Day 18 - Quickie pre-work session snowboarding with LeopardSkin. Usual suspects Jerry, Rob W, Clay. Top of Panorama was good for hero turns ... the rest was hard-pack. Got a few carving 360's before I had to take off for work.

I sessioned the sky chair last night with Remi. Lots of light soft snow in the trees was tons of fun. Looks like it snowed all night and this morning should be awesome. Have fun up there you slackers!

Day 19 - First day on skis this season. Took a few runs to find my rhythm then it was super fun. Smooth grippy corduroy perfect for hero turns under blue sky which clouded over at the end of my session. Hardly anyone there so almost had the mountain all to myself.

Dumping snow this afternoon. Lots of powder to be found all the way from top to bottom and didn’t get busier until 7:00. So much fun, the morning will be awesome for the slackers.

Day 20 - No pow for us slackers. Only a dusting over groomers but the snow was soft and grippy - perfect for hero turns. Fun riding (snowboarding) with Clay (skiing) and Doug (skiing). Usual suspects included Jerry, Rob W and Bob.
