I see. However we didn't climb the cone today. We were going to, but the summit opened up. Again, however, I missed the summit trip by 5 minutes. I was with a group who was going to hit a couple more runs before heading to summit. While they did that I was going to have a couple beers with some friends at the lodge. Two minutes after I sit down my ' more adventurous' buddies had already caught the all of a sudden open lift to summit. Damn!
By this time I had just sat down and from there on out the beer took over....ok ok,,,, my legs were talking too. I didn't make the summit.
I did see some very cool avy control before they opened , at 2pm. The bombs they were setting off were sending huge piles of snow down the mnt. Controlled avy....it was beautiful.
All in all a great second day. I got first tracks from top of matin to the bottom of NW chair, then another set of awesome tracks from top of NW to the bottom again. ..... Like surfing,,,, pure pow.
My legs are butter.....and beer taste good. Green beer!
Happy st patty day!,!
