Went up to maine on friday trying to avoid what looked to be bac conditions at Stowe. turns out I did not avoid bad conditions at stowe...its was quite good there as well...

so maybe stowe did not suck.....but neither did Saddleback.
saddleback is about 3:30 hours from stowe. Which is pretty damn far to get a ski area but it could be worse.
saddleback received 5 inches of really surfy graupel/snow by saturday morning. if you skied the right line it skied bottomless if you did not ski the right line it was a free massage from the rain crust.

Qcanoe son tristian finds some sweet snow in the very expansive Casablanca glade.
Qcanoe played guide for us, he also SL skis pretty nicely. Also check out his ski they support equality!

Going into sunday another 2-3 inches of cream cheese fell out of the sky. Sun came out to soften the crust underneath and then there was persistent graupel thoughout the day. sunday had the quieter turn for sure.

saddleback's very nice baselodge, might not be spruce camp but its a sweet little lodge and after seeing the crappiest base lodge I have ever seen at Wolf Creek this year i will not longer take this for granted...
