Spring Skiing

Mountain High
March 10, 2017

< < previous | next > >

All the warning signs pointed to this being a lousy day to ski: temperatures in the 60s, patches of brown earth visible on the ski cams, a late start that got us into the parking lot well after noon.

But it was just the opposite: the crowds stayed away and we had a mountain of snow almost all to ourselves. Skiied right onto the lift every time, and burned through all of Em's remaining points for the season in a long afternoon of fun runs on only slightly slushy snow.

The whole day cost us about $15, for my rented helmet and poles. Plus a few dollars for a celebratory beer by the firepit at the end of the day.
