Yesterday at Stratton was the best Spring skiing day so far this season - a 10 on a scale of 1-10. The weather was perfect - mid 60s, partly cloudy with a light, balmy breeze. The temps were warm enough to soften even the iciest parts of the slopes. I can't think of a better way to spend a Spring day than slashing through the slushy snow and bumps in my shorts.
There was a good crowd on the slopes. Both parking lots 1 and 2 were nearly full by 9:00 AM. Fortunately, the lift lines were very short.
I spent the first part of the day skiing the runs off the American Express lift with my family and friend, Joel. After the snow got wet and heavy at mid-day on the lower part of the mountain, I spent the rest of the day skiing the big, slushy bumps on Slalom Glade, World Cup and the left side of Upper Standard. I also skied some runs with my daughter off of the Snow Bowl lift - Mikes Way, Janeway Junction and Upper East Meadow.
