Greek Peak is opening tomorrow, Dec 1st. Looks like they're kicking off with Illiad instead of Elysian Fields, as they normally do. Anyone going to be there? Camp? Big D? PDQ? I think I'll be kicking off my season tomorrow, but I'm not sure where. I've got early season vouchers to Gore and Windham. I was leaning towards Windham since I let my Warren Miller vouchers for them go unused the past two seasons. Not sure Gore is worth the trip at this time, though I'm sure they have the most to offer of the three. Got a BOGO for Kmart as well. They may be the best bet, if it isn't too zooy, probably will be. Maybe I'll just go to Greek, pick up my pass, and make a few turns. It could be they're last opening day.
John was the first person I saw there at 7:40. The office was locked, and the ticket booth windows were shuttered. I had a cup o joe at the Taverna and lost track of John. Made some turns with Big D, Camo John, and horn honkin Walt, of the Triple Cities Ski Club, about ten laps, that was plenty. The "snow" wasn't bad, turned the consistency of Italian ice by ten. Yeah, don't think I'd pay $45 for it. Felt great to be sliding again! Bring it this year Ullr, you had most of last year off.
