I won some Sundance passes a couple of weeks ago and I figured after seeing that snow report, that this day was a good one to use them. Sundance got a monster dump report of 16" of fresh overnight, and we made haste to get down there. The drive was not bad at all, and we made the resort lot in no time. Gear on and we headed up. The first run we dropped was almost no tracks in it all the way back to the lift. The first two hours were pretty quiet up there. I am guessing the word got out as a small but fun crowd showed up around 11ish. It started dumping so hard and it was pretty much free refills up till a little bit after noon up there. We stayed on Rays for most of the day because the snow was bottomless, unlike the top where you were hitting some crust under the new goods. The terrain off the Arrowhead chair was amazing. Gate 3 gave us some of the best turns of the day up there. The Far East head wall did not open when we were up top, so we did not get to sample the goods over there. We rode till our legs gave out. I felt fulfilled from the miles of powder we rode today. These are the days that we live for. Luxury turns and lapping pow with good friends. Enjoy the edit I put together from today. My camera was on the fritz, so missed some runs because it was not working properly. Pray 4 Snow!

I decided to head up to Scotts Pass again with the crew this time. We made the climb into the road and to the gate pretty quickly. Then it was up the summer trail to the pass. The climb was quick and gave us a glimpse of what we had in store. We reached the pass and made our way up to the top. Once up there dark clouds started coming in and it was snowing pretty good. I dropped my usual line up there with some detours to explore through the trees. A quick shot down the summer trail, and we hit the final meadow out to the car. A great day in the mountains with good friends. Enjoy the edit and Pray 4 Snow!
