Pony Express

Pioneer Ridge opened today so I rode the Pony Express for the first time this season. I didn't ski much over there since this area needs more snow than the rest of the mountain to be skiable (this area opened in the late 90's by which time the environmental restrictions on removing trees and rocks were much stricter). But it all helps to spread the people out during the busy holiday week, so I'm not complaining.

Here's today's track. 10,970 vertical ft (season total 308,518 ft) in 2:06. It was another perfect bluebird day today but I'm looking forward to the snow that's in the forecast for the rest of the week; hopefully we'll get our first dose of Champagne Powder.
