The ski season officially begins this weekend. Last night, the official "Back in the Saddle" Pot Luck Party kicked off the season. Most people start to think about winter and snow in December, there are a few of us who jumped the gun... Anyway, the winter people are back, and the winter vibe has begun.
The Beast (aka Killington) didn't disappoint either. It's amazing how good the conditions are considering the heavy rains and strong winds on Wednesday. This morning, the snow was fast very hard pack, covered with loose granular granular on top. Plenty of terrain is open, lift lines were managable. Tomorrow the Superstar chair begins to roll, expanding the terrain to Bittersweet and Skylark. Life is good!
My apres ski included lunch at the Long Trail Brewery, dropping my skis off to get tuned, then I ended with the annual condo association meeting and cocktail party. I could have hung out with friends tonight, but I am pooped. PJ time, a little TV, then this girl is off to bed so I can do it all again tomorrow when the lifts open at 8am.
