On Tuesday, my son and I skied Whiteface for the first time ever. What a great time we had as conditions were really good with mild temps (30-35), no wind, a light snow fall and soft snow all over. We will definitely be back in future years.
Here's my Good, Bad, and the Ugly:
The Good, No Make that Great: The ski conditions and what a great time we had. We stuck to the blues with a few blacks in there and every run was fun. The only small disappointing part was when we went to the Top Station and were socked in by clouds and fog and missed out on any great views from up there. The Bear Crossing made us chuckle too but how does one actually get there?
The Bad - there was no bad
The Ugly - At the Mid-Station Lodge, there was the most disgusting collection of dead flies on the window sills...a hundred, probably more In hindsight, I should have taken a picture and sent it to Gov Cuomo with a note telling him he needs to spend taxpayers $$$$ on cleaning this up before his other boondoggle ideas
ps. I'd post some pictures but for some reason, most of my pictures posted on nyskiblog come out with the wrong orientation despite my best intentions.
Ha good point on the flys
We just get used to them but if a health dept inspector were to somehow show up on skis that can't be legit for a food service op. It's decidedly not world class and joins the litany of things Orda should should money on before a mountain coaster or zip line.
The photo orientation thing is Google's way of giving the finger to Apple
