If you weren’t around this past weekend you missed out on a special offering at Highlands– free refills from Saturday to Tuesday– and not the type that come from the soda fountain at the Merry Go Round.
Through the entire extended weekend it seemed like every lap in Highland Bowl was stacked with new powder, that each time we clicked into our skis and readied to drop in, all the old tracks had been filled in. We can thank several factors– the storm that kept snowing, the winds that kept loading, the limited number of skiers the hike up the bowl allows and the periodic gate closures and openings– all one needed was some smart, tactical decision making, i.e. thinking outside the “pack mentality” box, and you could avoid the herds and/or time the openings of certain areas and find untracked lines all weekend.
So here’s a few more pics:
It was awesome. Cheers to free refills!
