Yeah...but it was only Diamond Peak! I was pretty amazed to feel the whole mountain slide out from underneath me! It was a nice day, sunny and in the 40's, so I was just wearing a hoodie. Was pretty wet and snow-filled by the time the slide stopped!

Quail Face is fun! That's the pic on my avatar, at the 55.
