My last ski day before yesterday was two weeks ago in a foot of fresh snow in Colorado. But it only took a few minutes back on snow to GET MY MIND RIGHT and I had a good day up at Liberty yesterday.
Skied from ~830am-7pm. Everything was open and I got in tons of runs. Sunshine with high temps, maybe close to 30. A little breezy for a while on the front side, but the back was calm pretty much all day. Crowds VERY tolerable, with max wait all day about one minute. Ski-on much of the day on the backside. I wondered where was everybody, but I didn’t ask twice :-) Met Mephitblue and me and three of my adult children skied a few runs with him in the afternoon. Mephitblue is in a cool, month-long developmental instruction program for adults and his group looked fun and fast.
Base area around 830am:
A ton of staff on the mtn early:
Lower Strata on backside, note empty base area on the backside, those are civil war battlefields in the background in the direction of Gettysburg:
This Telepatrol was lapping Upper Eastwind for hours. The bumps were firm, but had a little bit of softmanmade on top and they also got a dusting of natural Friday night at Liberty:
I took this shot of the main frontside chair at exactly 12 noon. I was at the back of the line!
Lower Eastwind after dark:
Hope you’re out getting some this weekend!
