First turns


Last weekend it snowed 40 inches at Mt. Bachelor. Not only was it surreal to have deep snow in October, but to make turns for the second time ever on my bday, I was stoked!

Went out to Baker today and had a ton of fun despite being super rusty and managing to get turned around several times. A little icy in the morning but it was snowing all day. Ended up accidentally getting stuck in a little patch of ungroomed snow below a trail map sign and had a hell of a time getting out sinking past my knees for about a 10' stretch or so (I wasn't the only one to get stuck at least). Essentially no lift lines all day too.

I'll have to go back later in the season when I'm in better shape and not as rusty.

thats when you swim or paddle out...just lay down on your board like paddling a surf board ... but its really a matter of choosing your lines wisely, having enough slope and enough speed and don't biff or its swimming time.

I was trying to get a look at the trail sign cause I was super confused and didn't realize what I was getting myself into until it was too late. Oops.

Aaaaa, that's awesome! Thanks for this, made me leave the office with a wide grin (and a well meant swear on the lips) :laugh:
Hope it'll be equally good in March! Over here, winter hasn't startet yet :dry:. No snow in sight.
