    i get so confused up there, since everybody calls each chunk of snow "The Patches".

    there's like 3 patches, the middle of which i was led to believe was "The Patch" then there's the other patch around the bend (heretofore dubbed "The OG Patch") and then there's several more up the winding road.

    so which of all of those is "The Patch" or is there really no singular patch and just "The Patches" or does it really matter?

    all i know is that in June there was a "park" set up where PD took his girls last weekend, but that the "park" had been moved around the bend when i returned a month later in July.

    The one with the rails setup is the original Patch. It holds snow the longest and hence the Patch. It holds snow because its in a protected northern facing ravine, so the snow can really build up in there. The latest I've skied it, was probably Sept 99' if you don't count the ridiculous year of 1995 where the Forestdale road was still blocked by snow at the end of August.

    First of Nine

    I finally got back from my conference last night and I started sorting through the photos and edited the time-lapse video.
    Thanks for your patience.
    Here is the first of nine posted replies. There will be one for each patch skied.

    First a little review:

    1. Blue arrow - Ol' Dirty Bastard patch
    2. Black arrow - RZA line on the Wu Tang patch
    3. Yellow arrow - GZA line on the Wu Tang patch
    4. Grey arrow - Ghostface Killah patch
    5. Red arrow - Chef Raekwon patch
    6. Brown arrow - Inspectah Deck patch
    7. Orange arrow - Method Man patch
    8. Green arrow- U-God patch
    9. Purple arrow - Masta Killa's Hidden Chambers of Death

    Drunken Monkey Dookey endures the floral brutality of the hike up:


    5 Deadly Venoms Vets on the initial approach, skirting the Scree of
    Death alongside Method Man patch:


    A still of Drunken Monkey Dookey skiing the O.D.B. patch:

    I remember skinning past that clump of trees just a few months ago. In a blizzard. Looks a bit different in the glory of flowers.

    Gonna be up that way tomorrow. Plan to bike a bit around KW. Might drag the Mrs. out on a hike. My skis are in the car.

    I skied below that area at the end of June in a combined hail/thunderstorm.
    Give me a call if you want to make some turns tomorrow or Sunday.
    I'm considering exploring the east bowl patches above Winnemucca Lake in the background of the picture of Dookey.

    Second of Nine

    First, since this is the second page, some more soundtrack:


    The RZA line on the Wu Tang Patch was much longer and held some of the smoothest snow.

    5 Deadly Venoms Vets atop RZA:


    Vets unveiling his serpentine style of snowboxing on RZA's Run:


    The mysteries of snowboxing further explained 5 Deadly Venoms style on
    RZA's Run:


    Dookey exhibits The Drunken Master Styles on RZA with The ODB Patch looming in the background:


    Drunken Monkey Dookey showing that You Can't Stop Me Now on RZA:


    Drunken Monkey Dookey makes a turn in the Righteous Way:


    After Rzarectoring his skis The Abbott sprays some corn in the direction of Dirt McGirt:

    (He does this again on other patches.)

    Which leads us to this Bobby Digital photochop style through the RZA choke:


    No Regrets.

    Guermo and Dookey67, thanks, the enthusiasm can be infectious, contagious, and habit-forming.

    Part Three and a separate TR for the Lower East bowl are on their way soon.

    If you know your history, then you would know where you coming from, then you wouldn't have to ask me, who the heck do I think I am.

    Eighth of Nine

    Eighth of Nine

    Drunken Monkey Dookey knockin' at U-God's door:





    The soul dazzle of U-God.


    Turbo charging U-God.


    After skiing the U-God Patch we got checked out by this Magnum Force Marmot:

    He might have been trying to warn us about the upcoming Masta Killa's Chambers of Death Patch.

    Ninth of Nine

    Ninth of Nine

    (Like Daniel-San)
    Drunken Monkey Dookey does the Masta Killa Kata:

    He even broke through the glacial ice too!

    Drunken Monkey Dookey's horse stance:


    Surveying the Iron God's hidden chambers of death (aka Masta Killa tactical surveillance).


    5DVV passes easily through Masta Killa's Hidden Chambers of Death.


    Drunken Monkey Dookey utilizes his Shaolin Ski Jab on the Masta Killa's Hidden Chambers of Death:





    Wu-Tang Style can't f@#k with Fighting Crane Style, the necessary technique needed to survive Masta Killa's Hidden Chambers of Death.


    Finally, the final chapter has arrived.
    This was by far one of the best patch skiing days ever.

    There is more to come...
    After I finish sorting through pictures from mine and Dookey's cameras I'll post a TR from this Monday at Emigrant Lake.
