Crystal Mountain bus trip

January 14-16, 2005.  Almost 30 of us had a great time on our annual bus trip. In an unusually warm winter with very little snow, we were very lucky on this trip. The timing was perfect. We had good snow on both days, plus about 4 inches of fresh powder Saturday night, and a sunny day on Sunday! 

 

Both days, we split up into 2 groups: an intermediate and an advanced group. The intermediate group did a traditional "human slalom" on a blue slope, while the more advanced group went in search of untracked powder, ... and found some!

 

On Saturday evening, after dinner, we played a couple of rounds of "Eskimo Whist" (a card game). Emilio recorded the on-slope action on video-tape. Later, still photos were extracted from the video-tape. The sharper images here were taken directly with a digital still camera. The lower resolution images were taken off the tape.

Ed suggests we ski that inviting glade on the opposing hill.


Bruce says: "Yes, I like this glade"

 


Ed says "Check out the powder here!"


Phil says "Snowboarders can do it too!

Linda gets her own fresh tracks, and this is late afternoon!

In case you wonder, the photographer made it safely down those same slopes too!
