Hope your day was better than mine!

So, did they work, and how were they? Show everyone proof that your ride was a success (or even a complete failure)!

Hope your day was better than mine!

Post by rockaukum »

Nothing but a great day! Started out after the first "real" snow fall of the season. Turned on to the road to find about a foot and half! Decided to chance it and drive up a bit. Truck did good and dragged a bit on the underside.
Image
Stopped when the road turned downhill for fear of the return trip. Skinned up planning on going for the ridge but found this instead.
Image
As I got to the ridge the snow was wind blown. I did a mitt test and here is what I found. The bottom layer seemed fine but there were two layers on the top. Always good to check and be safe.
Image
It even started a very small fracture while climbing, near the ridge.
Image
Enough of the safety talk. Here is the first run.
Image
Second run.

Lunch vista.

Finishing up the day with these.

All in all a great way to start the 2010 season!

I installed surveillance cameras in a car wash.

Nice!
I spent my day making shepards pies (1 for dinner and 3 for the freezer) and watching the intermittent snow fly.

Hope I can have a day like yours soon.

You don't even have a legit signature, nothing to reveal who you are and what you do...

Best of luck to you. (uneva)

Oh, and glad to see you played it safe sticking too the low angle tree runs.
Early season avalanche is something most people don't think about.
Everybody's too excited to be out skiing in the first pow of the year!
Conditions look ripe for a nice slab! (even with the shallow snow pack)

Computer and vehicle failures - not a good day.

But this is the view from my office window this morning ;)

Is your office an airplane? Work on a mountain top? That's fantastic!

Nope, I live in the lowly village of Les Houches, a suburb of Chamonix. I just live about 100m uphill from the main street.
