Day 22 - Hero groomers for snowboarding this morning. Poached Rainbow for my first run just before the junior ski team roped it off. Sweet run down untracked corduroy. Humpty Dumpty and Jasey Jay were equally sweet.

Day 23 - Great groomers for snowboarding with LeopardSkin under sunny sky from 8:40 to 10:00. Then we demoed 2020 Nidecker Smoke and Mosquito snowboards - WOW! Great for carving and pow

Day 27 - Lions chair opened first with hard pack and crappy grooming. After 2 wasted runs Eagle was open and treated to hero groomer conditions. Favorites were Jasey Jay and Coyote 7. Only usual suspect was Bob. Left at 10am to avoid the Black Friday line ups.

It thought Daylight Saving Time would curb the crowds - it didn't

Yesterday afternoon the snow was still good on Eagle Chair, especially on the runs right under the chair.
The sunset from Sky Chair was pretty awesome too!

Day 28 - First POW day of the season (not mini-POW). Due to issues with the Raven chairlift only got 2 runs (both on Crazy Raven + Coyote 7) in 1 hour before heading back to work ... but it was well worth the wait.

Excellent turn out on a sunny day ... LeopardSkin, Jerry, Clay, Doug, Rob, Bob, Brian, Ewart and Ma**imo
