Since the highway was closed on the 2nd (darn!) and I couldn’t be at work on the 3rd (double darn!), and it was slow at work, I called in and took another day off. Whoo hooo!!! The best day of the 14 day trip!

Hard, fast conditions. Be careful out there! Heard there was another death yesterday (2/8). :tear:

Some friends of mine went to Tahoe this past weekend and claimed that this recent dump was some of the best snow they've ever skied on in the Sierra Nevada mountains....ever! Man, I really wish I had gone with them...stupid work got in the way again.

My hiking plans didn't work out, so Friday afternoon I decided to join SnowDude and Mike (there since Thurs). This was Mike's first time in Mammoth and he had a blast!

Saturday: snowed all day, high winds (140+mph gusts), low visibility, warm so couldn't see out of goggles (snow melt)

Sunday: blue skies, no wind, beautiful and fun day!

Vertical Cure Ski-a-Thon for Scleroderma Research

Photos from Fri/Sat: http://community.webshots.com/album/549148051GZkLIT


This is my third year participating in the Vertical Cure Ski-a-thon for Scleroderma Research.

Vertical Cure is a fundraising alpine ski event, challenging participants to ski as many vertical feet as possible in one day. Participants collect charitable pledges based on the total amount skied. The donations will assist in finding a cure for Scleroderma - a chronic, autoimmune tissue disease that currently does not have a cure and affects 300,000 people.

http://www.verticalcure.org

With some training tips from Trekker, I did well in this event. I came in 1st female, 1st snowboarder, 2nd overall with 62K vertical. Two skiers tied for first with 69K. :D :D :D Still waiting for the exact numbers from the organizer.

Still working on photos from the day after
