    Pond Carving

    1) Washing out heel side.
    2) Cruising a blue.
    3) Catching air in the water park.

    Nice water carving. Makes the boots a little soggy if you wipeout (don't ask me how I know this )

    John, I think that's an awesome photo of you - if it were me, I'd have that one framed on the wall! Very cool! Nice shot of dredman's pool exit too.

    Alpine Board Wins Pond Skim

    Oh yeah, I was so caught up in posting pictures poached from Big Mtn Photos that I forgot to mention the back story!

    It was a field of 63 competing for a $1000 prize. Progressive rounds being made more difficult by gates on hill AND in water and lowering of the start point until farthest skim wins. Winning combo was dredman and a Coiler (NSR 182?).

    Yeah Dave! Nice victory over those two plankers
    What are you going to do with that $1k? Buy a new Coiler?

    Frigid. I believe the water comes from the ice covered snowmaking ponds further up the mountain; so just a few degrees above freezing. But the air temp was good -- I took two more runs from the top of the mountain after splashing out of the pond skim. No more ball slap inside the one-piece , but was tolerable until my hands froze.

    Our pond skim event is this Saturday and the resort decided to build a double pond because last year was 'too easy'. So they say... I did not make it across last year but I blame that on too many shots of whiskey.
    This should be interesting!

    ..back in the day

    We used to do this across a tarn at Mt. Baker back in the 60's when the Austin tow was still there. Cutoffs and work gloves. Lost about half my skin to sunburn one year after sporting a great one-day tan for a week.

    It's amazing how sssllloooowww late-June snow gets!

    The "official" Slush Cup got shut down because of drunks falling off the highway afterwards - a major advantage of destination resorts.
