Following are many photos that I took yesterday on Super Bowl Sunday Feb 3, 2008. Each photo averages under 200k. They are large and clear but one should have DSL at least to down load these in a reasonable time. I used my old standby, 1000mm Sony digital big lense camera and took it up on the mountain and shot these photos from the chair and the slopes.

Our local ski area received national attention on the Weather Channel yesterday as having the most snow of any place in the entire USA.

2/4/08 Ski Report this Monday morning .... Mt. Shasta Ski Park now officially has 259" at the top and 216" at the lodge .... This is over 21 feet at the top now and almost as much down in the parking lot!

We will start our trip with photos showing snow as low as Lake Shasta, then a shot up Interstate 5, then shots up the McCloud Hwy off I 5 and shots up the Mt. Shasta Ski Bowl Road to the Park it's self. And then photos of the park and powder where it took me 15 minutes to dig myself out after a crash. This is one of the best first track places in the USA ...
Then on our way home a stop at the city of Mt. Shasta City.

Here and at the bottom of this page go to link to Mt. Shasta Ski for photos 2009, of Becky, me, Uncle Joe, Holly and the Rust's at Ta-who? .. We did put one photo of the Rust's on that page where us common peoples have to ski and eat in the parking lot! .. Grin

A valley for the train to travel through

This is a flat roof folks ... Flat so the snow doesn't slide off on someone

Damn .. I know there's a ski here somewhere!
