I hope so too. The visit to the shack and the bluebird day were the high points of the trip. I was glad to see that I could still function at 12,000 ft. The snow made me feel right at home - I'm from PA, remember. The next day I came down with norovirus and we had to abort our trip to Taos right after we arrived. The snow there looked pretty shiny too, so I don't think I missed much. Gotta be better this year.
Jane and I are pretty sure we'll do our trip to New Mexico this season - a long weekend in Santa Fe to visit her family, and then north to Taos or Pagosa-Wolf Creek. We like the vibe at Taos but we're in our 70s and mainly interested in cruising and we certainly don't hike anywhere for turns and the less bumps the better. (I think you can see why I don't post on TGR). The new lift on Kachine would make Taos much more attractive for us IF some of the terrain is going to be...
I had a full ACL allograft. When the doc had the scope inside, he saw the tear and did that too - a little bonus. My tear happened in mid-December at the first ESA at Stowe (I came to every one after that) and the surgery was early February. Back on the bike by April.
Fabienzan, Mine was about 9 years ago, so I was in my early 60s. My meniscus tear was small and in the vascularized red-white area so my doc took one stitch in it and it seems to have done the trick. I was religious with my PT and I think I was back on my road bike on the flat about two months post surgery and then rode all summer. Still riding and skiing in my 70s with no pain. Good luck.
Heavy powder and low viz at Ragged in NH today. First soft snow I've skied all year. Loon or Cannon tmw, depending on wind, Cannon or Wildcat Friday
Heading up to the North Shore of Boston tomorrow to stay with a cousin and do day trips to NH, probably hitting Cannon and Wildcat and one other TBD. Looks I timed this right for once. Maybe this will make up for my trip to New Mexico at the end of February where I got skunked and got sick too - got on one day at a very firm Santa Fe before giving up on Taos. Taking along my old Pocket Rockets.
Thanks. Supposed to be bluebird on Fri, so Wildcat would be nice. Lodging recs at either Cannon or Wildcat?
Thanks. Supposed to snow Wednesday into Thursday. How tough would it be to drive toWildcat from Lincoln area to Wildcat on Fri am if it has been snowing?
We're going to visit some cousins on the north shore of Boston, arriving Tuesday 3/11 and plan to do day trips on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Cannon will be one stop, probably Thursday (it's cheap, a twofer day). Cousin will decide what to do Wednesday, but we may stay up north Thursday nite in Lincoln, so where to go Friday, before we head back to Salem? I'd like to see Wildcat, if only for the views, but how gnarly is it? We're interested in cruising, not bumps or...
