|Those lines that end up being framed by the trees were ours. Nice and steep.|
After our second run, a random lone snowboarder appeared on the other side of the valley. He yelled to us "HOW DO I GET OUT OF HERE?" We skinned over to him, and talked to him. Apparently he ignored the ski boundary, and followed the path of another group. No partner, no avy gear, no water. We pointed him back in the direction of the resort on a skin track.
|We did two laps on this slope. Pretty mellow with soft snow. You can see our skin track on the right side.|
After we did another lap, we decided to follow the snowboarder's boot pack up the hill. We were finished anyway, and we wanted to make sure he got back safely. We didn't end up catching up with him, but his tracks led back down to the Palisades Bowl into Kirkwood.
My ski partner took some really cool GoPro footage. I keep forgetting mine at home.
