I am a half fast skier.
- Nov 12, 2015
Long Term Update: It's been a while since I've been on the Declivities. We're having a resurgence of weather in the Sierras and Mt. Rose has been getting some nice, light snow over the past few days. Today was no exception and the morning greeted us with between 6" and 8" of the fluff. I wanted to get the Declivities in the powder even though it wasn't a lot. Once again, not disappointed. @Philpug and I spent the morning in the trees; we didn't ski one piste run top to bottom, only to get from here to there. Now, for the record, I'm not a hot dog tree skier. The snow we found in the trees was light, although pretty cut up already. I never felt like I couldn't make a turn when I wanted or needed to. Whether hopping the tails around, playing through the growing bumps, or just carving through the trees in the occasional untracked snow, the Declivities were just...fun. In the chopped up snow on the return to lift runs they just pop through, around, or over the piles. While I can definitely wait for spring conditions (I'm digging the winter conditions we have now!), I do look forward to these skis in those conditions.
