Ski Season Has Begun!

Now that Cyclocross season is winding down, it's time to ski!

I hooked up with my buddy Jed for a tour in the Mammoth Lakes Basin.

Here's Jed breaking trail above Horseshoe Lake.
The weather was decidedly wintry - which was fine by us.

Jed surveys the scene with Mammoth Crest behind.
We skied the area known as "Hollywood" just west of the popular Red Cone where we found great boot top powder.
Coverage is looking pretty good in these parts although Jed & I both managed to tap a few rocks. Right now the Lakes Basin is pretty much the only game in town unless you are willing to brave extremely thin conditions.

Great skiing, fine scenery, and enjoying it all with a good friend, I could not have asked for more on the first tour of the season.

Think Snow!
