Well, that happened quick. The leaves are still on the trees and ski season is here. In our first year as Killington passholders, we couldn't pass up the chance to ski on Day One of the ski season.

Whiteface closing day: Cinqo de Mayo 05/05/2018

I hinted in my April 21 report that Whiteface was hoping for a shot at Cinqo de Mayo skiing. When the official announcement came a few days before the weekend, there was no doubt we'd be heading up for their latest ever closing date.

Some skiers spend the winter chasing powder days, or more accurately, powder hours. Others live for the soft snow, blue sky and longer days of spring. If you're a spring guy, last weekend brought some of the best skiing of the season, with Whiteface serving up some of the best terrain in the east.

Coincidentally there have been several posts in the ski blogosphere recently with the theme of "it's the skiers I'm with that make the day great." Whiteface on the day after Easter was exactly that kind of day for our family. We had a great crew of 10 - our usual Saratoga Skier team of 4, another 2 kids whose dad is injured for the season, and our friends the Albas.
