Anybody been shuttling the tree runs at the pass this week? I remember some Decembers where the stumpy goodness was just too sketch to ride the tree runs at all. Hows it right now?
Even though I'm an alpine skiier most of the time, this is exactly why I started wearing my tele kneepads in the early season. I feel more comfortable knowing that I'll probably be going into the trees even though the base is questionable. Got a buddy that ducked into the trees and hit a stump on Christmas eve a couple of years ago - he was out for the remainder of the season. I may be missing out on some good turns but I don't mind staying out of the trees until there's a little better base.Took a rock to the outside of the knee and bruised that tendon under the kneecap on a rock at the pass two years ago in early season.
