When it's absolutely too cold

Day 63 - Expecting a cloudy hard pack morning ... instead scored a sunny morning on hero groomers on the Fork and Lower Panorama - never snowboarded so fast laying down trenches. After the first 3 runs the groomers broke up into manageable soft cookies so I started working on the Jasey Jay bumps. I was fortunate enough to get free private lessons from Boris for riding the bumps as well as tuning my heelside carving ... super productive day.

Ended the morning on the super secret Olympic run which was no bueno crust.

Day 64 - Similar to yesterday but the Jasey Jay bumps were groomed over. Hero conditions from Jasey Jay to Lower Panorama. Hutch bumps were fun and soft from lots of sun exposure. Other areas were mix of hard and soft depending on shade or sun.

As expected, Chocolate Bunny Bluebird Sunday morning was uncrowded, just like it has been for the past three weeks. At the most 3 min queue. At noon, lot 3A was 1/3 full, leaving lot 3B undefiled.

Day 65 - Fun in the sun with Dmitry and LeopardSkin. Spring conditions. Favorite run was the mini-bumps on Jasey Jay.

Day 66 - Very firm (almost but not icy). Probably due to overnight rain. Lucky my snowboard edges are in excellent condition. On the bright side, the grooming was excellent ... and no bears today :shock:

Day 68 - First day on skis this season. Hero groomers on Eagle. Called it quits at 10:30 when it became sugar.
