The past few days have been great. 30’s and sunny. However, Sunday morning was cold. 0 at my house. -6 on the mountain. After my 8:30 morning run it was time to go for a breakfast burrito.


It is always nice to ski with a core group of skiers from a previous lesson. They know what they want, and they know I can deliver the goods.
Thursday was a good level 8 ski day. I will be posting pictures. Friday, day 3 with the babes on bumps. I will be posting the lesson overview tonight. Saturday, very good skiing 7+’s. Then today… For some it is a day of rest, for us it is a day to play.

That got me fueled up for the Sunday crew. We headed up and were greeted with a stiff breeze. We decided to head for Tiger Woods. The snow was very good for having southern exposure. That was followed by a few runs off E-chair. Inferno and the “Inferno Pitchforks”. Good snow on these north facing slopes. We decided the air carve was a move we would try to learn. We are on the right track. Look to make your turns on and off the snow. Choose the line that suits your desire.

Then we headed for Imperial. Whale’s tale and Magic Carpet were the call. We were looking for “pockets” and “ribbons”. And those we found. Why turn on the firm stuff, when there was so much windblown velvet.
The after noon was excellent. Southern Cross as a warm up, then up to Imperial again. The snow was so good. At 2:47 we decided Horseshoe was the call for two more runs.
I look forward to skiing with this group again. Lots of fun. And good at trying some of the new stuff.
to your sliding success,
Jon Law
