I’m in Mammoth this weekend taking my Wilderness First Responder recertification class.
They give us 1 hour for lunch…
I figured I could zip up to the hill and crank out 1 lap.
I was actually able to get 2 runs in and I was stoked!
I was singing as I skied down.
I haven’t skied in jeans since I was a kid.
The class is excellent and the teachers are impressive but I’m not used to sitting all day.
Getting out for a rip at lunch was key.
I got in one lap in the off-piste on Chair 23 and the snow was slushy, moguled, and fun.
On my 2nd lap I skied the groomed run off the top all the way back to my car at the bottom of Chair 2 and it was so fun.
Good corn snow top to bottom with no stickiness.
It was a very windy day but all the lifts were running I believe.
That wind kept things cool but it was still in the 50s.
My class ends today and I can’t wait to get out and rip Mammoth again at lunch today and all month long until the close.
