New Record

Was out at Blue today setting a new record ... latest opening in history.    It was below freezing overnight and there was some fresh snow.   Conditions were totally mind blowing for the first couple of hours.  Geat fun on what may be my last "Snow" day this 2012-2013 season.

One more day!

Having the day off,  Sun and temperatures in the mid teens made for some perfect Spring Skiing today.

 Shorts were a must and I was very comfortable.  Going up the life I was enjoying the  sun and warm breeze on my bare legs it reminded me of  lounging by a Caribbean pool with a cool one in my hand.   It was one of those life is good moments.   Skied Memory Lane ,  Smarty Alec, Tranquility , Village Way and even went under the roped and Skied the L Hill ,  nicely groomed and just I bad.   Odds are pretty good thats it for 2013 but I may get lucky and get one more in.

April Fools Day

 Spring 2013 has been good to the Ski season this year.   Today ,  April 1st 2013 Noah, Mason, Blake and myself headed to Blue for some "Spring Skiing".   Mother Nature was up to some April Fools antics with 40-50K Winds and a Temperature of -5C  with a wind chill that had to be in the mid minus teens.  I knew it was going to be winter like  and told the kids to dress for the coldest day and its a good thing they listened.   We parked at the top of Waterfall and were on the hill shortly after 09:00 am.    Groomers were hard at work overnight and I suspect when they parked it Mother Nature took over and dumped 5cm of fresh powdery snow over the corduroy trail.  All  the Runs were open and there were very few folks on the Hill so it was a real treat laying fresh tracks down all morning.    So it was  a great winter day ,  lots of snow and good times  doing non stop up and down Skiing.   Looking forward to some real spring Skiing but the way things are going it could occur in May!
