Gerry, Jen, and Stefanie in town

Friday was a change. We went to Pasadena to see some friends. We went to McMurphy's. What we realized is that Pasadena sucks and we need to appreciate Hermosa more!

So Saturday we went back to Hermosa. Gerry surprised us on Saturday when he came down with Jen. Stefanie also came up. We partied Saturday afternoon at a house part. Then we went down to Dragon for $1 beer and some crazy filp cup. Then we went back home for a break for a couple hours.

Saturday night Kevin came down and we hit up The Underground with Cokehead & Stephanie.

Sunday, was a traditional Sunday Funday for those out-of-towners new to Hermosa. We started at Sharkeez, then hit up Dragon and eventually made it back for happy hour at Sharkeez. What a crazy day. Hell, it was a crazy weekend!

Mammoth in April - 3 feet of powder!!

Now everyone would think that 3 feet of powder would be an April Fool's joke for this weekend but I'm not fucking around when I say it was completely the opposite. I can honestly say that this was one of the best snow days of my life!

We went to Mammoth for a 3 day weekend with a trip of 35 people from work. We went up Thursday and came back Sunday. Mammoth just got almost 3 feet a couple days before we got there. On Friday, we boarded but the upper 1/2 of the mountain was still closed. It had not been open for 2 days. The snow on the mountain was awesome!

But then it got better!

On Friday night, it snowed another foot! So on Saturday, we got out there early and the top was still not open. After starting on Eagle and then going to 25, we noticed a couple gondolas starting to go up there but no skis on the gondola. So we started to head towards McCoy (mid mountain). Then we saw some skis outside of the gondola so we went staight to McCoy to get on the gondola. It wasn't open for more than 10 minutes!

The entire top of the mountain had not been open in 3 days and it had almost 4 feet of new snow on top!!!

Take a look at some of the photos. I tried to get some photos of the powder at the top but the photos just doesn't do it justice. Anyway, the trip was fucken awesome! And another big storm is rolling in all week. I'm not going to go up this week, but I was talking to Kevin about maybe going up on the weekend of the April 15th. With a base of 17 feet and nonstop dump alerts, who's down?
