TR: Pow-Day Surprise – CB resort (22 Jan 2011)

(Last Updated On: January 23, 2011)

The forecast called for snow arriving Friday night and into Saturday. But, it only called for a few inches. Upon waking, we glanced out the window and saw what looked like a few inches of fresh on the ground. But, the pow-cam read nearly 9 inches and snow was continuing to pound down. It was a surprise pow-day. Yay 🙂

Even better- patrol had all the goods open. Phoenix/Spellbound and Third Bowl along with Headwall were all for the taking. I took the opportunity to hit up a couple of lines I haven’t skied in a few years, like Toilet Bowl. Here’s Frank charging down the upper part of the “bowl”.

The day kept getting better. The highlight -we hit the opening of Sock-It-To-Me. Though the whole ridge was open, Cesspool and Little Hour Glass were sparse. But, Sock-It-To-Me proper was as good as chocolate mousse 🙂 Moi.

Our visiting friends- Charlie & Carol, Mike & Lauren – joined us for round # 2. Pics of Charlie didn’t pan out, but here’s some of the others.

    Awesome pictures Frank. It was great to catch up with you two again and ski some super fun lines. Thanks for not letting us drop into Cesspool and showing us Sock it To Me.
