Well Brian Harder and I were on the trail to powder ski on Wimpys yesterday before 8AM. I could tell it was going to be a special day as the new snow got deeper and deeper as we climbed. The snow constancy was very light and there was like zero wind effect as well. Some clouds lingered in the valley, but the sunshine had me down to a t-shirt as soon as the pitch increased.
We enjoyed the workout…breaking trail to the top, and we each sucked wind as we did our share. That’s one of the things I like about skiing with Brian…he’s more than willing to put in his time in front…breaking trail that is. Conditions had changed a lot since I was up there last week, and it looked to me that over 2′ of snow had fallen up there in the last few days. The top foot of fresh being oh so nice.
I must say that the quality of skiing was some of the best I’ve ever had on Wimpys. We did two laps…top to bottom, for over 6000 vert. Skiing the gut first, and then the right ridgeline. Today I am attempting to ski Prospectors Mountain…should be a hoot!!!
Well, I might take my turns at the front but I usually have to beat Steve down to get around him. He never hesitates to put in the steepest of tracks, much to the frustration of some that follow.
Frustration and bewilderment. We had no idea who or what set that skin track until you two passed us on your second lap. Thanks though for, both the skin track and being our canaries in the coal mine.
Sounds like you finally got some sow, at least on Wimpy’s.Enjoy. Be Safe
Pay to play…right fellas. 😉
