Great day in the Berkshires! Now headed to LOON!
Butternut isn't exactly "big mountain," that's for sure, but we went yesterday and it was damned near perfect...now if it was only twice the vert! Mostly bluebird day, NO PEOPLE with most runs all to yourself, perfect packed powder was FAST. And with mid-week tix at just $25 it was tough to beat.
We were supposed to drive up to Loon tomorrow, but because of the massive killer storm moving in we're leaving tonight and trying to beat the worst of it. Probably won't arrive until after 10:00 pm...but ski club discount is offering $35 tix, even through the holiday weekend. Maybe we'll get to ride tomorrow if it's not too crazy. At that price, just a handful of runs will be a nice way to start the long weekend. If not, oh well -- snowed in with my sweetie in a nice little New Hampshire inn for an early Valentine's Day. Last I heard Loon was in the 12-18" snow prediction. This could be epic!
