Default 2/06/12 Silver Creek

SS was really fun first thing morning with lots of overnight snow making + recovered really well after another unfortunate rain event Sat. evening. Apparently a lot of people made a 3 day weekend out of the Super Bowl and it was more busy than the average Monday but by no means crowded in the basin .Beautiful sunny skies + temps in the mid 30's .Creek bound after lunch.

Beautiful weather , surface conditions and empty slopes.




Rumor even had it that there was an old retired park rider doing straight airs with a toaster on his helmet in the timberjack park.





Fishing





I really hope it snows again soon . I have no business doing jump line laps with teenagers.

There's bound to be at least a couple of storms without melting between -- and then the trees will open up....right , there has to be ...right?

Posting this video from 2 PM yesterday afternoon as we hopefully wave goodbye to the white ribbonish look of the slopes with snow in the forecast.Going slower than normal on lower Cupp to make some turns on the sugar along the edge.
Any day on the snow is a good one in my opinion.

I'm going to try my best to be there this year for the summit . It's been crazy to see bare ground up here late Jan /early Feb. (not anymore it snowed today!) But its certainly not going to keep me at home complaining about it. I love to snowboard and can only do it a few months a year around here and go every chance I get .Look how empty it is during the week and how fun these side hits were yesterday (sorry another POV)
