Intro:
Without getting too mushy and sentimental….my son and I hooked up with gimpy and joesnow (and two of their children) for a few hours of late season patch skiing on July 2nd. I met both gimpy and joesnow through the internet looking for bc skiing partners around 4 years ago and over that time we've become great friends. We all have kids too so we share that in common as well. One of the things we all love to do with our kids is take them into the mountains so when the opportunity came up I was all over it. Here are some pics from our day. :)

On the dirt road to the patch.

The approach to the snowline was brutal!
Image

gimpy and hunter get ready.
Image

And off they go.
Image

With buddy, joesnow, lissie, and skyler just a little ahead.
Image

lissie takes a breather.

gimpy and hunter, joesnow and skyler

Snack time
Image

Lissie doesn't waste any time to have fun and does the honors.
Image

Image

gimpy and hunter are next (check out the smile on hunter's face!) :mrgreen:
Image

Image

sky gets ready
Image

and gets some as well.
Image

Image

joesnow decides to try the rail slide, check out that steeze! :D
Image

gimpy runs up for a quick solo run.
Image

Image

Image

buddy takes his own line.
Image

flowers
Image

lissie and joe back for another.
Image

lissie shows her solid form.
Image

Image

skyler is next (and finally trusts his toe side edge :))
Image

Image

Some other folks were there doing some jibbing too, after a few tries this guy slid the whole rail.
Image


bcrider tries the green rail and swallows his pride with a fashion no-no (shorts).
Image

Funny story behind that….I've never cared for skiing in shorts for a few reasons. First: it's a fashion no-no for snowboarders, second: pants these days are superlight and have vents, third: getting snow down your boots and funny sunburns sucks, and forth: it just looks dorky. So as irony would have it….guess who forgot their ski pants and had to ski in shorts. Too funny. :)

Looking back at the patch.

Two generations of bc skiers. 8)
Image

Image

mmmmmmmm…I had the Stardust sushi combo for lunch.
Image

It was a great time and I know the kids will remember it! Thanks for the invite guys!!!

After saying our goodbyes, sky and I headed home down the 88 (and a now opened Mormon Immigrant Trail).

We stopped by Caples Lake to check out the sights. “Just say No to crack sonâ€Â

Gotta laugh about the shorts thing. I went up to Park Butte on Sunday (solid board) for some turns, got sun baked, and those pesky 12 inch leg sunburns below the shorts and above the socks. Mmmm.... creamed corn!

He won't do it, not willing to sacrafice splitboard turns. Plus, he thinks bailing every weekend year round is a bit much. Understandably so. If he only knew how killer the trails are ~45 minutes from his house though.

Jonsin for mtb turns. Gonna hit up Pinecrest Peak (Sonora Pass) on Sunday.
