4/11/15

Jess's right hand is huge!
Received a ride up this morning from long time friend Jessica Burchiel. Old Man Winter finally decided to show up at Mt Baker with about 10 inches of cold smoke. By 8 AM we were on the skin track heading uphill. It snowed hard all day and everyone was exerting a great deal of energy. Consequently, we were wet with  sweat and melted snow inside and out!!

Trying to wrap up the quest was at the forefront of my mind. I just kept pushing myself to keep moving and stay warm. Jess did amazing for only her second day on the hill this season. We did two pan face laps and two in the gravity rollers. Afterwards, I could see the fatigue in her eyes, and feel it in my knees!!! She headed to the car and I did one more in the complete white out just to get 5 in for the day!!

Day 101 85 laps 15 left to go!

Last night was the annual " Super Hero Party" at Chair 9. Every year it marks "Sparkle" Sam's birthday and is a blast for our little town. I was pretty tired from yesterday, and left the bar before midnight with plans to ride with Grady and Heather Haines.

As usual, someone's Facebook photos from yesterday reminded everyone how fun it is to snowboard!! The lot was full when we rolled up around 10 AM.  We did our first two lines down "sticky wicket". as it has not been opened this season. Really great runs with enough steepness for the deep day. We skinned back up and did one right under chair 6, and then finished with one down the edge of chicken ridge towards Austin's Pass.

Day 102   89 laps  11 left!!
