Heavenly 4/24/08 was heavenly.
An epic day was had on the limited available runs at Heavenly today. We were on the gangala by 9:30 and found lots of pow on Comet, Orion, Big Dipper and Big Dipper Bowl. The terrain park by Tamarak Lift was well populated by some of the SLTHC and I even made it out to Milky Way run, though I dropped in at the absolute worst spot at the top of the run, bouncing through iced over moguls and butt sliding ingloriously about a third of the way. There was great pow at the bottom of the first face, and we dropped in much further rider right the next run and found some kewl pow with just a little crust in those glades.
Some of the most beautiful views from a run you will ever find are on California Run. The view of the lake and surrounding mountains is breathtaking. (Pics to follow.)
The runs remaining open are relatively short but super fun and uncrowded today.
The weather was spectacular with the most beautiful bluebird sky reflecting off of the most beautiful big blue pond. Temps in the high thirties kept the snow firm for the most part and not nearly the yellow patches we endured at Breck last weekend.
I can't wait to get my Epic Pass next year and haul Mrs. DBtv out here from the CO.
I am recharging the bat in my camera and will have pix up as soon as the light turns green..
Tomorrow will be even more epic.
