I wanted to get in some birthday turns and I HAD to be home by 2. Freeman would have to do. Even with the combat skinning up to about 6500', it was still great to get out.
There is about 105cm of snow at around 7500'. It was surprisingly heavy. I figured with the cold temps it would have been lighter. We didn't have time to skin up to the "lunch rock", so we skied down from the point above where we made the igloo last year. We made a one-run-wonder-run and went through the street fight simulator on the way out.
The other cool thing worth mentioning is that Mr. Plow has hooked us up so far. In past years it seems like we get a couple car spots at the Freeman pull-out and the snowmo-derps get a Wal-Mart sized lot at Mores Summit.
Hopefully, we will have more snow in the near future and our close to home playground will be Merry for Christmas Eve turns!
