Jeff, Timothy, and I drove up to Taos on Friday to get a day of skiing in before the GS race. I forced them to hike a Kachina with me. Jeff and I managed OK, but Timothy had some trouble with it. Gorgeous day up there though! Well worth the time!






Coming I finally slotted a Hunziker chute that I had been eyeing for a while. The entrance was rocky, but I thought I could make it in clean. First turn and GRRRIINNNDDD on a big rock under 1" of powder. Ug. The rest of the run was great and I worked on jump turns.


Jeff and I also did Lift Shack Chute and Juarez. Had dinner with Bill at the Downtown Bistro, a classy spot with live guitar and a fire place. We were the only ones in there but the food was good, and a SF Pale Ale was even better. Jeff and I headed back to Angela and Tim's for the night and watched the Blizzard of AAAHHH's - Glen Plake's finest moment in Chamonix.

Saturday was the GS race -- last of the Corporate Cup series. Course was set very straight, so I went into it too conservative on the first run, but tucked more on the 2nd to shave off 1.5 seconds. Still ended up mid-table though 22nd out of 44!



After lunch, Jeff and I kicked back to watch the Freeride Championships off Kachina. Amazing stuff, with huge air and arials.


Sunday, was the first soccer game of the season. I felt I played a solid game and we came away with a 2-0 win.
