Default Seymour Season Started!

Seymour opened yesterday (Friday), and I went up for my first snowboarding session of the season.

The snow is surprisingly good quality, given the shitty late beginning with all the rain and high temps and such. I guess the dumps this week were good and cold enough to give us the good stuff. No mush, no snowcrete, and none of that scritchy sound you get sometimes when the snow's been compressed one too many times.

And the new Mystery chair is fantastic Although it did stop several times today, I'm not sure if that's because of mechanical issues or because someone fell getting off. Sure does cut down lift and wait times.

Lodge chair is not open, and Pete's Run is not open. I think the Brockton chair was open for part of the day, but I didn't go there.

The website says they'll be opening for night skiing on Monday.

I told my kids, "Someday, you'll have kids of your own." One of them said, "So will you."
