1/6/18..cold..nice snow..a lot of PASR


Recommended Posts

Hey All,


I'm back from a fun session at Blue mountain the true mountain. At 730AM it was around 2 degrees with 15-20mph winds actually warmer than expected. There were a lot of PASRs in the house including Atomic Jeff, Shadows, Enjorales, JFDan, Root, Ryan, Toast, Matt Edge, Johnny Law, Justo, the real KT, T maki, skier112, Indiggio, mbikeMike, Mrs Snowbunski and many others. 


As always the gates opened before the liftees got ok but first chair  was had. I had a very nice first run on Razors before it was closed to the race team was between hardpack and aoftpack not bad challenge was good for run number two followed by nightmare to dreamweaver which was even  better. Run number four usually would be sidewinder which was closed with five groomers grooming out the new blown snow compete with a winch cat 


Swithback was pretty good and I skied that three times total.  It  as a bit of a wind tunnel so I tucked the top half befor the two big turns. I didnt ski lazy mile because I heard it wasn't that good then back to nightmare dreamweaver and another challenge run which was still pretty nice and then we waited 2-3 minutes at the rope drop for sidewinder and high tailed it down and it was like Toasts favorite Katie perry song hot and cold.  Some good areas and some bad.  I skied another sidewinder run with matt edge behind shadows and hit the fresh manmade pow under the lift on the left side near the bottom. 


My feet ended up frozen everything else was ok and it took some effort to get boots off. I had some beers in the lot and thought about going back out with a few PASRs but my boots were solid as a rock and I got some really nice cord and empty runs today and will be back tomorrow.  The ambient temperature will be colder initially but less wind

Had a lot of fun this afternoon. First day out for my daughter this season who took this great shot for her snapchat friends. Glad we waited until this afternoon as it was 11 degrees when we arrived and the crowds weren't terrible. The 6 pack kept stopping so we rode the quad most of the day. Windy at the top but nothing crazy. All of the blow over from Razors made NMDW the ROTD. Really nice afternoon at Blue the true.

It's always interesting at 759am what's gonna happen with the gates at the 6pack. Today they all opened and the liftees were a bit flustered because ski patrol didn't give them the call yet. 


Despite the variable conditions on sidewinder it was exciting being there for the role drop and skating and tucking to be ahead of a few dozen people to have an empty run.
