Bluebird morning! Took a while to open, but Cloud Nine Express finally opened, and we tackled it as soon as we could. Tons of powder off to the sides meant some of us (ok me) got our butts kicked, but we did that, then dragged burning legs up to the top for some more fun. Gorgeous conditions held til the usual early afternoon, blue skies and fresh snow!
Much to our disappointment, the cafe at the top of Mammoth was closed, and right around early afternoon is when the wind picks up and we ended up skiing/boarding back down in a whiteout. As usual!
The rest of the group had made it up by the afternoon after craploads of snow delayed their drive up, then off to the hot tub and the mounds of pasta and bruschetta that Dan made for dinner. Great times all around!
