Waiting till the latest possible day to ski a mountain really paid off today. With a few inches of new snow at higher elevation meant the snow froze last night. This meant the skiing went from blah to YEA, or so it would seem.
I wanted to take a new route up the mountain, so I did. On the route I found a 2010 model ski in the middle of nowhere. I'm sure someone who will see this knows someone who lost a ski on this face and wants it back, the funny thing is the ski has resort bindings on it pm me and claim it....... BTW I DRAGGED THIS BASTARD ALL OVER MT SUPERIOR.
When I got to the top 2.5 hours after leaving the car 3,000 plus feet under me I immediately made the decision to drop in. I found my chute, which looked a lot friendlier than i thought it would. I skied perfect re-corn to the bottom of the middle snowfield, hiked 50 feet up and hit the suicide chute connector took that to suicide, and skied all the way out back to my car. The most fun part being that you have to walk farther at snowbird on north facing terrain to get back to the tram, then I had to walk on a south face descent top to bottom in mid June.
