Schuykill 1.3.10

(Last Updated On: January 6, 2010)

After a great day yesterday, Brittany and I couldn’t help but head right back to the same area. While it had been dumping at times the day before, the sun was certainly out today:

There were several other groups out today, and I got a kick out of the guy with the kayaker’s nose plugs and the avalung tube stuck halfway down his throat. If I really thought it was that sketchy, I don’t think I would ski at all. We chose to spoon out tracks from the day before rather than check out another run, mostly because we were short on time.

The snow had set up a bit overnight, and wasn’t nearly as blower as the day before. Several groups had skied the same area the day before, and a group to our skier’s left had a small slide in an open rollover area. Far more ominous was the large triggered slide on our skier’s right, which traveled perhaps 1000′. We couldn’t see where that started exactly and get a handle on why it slid while our route hadn’t. Perhaps we were just lucky, but at the same time I felt like we stayed pretty close to trees on fairly mellow terrain without the same rollovers as on the other sides. Stay safe out there.
