OK, so after a LONG day yesterday I am back home and trying to figure out this whole new site. Anyways... here goes with the TR
I left my house in Malden Ma at 3:45 am yesterday, 1/30. With stops for gas and coffee along the way, I arrived at the mountain right around 8.
Unfortunately my new 183's still had to be scraped from the final wax cycle, so I missed the 8:30 (patrol) tram by a matter of minutes.
No matter, I hustled my ass over to the Bonaventure Quad, and was able to get on the fourth chair up.
There was an inch or two of new fluff sitting on top of 12+ inches from the day before, which hadn't really gotten skied all that much so there were plenty of shin-knee deep fresh turns to be found!
Being my first day on the 183 Bros (full review coming later... to a wiki?) I started on a steep groomer, but then quickly jumped right back into my regular terrain (glades, un-marked woods, steep open trails with exposed rocks, steep, tight chutes, etc.)
I was able to find fresh snow to ski in all day long, and there is definately plenty left for anyone who can get there this weekend!
I DID stop to take a few pictures during one run yesterday, although not many. I was the only one with a camera and didn't pass it around, so there are no shots of me... but:
The tram was packed to capacity all day
We went exploring...
And found exactly what we were looking for!
Our Ski School's Technical Director managed to find a little time to come out and play in the fresh snow too!
