    Are you still living in Kenya ????
    Thanks for the reports Gavin. Are you riding the "Bastard" ??

    I am guessing that our friend from Kenya is some sort of spammer bot, just a guess.

    Thanks for the photos!!

    PS. What's up with arriving at 11AM on a pow day???? Forget to set your alarm? Must be nice living an easy 45min drive from the ski area.

    Yes ... that is my "Bastard" in those photos in the Bowls (see previous page 5)!
    I do not ride my Prior at all anymore ....
    I still need to show you my NEW (post Aspen) bindings ...

    As for arriving at 11am on a powder day .....
    Sorry to rub it in ... but I can go to Meadows any day I like, when ever I like ...
    so for now ... unless I know Stadium is open and freshly groomed with NO people on it ...
    I don't feel the need to race up there early .... especially in Spring when it might be Icy early.
    Also ...this gives me time for my morning coffee and do a bit of work before leaving,
    so if there is anything IMPORTANT to take care of .. I can ...
    which is easier from home at the computer ..than on the slopes with just my iPhone.
    BUT ...if somebody else is going up early ... I have no problem going early to meet up with them.
    and YES ... it is GREAT being so close to Meadows ....
    as I wrote ... I FREE WHEELED most of the way home today as I HAD NO GAS in the TANK ....
    While coasting home ... it said I was getting 99.9 mpg !!!!
    Can't beat that ...although some of the time I was only going a few miles per hour ..
    and lot of the time only 40 mph !!!!

    Today was really nice at Meadows ...
    It was totally HERO snow where ever I went ....
    It even had some snow flurries while we were there !!
    I rode TWO, THREE and FOUR BOWL for a while ...
    and rode with my wife on North Fork ...
    She actually ventured down TWO BOWL for the first time ever today.
    She chose not to go back there.
    They dug and lined the pond for the Kona Pond Skim tomorrow.
    We have never seen that before ...so will go and watch tomorrow....
    These are today's photos !!!

    The snow at Meadows EARLY this morning was really nice when we arrived there this morning.
    It was my favorite time when you are ABOVE the cloud layer:

    We only did TWO runs though as we went to watch the POND SKIMMING CONTEST ... which we had never watched before....
    So had to go and sit in a seat early so that we would get a good spot !
    We really liked this Kite Boarder ...

    By 12 noon or so ... my friend said the snow was no longer worth riding ....
    We left after the Prizes were dished out ... but only rode those 2 early runs.
    Did not even bother going up again after the prize / raffle ceremony.
    It was a FUN DAY of practicaly no riding for us !
    We will switch to TIMBERLINE NEXT WEEK !!!!
    Bye Bye Meadows ...thanks for another GREAT Spring Season.
