First turns of the new season! About time! I spent all of last week watching the rain park over SoCal, watching the rain wipe out the local resorts, praying for the snow level to drop. Last Tuesday the temps dropped enough to deposit 2 fresh feet of white on Big Bear. Ruth and I got there early and got on the runs while the off-trail tree stuff was untracked. Ruth got to take her shiny new Christmas snowboard/bindings for a spin. Verdict: LOVE.
The weather stayed cool and the snow held up until after closing time. I got alot of time in the trees and the snow was great. I have to admit that we were very surprised by the lack of crowds, considering the overnight snow-fall and the Christmas holiday. Great Day!
