When we (my mother, sister Colby and Colby's
boyfriend) arrived at the Spokane Airport, we rented a
car and made our way north to Rossland.
Unfotrunately, 40 minutes from our destination, we hit
a dear head on and cracked the radiator of the rental
car. 1 deer, 2 cars and 6 hours later we found
ourselves at our destination.
The next day we ventured up to the mountain, which
could be defined by two simple words: steep and deep.
With slow lifts and no lift lines, it was like going
back in time. Unfortunately the fog made visibilty
super bad, but we had an epic day of tree skiing.
The next day we inspected the course for a couple
runs, and then explored the awesome terrain Red has to
offer. The following day was the first day of the
comp which once again had awful llight. I skied my
run pretty well, and ended up in second overall by a
The next day looked promising with sun, but didn't
last long. By the time of the comp, the fog rolled in
once again and the light was bad. I had a decent
run, but missed one of the features I had planned to
hit. I ended up finishing 2nd overall, which was
enough for me. Unofrtunately my sister tweaked her
knee due to the thick fog.
The next two days were spent skiing the mountain in
good light, and we finally packed up from what was an
epic trip all around.
