Today we got to sleep in a little, but we had big plans for the day which required us to get moving somewhat early. Our big plan for the day was to rent skis and get up to the mountain to get in a little summer skiing. We did our best to stand out by wearing ridiculous clothing. I wore fluorescent orange pajama pants with a black dragon emblem on one leg, and my bright green rain shell. Amazingly enough, I did not have the most outrageous outfit. 12 Ounce had procured a magnificent one-piece ski suit from the thrift store which was light purple and black zebra stripe. It was definitely a sight to see. I'll do my best to get a picture of all of us posted soon.
The snow was typical of late spring/summer weather, which is to say, it wasn't great. That being said, it was the first time I had been skiing in a couple years, so it was still really fun for me. For the girls it was definitely subpar since they are used to skiing a winter in Tahoe. Timex on the other hand had never been skiing before and thoroughly enjoyed it. He picked it up quickly and even did a black diamond by the time the mountain closed at 2pm.
After our ski escapades we went back to town, picked up our bags from the Motel, and ran a couple errands before heading back up to the mountain and took another bus up to Red's Meadow, where all of the Mammoth craziness began.
We walked a couple miles, stopped by Devil's Postpile and then found the nearest patch of flat ground to sleep on. Sleep is going to be great tonight!
