This morning I went after a line I’ve been eying for some time. It’s only filled in enough to ski a few times a year. After yesterday’s dumping of snow, I decided to go for it. I loaded up the beater tele skis and boots in the car, drove to work, and had a cup of coffee while checking my work email.
After booting up and walking over, I was treated to 6″ of blower pow on top of a hay blanket base. There’s only one word to describe it: eXtreme!!! I did three total laps, and had a great time on each. It was a fantastic start to an otherwise boring day at work.
As for how I know it’s a first descent? This hill didn’t exist last winter.
