Snotel 6 Ski Cabin - Trip #1, December 02-05 2005

Yes! The 05/06 ski season started early - we managed to rent a place from early December through late April. The first storms came through just days before our opening weekend.

I skipped dessert at my company's holiday party to catch a ride with Portia. Weather forecast promised an easy drive, nevertheless on the last 20 miles, a snow storm popped up out of nowhere. Chain control once again.

Saturday was Tom's birthday. Opening day at Squaw - the perfect setting for a powderful celebration. There wasn't too much snow over all, but the quality was good. We got discounted tickets and the lines were short (at least at Shirley Lake, where we spent most of the day).

In the evening, Melissa had prepared an amazing crab dinner for us. The following party culminated in the first axe throwing contest of the season. Needless to say, Birthday Boy won.

After bacon & eggs and bloody maries as hangover cure, we headed back to the city Sunday noon.
