The subsequent trip shows few photos, because I spent very little time on the snow. My friend’s car broke down, along with a fiasco with some tire chains. Spent maybe 4 hours snowboarding at Kirkwood (incredibly wet snow) before retiring to the lodge for drinks.
Heard there would be one last chance to make it out, so we hit Kirkwood backside one more time. It was sunny, the snow was only a little wet, and I got incredibly sunburned.
I challenged myself a bit on this trip by heading down between two large rock outcroppings. It wasn’t as steep as The Wall but the rocks made it more interesting. To get back, we took the shelf at the top of the backside all the way across and looked down over the cornice that leads to the front side. Wasn’t feeling adventurous enough to take that run, but I’m committed to doing it next year.
