More Fun In The Sun At JXN
Well, that snow that started falling previously never quite materialized, but on the other hand the sun came out! And when the sun comes out it melts everything and makes the skiing ever so fun. Unfortunately this only happens for the last 2-3 hours of skiing. So it’s best to get a nice late start and work the north facing steeps and the groomers until then.
My father at the bottom of Hoops Gap.
Hoops Gap was so nice we had to do it again. Have you seen how Marc rips?
And Jim. I like the paraglider in the background.
Ah, the end of a good day. Drink some beers, eat some food, sleep and repeat. Luckily the next day was a bit warmer, so we had more time to ski more fun stuff. The snowpack is quickly and disturbingly disappearing, but I guess that’s spring for you, especially in the 3rd worst snow year on record.
Two nice shots of my mom coming skiing through some boulders.
And skirting the shadows in the late afternoon.
My father skiing down under Corbet’s Couloir (right) and the S&S Couloir (left).
Marc coming through the boulder field.
Jim maneuvering his way through the boulders.
The skiing through the boulder field lead us to the beautifully sunny cirque.
It was awesome there. Sorry for overkill on the tree shots, but the tree is awesome.
We even found a few interesting spots right along the cliffs… (The next three photos of me are by my bother).
Just point ‘em and go. Don’t miss the turn.
And Marc on something equally fun. Note Sleeping Indian in the background :).
And my father skiing by some big cliffs.
A good end to two awesome days of spring skiing. Not too sure of what the forecast calls for us here, but I’m pretty sure it’s not going to be as good as this. Oh well, I’ve only got one more day before I have to head back east. Such is life.
