Gore Mountain: 03/27/2010

It was firm and fast today. But strong sun, grooming and light skier traffic made the ski surfaces reasonably good. Pulling in at 9 am this morning temps were in the low 20s -- cold, but hardly brutal. We did our mandatory Wild Air warm up run and headed up top.

Mount Snow, VT: 03/18 and 03/19/2010

Ten of us get together each year for a couple days of skiing at a ski area in Vermont. This year’s destination was Mount Snow, an area I had never been to before. I had expected to find mostly groomed cruisers. While Mount Snow has those, happily I also found some really great tree skiing, bumps and some challenging black diamonds on the mountain’s North side. Great snow and weather to boot.

Gore Mountain: 03/13/2010

Gray but dry, good coverage, frozen surfaces

Most families would have stayed home today, but we've gone up to Gore every weekend this winter. Today was forecast to be dry with temperatures in the low 40s, but driving up through showers this morning had us second-guessing our plans. It did dry out by the time we reached Gore, and stayed that way all day.
