Oh, no!!! There was a strange voice on the snow phone tonight! But, at least this time they mentioned the conditions. The last faux-Wes failed to do so. For those of us who tend to skip loose granular days after crappy weather, this was annoying. Nothing like guessing about conditions and showing up to find that you will be skiing on ice cubes. :P
You're not kidding!!!! Today was great! They opened Illiad. I wasn't sure how it would be, but it was really nice!!
I lucked out and rode up with some off duty instructors a couple of times. On the first ride up, we talked about skis. They happened to be at the bottom when I came off of Illiad, and one of them gave me some pointers on my technique. How nice is that????
I went and skied for a couple hours. It was fine considering the rain this week. Firm and crunchy and fast, some compressions to watch for, an occasional spot of groomer tread boilerplate. It wasn’t great and it wasn’t terrible. Very light crowd. If it’s packed tomorrow I’d avoid.
