Anyone Else Do This??....

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Does anyone ever look at piles of snow around the house or around town and visualize them as scaled down mountains?? Man, I always find the best lines after a fresh snow. Sometimes I see Whistler, sometimes I see Alta, and the coolest ones that I imagine are from Alaska!! I see headwalls, ridgelines, gullies and couloirs, wide open faces and even mogul fields.

Maybe I should have posted this over at TGR.....Or, I've gotta spend less time in the Rasta Hut!!

Farm out, man. Farm out.

I do that all the time with ice cream. I eat around it to form the perfect slopes. It's fun.. really!

Better than that. Looked out the front window yesterday and saw my driveway as a narrow chute. Then went out and skied it, made 6 short radius turns. Good snow. Pete's Run on Susie Mt. St Maries Idaho, 32 " in past 3 days and more coming.

Sometimes I see look out the window while driving and see the line on the highway overpasses. I've also skied the local sledding hill, and have picked out tree lines to ski on our mountain bike trails as soon as (if) the logs are covered enough.

Until you have skied the snow pile in the K-Mart parking lot when all the other snow has melted you haven't taken advantage of the full season

How many other folks ever skied down a rather long flight if stairs? Bonus points for doing it indoors

Uh-oh. Thought I was the only one who did that.

No, I just look to the east and 11,000'+ real mountains are only a couple miles away.

Why would you ski down stairs outdoors?

At California Ski Co in Berkeley, the rentals are upstairs. On slow days we would grab a set and ski the stairs. Short skis work better, lean back near the floor!

We might know someone who's done that.

Ott, That looks like a great motto!

I have found pine straw works as a substitute here in Georgia. Even works with canoes
