Power Rides in Tunnel Bowl April 20 2008

Pete’s first ascent Long time Breckenridge buddies: Brian, Pete and Bud took a windy UpSki ride in tunnel bowl on Sunday the 20th. Huge Cornice on the white wave area of the bowl, some of them approaching 20 feet of vertical. After brief checkout, Pete followed buddies Brian and Bud out of the base area by the Tunnel complex. Even with winds gusting to 50 MPH the mountainside was quickly tamed and wind powered ski lifts were everywhere. With the strong wind came a whole bunch of smiles and hours of fun. Check out the slideshow here. Unknown to us, Jon Harrington of the Red Baron Canopy fame, arrived later and UpSkied across the bowl from our position.
