It started snowing when we did our first chair 22 lap around 9am, but didn't really start dumping until about 11. It's been piling up ever since. I cleaned the car off to go to a friends for dinner, and between 6 and 9 it snowed another 5 inches.

I have a pair of fat powder skis waiting in the garage. But I might not be able to wait until Saturday . . . . I may have to go out for a couple of hours Friday morning.

I finally timed a ski vacation right. Last year, I missed the big storms in SLC by a week and had 70 degrees and mashed potatoes. We're flying into SLC Saturday and it looks to be shaping up nicely.

I'll say. My level 3 Clinic went right through this storm. We skied vertigo alley (actually under hangman's) Wednesday. 20-30 Ft Vis at best and blowing snow.

Wednesday after skiing, Thursday morning, Thursday after skiing and Thursday night after dinner were interesting trying to move my van. The build up of snow in just an hour or 2 was often an adventure. 2-3ft piles of snow in front of the van to get to the "plowed" road.

Friday morning, Bluebird day! Hangman's early afternoon was way cool. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

I just have to say that Baldy kicked some serious ass this past weekend. Haven't seen it so nice in too long a time.

(pictures in july* , when i post the pics i'll have taken o'er the 03/04 season.)

*they won't be the world's finest, but they'll be nice reminder of snow come mid-summer.

We haven't had a lick of measurable moisture fall from the sky here in Southern Vermont since the end of January.

Ya'll have fun while we ski on ice (yes, it's ICE........I can see FISH under it. )

Hey Bonni! Enjoy your ice while we enjoy our dirt. [img]tongue.gif[/img]
