Default Kirkwood season edit.

A short season. Started late with a big break in between. But at the end of March we had a 2' storm finally, and beginning of April another foot. Here is how it looked like.

End of April, first chair on 11 and first tracks on 4. The wave. Gorgeous weather.




Last Wednesday, a day after a big storm. Semi-tracked but blue sky.




And when the pow is gone, like this Saturday high angles and turns.

Awesome vids! Impressive how well that Hovercraft floats in the deep powder.

Saturday was one of the best non-powder days I've seen in a while.

I'm sure I'll come back to these vids mid Summer when I'm jonesing.

It floats like a flying carpet. and that's after I discover how better it rides centered! I used to set the bindings way back, for a really surfy feel, but the big nose would swing left and right, making for a much less precise ride. Centered feels perfect instead. And that's a 156!

Some of the carving videos I used a really long stick. Good frame but too unbalancing when turning.

Nice.

Some of the shots look computer generated to me for some reason. Like when you are going through the trees, the trees look something from a video game or a CGI movie.

Skier's right off chair 11.. it's all true man. I agree that the way the Hovercraft floats looks unreal
