If that's what you wanted to do?

Haha, that still might be too intense for her. She's happy doing s turns all the way down the mountain. Perfectly fine, and who am I to tell her she's wrong. Mild blues are all she wants (she was up for blacks in her earlier college years but now she's definitely more timid).

I will still eventually hit that place and she can stay in the lodge all day.

Welcome to the forums, lots and lots of BC experience around here. Nice to see someone show up with some riding time under their belt, look forward to your posts. What do you do in the "industry"?

Jdang, It sounds like Crystal Mountain will be right up your alley. Plenty of mellow stuff for your wife, but also plenty of gnarly stuff for you. And it's all close together. Snoqulamie will also be great for your wife, but not as great for you, unless you really like park, or can leave her on the west/central/east side while you go to Alpental. Stevens is another option, but it's a bit gnarlier for your wife. No matter what though, they will all have places that you both enjoy. And if you get to Baker, just make it on a powder dump day, then maybe you can get your wife into some gnarlier stuff without the fear of major breakage.

jdang, alot of couples basically lap a chair...meet you at the bottom thing. The runs are fairly short and the hill is fairly compact and basically has 2 hills and if you stay on or do laps on one hill you will see each other fairly frequently. And if the mrs is abit leisurely you could perhaps do 3 laps for her 2 and meet at the chair with only a few minute wait for either one.

Hah, sounds like all great places!

What I usually do is do a run or two with her, make sure it's safe. No steep death cliff off the side of a green run, etc.

Then I'll ditch her and meet at the lodge for lunch. This works better if she has a few other newbs to roll with obviously. As long as there is one, good, long green/blue run she'll be good, and I'll be free to search out the gnar!
