    Sugarbush May 3

    Cloudy and 50 as we left Killington for the drive to Sugarbush. Route 100 is always fun with little traffic and great passing zones.

    As we pulled in the access road it was obvious that they lost a lot in 2 weeks. They could not open the top even with a little help.

    Steins was the run with the Valley House double. I forgot how long that walk is up to the VH lodge. Steins had large soft bumps expcept for a 100 yard patch of brown snow. We hammered it for 3 hours before the long drive and sore knees sent us packing. As we left, the Meatheads were just heading out.

    We met Win at the bottom of the chair where he was scanning passes and paying attention to his customers.



    Hats off to Win for ending the season with bumps and a comitment to spring skiing.

    Nice TR and pics. Sounds like you did the morning shift and I closed the place up. That brown patch of snow was moss, grass, rocks, and mud when I got there....

    I'm gonna assume the kid in the pics/vid is your son. His smile at the bottom of the lift is what it's all about plus he sure makes skiing them bumps look easy. Thanks for sharing.

    Spencer's a great kid. And the progress he's made in the past few years since I first met him is amazing. With a dad who skis like 180, that's just gonna happen. Good stuff.
    I ski double black diamonds.
