I ran into my good friend Andy this morning. He works at 3 Mountain Equipment and his shift started at 2pm this afternoon, so we wanted to get in some good runs before work. We met in the Upper Parking lot and headed for the Sterling lift. On the lift ride up we discussed which trails we wanted to ski and why. I mentioned to Andy that Hangman’s Drop and Chute were groomed last night with a winch cat. We agreed that steep groomed terrain would be a bunch of fun. Next we headed for Highland Glades for some powder in the trees. The photo you see here is Andy finding some of that powder in the trees.
