    KW - The K-factor really does exitst - 12/02/05 TR

    WOW....CAW....FINALLY, WE HAVE SNOW!

    Music: Breakage - 'Ask Me'



    Half of Kirkwood was warm hot sticky dirt just a week ago.



    I have no idea how much snow they got last night but it was measured with a yardstick. Dave Schwartz on the weather channel wasn't really calling for a bluebird day...but I'll take it.

    Chair 5 was frozen, and Chair 6 wasn't going to open for at least two hours, so I waited with Lou to take one mellow untracked pow run under chair 6, to wait in line with Lph, and AKA for second chair.



    Second Chair!!!



    Doesn't look too bad....



    Someone had first tracks the whole way down this



    AKA, on Jims....



    AKA, thank yewwwwwwww!



    Lou's turn - He's committed now...



    ...gets a faceshot in the compression



    We then ventured out passed Rabbit' Runs, and I guess nobody else thought it would be any good considering these are my tracks from the previous runs.



    Belly of Oops now killed....



    Traversing out into Wagon Wheel....Lou decided to rock down this...



    Just below the Notch, Patrol set off this beauty



    Nice crown...



    And debris all the way down to the drain...



    Walter and I decided to blaze trail and get some cold smoke down here...

    Holy Sheeite!! I am tired, spent, and happy. AND I CAN SKI AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!! I took it easy the first day on the new ACL but dam it was fun. A couple of warm up runs on 11 then off to 6. Hit up Pali and got some freshies then followed the crew down to wait for 10. It wasn't gonna happen so we went to 11 and hooked up with THumper for a few runs (good to see you out there again) then went in for a little break. When we got out we noticed a line forming for the wall so we got in it. Half hour later and we are on the 15th or so chair (with 666 just ahead of us). Slides had there way with most of the upper bowl but the tree shots around waterfall were absolute goodness. Then over to Eagle bowl and a couple runs there in more untracked pow. I was getting a little tired so DG and I called it quits a little after two but it did feel great to get out there again.

    nice pics C...

    Squaw only opened the kiddie lifts up top today and were offering "spring sking" discounted ticket prices of $46 for the day instead of $65......conditions had to be bad for them to do that.... so I bagged it and drove home early

    Huckasoreass's awesome poach wasn't an option

    didn't have my laptop so I didn't see this Kwood thread and made the assumption that every other Tahoe resort was the same damn it

    at least you guys got some, kudos

    SquawMan - That BLOWS!!!

    I hate to say this but today was probably even better. Nice cool temps, blue sky, skiing with the family and all the maggots. We got some 'first of the season' rippin' groomers, some super cold blower at the chair 10 opener, run after run untracked in Eagle Bowl under the Cirque. Hucks were thrown down all over the place...by everyone.

    ...it was rad. I'll post a proper TR with the highlights tomorrow night.

    It was damn cold today! In the teens all day. Still fresh untouched lines below Palisades and the lines of Chair 10 were very nice out of the avy debris. I saw your tracks in Jims and all I can say is nice! No way would I give up that much base. I'm not worthy to share the mountain with you guys, but conditions were great for the first day out.

    The season pass line was all the way into the plaza. They finally gave us exempt tickets, and I collected the pass in the PM. Then visited Mountain Utilities and wrote the whole thing off.
