WELCOME TO DUSKPATROL!

This site was created as a journal about adventure in the mountains, on the bike, in the ocean and enjoying the great outdoors. From time to time I will post these experiences so others may learn more about them and hopefully enjoy them as well.

Thanks for reading, and feel free to drop me a line to make suggestions!

Good Snow...

Today was a great day at Kirkwood. It seams the higher elevation has resulted in a colder temperature, and the result.... Wel almost as close as you can get to great fress POW.

OK so it is not the deep stuff, as the wind and time has consolidated the base, but the snow is this greaqt chalky soft stuff.

And there is evidence that the lifties at Kirkwood have gotten some benefit from the economic stimulus package, and this may mean their pot budget is increasing. Today a friend of mine had to rent skies. When she got to the top of the mountain, she was puzzled, why one sky was significantly ahead of the other no matter what. Turns out the rental department gave her two different length skis! Makes you wonder if somewhere on the mountain had the same problem, just with a different ski!?!

Looking forward to tomorrow.
