Associated skiing trip reports: Damn that was fun!!! The Second Annual Slush Cup is in the books and I don't see how it could have been much better. The weather, the pond, the crowd, and some truly memorable runs across, through, and under the slush. All of it was just great! Skip turned in the winning run with the always popular cross two bodies of water and run your skis fifteen feet up onto the gravel beach tactic! Nobody saw that coming! Thanks to everyone for a great day, I'm already looking forward to next year!

Wow, what a day, 20 "slush cuppers" participating in the 2nd annual event! As the day went on, the sun heating the slope and the competition, we moved from the "kiddie" pool to "BIG" water, with higher speeds, bigger splashes, wet boots, and many laughs, finishing up with our usual tailgate party at the end. Can't wait until next August.

I can't think of a better way to get fall turns in. What a hoot. Thanks all, for showing up and helping make it a time to remember. We even drew a spectator crowd of climbers at the top of Castle Peak; we could hear them cheering up there. Ran into one on the way down and he said they liked Jimjar's crash into the water the best... the one where he went totally submersed and lost his hat. Thanks also to the MadDog for putting on another great tail gate party and bbq. I got a feeling next year will be even better.
