Earned some WNY turns tonight

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I could'nt let about 3 ft of fresh LES go to waste so I headed out after work tonight to Holiday Valley



This is a lot of snow...


There is too much snow (and its very wet) to ski here. I made it a little ways down champagne by using somebody else's tracks Then gave up. I didn't have any trail to follow down to build some speed because I took the easy way out and hiked up a run that had been partially groomed.




back at the top of yodeler...much better




Nice to get out but I was a little disappointed that the fresh snow was no good.

Its good base building snow at least and it was pretty solid after being run over by the cat.

Snow is never too deep. It's just that your hill was too shallow. nice to get after it, though...I'm still waiting for our "base-building" storm.

That looks pretty bright. What model is that and what does it run?

It an led light out of New Zealand, their new model is even brighter than mine.

The whole setup was about $300 with a generic LI-ION battery and charger.

720 Lumens!!!!!! Holy Crap man, good find!!!!

How's the battery life? It looks as if it is mountable to the handle bars as well. Can you swap from helmet to bars easy?

GREAT FIND!

I definitely am picking one up. But I may just hold out longer because the dollar keeps getting stronger by the day.
