    Jen had a free morning, so we planned a few hours in Vortex over tacos and beers at Ullr last night. We got second chair this morning, then first on Cruiser, our launch point. We hoped that yesterdays snow was still in good nick. The cold night had pulled moisture out, so we had a slight hoar layer on top, which was light and sparkly



    Yahoo, its on, lets get going



    We got to the tippy top, and Jen launched into the first run



    Great run, awesome light snow, but it was a variable surface, and when I hit the bottom of the half pipe at about tree level, I broke through and ate shit, I have never spat so much snow out. If Jen shares any pics I will post! We climbed back up and hit the middle
