great photos Snowy! so screamer is a boarder? not surprised. he was cool from the moment he came on the scene! :cool: he seemed to take to the snow real well. it's good that he's a balanced monkey. don't want him to think that weekends are only for desert peaks! i gotta remember to take his cousin up there this weekend to see how she likes skiing.

A day to test my legs out for Vertical Cure
PHOTOS: http://snownymph.smugmug.com/gallery/2660059#141022815


I decided to do the Vertical Cure Ski-a-thon (fundraiser for Scleraderma), but had not been on the slopes much in 2007, so a week before the event, I spent a day on the slopes to see how the legs felt

Mammoth Mountain
PHOTOS: http://snownymph.smugmug.com/gallery/2781354#148172049


This is my last weekend in Mammoth. Not sure how long they'll be open, but I've got hiking plans the rest of the month. It was a short season for me, but my hiking season has been great! I've got only 21 days of snowboarding this season (13 in 2007) but 28 peak summits for 2007 so far.

I got to do a few runs with Capt Powder. :D
