Stowe 3-27

Drove up from MA after dropping kids off in the morning so I didn't get on the snow until close to noon. Sunny and cool start. Snow was nice packed powder and skiing well. For some reason I wasn't feeling great and kind of struggled a bit all day. Switched skis to see if that would help (did in the groomer, not in the bumps/glades). Took a few breaks and just enjoyed the weather without pushing myself too much.

Chin Clip was nice:

MRG 3-28

It snowed about 2-3 inches of nice creamy snow in the morning with rain sleet forecast for the day. I was still feeling a little off but wasn't going to let that get in the way especially since the lines were so long! After the first run where I ended up going down a rabbit hole I started to feel a lot better and got my legs back. The snow made for great skiing at the top it was a nice coating on everything and kept it all smooth. Once you got to the lower half it was tough especially when it started to rain and the stuff got really sticky.

I forget how big a mtn MRG actually is and it takes a while to get down.

My poorly edited video of my mediocre tree skiing. I only got one run in before my helmet mount broke:

There seems to be a limit to attachments so I'll follow up below ...

Magic 3-28

Another nice spring day. My son had us up all night throwing up so we got a late start and it was just me, my daughter and my GFs son for the day. The usual kids cruising terrain, but got them to come down a few bump runs and they did really well.

We finished up the night at the BLT with a beer by the fire pit waiting for the fireworks. The fireworks were kind of insane/awesome. They had them set-up at the base of the tubing hill and some dude with a flare was just setting them off. They were crazy close and a couple went off course and blew up really close to all the kids running around in front. And in a few dudes zooming around on snowmobiles in the dark and it was a wild time.

I missed meeting up with anyone again. I just need to get back without the kids. It's tough to get away when they are in tow.

Awesome. I really wanted to get out this past weekend but the rain threw me for a loop. Is Magic open this weekend again still? I'd really like to go, once this year, at least. It's been so hard.

I think it's their last weekend.
