Rendevous Mountain reports three inches of new snow, so Ann and I head for the mountain with Jon and Katja to give it a try. The new snow is just enough to soften the icy base and make it fun. Jon and Katja give us a good tour of the mountain, starting on Apres Vous peak and working our way south to Rendevous Mountain. We decide to save the last chairlift to the very summit, where the now out-of-service tram used to go, for another day.
Ann starts getting a taste for riding bumps, even though they’re quite hard underneath. She starts seeking them out. I’m impressed with how well the split board handles all this. It’s just a bit too long for extra quick bump turns, but it holds a bomber edge and performs well overall. We practice our hard bump turns until the lifts shut down.
