I will post photos from Mammoth here. When the mountain gets more snow we'll go every weekend.

Our first two days on the slopes. Icy . . . I hiked in the Sun morning before riding. Monday it was windy and the lifts closed

Monday, 25 December thru Friday, 29 December 2006
Mammoth snowboarding

PHOTOS: http://snownymph.smugmug.com/gallery/2309363


Monday was fun. Got first tracks of the season on one of the runs, but got kicked off when we tried for a second run.

Tuesday the lifts closed due to wind (I think Discovery chair was open).

Wednesday was a powder day! Great runs, but I tweaked my left leg behind the knee. Couldn't stand on it for about 5 min. Quit riding after 4.5 hrs to give it a rest.

Thursday was really cold and too crowded. We went home after a few hours to warm up and have lunch. Got back just as Chair 22 opened, and got some awesome runs down Avy 2 with Shifty.

Friday the lines were pretty bad so I quit early, plus I wanted to get ready for my drive to Death Valley after dinner.

I think i was demonstrating the crippling effect of a Nevado's Lemondrop Martini as I struck a pose to Madonna's Vouge!

No memory, no pain! :eek: Yikes!

Celebrating SnowDude and Skier's birthdays

We snowboarded Saturday and Sunday, then took an extra day off for SnowDude's birthday.

Owens Peak photos were already posted on the "peakbagging" thread, but here it is again: http://snownymph.smugmug.com/gallery/2439699#127947721

Wow that first photo with Ritter, Banner, and the Minarets in the background is absolutely gorgeous. Taken from a lift? I've never skied at Mammoth -- obviously have to rectify that!

I should have said first "decent" snow of the season. Out of the 13 days on the slopes this season, this weekend was fun with good weather and conditions! Normally I would have had 13 days in before Jan 1st. Instead I've got a lot of peaks in this year! :D
