Maybe not bottomless but it doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun. 10th biggest storm of the season!
Bulletin: NW and the Flying Jenny just went on Windhold… yep, Jenny’s were flying alright. Check their website before coming up. Winds are on the upswing.
Sure, you can say it was only 3″ but hey, sometimes 3″ makes all the difference in the world…. riiiiiight?
Wind was howling and temps were cold with an ambient temp of 24 up top and wind chill in the minus 20’s at times, but man it sure felt good to actually get some snow and have some wind and feel like the old Mt. Blows we all know and love.
By 9:00 AM the Slide Dogs had only just broken double digits on skiers loading, so you might say you had the place all to yourself. Were there icy plates and dust on crus? Oh yeah, you betcha, but if you found the lee on most slopes, you also found where it had piled up ankle deep or more. Chasing the swirling snonadoes down Bonanza and Silver is always a favorite pastime and the Rose side also skied fantastic as long as you found those lee drifts. Waterfall skiers left was particularly good and believe it not, if you skied it just right, you might find a face shot! 2″ to 3″ is not much to get excited about… yeah, well, its the winter of 2014/15, so we get pretty excited if the surface is just lily virgin white after the sticks, rocks and dirt we’ve been skiing for quite awhile.
Off-piste… dust on crust unless you could find some pockets. Regardless, its white, baby so come on up!
