accused me of thanked me for “shaming” him into going skiing this morning. The following is a transcript of our IM conversation yesterday.
mark: wanna go up BCC tomorrow?
dug: i do want to. i'll work toward that
mark: 5:35 at park n ride.
dug: you know, i think mill d is just gonna be tracked and bumped out. i'll just get on the trainer. if i had 4 hours to go somewhere interesting, i'd get up.
dug: what what?
mark: i don't believe what I'm reading. 12" of fresh yesterday and you're saying you're going to get on the trainer?
dug: no way there will be that kind of snow up mill d.
mark: brighton/solitude had storm totals of 18".
dug: keep talking.
mark: there'll be close to that up there.
dug: i'm listening.
mark: and there's lots of acreage and not enough heathens in this valley to track it out in one sunday.
you might have to cross someone's tracks, but it'll be a far cry from bumped out.
dug: we could peek over that low angle north westerly bowl on the other side of the ridge too i guess.
mark: yes we could. when we were making laps up there a couple saturdays ago, there were dozens of people in that one spot, and we still were finding clean lines top to bottom.
dug: almost thou persuadeth me to be a christian.
mark: well i'll be there at 5:35. If I see you, I see you. If I don't, I don't.
I’ll let dug speak for himself as to whether or not finding ankle deep powder two days after a storm was worthwhile, but the views were sure nice.
