Kirkwood was loaded yesteerday!
I was in Jackson by 7:15, and the town was all white. It started snowing immediately up on 88 and It took me quite a bit to get to Kirk. Once there I hopped on Chair 6 as soon as it was open, got a fantastic run, and then got stuck on it for 30 minutes for the usual power outage. The ride was great after that, no one on that run.
Moved to the wall for 2 steep uns and then to the backside, that was still closed.
After 15 minutes they opened, letting the first 50 or so up...everybody was screaming....the whole day flew in an instant, at one point a guy asked me the time and I realized it was 2PM already...incredible...I rode until 3:30...Epic day until the end..one of those you can't stop riding even if you can't feel your back leg anymore.
I need a powder board...keeping mine afloat was a workout...
I got stuck for 30 min on chair 6 at my second run..everybody was there besides a couple of folks on 5, after I did "the wall" twice
then moved to the back side... I think that accident happened few days ago...
More than stoke was an animal-like frenzy..to try to get to the fresh before anyone else...lol...powderhounds hunting for the last patch! But yes...everybody was hollering at that first guy from the chair
