Looks sweet but bites: skiing Alpine Meadows today

Alpine Meadows, California. 9:30 AM, temp around 22 F, 7 inches fresh snow.

Skiing on these (love my lady Samurais):

Just enough snow to cover icy bumps and make The Face look tasty:

The trees in the D chutes under the chair really were tasty, no shark bumps:

Followed by lower 3 Sisters:

Bumps beneath on 3 Sisters were okay.

It was a tad chilly at the top in the morning:

The highly variable weather turned to this after lunch:

It turned so dark they had to turn on the lights!

The best part of the day: seeing the Alpine Meadows Adaptive Ski school in action:
