Taylor wanted to see the races at the end of the day, closing day for Crystal Mountain.
BBQ Beach Party with Bikini Downhill and Live music
Crossing the finish line.
The winner of the contest.
For the last day of the season, they had a live band on the patio, a BBQ and races.
Most of the time, we were skiing on the upper mountain.

Taylor at the top, looking over at Mount Rainier.
Check out the two clouds. You often see these hanging out around Mt Rainer.
Relatively warm moist hear hits hundreds of feet of ice and it makes some weird looking clouds.

I love your pictures, I take alot of them, too, especially the boys. Even though no one usually likes my pictures as much as I do, or my husband did, ah well. But, I wanted to ask you, was that Cathy skiing? It sort of looked like her, but couldn't tell for sure, either way, that woman skiied well I take it; from someone who doesn't ski at all!:)

I don't know who she was.
Not Cathy, but you're right, there is some resemblance.
So many of the 38 skiers and snowboarders were very good.
First prize was a season pass.
They were just flying down the hill.
And then the hill had some compression on it, so as they hit the dip, it pushed their boards or skis up and many of them fell.
It's not the way you would normally ski that hill.
The season ended on a high note with plenty of sunshine and spring conditions. Our first annual Bikini Downhill was a hit! Ellie Piper and Liz Morton won the skiing and snowboarding division respectively, both taking home a Crystal Mountain Gold Season's Pass. Nice going Ladies. The motto of this new event is "Skin to win!" Hopefully those spectacular crashes at the finish line didn't end in too many spring-corn rashes.
