Day 30: Fresh Tracks and Empty Slopes at White Pass

Every time the SkiZer visits White Pass, he’s amazed how empty the slopes are.

On a holiday weekend no less, the SkiZer pulled up for front-row parking on U.S. Highway 12. No lines, of course, anywhere on this mountain.

The few people the SkiZer did run into were uniformly friendly and helpful, offering advice on good runs.

About that: The skiing was great. About nine inches of snow had fallen over the previous two days and the SkiZer’s new K2 Pinnacle 105s chewed up the terrain with ease. Great runs in fresh snow were found on West Ridge in Paradise Basin and on Mach V on the front side.

All in all, a great 30th ski day.
