The big snow that fell the previous week was complimented by even more this week – INCREDIBLE – some say this was the best skiing conditions in 20-years.

 

The host and co-host did a great job of running the lodge and hill.  Ski Patrol kept everybody safe.

 

Here are some pics and a few movies (dial-up connections beware) of what was happening up on the hill!

 

 

Here is a picture of a snowboarder coming up the rope tow.

 

 

 

 

And the skiers followed to get to the top of the hill

 

 

Everybody getting ready to ski (for those of you that don’t know – there is no bar/restaurant at the top of the hill at Buckhorn).

 

 

When we got around the corner we found where the snowboarders were hanging out – they were making a ramp for jump.

 

 

Here are some movies of their jumps:

 

Big Jump - No Crash

 

Aerial Jump

 

360 with Crash

 

And a little boarding down the hill

 

Yes, we had a great day up on the hill.

 

 

 

And it was all smiles at the end of the day
