One squirrel at Mohawk and lots of other near misses with squirrels at various resorts . A pheasant (big dark brown bird, it was all kind of a blur) hit my helmet at Pico.
I have been to Utah, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming...in the off season. For one reason or another winter trips out West have never materialized. My trip to California in...
Really not sure how you made it through such an awful day! Seriously, nice report and congrats on the western migration
MRG--I say this every year. Maybe this will be the year it actually happens.
Hoping to ski out west for the first time, too.
I lived in Oregon for a summer 20 years ago. I've been itching to move there ever since. Never got to ski because I was unaware of Summer skiing on Mt Hood or that Bachelor is usually open through...
Pics are hilarious, thanks for sharing
Nice, I bet the snow had time to drain over night. Their base is deep on the man made trails. As long as there are no blowtorch days, they could probably go 2 more weekends. I haven't seen any...
Nice report. Good thing you didn't turn your car around!
Where: Belleayre Ski Center
When: Saturday April 5, 2014
Conditions: Top: refrozen corn, frozen granular, death cookies. Middle: Soft buttery turns to heavy wet snow. Bottom: Slush. The...
Looks pretty good! Sounds like a nice day.
Bumps go to Fiddler. That would be a heck of a nice bump run if it went top to bottom.
I just open all of the vents which keeps it comfortable. Although, it's so tempting to just lose it altogether. I love the feel of the rushing air.
Where: Ski Butternut, MA
When: April 2, 2014 Afternoon
Conditions: 60 degrees, mostly sunny--corn, mash potatoes, slush and water skiing
I love days like this. Nearly empty slopes, but the...
Butternut i n Mass is still open thru 4/6
Oh, sure, rub it in. :p
Yeah, I didn't feel up to UGK and A Slope, I do regret not skiing Summit Glades, though. Maybe someone else can chime in on comparisons with Killington trails, haven't been to Kton since 1992 so my...
Nice report! My legs hurt just reading it :)
I've never heard Paradise described quite this way, very refreshing.
While I was on the lift I watched a pheasant nearly glide into a skier. Later in the day, one hobbled right in my path. Thought I expanded on that when I wrote the report last night, oops. That's...
The ones left on the ground were used as kindling in the fire pit.
Love the little hills making a comeback. "Don't know what you've got 'til it's gone."
Easily worth a multi-day trip, lots to explore. Stay longer and explore some of the other Adirondack mountains, too!
I was on Little Pico at the end of the day and didn't stop to take pictures. The really steep part of it is short--you can kind of see it in the parking lot picture but the steepness isn't evident....
Two more pics, just because:
Early in the day at the top:
Around noon, the clouds cleared, sun was out, it was awesome
