I belong to the Eastside Skiing and Boarding Meetup group. A few of us are participating in "GS" Giant Slalom ski racing; a red and a blue course and the winner adds points to their teams total. The first day out was qualifying to see where you would race in the lineup. That way, the ones that are smoking fast race against others that are fast. Me being friggin old, more like toward the back. These first pictures are from a Tuesday night at Alpental Snoqualmie Summit on the 18th of January 2011. City League
By the way, this is night skiing after work. For those of you from other parts of the country, this is 45 minutes from the Eastside and 55 minutes from Seattle. Kind of cool when you think about it.
This is Valerie on the team. She's a hot shot.
This is Rick, the fastest guy on the team. He's logged so many miles on snow it's hard to even keep him in sight.
