I'm a little late posting my February skiing. I had 9 days in February all of them except for one were at Mountain Creek and Mt. Peter.

The one day that wasn't at those two places was at Deer Valley. It was my first time skiing out west. I was at Salt Lake City for a few days for work and brought my skis and boots since I knew I'd have a free day.
How did you like DV?

I liked it. The snow was really great hero snow. And it snowed about 4" there the day before I went. Since I mostly like to ski groomers and carve it was perfect for that. Since it was a Thursday it was pretty much ski onto the lifts all day.

It was immense also compared to what I'm used to since I've only asked NY, NJ, PA and Southern VT. However I thought I could get some long sustained vertical but i really couldn't find it the way the area is laid out. I think 1,200 or 1,300 feet was the most continuous vert I could find.

The day before I skied I was still trying to decide between Park City, Deer Valley and Brighton. PC seemed like I would spend a lot of time trying to find my way around since it's so huge. I decided on DV since I figured I might as well spend the money and go where I think I'd get the highest quality groomers and experience for my one day there. Ironically it looks like I have as much snow here in Jersey. There's still a ton of snow here in NW Jersey, though not for long since it's going up into the 50s and 60s this week so it will be spring skiing time.

Day 4 Cranmore in No Conway. The prior three days were at 200 vertical foot hills and I needed to see what some sustained vert would do to me. Cranmore is 1,200 feet. It kicked my butt! I did get 7 runs in as well as 2 hours and 20 minutes of driving each way. My body has some work needed!

31 days with the last 3 at Saddleback, a trip that delivered on every front. When we quit yesterday close to 4pm, I hit the bar for drinks. I sat at the table and realized I was truly exhausted from 3 days of fantastic skiing. I don’t get that feeling often enough.

29 days in so far. Most I have done in a season is 31, but I could top 40 this year as weather permitting I plan to ski 7 of the first 9 days in April and the 3 remaining weekends in March.

Great Wednesday at Gore. The Rumor was awesome before lunch and Burnt Ridge trees made a fine dessert after 1:00. That's a real skiing smile.

Day 5 at a very uncrowded McIntyre with its glorious 200 vertical feet. Began to get the feel for better angulation and having the skis snap around much quicker. As the low back no longer bends, I have to do this with hips and knees. Starting to figure it out, but my cardio is TERRIBLE!!!!
