So, here it is. If you follow me on here, if you know me in real life, then you know I'm obsessed with the year 1619 & how the start of slavery in America has shaped everything in our society. So, in Feb. I pitched to @NYTmag a project to examine, in this 400th year, the legacy.

Almost six months to the day from the first outing of the season: what will probably be the last outing of the season. Like last year, I spent the last day lapping Superstar at Killington.
I arrived early (made the fifth or sixth chair right at the 8:00 opening) and so got a couple of runs in on the groomed terrain. The bumps formed quickly, and, after about an hour, it was hard to believe the trail had been groomed at all.
Superstar wasn’t the only trail open. For those willing to hike a bit, Ovation was also available, and it was worth the walk.
Here’s a YouTube video from the day showing some great bump skiers (disclaimer: I have no idea who the creator is, or why he made such funky aspect ratio choices).
Here’s another giving first person views of the conditions.
