huh, ya i was watching the webcam from work and saw the george cap just hangin on relentlessly all mornin. i've spent many a day up there just waitin and waitin for the temps, sun, or lack of wind to work the magic up there and many day, it never happened.
folks from work skinned up to hojos hopin to ski somethin. they got up there around 11am as the ranger was warning folks of sliding falls. wouldn't you know, as my coworker looked up at hillmans he got to witness 2 skiers sliding for life down hillmans with one ski each, bounding down behind them.
like i've told touring partners b4 when they mentioned falling due to firm conditions in the heat of the moment. my reply is always, "don't fall, falling is not an option here, there is no reason to fall"
did ya get some soft skiing after all?
