Well it didn't rain on Sunday at Baker, but *DAMN* it was totally socked in at times. Because I didn't know my way around and the signage is limited (=non-existent), I spent most of the day lapping chair 8 and 5 around White Salmon lodge. Fun hill. There was ~1-2" of fresh over dense packed base. Reminded me of spring snow back east; you could get a good edge in, but it was treacherous when the fog was so thick, you couldn't get any sense where the terrain was taking you. I about broke my neck 2-3 times before I gave up ~2pm.

Looking up Easy Money

I did get invited over to a grill in the lot afterward. Some friendly locals offered me a dog with the fixins. I wanted to say thanks. I loved the vibe - total old school chill. I'll be back for sure.

Now off to Stevens tomorrow.
