After reading about the snow that fell in North Carolina on Sunday and the low temperatures expected Monday, I decided to drive up from Atlanta to the Cataloochee ski area (actually just one run) on Monday for some tuning up. This is the first time I have skied in the East. Upon arrival at approximately 8:00 a.m., the thermometer read -4 F. Needless to say, the area was fairly deserted. While my expectations were low, I had a great time and my freshly waxed and sharpened Volkl 6*'s performed well. Although there is really only one run, the terrain is varied with some fairly large bumps to make things interesting (and the "No Jumps" signs made great racing gates). It boils down to this: it was a beautiful sunny day and I was skiing.
