We had a two hour blizzard last night, just as we were driving to the airport to pick up my wife's youngest sister, Aline. It made the driving hard, but it was worth it because today we had six inches of fresh snow. Fortunately the snow was wet enough to stick to the hard pack underneath, so we avoided the dreaded dust on crust.
I racked up 4,000 vertical ft in 38 minutes on the Christie Express while waiting for Aline to get her snowboard and lift ticket organised. Fresh tracks down both sides of Voodoo was a great start to the morning.
Once Aline joined me we managed another 16,884 vertical ft (for a total of 20,884 vertical ft for those who are mathematically challenged). We had some great runs in the trees in Wally World, plus a couple of super runs in the trees to skier's right of 2 O'clock and 1 O'clock, skier's left of lower High Noon, skier's right of upper Concentration and skier's right of middle Vagabond. Basically in the trees all over the place!
