At the top of Chair 23 at Mammoth – 80 MPH winds – 4/9/13

This is a photo of my friend Carey Kish and me at the top of Chair 23 at Mammoth Mountain Ski Resort.  The wind was howling at about 80 MPH.  The white specks in the photo are actually ice crystals flying sideways.

At the end of the run our faces, and especially or lips, had been peppered by the ice.
