Come on guys/gals:
We're "barfing bears"
. Where is our spirit?
Saturday, went skiing at an area with only 600 vertical (3.5 hours to get there and considered myself lucky that there was skiing available). I was short changed by about a half, since the only slopes of interest were reached by down loading half-way up (Squirel Cage and the Face, for those of you who have skiied Wisp in Western Maryland). Had to walk across 15 feet of mud to get to the Face, which actually had the most snow cover, maybe because one had to walk across mud and also that it was steep, mogully and was a 'brown diamond'. Coverage on Squirel Cage was really scratchy and I was glad that I had my rock/mud skis on. Hey, but a "bad day of skiing sure beats ....". Anyway, drew from the "pleasure" corner and had a lot of fun.
Sunday, actually was able to ski 1000 vertical, top to bottom at a W.Va ski area Timberline. Heavy snow, but as Barnes says: There are only two kinds of snow. That which is good to ski on and that which makes you ski good (according to my friend and classmate KevinF. My apologies to both of you if I got the quote wrong). Had a great time as well. Really happy that I went skiing. I would have been un-"Bearable"
this week, if I hadn't gotten my "FIX" in over the weekend.
More good news. Happy days are here again. This week the mid-Atlantic states will be in the mid 20s at night, so I expect some heavy duty snow making from the local areas this week and into next. If we are getting 20s at night, you people up north and in the middle of the country should be in even better shape. Come on guys/gals, keep your chin up and smile
Bash on, regardless
ps: thanks for the great pic KB. Heard and read a lot about the 6 passenger lift at Boyne. Never saw a picture of it though. Also, the slope looks "interesting".
