After a chaotic holiday rampage from Los Angeles vacationers. . . I was
relieved when 911 made a phone call informing all local residences to
stock up on candles, food, and emergency supplies. The fear drove most
people back south to their homes. Few battled the storm and some even
tried to make their way up here. After three solid days of snowfall,
Mammoth received around ten feet and I was leaving... Why?
The morning we leave.
I guess the thrill of an adventure has the power to drive oneself out of town.

what to expect, the three of us drove for 15 hours to Grand Targhee
Resort, a secluded little ski area in Wydaho (Tetons on
Wyoming/Idaho border). Arriving late that night, we found out that we were going cat skiing the next day.
crew was a nicely toasted gang of Mammoth locals, two telemark skiers,
four snowboarders, and the three of us. Our guide reminded me of the
cowboy from "The Big Lebowski". Our reward for the trek. . . a shit
eating grin permaprinted on all or our faces.

The snow continued to fall and it was nothing but bliss. The lack of people and leisurely vibe made it worth all the adventure. It was the
perfect vacation for me, I even called into work, to stay one more day
and cruise down to Jackson. In the four days we were up there, I ran
into old friends, friends of friends, and best of friends.

I wasn't ready to leave when the time came, but life calls. The drive back went fast, and the party was over. Or was it.
