We did TLINE today and had a great time. we quit around 3-3:30. We had decided to make our last run when the sprinkles started. we finished that run and headed for the truck. I then pulled a bonehead move and pulled off the side of the road to answer a phone call since I only get signals in certain areas up here. I was surprised when I realized the the gravel and ice on the side covered about a three foot ditch.
Duh! I got someone to pull us out and only my pride hurt.Both people and truck came out without a scratch. This was surprising since you couldn't see one side of the truck. Multiple people stopped to help. The first gave me a number of a service center and they were there in 10 minutes and 5 minutes later had me out. Others offered to pull me out, but I was afraid we would do more damage. I'm glad I waited since the truck used a raised winch cable combined with me driving to pull it right out. If we pulled it out using a strap, it would have been a lot more likely to slide over. $45 lesson to pay more attention.
The skiing was good. packed wet powder on most slopes. My kid continued to improve and got some terrain park lessons. The drop is really piled up. I went down but didn't really have the legs today to attack it so was fairly timid. I hit upper thunder draft early as well and had same issues just not enough in legs today to push through the crud aggresively, so I took it easy. It did look a little looser later in the day. I hit off the wall right before lunch and had a pretty good time on it. I buried a ski and popped it off during a turn on the last drop, but someone was kind enough to grab it after I had made it about half way back up. Oh well, gonna jump in the shower, play a few video games and go get something to eat. Heading home in AM. Glad the weather forecastors were off a day or so!!
