Denis,

It was great skiing with you and Tim on Sunday. The location of the low-hanging choice fruit is permanently etched in my mind.

If Timberline ever needs help removing some debris in the woods, I bet I could find several volunteers ...

Jarret is a future tree adventurer. I predict he'll be moving either north or west once he graduates.

Tim and I had some fun explorations with Bill (wgo) on Saturday.

These darn midatlantic skiers, give 'em 1000 vert of pristine packed powder and you still can't keep 'em on piste.

I had an absolute blast on both saturday and sunday in the trees. I would have never had the gumption to go in there alone, some of those sections were awfully tight. But with a few more experienced powder hounds leading the way how could I say no? It was a total blast. Thanks to JohnL, Dennis and WGO for leading the way. Jarret seemed like a natural tree skier as well. I predict more out of bounds mischief if we ever have another DCSki gahtering.

Its a hard call for next weekend... Blueknob and Extrovert or back to T-line? Hmmm...

Side bar: Someone said in an earlier thread that there is a difference between Tree Skiing and Glade skiing. I think I am beginning to understand the difference.

Thanks for the compliments guys! It was a lot of fun. Hopefully in the next few days I"ll get caught up on everything and finish my article.

I'm sorry that I wasn't able to stay for sunday and meet everyone else, but saturday still was a blast. And I'm gonna be out of town on non-skiing activities the next two weekends, darn it, but the rest of you all get out there and take adavantage of these conditions!

As far as volunteering to clear out some glades at Tline over the summer, I would be up for that. If we formed a group and approached Tline Mgmt do you think they would let us?

I have to pile on with support for a glade clearing project. I have expereince with a chain saw and have done a very little work on other trail clearing operations. Albeit for hiking trails not ski trails. --Tim

Glades and tree runs are a blast. One of my instructors from way back taught us how to ride tree lines to find the good powder. It was awesome. All these cool little stashes of knee and thigh deep snow begging to be slashed. I haven't done it in a while though, the snow around here just never seems deep enough.

If a group were to approach t-line and offer FREE work doing say, clearing out cherry bowl, I doubt if they would say no. It would take some effort, but would be paid back ten fold after a 30" powder dump.... E-mail me and I will tell you who, what, when, and where, with the management.
