What a perfect morning. On top of all the snow, the sun broke out of the clouds and made for a perfect morning of bluebird powder skiing. On my first trip to Pali Lift, I bumped into a old friend, Jim McDonnell. We had a great morning skiing The Face, Slalom Slope, Max, Max again, Long Chute, and East Gulley. Never felt a firm surface. Powder every run. Had a bowl of chili at Black Mountain Lodge and now I am standing by waiting for the Ski Patrol to open the East Wall. Nice.
