I went with my regular summer skiing partner Stev and his tele buddy MJ. We hiked roughly 3 miles in on the Wood's Lake trail leading to Roundtop Lake and then veered West a tad to hit the "Kitchen Patch" above the lake. After 5 runs MJ coaxed me into his tele gear and I gaped my way through 5 more runs learning and then "The October Patch" a little further on. The backside of Kirkwood was visible to us on this latter patch.
After milking the KP for a spell and then doing several laps on the OP, we headed over to what we formerly had dubbed "The Wu-Tang Clan Patch" see this TR: http://www.epicski.com/forum/thread/85184/wu-tang-clan-august-turns) which had turned into a semi-gnarly choke chute and crowbar shaped patch. I pussed out on the chute (I approached it from below and started side-stepping into it before deciding it was just a tad outta my comfort zone). Stev and MJ cowboyed up though.
From the chute we hiked down to what had formerly been dubbed "The Method Man" patch and lapped that before calling it a day. In all we logged roughly 20 runs in on 4 different patches in a span of 9 hours. Not a bad Sunday all in all.
Probably hitting up at least 2 more days before September comes to a close and I can say that my 2008/2009 season is over (going for an even 80 days).
