Started the trip to Whitefish at the Everett Train Station in Everett, Washington. Wasn't terribly happy with the train station - apparently it is also the Greyhound bus stop as well as home to many social services and it seemed like a lot of people were "hanging out". The train was on time and it was uneventful traveling to Whitefish. Crowd on the train was fine. Most seemed to be going to Wenatchee and the train was pretty empty going to Whitefish.
Arrived in Whitefish at 7:26 AM right on schedule. Head to the hosts home for a little while and then headed with the host up to the mountain. Had a good day of skiing on Thursday. A little cloudy in the morning and then turned to 100% visibility. Groomer day - everything off piste appeared to be rock hard. Groomers did their best the night before but it looked a bit challenging because I don't think the temperatures got cold enough to setup well.
Skiied the major runs on the front side (Inspiration, Big Ravine, Toni Matt, Moe Momentum aka North Bowl). Did pop over to the backside to try some on Chair 7, as well as had to try out the new Flower Point Chair (aka Chair 11) and T-Bar 2 since it was running. Forgotten how challenging the T-bar was and wasn't sure I enjoyed riding up on the t-bar very well although I'm sure I'd get used to it over time.
Started to get a bit tired from lack of sleep the night before about halfway through the day and caught myself dozing off on the chair on the ride up. Not good. Called it a day at 3:30.
Fun day overall.
