|Boy #2 launching into Tight Line at Saddleback|
All things considered Saddleback is holding up well. The snow making trails have plenty of cover and as usual, we had a really good time. We were hoping for a bit of snow during the day but the snow stayed south. Nothing worse than returning home to snow in your driveway when it didn't snow on the mountain.
I do have to say it is the most ice I have ever seen on the groomed Saddleback runs. By mid-day things just got scrapped off which really exposed the layers of blue badness underneath. We stuck to the sides of the trials but it was hard to avoid. I don't want to discourage you from going up. It is still a lot of fun but get there early to take advantage of the fresh groom.
Take a look at my Twitter feed and Facebook pages for some GoPro video edits by the boys. I also embedded @alecphoto video edit below. Winter will come back soon! Lots of ski season left!
