The moon was smiling
Skies were clear
Temps were in the teens as I gathered my gear

No need to break trail
That job was done
Getting me closer to those peaks in the sun

Powder Bowl
Image

Crystal Peak
Image

Tunes cranked up high
On their tracks I skinned
As cats drove by their operators grinned

Finally at the top
Ready to start my run
Carving 2-3 feet of powder to myself under the sun

Green Valley
Image

Doors
Image

It was deep
Alot of times I couldn't see
With all the powder and sluff flying around me

Once at the bottom
I looked back up at my tracks
To find it most taken out by sluff which was wack

Back to skinning
The top only a 1000 or so away
Then came Carl, Tera and Nate somewhere halfway

To Upper E we marched
There was no time for break
First tracks down before its too late

Nate
Image

Camera for some pics
Whose gonna wait
Not Carl but got one of Tera and a few more of Nate

Tera
Image

Nate
Image

Nate again
Image

And again
Image

Back up the frontside
It didn't take long
Cat track to cat track you couldn't go wrong

Damn this is fun
The best day of the year
But the mountains not even open though its near

The lifts were cranking
But hills void
Of the 1000 locals which can be hard to avoid

Upper E once again
A top to bottom for the last
Reflecting with a grin on an epic day that has just past

Lower Bull
Image

Other notes worth mentioning...

Sluff management. Board cut in the morning released at least a foot plus of sluff that ran 100ft or so skier/boarders right of Rex and gained momentum with the steepness of the terrain. Skiers left of Rex also had some point releases that covered some sections of the cat track. Especially around the Breakover vicinity. Sunnyside over to Iceberg was money. The snowpack on Upper E was bomber after ski/board cuts produced very little. Taking what I observed and comparing it with the telemetry was interesting this morning.

By days end patrol was bombing the areas accessed off 6. Sounded like Powder Bowl.

Really nice! Maybe a haiku next time?

I also love to poach the resorts before they unleash the masses 8)

Hey SLUT

that first pic brings back good memories of gettin loose thru a chute in the rockband my first trip to Crystal. There is some sick riding there. Too bad there is so much f***n traversing you have to do on a board at that resort.
