Biggest day of the year so far. The snow was not ideal, but it was fast.
I spent the last couple of runs making tight turns on the edges of trails, playing in what little powder I could find.
R@!n early was an annoyance, but as it subsided, it left behind extremely soft snow, particularly on the slopes strewn with snowmaking whales like Quantum Leap and Downdraft.
First day of a two-day getaway with daughter #2 and one of her friends. I made it out at 8:00 AM; they followed a mere three hours later.
An awesome day in the fresh powder, cut a bit short by the need to get home for Near Years Eve dinner.
A little bit of new snow made a huge difference. Most trails skied great, and the snow piling up at the end of the day meant good things for the next.
The first of three days at the river followed a thaw and a hard freeze, and conditions were classic East Coast icy.
But a dicey day here beats not skiing at all!
