Arrived around 10am with discount passes. Temps hovering around 20 degrees, no wind and overcast.

I went with my buddy who is a sit skier. First time skiing with him, was completely blown away with how this kid can rip. I knew he was going to be good, as he's been invited to ski with the US Paralympic team in the past, but damn.

We got out on the slopes around 11:00 after getting the mono ski set up. The snow was great. Packed powder with plenty of loose powder on the edge of the trails. I usually find that Jiminy grooms edge to edge, but they left a generous amount of loose stuff on the sides. They also left some great soft moguls on the edges of Whitetail and Wild Turkey. We stuck to the same 7 or so trails that had generous amounts of loose stuff. Great day overall, one of the best days condition wise I've ever had at Jiminy.

Thanks for posting, I've often thought how liberating skiing must be for those who have lost, or never had, use of their legs. Kudos, to all skiers/boarders with disabilities out there.
