You must have some really slippery skis to handle that dirt.

Looks like fun. Did you go all the way up to the snow (by foot or otherwise.)

Palmer Field was being skiied, and there were clumps of snow all over the place lower down. We never got into a real snowfield, though.

Um...nevermind the question, just saw the picture post. I can't wait until the snow comes down again. That's when I want to go.

Now mix that with belonging to a ski club, and you've got me. Although, owing to a combination of knee and ankle injuries suffered within the past two years - neither of them related to skiing - I now have the perfect excuse for remaining behind in the lodge, keeping a section of the bar warmed and reserved.

Ah yes, I recognize that ride.

Makes me wish I'd taken pictures of those groups of trees from the lift last winter. What's very interesting is that the wind will dig out huge snow caves at the head of those clumps of trees. They got down to at least six feet deep--and there was still snow underneath.

However, usually I only see about 6-8 of those trees, anyway (grin).

It's a pretty nice lift, although it can get a wee bit exciting the first time you head down into that upper lift shack and see the one broken board...but when you're doing it on foot, you don't have to think about the angle you're skiing off there...
