The day after the ski-a-thon: http://community.webshots.com/album/549238439jAeYEc

I started training on the stationary bike March 1st, and what a difference it made! Last year I only did a few runs the day after because my legs were really sore. This year I was on the slopes for over 6 hrs! :D

Spring Conditions - Mammoth Mountain

First time back in a month and the snow is almost all gone from our front yard. Great spring conditions and plenty of snow on the mountain! A fun and relaxing weekend!

Memorial Weekend (day 1 of 3)

The slopes were hard, fast, and scary. We went to the top only once. SnowDude's hands were burning from the friction as he slid helplessly from top to bottom (everyone was sliding down). We left shortly after to take the Rubi out on the dirt roads south east of Mono Lake. I had my Desert Summits book and there were a few peaks in the area. Drove to Cowtrack Mountain (8,874'), found a 1890 rock cairn/survey marker, and lost my prescription glasses somewhere between while getting in and out to take pics. :( Got halibut at Whoa Nellie Deli, and met a forum member (mammoth forum) and said hi to some splitboarders that we rode with last spring. They said the backcountry was pretty bad too.

Granite Mountain dayhike and Mammoth Mountain turns

Photos: http://community.webshots.com/album/550393203mieLFk


Plan was to hike Granite Mtn (8,920') early, then snowboard in the afternoon. We missed the road to the trailhead and wasted 1.5 hrs driving around. We made it back to Mammoth for 2 runs and earned our turns. Parties after! :D

Its skirt day! And the theme is Hawaiian! Too cold to wear coconuts, but a few of us wore grass skirts, hawaiian shirts and leis! Fun day on the slopes!

Snowboarding in July. Snow was heavy and slushy, but still fun
