Timberline ski area in Canaan Valley West Virginia held their very fun Snowy Luau spring ski festival over this past weekend. It is one of the best such events in the mid-Atlantic. I didn't make it on Saturday, the biggest party day/night, but I got out there for a full day of skiing Sunday. Nice day, fun spring conditions, all trails still open, no liftlines. Skied and picnicked with a bunch of folks who are forum members here and at DCSki.com
Spring skiing is the reward we avid types give to ourselves. All the crowds from mid-season and the Holidays are gone, mild picnic weather, corn snow surfaces, and soft bumps prevail for us to savor among ourselves. Sunday was kind of bittersweet knowing it was my last ski day of the season, but it was a nice one to impart sweet memories until next winter!
