by spindrift):










We ran into montanaskier (from TGR) who graciously shared some sidecountry goodness with us:


We left around 2:30. I-70 was already closed in both directions at Vail Pass, but we were able to make it through US-24 to CO-91 before those routes were closed down by accidents as well.

NIIIICE!

So what happened to bklyn? Thought I saw that she was headed to Vail also. Maybe she hooked up with some other Maggots?

She and dookey ended up going to the Beav instead.

Awesome picture of Fiasasy with China Bowl and Dragon's Teeth in the background.

Nice shot. Those trees are fun skiing

Those pics are good stuff. I am stuck at work covering for a co-worker who called in sick and doesn't even ski. Thanks for making my 16 hour shift go a little faster.

I was at Vail yesterday and it was amazing! Another 11 inches fresh and we were able to find untracked lines all over the place. Granted, I'm only 5'2", but there were some face shots. I'll just call it what it was: skigasmic!:

That was, until, I lost a ski in Lover's Leap back at Blue Sky Basin.

The day ended way too soon!
