Response to Re: Sunday was lousy

Good to hear that everyone was OK. What tires were those?
You didn't miss much...

Thick and gloppy, wet and sloppy, gear all soppy 12/28/08 Hyak. Heavy overcast, light fog, and snowing wet, sloppy flakes. Temp was 29F, and winds were 5-10 MPH at the top of the Kechelus chair when we loaded up at 0845. The lifty (Steve?) said his personal goal this year was to early load all season long whenever hes scheduled for opening. Good man. Snow cover was 4 inches of new NW slurpy over a nicely consolidated base on the groomers, really heavy going off-road though. Did watch some brave soul with good knees straightline the big Dino chute with a midway hop. Looked good. First tracks down a couple of the flatter trails were amusing, but things started to set up , so we bailed before noon. Slid right onto the lift all morning long even though the main lot was full with what I guess was mostly cross-country skiers.
