Another fine day at Loon. I drove up through a steady rain, gambling that (a) the rain would let up by mid-morning, and (b) it would keep the crowds away. I won both bets! By the time I was on the snow the rain was just a drizzle, and after three runs (9:30 or so) it was just about done.
In addition to the Gondola, the Seven Brothers and North Peak Quad lifts were turning. Yes: North Peak (and Camp III) are now open.
Atop North Peak — and down to about 100-200 feet below — the precipitation was in the form of snow.
Got my first tracks of the season on Angel Street.
The venison stew was unfortunately not on the menu at Camp III — they’re waiting for the meat…
Maybe next time.
