D. O. C.

There was the patter of rain on the trailer this Thursday morning signaling the arrival of new product for the morning session.   After yesterday’s Sun fest you had to know that the exposed areas were going to take the hit and hit they were with the overnight freeze.   This combination made  for the difficult Dust On Crust problem that attends this time of year.  I paid close attention to the earlier days of the season when the snow maintained goodness all day on all exposures.   Now that the Sun angle is getting higher the morph factor is to be considered when choosing a shot. The early runs were very nice as long as I was getting untracked or slightly worked areas, but the quality started downhill as the piles built up causing the Tiles and Piles syndrome to become an issue.  The visibility was quite good despite the clouds and light snow that was falling in between the rays of sunshine that blinked in and out as the morning wore on.  Lower Primrose Path was buffed again over night with a push even further toward Adager providing great dry chalk covered by the 3 or 4 inches .  Now that was worth the repeated visitation for the entire morning as the Peruvian side had ducked the brunt of the Sun assault.  By Noon the piles had built up considerably, sending me packing to save my knees for the storm day that is predicted for tomorrow.  The wind had not done much in the way of buffage, so the bumps were fully in effect on the off trail sections.   Tomorrow should reward the faithful with some additional sauce to stir for those who make the effort to be there early and any extra cushion will help mitigate the hard pan.  Of course, we have been in this very situation several times before this year and you have to know that the soft goodness will be with us momentarily, so now worries.  Remember, it is always good somewhere on the hill, so follow your instincts  to find the treasure.   That is part of the game…. No?   Yess!!! Ciao!!

    Dave, I was glad to see your link on the Snowbird site. Have a great day! Michael

  2. Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers? muscle build supplements http://hackettstownkiwanis.org/find-the-secret-of-the-best-build-muscle-supplements/
