Day Off

Monday was a day off so Kay, Whitney, and I headed up to The Basin for an afternoon of skiing. In addition to being another perfect, bluebird day, we found some great skiing. The wind did bang up a few spots up high, but once we got clear of those, we found smooth skiing with really good cover on The Face, The Spine, Rock Garden, Standard, Radical, Challenger, Slalom Slope, and North Glade. A decent NW wind was blowing and The Spine was smoother and softer each time we skied there. That velvet feel. After three great hours of skiing we headed for some 6th Alley socializing and a late lunch including baked mac and cheese and a milk stout. Nice day off.

Al: Thanks as always for the blog updates. They are just a great way to stay up to date on ABasin. We too had the holiday off, and I gotta tell you it was just ideal. The snow is fantastic, the staff were all in great moods, and that chicken and waffle dish in the 6th Alley Bar.....wow, that is the dish to get. Pretty darn close to a perfect day. Thanks to you and all your staff for keeping ABay awesome.

All, i too love the blog and it is great to see what's been happening and what's coming up. A-Basin and Bridger Bowl are my favorite ski resorts: ripping terrain, local atmosphere and no condos or hotels. In addition to your awesome blog you should think about adding daily videos as well. Check out Bridger's site, I think people would love to see people riding the basin terrain in that medium.

I really enjoyed monday, but the rocks in Pali really did a number on my bases. Hopefully they wont be too expensive to fix ): Cant really complain though, the skiing was great. hopefully I'll get my skis repaired soon and be up there again.

Maybe we can go skiing and I'll point out where those rocks are :)

Well, they're not called the "rocky" mountains for nothing. Good to see those rocks getting covered with snow. I've been doing a lot less p-texing this year than the last couple of seasons!
