Today was great...sorry I didn't know it was Newman's birthday...Hope it was a great one, the skiing had to be. I think the saddest part of today(not the part of being the last day) is we couldn't get to the goods on the darkside. Rumor and Lies were really good today but I never skied Open Pit or Chati yesterday and they were perhaps better, earlier at least, because some things needed to soften early. I liked the closer bumps on Lies to the spaced out Rumor but more people skied Rumor early so that was the better of the two today. I really liked Open Pit the best today until a Shaman spoke to me and told me to go to the Top of a Ridge, what a cool way to shut down my Gore (lift served) season. There is so much snow still up there I will be hiking it in the not too distant further. Thank you Gore for a great season...In the off season please learn your new snowmaking technology and clear that blowdown in Skibowl Glades...I wonder if that sold any more Ski Bowl Village propertiesI would help with the latter...Come on Whiteface One More Week!
