Well, seems that overnight the snow changed from that super fine, crystalline snow to nice big fluffy flakes of dry POW. Looked like about 3 inches on the car this morning at 3:30am. (...I hate hotel rooms. Don't sleep worth a damn!)
Yesterday I hit the resort by 8:40 to get first chair @ 9am, only to find they had things running way early to accommodate some fucking NASTAR ski racers and the groomers were already pretty tore up by then.
Hopefully today, I will be the one laying down first tracks!
Trapper,.. did you recover enough to make it out to Crystal? If so, How was it. Looks like the big dump that was forecast for up this way stayed lower down in that region instead. That extra 8-12 inches they were calling for thur. thru sat. just sort of evaporated! (....seems even PK & Holly got a bigger accumulation of snow over the weekend than Highlands did!)
Up side is, it's been so friggin' cold during the days that the snow stayed really good. Hasn't been warming to slush during the day and freezing solid overnight. so even once it's been chopped to shit, It's still decent snow!
One side note; I gotta get me some better base layers for this kind of bitter wind & cold. Between the extra 20 lbs I' put on since last season and all the extra layers I had to wear,.. I could barely bend my fat ass over to strap in! LOL! The true bitch kitty is that the extra 20 lbs of blubber didn't keep me any warmer either. Just sweatier! Haha ha!
Anyway, hope everyone gets to Enjoy some sunday shredding!
