Arrived in the dark Friday night, cranked a fire and headed out to check the snow.
Still haven't put the MTB in winter storage so space is tight inside.
Up early and over to the mountain. Often I seem to share first gondi with the friendly (but maybe shy?) woman in the green coat. Seems like we both head for Sunway when there is fresh cord, so I pulled up quick to get a shot of her.
Plan was to connect with Square Eddy and to do that I should have waited at the bottom. BUT, I didn't. Off to the top.
Nice morning. Hawkeye was scratchy so I lapped Headwaters which was fantastic. Some sweet fresh and untracked down skiers right. I kept lapping it hoping for a shot at Open Pit. I dig get one on the third time back and repeated it for another. Funky chalk whales could be a name for a band.
The new summit lodge was nice.
Eventually I came back down to find Eddy working with NYSEF. He finished drilling his gates and then we made some turns.
In the afternoon I headed back to the cabin to lay tracks on all our trails, and then headed out to Square Eddy's Casey Mountain Camp for a fantastic meal.
Sunday I got a super early start and skied with Freeheeln and eventually tBatt. Even thought it snowed all day on Saturday I thought the skiing was better on Sunday...
tBatt... well I was stunned. 10 days on tele and he looks good to me.
After I hit the road around 1, they dropped the rope on Lies. Who got it?

Look at the rear leg of the experienced tele skiers, then look at the rear leg for tbatt.
Ted, get that rear shin a bit more parallel to the ground, separate the knees a little (fore/aft), and sink down into a stronger tele stance. This will have the natural effect of putting more weight on that rear foot without you having to stomp on it.
