Good to see all the spam got cleaned up - it is unfortunate Mike and Eric had to deal with that.
Some shots from Saturday up at AM - none of us had a camera so these are all from my phone (which, surprisingly, is the first time I have ever tried to shoot pictures with it). Worse, we accidentally had it in video mode most of the time, so these are screen stills from one second videos. Hence, took a good amount in time in Lightroom to be able to get these to a post-able form. But regardless...
I have to admit, I usually shy away from early season stuff as I fear the risk of injury with the burried stuff under the thin snowpack, but it felt really good to get up in the crisp area and get the skins moving. Really good in light of the very few days I got in skiing last year :)
Alex on the skin up to AM Summit:
Andrew working up with parts of Keyhole off in the upper left - coverage looked thin in there.
Andrew and Nick - was actually a great day and didn't get ridiculously hot until around 10 AM.
The snow up top was still soft and not too sticky, although the lower mountain by 10AM was getting pretty heavy. Andrew at the summit.
The Alex official snow depth measurement. On a serious note, I measured it "officially" at 100 cm in a slightly wind-loaded zone on the summit line.
Not bad for October 27th.
The snow in the upper bowl was fun and good coverage (even though it looks like I am going right at the only visible rock).
Andrew dropping in. FWIW - the Sherwood side was entirely bare rocks, as expected.
Nick getting some of the softer turns of the day.
A couple of Andrew in the lower mountain.
