2020/2021 Ski Days 3-15

Barred Owl at Berkshire East

It was a rough season, mostly spent in-state. The lines at WaWa were awful, so I ventured out to Berkshire East, which is a great little place. NH and ME opened up late in the season, so I got to hit Loon, Cannon, and Sunday River.

2020/2021 Ski Day 2: Wachusett

My first “real” day of skiing was in-state, at good old WaWa. It’s possible that COVID-19 travel restrictions may mean I don’t ski a single day outside of Massachusetts. I expect to become acquainted with the likes of Berkshire East and Jiminy Peak before too long.

Thanks to COVID-19, skiing at WaWa is a time-restricted, by-reservation-only affair. I bought my slot for the day’s early session, 7:30 to 11:45. Conditions were about what one should expect for an early season day on all-manufactured snow. By about 9:30 what little powder there had been in the middle of the trail was gone, and I kept to the sides, where it had been shoved.
