Diagonal is better than horozontal. Fun is what you make of it.

Wow. I don't know what to say. Cloudmont.. wow. Never heard of it, and yet for some strange reason I feel compelled to try to take a trip there just to say I skied in Alabama.

I think Silverton should be nominated for "best village".

I have been there three times making the drive up from Birmingham when the need to get a fix becomes too strong. Fun really is what you make of it. I was there one of their last days on February 29th and skied in a steady rain the whole time on what I would call a 1-14 inch base and had a great time being out on the snow. Lift tickets are not bad either at $20 for a weekend night session and $30 for rentals and a lesson included. The rope tow is a real challenge for the beginners and they don't give them poles unless they pay an extra $5.00 for them since they are such a hassle for them. One time I was walking up with my skis and I got a few, "whoa, check out that guy, he has his own poles and goggles." Then at the base I overheard some college age kids talking about how they had been to some "really big" places up in North Carolina like Sugar Mountain and Ski Beech. I have left after all three of my trips up there feeling like it was worth it to put in those turns.

Dude, at $45 for a weekend ticket, they are more expensive than Mt. Baker...but they do have 2 "pony lifts"!

I know. But I'm still pretty fired up about the whole thing. If you were a season pass holder, you might be as well.
