Ski Day 16: Sun-shine in the drought

Vert: 11,509 m YTD Cum Vert: 167,359 m
Runs: 22 YTD Cum Runs: 284

You know that snow we need? We haven't got it yet. While the weather today was near picture perfect with bright blue skies and sun all day (though a bit chilly with -13° to -5° temps)...

did I mention we need fresh snow? The hardpack's mighty firm in spots, and it took a lot of effort from Mr. Sol to soften things, and even by 2 PM, those "in the sun all day" faces like Angel Flight were still pretty firm. At 12:30, the south chutes on Goat's Eye were still a lot harder than most people would like. Rocks aren't the problem (still). But the conditions aren't keeping the riders away. Cars were parked 2.5 km past the gate, and Divide had a solid line to the end of the corrals all day.
