This past weekend was one I will remember for many, many years, if not forever. We Drove up to Targhee on Friday night, spent the night comfortably in the Durango. The morning brought high winds and snow. Lots of snow. It started at around 3 in the morning, and did not let up all day long. I am sure that many thought it would be a crappy day at the hill, and that was reflected in the low numbers of skiers and boarders. As many as 7 or 8 chairs between riders on the DC. Incredible! The wind slowly died down, well….sort of….and the riding was some of the best I have ever experienced. Period. The photos do no justice.
We try to do that 2 to 3 times a week….I need the exercise and so do the dogs. While up there overlooking the valley, Tate suggested that we run up to KC and boot it to the top with the boards. We had seen Dean and Heather’s report and thought that running up there was a great idea! We saw Ricardo in the parking area, he had left his boots at home and had run back up after retrieving them! 😉
Tate and I had a wonderful afternoon, we seem to be together most of the time, and I guess it is because we are so alike…..hiking and snowboarding is what we find most enjoyable in life… a great combination.
Again… the photos do little to convey the mood, the enjoyment that comes from this kind of lifestyle….
The snow was perfect in places, a little crusty in others. More of the white stuff predicted for Monday/Tuesday. Temperatures are expected to rise during the later part of the week, so who knows how long these conditions will last, probably not much longer…so now is the time for some relatively easy turns with minimum of effort.
