A little bonus in case you are inclined to head to Snow Bowl this weekend … yes there is a lot of snow and it appears all runs are open. I spent quite a bit of time this afternoon cruising the slopes and shot this on my last pass before heading home. I started my runs a few hundred feet above the peaks and worked my way down. Agassiz is the peak visible in this shot and is the peak that you see when coming North on I-17 … it is only a few hundred feet lower than Humphreys Peak and given the angle of view from the highway totally blocks out Humphreys.
I was at 11,520’ when I took this shot which is about 800’ below the peak … lots of skiers on the lifts and the slopes … the moguls on the run on the left look awesome which is probably why there are only a few skiers taking that run.
The mountain to the right of the slope of Agassiz is Mt. Elden which tops out at about 9300’.
Anyhow, have a terrific weekend, if you are a skier, you’re in luck, it looks good!
The green of all the fields is mine, the stars, the night, the wind at play,
A peaceful heart, while quietly
I go my way
