Crystal Mountain What a Day!

Well today I coaxed two of my co-workers to join me on the mountain in Washington State.  We headed to Crystal Mountain which is very close to Mt. Rainer.  Today, was perfect!  It was sunny, must have been close to 45 degrees and the mountain was almost empty!  Lift lines were very short and the mountain was pretty vast.  We enjoyed a day full of sunshine and great snow.  We then had a lovely lunch with a view of Mt. Rainer on the top of the mountain.  We do warn that the Lattes and Cappuccinos are a little pathetic but the view is worth the bad coffee.  It was the first time I had a barista ask how do you make a cappuccino???  Check out the album for great pictures of Arnon, Rajiv and I and the mountain of course!

More Munich Ski Club Times in Austria

Well we headed off to another 6:45AM trip to AUstria with the Munich SKi Club. THe conditions were amazing!  It was Spring time, sunny, slushes, great mountain with vast trails.  Now if I could only remember the name of the resort.  Below is a picture of the gang at the end of the day enjoying some spirits!  See my photo album for my photos.  We are enjoying the snow on the Alps, but have to say we need more snow, we saw lots of grass and mud today.  Now I am off to the USA and some great snowboarding with more than 120 inches of snow at the base of mountains in the Pacific Northwest…
