Steve, you didn't miss much -- conditions were about the worst I've ever seen. Everything had a shiny glaze of ice. Both Noodler and I concurred that Triple Zero was about the worst run either of us had taken all season, if not ever -- glazed ice mixed with pockets of wind-loaded snow. We kept hitting the hard boiler-plate ice and then diving into the soft "grabby" snow -- almost impossible to get any rhythm going. Storm King was closed in the morning, so didn't get to try out Spaulding Bowl. Halllelujah was in okay shape. The wind kicked up from time to time ferociously -- literally couldn't see past our ski tips at times. The saving grace, as always, was Union Bowl -- superb soft snow all the way. We had a short day.
By contrast, Mary Jane was great today. Especially Parsenn Bowl (Fireberry Glade, Johnstone Junction) -- ankle-deep untracked stuff.
