First day of spring at Stowe

Mostly nice day, though it clouded up mid-day. We got there at 7:30 for almost first chair. It never dropped below freezing overnight, so the snow was fairly soft right from the start. We hit a couple blues off the quad, which were in nice shape, then decided to get over to Nosedive, then Liftline. By 8:30 the snow was already a lot softer, and we went over to the gondola. Perry Merrill was fun but not groomed well up top. Bare spots starting to show through. By 9:30 - 10:00 the crowds had picked up a lot and it was getting pretty messy, but actually kinda fun. I like the surfy feeling of carving hard turns through the chop, but it can drain you fast!

We decided to go back to the quad but were amazed at the crowds. This is late March! It was 70 degrees in CT-MA-NY...what the hell were all these people doing here!? Oh well...headed over to Spruce Peak instead, where there was bare dirt all over the place, and by now pretty well bumped up. Still, it was fun, got some good fast runs in. But if you're going, better get there soon. The snow took a beating after week of very warm weather. They say it might actually snow tonight...we'll see in the morning. Otherwise, sad to say it's probably our last trip of the season.

I like that surfy feeling a lot as well but you're sure right about it being draining! My legs still feel it somewhat three days after snowboarding at Wildcat in those conditions. Even just going straight down places considerable strain on one's legs.
