Day 31- December 24,2014

On the merry Christmas eve, the Can opened Peak 5 and 9990. That is good. To all of us long time locals, the ski area is 9990 and the backcountry access. It was the thinnest opening I have seen. Rocks and stumps and all things not snow were the rule. The snow quality was ok. Some re-crystalized low density snow on top of mostly unbreakable wind crust. It was a weird mixture, of who-knows-what under your feet. Did two hikes into the backcountry and skied Movie Line twice. It was just great to get back to my stomping grounds. I am the Tarzan of this jungle...
