A great irony of all the ego battles that took place here last couple of days about who is the better skier, who is a 'poser' and etc . . . is that if you look at the timing of the posts, it seems nobody was actually getting in any skiing!

Well, the skiing was sweet again today - I hope the arguments were just as much fun!

Fun slush day today, and totally empty slopes. How about you? Do I remember that you were going to be backcountry today?

Todd, I did a ski overnight in Desolation Wilderness (a remote area near tahoe). We've been having a perfect freeze/thaw cycle and everything has corned up nicely -- nothing but blue sky and 60 degree short sleeve skiing.

Yeah, there's the phrase, "someone's off their meds", I think "off their skis" has the same connotation!

I was.
We're getting too close to done in the east, though.

Hey - I got 4 8-hour days of skiing over Easter in non-stop brilliant sunshine & didn't log on once. I missed all the fun here, but I know who had the better time...

Where were you, Frances?

I spent Easter checking out assorted European webcams.

A masochistic business - you definitely had a better time!

Verbier. Couldn't really ski below Ruinettes but snow was good high up although very busy (quieter in other bits of the 4 valleys).

As we aren't very good skiers we can have a good time without needing lots of good off-piste available. My triumph for the weekend was to ski every open run in Verbier & Savoleyres - first time I've done that without missing out the blacks*.

View from top of Mont-Fort is incredible - highly recommended whether or not you enjoy the mogul field on the way down.

*if you know Verbier you'll realise this isn't quite as good as it might be because they've reclassified some of the harder blacks as 'off-piste itineries' so I don't have to include them in the list...

Posting from babysitting zone. It was payback time for all the weekends I took off to go skiing.

I must have missed those threads because I was skiing all weekend and Fri. and had to get caught up at work because I was skiing Fri. Back to the mountain on Wed. - work is highly overrated.

Yep - well, we all must work. But if you *really* love to ski you will find ways of arranging your life/work in ways that allow skiing at the best times (i.e. away from weekends and holidays). And often!

The greatest things in life usually require some sacrifice.
