09/02/2018, Going For a Ride on Heliotrope
« on: 09/02/18, 11:29 PM »

There are not many options left for this time of year, but it seems like conditions are slowly starting to improve on this part of the mountain minus the ice for the last 100 or so vertical feet. Once off the Hogsback, I only saw two other hikers and that was it. I thought for sure being it is Labor Day weekend, I would have seen at least a couple of skiers/riders. Hopefully, there will not be much more melting and that conditions on the remaining snow will continue to become more smooth.

I have had more satisfying ski moments skiing this hillside this year alone than ALL the times I have skied at any resort the past 35 years! Conditions were so good, I had to make a revisit again yesterday. As long as we do not have a major heat wave, Heliotrope should be sufficient to provide for early October turns. The effort will yield about 800-900 vertical feet per lap.

I've been fighting a cold, but if I get over it I'll try to make it up this weekend.

If you don't do it this year, you'll be one year older when you don't do it next year.
