Nightmare. We were not allowed to ski down Chair 1 until 1PM, but it was still impressive then.

Another view of the Chair 1 trees.

View of Emile's on first ride up Chair 3.

This was the last picture I shot near the top of Thunder. As it was about 11:30AM when I started skiing, I put the camera away, skipped lunch and feasted for the next 5 hours: 22,920 vertical, 15K of it in powder.
