Well, Telemark Dave went skiing on a golf course today, so I figured I'd better fire up the old thread to get things going for this season. Here's the snow chair from a few days ago, there's a bit more now but it is too dark for photos (damn time change):
There is some cool stuff to talk about, for example, some of our crew have negotiated permission to do some glading on private land, opening runs on a long abandoned ski hill. More on that later.
We have been holding off on skiing in the woods since the ground is so wet underneath. I think it is "go time" now.
If you are new here, and are saying WTF, this story has been going for a while. Here is your opportunity to catch up:
So yeah, I went for a meadow skip on a local goof course, mostly on account of the aforementioned dirt base under about 10 inches of fresh.
Fast grass is a good insurance policy.
Being still smitten with Voile Love, I used my Charger BC's, which seemingly shocked SBR at first.. But like getting turned into a newt by a witch, he got better.
Strangely, the course was empty. golfers are so weak sauce..
Although I called it a skin track on FB, we all know it was a fish scale track..
I toured and skipped my way around the back nine, occaisionally finding a wee slope to lay down a couple la-dee-da type turns..
Just as I was ending up my skip, I happened upon a fine little slope below the 10th tee. Funny how old habits are hard to break.. I farmed a few turns for a few runs listening to a Tragically Hip tune ear worm in my head. Looked up to the Gord above and said, hey man thanks..
