All that snow looks pretty good. Hope there’s more on the way

They always have the best looking snow.

"Like hey 25cms fell this afternoon when we weren't looking."  I guess we'll have to head out for some nordic bliss.

Meanwhile down here we're like... "Skiology is calling for two inches at Windham!"

The chair is beautiful and evil at the same time. It taunts me!

Ha, ha, I wondered if anyone would notice that. That is the most-used container of fasteners that I possess. Deck screws have many purposes beyond the deck.

Ok. It’s intervention time.  Going to skip out of work early today to go for a ski - hopefully with SBR, if he’s home.  You can guess what needs to be said and done..  
Voile Love needs to happen..

Ha ha, true, I guess we are a bit casual about it. That's life in the Lake Effect Zone. And we can lose it all in the blink of an eye.

Maybe the chair is your personal Holy Grail, all set to taunt you one more time:

Today's ski was a repeat of yesterday, except that TD joined in and I broke out the big boy skis. Check out eh Charger Love thread for wax nerd details.

Once we reached Secret Hill and TD observed that there was significantly less snow there than my driveway picture suggested, he actually agreed that maybe the Hoks weren't such a bad choice on the earlier forays. Ha.

I had camera focus issues, plus it was pretty gloomy, so the shots aren't the greatest. But, hey, it is mid-December and we are skiing thin pow.

TD wisely takes a conservative line on Secret Hill:



Over to Bonk Hill, where there are fewer rocks underneath:



The dude is just a blur in the woods:



SBR gives today a thumbs-up:

Couple pics of SBR, one on the trek from Secret to Bonk, the other on the long climb back up from the beaver ponds at the bottom of Bonk hill.




And actually, although I could understand SBR’s use of the kinder-skis, (sorry, Hoks), no way I’d want to use them myself.  I need every bit of my 191 Charger BCs to hold my fat ass up out of the low tide sharkey waters..  er, snow..  😎
