TR: Alpine Meadows 1/23/10 - Went for scraps got fresh.

post #1 of 10

Location:Alpine Meadows,CA

Expectations: Low we missed the powder day. Only expect soft snow scraps.

Plenty surprised by the light to moderate snow all day with light to moderate winds.

Skiers: StormDay, MrsStormDay, Abertsch, non Mag friend Mike (snowbroader), Little Miss StormDay #1, and Little Miss StormDay #2.

photog: Abertsch and StormDay

It was snowing in the parking lot when we drove in. Estelle, Beaver and High T closed - Plan for the day was going have to change  (well maybe not  )

Dropped the kids off to team and headed to areas we hoped to find soft snow in.

Quick warmup lap

StormDay checks out the conditions by some trees:


MrsStormday finds some good snow:



After that we headed out a little farther looking for more good snow.



StormDay found a nice pitch


that led to


the whiteroom:

Abertsch looking for the whiteroom.


It is hard when you are taller than the trees:


Mike found some sprayable snow:


Where next


Next we decided to invest a little more time into finding more fresh:

MrsStormDay


The group's mood was very good at this point.


(Kid stoke warning)

After lunch it was time to hit the gnar of weasel with LMSD #2:


Following dad. Stormday is trying the new 4 pole technique.


It was boot deep:


Of course post weasel gnar we had to do the terrain park:


StormDay tests the Lhasa Pows in the park:


Next LMSD#1 dragged us down Sympathy Face:


StormDay found something nice:

Sisters skiing together



StormDay had to catchup


Off to home
