Yeah...a true cluster...I was, racing to get to the Gondi solo at 1 pm...and 
parked in the gondi lot (which I don't usually do) right next to the gondi 
loading building back door...I grabbed my skis, and ran to catch the gondi thru 
the back door. I manuvered quickly, skipping by the people in groups in line--
and I jumped right in an open car with some snowboarders...of course, right 
after the door shut and we started swinging skyward, I grasped my dire 
situation and foolishness, as I saw my Sorrels, not my T1's on my feet!

What a sucky feeling, riding up on a powder day when you get to the hill with 
only three hours left, knowing you are in for a return ride down...As Wes would 
point out...that kinda thing can't happen on the Single!
