At Gondi opening, SIJ took me on a magic 2 hour powder ride! Stephen was gushing " best snow of the season day". A pic from the top of Sublette chair.
The picture SIJ posted of me climbing down the rock wall was the final 15 verticle feet of my first official JH poach. As Finndog would say "tasty". Skiing a pow day with someone who knows the mountain as well as SIJ is just special. WOW! Stephen's off to ski with his family, me to the Tram.
At the Tram base, Team Chartruse (Bop and Phil, Firball in between)
At the summit
Rachel, Kawo, Bob Peters, Fireball, Spike Dog, Phil, Spike Dog's son
One run with them destroyed my legs and mojo. They all ski above my level and the visibility was marginal, so, I let them to be free of the group anchor.
Lunch with SIJ' family
Blaze circled by sisters Maris, Liberty, and Eden. Eden's a hula-hoop champion we found out on a tram ride.
I finished a short, but spectacular day doing a couple of runs with Blaze and Lolapug. Blaze has been on skis all his life at JH, and, skis like it. Nice young guy to talk to, he had some fun with us, but we turned him over to the Phil, Racel, Kawo, Fireball group for him to finish the day off with.
Lolapug gettin it done
I'm still smiling as I write this, great day.
Today, still snowing. Legs have too much lactic acid. There will be a price to be paid for another day in paradise.Edited by Living Proof - 1/23/10 at 6:19am
