FUN IN THE SCHWEITZER SUN!

I know it gets repetitive, but ...SCHWEITZER MOUNTAIN RESORT was absolutely over the top today!    I left a very cloudy Sandpoint and headed up to the mountain (hidden in the clouds) at noon.  Half way up the pass I broke through the cloud layer and burst into the indigo blue skies of Schweitzer Mountain Resort.

These are the magic days that brought me here in the first place and I was not disappointed.  Skiing the front (South Bowl) was perfect but the best was still ahead.

We ventured to the back Bowls and found ourselves in a mystical paradise.  Heading up Snow Ghost chair toward the peak, filtered fingers of sunlight shone in our faces through a wispy, "Tolkein-like" fog.  You just don't experience this very often.  As the chair headed up the the last third of the face, the fog lifted revealing the indigo skies once again.  This time, however, the direct sun was hidden behind the headwall of the North Bowl and only the mysterious individual rays of the sun shone through the snow encapsulated pines (called Snow Ghosts) lining the top ridge.  I am not eloquent enough to accurately describe the beauty of this scene and I didn't have my camera with...(I apologize for that) ...You will have to trust me, this will be an image that will hold in my memory forever.

So, Schweitzer did it again. 

By the way, the skiing was great...hard to find powder stashes (but they were there) and soft, top-to-bottom groomers. 

Just another day in Paradise.

No comments on this post? Come on, there must be some skiers out there who are as psyched as I am about this winter. We've had 6 straight Bluebird Days!

Sorry, Kent, I don't ski.  Kevin and I are building a cabin in Sagle, so we plan o get there on a regular basis next winter, but not yet this winter.

Wow. Good luck with the build! Make sure you pop into the Coldwell office and say hi! I met a guy yesterday who started skiing at 65. Now he is 75 and skiing the black diamonds. I love it!
