Spring Skiing Fun
The weekend between NYC and Santa Barbara, we drove up to Mammoth for some spring skiing (and snowboarding) with S. and Jon. We had a great time; there is still a ton of snow up in Mammoth (10-14 foot base) with fresh snow earlier in the week. By the time we got there, conditions were varied, with some slushy snow at the base and hardpacked, almost ice, snow in the more challenging areas. Nevertheless, both our new skis (the 09 K2 lotta luvs and 09 k2 apache recons) performed awesomely. We had so much fun going fast through all the various conditions and it seemed like we had the whole mountain to ourselves a lot of the time. The Westin Monache was great again; perfect for an apres-ski hot tub session and ordering dominos pizza for dinner in the suite. It was our third trip to Mammoth this year; can't wait for next season!
