The fourth and final day of the 2011 West Coast Session went off under sunny skies last Wednesday, May 4, with a session on the big booter on the Palmer Snowfield.
West Coast Session 5: DAY 3
A crowd of skiers are lounging in the Roadhouse at Windell’s Camp, checking the Timberline webcams and grumbling about weather. After a whiteout storm session the day before, nobody is very stoked about skiing in the clouds again on Day 3 at the West Coast Session. “Where are the Peters brothers?” somebody wonders.
West Coast Session 5: DAY 2
The second day of the 2011 West Coast Session was as cloudy as the opening day was sunny. A little Pacific Northwest storm swept in but didn’t faze the WCS crew. A column of skiers snaked through the park at Timberline, still enjoying skiing on a cloudy day.
That’s right, we started WCS off with the public day this year. Until now the event has ended on a Saturday, making that day the logical choice to invite the public. This year we moved to an early-week schedule, Sunday thru Wednesday, and opted to kick things off with the public jam for once.
