Caught a ride up with Jeremy the neighbor. The arctic fart came in just right and the rain that was supposed to fall became snow!!!! A couple inches at White Salmon and over a foot above 5000 ft!!!
This is always a good scene when you roll in the lot!!!
First run was out to the same line we did yesterday. It broke huge yesterday, so it was a good line to "feel the snow" and not be too risky. The snow was soft and appeared to be holding well!!! I was gonna let Jeremy go first, but then my powder fever got the best of me and I dropped in....
We met up with "Everyday" Alex and Shayla Maupin. Alex was hiking with no shirt on and was a trip as usual. Today was the first time I ever rode Hemispheres by hiking up the Gunner's Bowl Saddle. Been fixing to do it since chairs 5 and 8 closed back in January and it felt great to do it. Snow was getting warm, but was fantastic!!!

The crew hiked back up the saddle and through the ski area to Pan Face. Another stellar run with excellent lighting!! Got a little peppery towards the bottom,but might have been my favorite of the day!! Back in the lot we ran into Brody the lifty and he treated us to some cold Bush Beers. Head for the mountains with Bush beer!!! My dad's favorite!!! 52 hikes now!!!
