Tales from the Hinterland: 2018/2019 edition

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:

2011/12: lost for a few years, this season was recently rediscovered: Tales-from-the-Hinterland-winter-of-2011-2012
And, if I may, call your attention to a few separate and fun TRs from that season:
the Dog Day Ski Adventure
The Tour de Valley
and, SBR Has an Epiphany

Special TR from March 2013: A Dream Comes True, Sort Of.

That is one voluptuous looking chair right there.

Agreed, but I don't dare sit in it.

I'd say your woods look open for business.

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..  
Thanks. Yup.

Looks like some good GC BC.

Not a bad way to start the season.  Snow looks a lot better than the schlop we get down on this side of the lakes.

I was wondering how the chair was doing. Looking good!
