Dec. 19/20 Mt. Bachelor

Skiing was so good last week, we hopped in the car and went back.   We invited several friends, but only Sue Taylor was able to make it.   We got opening day of the Summit Chair last week.  This week it was opening day of the Outback chair.  We made the mistake of starting Friday on our skinnier skis.  The fresh powder on Outback was pretty sweet, but we could have used our powder skis for the slightly thick snow.   After 2 runs on Outback we headed to the car and got our fat skis for the rest of the trip.   Worked the ski hill pretty well, skiing everything that was open and lasting until almost four o'clock.  Saturday morning brought more powder, Sue and Francine enjoyed making almost first tracks down Old Skyliner run.   Lots of fresh snow, but rapidly warming.  By 2:00 the snow was pretty cooked, but so were our legs.

Morning line-up.  We were about 10 chairs back from the front.
