Great day skiing with my Dad Peter Pelland at Bolton Valley today.

His legs burned out faster than mine, we poached a couple runs. Powder and packed power everywhere. Launched the 10 foot cliff off Vista Glades twice, lost both skies both times (need to tighten up those DIN settings!). Peter Skied Devil's Playground which is some hardcore <><> woods, real steep, conditions were great. Proud of my father. Today was a blessing.

There were many "closed" trails at Bolton that IMO were totally ready to go. Poached TNT (closed, no reason why) and poached Adam's Solitude. No reason for any of those trails to be closed. Talked to ski patrol prior and they said "go for it, let us know how it is if you see us later".

Hey but at least we got first tracks on fresh pow. My Dad worries about ducking closed lines; but I'm a good convincer :)

Several yard sales today but it was a blast.

Wilderness chair never opened all day... "Not enough snow up there"

Are you kidding me?
