PIC OF THE WEEK: Pillowy Pow

Just saw that Crystal has 20 inches of new snow in the last 24 hours. I highly recommend hitting the slopes today. I skied at White Pass yesterday as part of the Hope on the Slopes fundraiser for the American Cancer Society and the snow was ridiculous.

Here’s a shot of a buddy of mine in waste deep powder:

The line of the day came from dad after a friend of ours, Connor, after he woke up Sunday morning and couldn’t find his skis and polls. Connor, a Puyallup junior high student, left them sitting in the snow Saturday night.

CONNOR: “My skis are gone.”

MY DAD: “They’re probably under a foot of snow.”

CONNOR: “Are you sure?”

MY DAD: “Well, it might be more like 14 inches.”

For the record, Connor found his skis after about 10-15 minutes of digging … and it was closer to 20 inches.
