Pico - Feb/March - Redemption

The original idea for this edit, was about all those skiers and riders like ourselves, who are weekend warriors. Unless it is snowing on a Friday or Saturday night, we miss out on those special powder days. This season has been rough. Remember MLK weekend? How about that dust on crust during midwinter break after 75 degrees in mid-February? We did get lucky this year with Santa's Gifts on Christmas Day, but we will never forget the cold that week.

Well March has come in with a Bang! Here is a little stoke for the "Weekend Warriors", as we all head up North for our Powder Fix.

Redemption

The ski season has been far from exceptional.
Not knowing what each day will bring,

We still pursue our passion for skiing.
We dream of snow and Winter's return.

Waiting, Wishing

Seeing the news, we realize these storms are dangerous,
But see a silver lining.

Despite are better judgement,

We make a disappointing failed attempt.

With frustration we return to work,
To only leave the next day.

Arriving at the mountain,
We are excited at what the days will bring.

Knowing many of our friends are here,
We know these will be exciting times.

And then “it” happened.
It started to snow and it hasn't stopped.

Winter has had its…...
Redemption.

Re: Pico - Feb/March - Redemption

I've been lucky this month as at times I can capitalize on Thursday snow with a Friday off.  With the season being objectively pretty average or maybe below, I been luck to score 5 or 6 primo days which is probably above average for me.

Thanks for posting Ray, will watch later when I can turn up the sound.

Do you know if they are New Yorkers?

I went to check out Pico, instead of Killington, a few years ago because of Alba Adventures.  I was on my way up to Sugarbush and MRG.  Far more fun to spend a day skiing at a smaller mountain like Pico than trying to figure out multiple peaks at K-ton.  Plus I knew the trees would be accessible skiing solo.  Of course, it helped that I lucked out and was skiing mid-week a day or two after a powder storm.

I have no clue - it came in from our webmail form with no email.
