hit up GOS w/ two buds the day after we got back to VT from our winter in Utah on apr 18. sunny, bluebird and highs topping out near 55-60 at elevation. huge high pressure was in place here for two weeks, but now it's raining HARD and starting to change over to snow in the hills. welcome home...
found MAJOR new slide damage in chute #1 from this winter.
we skinned in (no booting allowed on GOS ski trail from pinkham, fyi) and took almost 2 hrs to get to the base of the slide paths. then we booted up 'em.
my buds were a little behind the eight ball and slow, but no worries. we got there and that's what counts. coming in fresh from a winter touring the wasatch, i guess i had a head start on the 9-5ers.
the slide paths are STEEP, just as steep as almost anything in the wasatch. sorry for the skiing pics, but i hold no real prejudice.
a real good day playin in the mashed potatoes back home. i love sloppy seconds... and not a bad way to cap off another epic season.
