Ode To La Niña, "T2T" 11/24/11-05/05/12
leaving little time for breaking-in those rusty legs and achy knees.
Spent Christmas in Italy with the folks,
enjoying bluebird days but also mighty firm slopes.
Now desperate for some freshie stoke,
we returned to find melting snow and hopes up in smoke.
Finally a few deep Friday’s at Alpy starting in February,
followed by Saturday’s at Crystal and days that are now no longer dull and ordinary.
Spent a couple Sundays rediscovering Summit East,
with short lift lines and easy pickins’ for the powder chasing beast.
Back to Blackcomb in early March with a foot of new overnight,
made for this Shredder’s sheer delight!
Finished the weekend with a fine Cypress session,
fresh lines off Sky Chair deserving special mention.
Had an epic day with NC Heli on March twenty two,
with bottomless blower and lines too good to be true.
Loup Loup was closed that next day,
so off to Wenatchee were we had a night’s stay.
Then to Mission Ridge the following morning,
finding the goods at Bomber Cliffs and Microwave to be far from boring!!
Ahh...spring is upon us yes I know,
but I’m just waiting for the next storm to blow!!
