A Beautiful Day to Ski

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

As per usual this winter, the latest snow misses us to the south and we only get a dusting. Oh well, it’s a beautiful late winter day, too nice not to be out doing something, like skiing. Even with a snow drought this winter, and the rain and thaw of a couple of weeks ago, the ski areas have been able to make a ton of snow to play on. Conditions today were great! Lots of sun and moderate temps, the birds were chirping. You can tell that spring is not long in the future. Our local hill, West Mountain, is just 5 minutes from my door and provides easy access to some fun at a kind of throw-back type of ski hill – as you can see by the old fashioned chair lift in my pics.

Great Conditions!
