    Here are two pictures of Chute. There was very low light today so the pictures are a bit dark:

    Those must've been first thing in the morning... guns are still on and there are few bumps in the pics. Amazing how much of a difference 6 hours made bumps-wise.

    had a blast today. nice to see everyone either again or for the first time. Skied mostly with austin, jim, greg, zand, powhunter and crazy johhnypoach. Also had the pleasure of watching mattchuck and his friend on their tele's. Super smooth skiers. Spent most of the time on chute. bumps were really fun, not real organized though. Nice lines up top with snow that was a little firmer. the lower you got, the mankier it got. took some nice wipeouts. Chute was basically deserted after lunch. I guess everyone headed back over to the main face. I had my old volkls with me today and it just go to be too much for my legs. damn things are just too heavy. couldnt turn 'em fast enough after my first couple of runs.

    The pictures are from about 10:00am in the morning, and the snowmaking crew was shutting down the guns as we made our way down the trail. I am glad that we got there early enough to see the snow cannon in action on Launch Pad and they put out quite a bit of snow with almost no noise.

    Date(s) Skied: Monday, November 12, 2007, 9:50 am - 3:30 pm

    Resort or Ski Area: Mount Snow, Vermont

    Conditions: Manmade snow, bumps, hardpack. mostly cloudy. Cool, no wind.

    Trip Report: Left the Waterbury area after dropping off the kids around 7:20 am and made it to Snow at 9:50. Saw JimG. skiing as I walked in. Told him I'd meet at the triple in a few.

    Wasn't waiting long before Yooper showed up who I met at Sundown once a few seasons back. Chatted with him for a bit when austin arrived and eventually some others. After a few intros, we were off. Took a top to bottom on Canyon and Standard. A bit of hard pack on Upper Canyon, but smooth manmade the rest of the way. It took me a while to figure out the Cabrawlers; definitely different skiing. We all headed to the meet-up spot to meet the rest of the crew. At one point later in the day, Austin and I were trying to figure out how many people from AZ were there. Here's my best estimate (sorry if I miss anyone):

    Zand
    Greg
    bvibert
    ALLSKIING
    JimG.
    andyzee + Vee
    roark
    mattchuck2 + friend
    Grassi21
    awf170
    2knees
    powhunter + Jonnypoach
    loafer89 + Warren
    180 + family
    skibum9995
    Yooper + daughter
    MrMagic

    So 17 AZers plus friends/family. There was also other Hunter skiers that JimG. knew besides 180 + family. A large group of us hit Chute which was awesome. Sweet manmade snow with fun bumps and whales to play on. some funky lines, but still awesome skiing and a lot more of a challenge than I expected today. Sweet stuff! We banged out a few more Chute runs before lunch, then headed back down the base. I was starting feel a bit more comfortable on my skis.

    We saw the rest of the crew at lunch and pretty quickly headed back up to the top and to Chute. I skied there the rest of the day finishing it off with a run with Zand and Austin. We then cruised it back to the base. finished at 3:30, rolling by 3:50 and home by 6:30. All in all the best first day of skiing I've ever had.

    Good to meet some new AZers in Zand, mattchuck, Austin, skibum and MrMagic. Skiing with the rest of you is always a pleasure. There is definitely some skiing talent on this board. Can't wait for Hunter 12/14 now!

    I encoded all the vid so I'll try to throw something together tonight. The crappy freeware encoder didn't do the best job, but you'll get the idea. I have to invest in a quality app to rip the DVD data to something I can use in WMM.
    I ski double black diamonds.

    ^After that last run on Chute and then back to the base, I went top-to-bottom on Canyon/Standard with no stops. My legs were screaming after that one.

    It was nice to get out so early and especially fun to ski on my birthday.
    Dude I forgot it was your birthday. I know based on today's conditions it must have been a good b-day. I feel extra special seeing that I helped out the b-day boy who lost is stub. See you at Sundown.
