Gorgeous day today on the rock pile, made all the better by the fact that it was my 7 yr old daughters first time skiing on washington. I am going to guess around 700 vertical but it may have been less. Conditions were spectacular, get out there this weekend if looking for one more day. Good to be around skiers again, no politics or virus, just good people having a good time. Will post pictures after putting kids to bed.

Right where I want to be
Did Hillmans Highway today. It was in great shape. Probably 50-60 others there.
Snow was soft and plentiful.
Got about half way down and my telly binding pulled off my left ski. Luckily I fell and stopped in 5 feet but my ski went down 150 before it somehow stopped.
Inched my way down to it with the binding still on my boot and screwed it back in and skied the rest of the way down.
Son went back up and did another run while I enjoyed some a beers we had stashed in the snow with my buddy. Didn’t trust my binding for another run.

Will try to post pics later.

They opened it back up last week. Also everyone seemed to social distance and remained in their own groups anyway.

That's great, way to get after it! Thebigo, kudos on getting your daughter to the level of being able to ski the snowfields so young, I bet you both were beaming, rightfully so.

Thought we were done but then my daughter had to run her mouth to her grandfather on Father's Day about how much fun she had on the snowfields. The result was three generations skiing on the rock pile today, dads first time skiing on Washington since he busted his ankle on Hillmans in 1963. Roughly 300 vert left but still a great time if looking for a few more turns, easy access and good people. Hope to post a few pictures once the kids are asleep.
