Dumping Snow at Crystal Mountain

Crystal Mountain
March 1, 2007

< < previous | next > >

We lucked out! After a fairly dry winter, snow began to dump on the Cascades the day that Allen, Lang and Callista began skiing. And it kept dumping fresh powder all through the day. I was lucky to make it up the mountain in my rented Expedition to join them for beers at The Snorting Elk after their first glorious day. It kept on dumping all through the night and the next day we all enjoyed an epic day in the deep powder.

We wrapped up the second day again at the Snorting Elk, taking in a brilliant 1960s era ski flick called "Ski Bums," about some guys who break the bank at Monte Carlo to support their Alpine habit.
