Another great weekend.  Congrats to little C!  My 6 year old was begging to ski chair 2 but I wasn't ready, but thought it was a good sign.

Twas knee+ deep in the right places
Slashes in the shade continued to powder faces
Rode right on 2 thanks to the exceptional grooming
Snow on the far side was perfect for afternoon 'shrooming

Rocks showing up in some key spots a bit early, but still plenty of fun  elsewhere up there.

BTW I really enjoyed the country club (on a dead day) crowd and muted clothing colors in comparison  to what will happen  once the fair resort  to  the south closes for the season ;-)

What, the touring crowd dresses too brightly for your taste?

Easter's on the calendar but everything after that is TBD

The bright spanking new Obermeyer gear does help  with visibility on  flat light days, if you ski close enough to them to see the light reflected from their clothing on the snow...

Please do!! And I will too the next time I see him. Super strong and smooth on top, I was so pumped. And then looked strong down Low I, comments by a number of coaches around me on his bump technique. 8th place rocks!!! That was a strong field.

No numeric rating but yesterday afternoon  was pretty fun. Moody cloudy spring afternoons with some light sprinkles are growing on me. The low angle stretches never got grabby and everything was soft or at minimum carvable (i.e. some firm bits on  upper I inbetween piles of loose snow were very edgeable).  There's still plenty of  terrain that  has not yet consolidated from lack of "skier grooming" but also plenty that is in very nice skiing shape.

Sunny Sunday fun, nice contrast to cold early March. Cover low for end of March, that is for sure.  Bonus Silver Fir was grab-olicious.

Rained. Snow sucked. Vis was terrible. Nash was rocky. Jerrys were on course. More terrain was closed than open. Can't wait to do it all again tomorrow Grin

seriously mediocre but much was accomplished

a re-cap for the past week include much variation in conditions and mood.
we skied out the midweek run of mild weather at acre/Sliver.
it was good training for the weekend that included low expectations which were exceeded by the relatively dry air, though the snow was classic maritime.
9:30 up Padded Seats with lilC for an *oversnowed* bonding lap,
Smiley went well.
