It looked alot better in the pics then it really was.

Typical manmade snow conditions plus there was an inversion which made it interesting.

It was all ungroomed so we only skied from 9-12:30 because our legs were getting pretty tired.

The conditions ranged from hard crust, soft manmade, slush, and some other variations.

It definately made for an interesting first day out but I was glad just to get out on some snow.

I am debating going up again this weekend because they are suppose to open a few trails on Barker Mountain but I am worried that it will be a zoo tomorrow.

I might give my back a rest and head up for Sunday.

Nice pics!

Did you ski on your M11's?

How did they treat you on the early season crud/slush/crust?

I actually broke in the new 1080s and was practicing catching 6 inches of air and crashing.



I might bust out the Atomics this weekend depending on if they groom or not.

Nothing like first turns. The snow looked better than described. I was fortunate I got to ski for two days last week. Felt pretty good afterwards, took a long flight home and must have stiffened up on the plane. Calves were as tight as piano wire when I got home. I enjoyed looking at the pictures Thanks.

I did some K-Mart shopping on Tuesday's opening day (great snow, bad vis, no lines) and Veteran's Day (good snow, great vis, short lines), but am thinking that will be insane this weekend.
Sunday River on Sunday seems like the call for the Boston ASC passholder set. (Though I'm not looking forward that solo roundtrip drive, ugh...)

1080 performance on drek?

Scalce;

What did you you think of the Salomon 1080's on Sunday River's mixed bag?

Did they float over the slush? What happened when you hit the re-freeze spots?

It seems like you hit a day where you needed a 64mm waisted carver, a mid-fat and a Full Fattie all on the same run.

I really thought that it was going to be rough going out on the first day with an 80 waist ski. When I hit the hard stuff I had to feather the edges at speed but it would still grab.

I was very surprised how well it did in all the conditions. It obviously can not be skied at high speed but it held alot better then I expected.

By the end of the day me and my wife were looking for hits to catch air and that is really a first for both of us.

I was a little worried that the ski would be too soft for me but I really enjoyed it and can't wait to hit some soft bumps and tree runs on them.

I think I am going to have SkiDoc put a 1 and 3 bevel on them to make them grab alittle better on hardpack.

Ha! I'm the guy in the orange to the left of the lift line in the 4th LR pic. Thursday was a great day.

Nice photos. My husband and I were there yesterday and today. Early this morning was very nice. It was a little colder. Beautiful day. I thought the conditions were great for manmade snow so early.
