J-Chute Trees and a Slideshow at Wilderness Sports in Dillon – 12/18/2014

Yesterday was pretty damn fun. We headed up 285 and did some business with the stores in Park County. The headed over the pass to Summit and did some business in Breck. Allison picked up the skis she designed for RMU/REI/Protect Our Winters and then we headed to Frisco to go get in a lap. He headed up the Mt Royal Trail and then to the top of J-Chute. There was good snow along the way and we thought it might provide the goods. There was a lot of recycled powder in there the last time we skied this zone and with the new snow I was expecting a bit of sluffing. Expectations were met and we stayed away from the J-Chute start zone. Sluff management in the trees means not getting fanned into a tree. It’s still thin out there but in the tighter trees the skiing was really good and the pack was more solid below the new accumulation.

Then we headed to the Boatyard for some dinner and some presentation preparations. Gotta love pizza and Breck Bourbon after skiing. After that we headed over to Wilderness Sports in Dillon for my slide show. Thanks to everyone that came out for it. Also a big thanks to Upslope Brewing for providing refreshments. I love talking about skiing and sharing my thoughts on getting it done. The quote that I couldn’t remember was:

“Good judgement is the result of experience and experience the result of bad judgement.”

Mark Twain

Something to think about when measuring whether you were lucky or good.
