Great weekend spent with great people (2/28/2015 – 3/1/2015) up at White Pass Ski Area for the annual Winter Carnival, which was blessed with 8″or so of perfect cold “velvet like” powder, for both days! This last storm really set the mountain up perfectly, they are now open daily with fabulous grooming for some really high speed carving, along with great park features for those who rock! However, my true love POWDER, was found all weekend in their bc, which is truly amazing, especially because we had seen only 5 other “ski skinners” playing in the goods!?! BTW, the lower timber zones, in the bc were still the bomb last night at closing, so if I could, I’d be standing in line, waiting for first chair at 8:45AM

Even though White Pass can be done in a BIG day from most places East or West of the PNW Cascade Crest, our Team piled in to the the White Pass Village Inn which was just across the “road” from the base area. This being important, because you don’t want to miss a minute of the fun, including the amazing fireworks display (as seen below from the 100+ degree pool, the Village Inn provides to soak the muscles and reflect on good livin’!). Lots of video to crunch from this action packed weekend, so stay tuned for the edit later this week. Live to Ski Another Day!
