day 1246 – stormtrooper

image

going up cypress mountain to do some night laps in the fog. it was snowing hard with lots of new powder but we were unable to escape the fog even at the top of the skychair. within the five hour window, we squeezed in twelve runs, rode four different lifts and skied all the green and blue runs. it was overcrowded by kids and beginners early on, but they dissipated as it got darker and colder. it was really fun despite doing many unintentional jumps because all the grooves, bumps, hills and moguls were not visible in the fog

an afternoon at cypress bowl with a a highschool friendĀ got us pretty neat stats that tracked some skiing numbers. we went progressively faster with each run and it helped when we chose blue runs to avoid the crowds. my favourite run of the day was the upper fork with midway being a close second; no unintentional black diamond runs for me this time around. i stopped having feeling in my foot at our third run, but at least i wore my balaclava this time and didn’t freeze my face
