Skiing Mt Rose …

I had all intentions to be up on Mt Rose at 9:00 am with the lifts opening after 12″ of fresh powder snow but by the time I had got a rental car and rental skis, it wasn’t until 10:30 am before I got there.

There was plenty of evidence of the fresh snow. The snow here is different to that back in Oz. It is a dry powder rather than the wet and icy snow we have at home and the spring skiing here is a lot different to home – no elephant snot.

Mike Brown had organised a lift ticket for me but he was busy doing avalanche control and about every 20 minutes an large explosion was detonated on the Chutes until about 12:00 noon.

Had a great day skiing but the thighs and knees were telling me that it had been 7 months since I had last been skiing. Should be a lot better tomorrow.

Tried to find some of the caches on the mountain but had no luck due to the fresh powder. It wasn’t until I got to the base of the mountain that I could find a cache. 🙂

I managed to capture myself on the webcam at the end of the day. Caught up with Mike eventually and by the time I left the Ski Patrol, my car was the only one left in the parking lot. 😮

Grabbed a few caches on the way home but too many to list.
