today, or....Today (A-Basin) marked 48 months in a row for my Turns All Year, so I am not sure if it counts as the last day of last season, the first day of this season, or BOTH! (I am inclined to think of it as the latter, if that isn't cheating). The Basin had gorgeous weather today- sunny, upper 40's not a bit of wind, and, unfortunately, hordes of teenage boarders. I had assumed that on a weekday it would be empty, but it must be some sort of school vacation day. Nevertheless, the single lines were not very long and they tended to congregate in the park, so the 2 runs that were open weren't too congested, so I really have nothing to complain about. Snow surface was mostly pretty firm. I left about 2:45 and it was so nice when I got home I went out for a quick 20 mile bike ride! It isn't too often that I can do both in one day.
