Day 81 - Hero groomers under blue bird sky. Skiing exercises included trying to imitate LeopardSkin's clean snowboard carving lines. Following LeopardSkin's short turns was exhausting.

Day 83 - Another fine day in the sun skiing and working on hand drags. Very hard pack - even icy at times. Jasey Jay was best with most sun exposure. Stayed on Eagle chair ... reports of death cookies on Lions and Sky.

Day 84 - Pleasantly surprised that crust over 20 cm of fresh was very manageable on my snowboard. Every run super fun ...

3 x Rainbow with lots of fresh to skiers right
1 x Slash
1 x Top Gun
1 x Jasey Jay + Cascade
1 x Olympic fun slashing skiers left

Many of the usual suspects included Doug, LeopardSkin, Bill, Bob, Rob, Patrick, King, Jens, Massimo ...

Day 85 - 10 cm of fresh ... over groomed was great ... over ungroomed frozen crud was terrible

3 x Jasey Jay ... best runs of the day
1 x Lower Fork ... ungroomed = worst run of the day
2 x Crazy Raven ... second best
1 x Coyote 7 ... meh with frozen crud underneath

Only stayed 1 hr because didn't have the patience for long wait times after the Lion chair broke down at 10 am ... even snowing heavily but it wasn't enough to convince me to stay

For even cheaper, you can pick up an amazing Wagyu Curry with Rice from Aburi Market on the way home at Ambleside (1350 Marine Dr) ... it's soooooooo yummy :D
