The second day of the 2011 West Coast Session was as cloudy as the opening day was sunny. A little Pacific Northwest storm swept in but didn't faze the WCS crew. A column of skiers snaked through the park at Timberline, still enjoying skiing on a cloudy day.

You might ask yourself why a group of high-caliber athletes at a high-profile spring park shoot are out skiing in a snowstorm. The answer is simple: they all like to ski.

Plus, the WCS policy of "ski every day" still applies. Maybe next year we'll organize a paintball tournament, but until then let's lap the park.

As at any mountain, Timberline's rails get a lot of love on days when the jumps can't be hit. Conway's medium park and the lower section of Paintbrush large park, featuring the down-flat-down rail (named "Francis"), the down-flat bar and the S-rail, are crowd favorites.

Enjoy the Day 2 video and keep watching as WCS 5 rolls on…

Malone's cozy fleece-lined bandana from Buff helped make this shot possible.
