Weekend Powder Stoke (21 & 22 Jan 2012)

(Last Updated On: January 22, 2012)

The town was buzzing on Friday, knowing that the first significant snowfall for months was quickly approaching. NOAA forecasted the storm would hit at 11 am on Saturday morning. Flakes began to fall from the sky at 10:30 that morning, and we were elated. We let the snow accumulate while we worked on a few projects in our apartment. But, when we looked glanced out the window at 11:30, we realized it had already snowed a couple of inches. It was time to grab the skis and go!

It dumped all afternoon, yet the lines were like this.

The snow continued to fall all day long. When I took a quick break, I came out and my skis had been quickly buried.

The skiing got better and better throughout the day. And during our last two runs, we decided to grab a few quick shots.

Like children on Christmas Eve, we went to sleep while dreams of pow turns and face shots danced in our heads. And we awoke to this.

9.5 inches new and over 15 inches storm total. Ullr, the God of Skiing, finally delivered 😉

Lift lines were considerably higher, but it didn’t deter the stoke level as we rode the Silver Queen for our first run of the day.

The skiing in the morning was far too good to be wasting time on the camera. We took time to enjoy it. Besides, we had to outski a few thousand of our other best ski buddies 😉 But, near the end of the day, there were still a few powder stashes to be had. And I finally whipped out the camera for a few pics.

It was good to feel the cold smoke on the face again 🙂
