Just back from the Knob, a few brief words. Thanks to all the Bears and DCSkiers for making this the largest Mid-Atlantic gathering to date. Special thanks, and I can't thank enough, to Jamesj. Jim took it upon himself to organize the slope side house and really put himself out to host this event. Jim made sure introductions were made and lead the tour for many of the first timers and as noted above, made sure we were well feed. Thanks Jim.
Blue Knob was in its typical state, you had to pick your line carefully to avoid the the ice but that's the charm and challenge. Extrovert was more as it's nasty self then when I last skied her. Then she was soft as velvet but the melt down and rain from a few weeks back brought out the bullet proof bumps and rocky patches. I think those that skied Ex would agrees she wears her diamond honestly.
I had a great time. The compadres made the gathering as our crowd is just an off the chart great bunch. You guys are just fun to ski with and really inspire me to kick it to the next level.
A special shout out to Pierre who took a nasty fall about the same location I took mine in Stembogan Bowl. I hope the ribs aren't crack, Pierre, and you get back on the boards soon.
