5-8:
Rode my bike up the Saddlebag (never realized how much that sucks with a heavy pack. Worst part of the day). I ran into 2 skiers from Tahoe at the dam. They walked the entire road that morning :shock: and did not seem happy that the Forest Circus had the gate closed. They told me that the Mammoth Crest got 10" of snow and they expect the same up high in this area. I thought they were high! To me, it looked like it snowed about 1-2" tops at the bottom and maaaaybe 3-4" up high. Glad I was wrong and they were right! They ended up skinning up to Conness and and I watched them climb Y chute. I'm sure it was as good if not better than what I got. It stayed cloudy for the most part today which was a good thing given what the sun does to powder in May. Otherwise, the new snow smoothed things out and should transition to some really good snow in the near future.

The chute had awesome snow but rode a bit more off camber than normal at top. You just had to adjust your technique a little:

The next chute. I've been wanting to hit this one forever and finally got in epic conditions. It rode much more fluid than the first chute and it couldn't have been better snow. Being regular footed and the best snow being on the skiers right side I was able to make high speed bank turns the whole way down while my sluff stayed right down the gut (and there was some big slough!)

Above the rock choke on steepest part:

I love the entrance!:

Perfect pow in steep couloirs in May! :rock:

Foreshortening doing it's thing but you get the idea:

Started a nice wet slide on the sun baked snow outside the chutes:
