After a long week of dealing with the Dark Matter Wars that are continually on going, I was finally able to get up on the hill to make a few turns. The snow was falling briskly as the first chairs were loading, and the visibility was not too bad to with some promising breaks in the clouds. I went to the top of the Little Cloud chair, where I found the Groomers to be smooth and dialable, though the off trail was looking very difficult with the old frozen layer lying underneath the new accumulation. Here is a shot of the snow falling as I made my way to the lifts. Over on Gad 2, the lines were much softer, with the lower elevations offering silky smooth sugar that felt sumptuous. I was dialing in as many turns as possible to extract as much of the deluxe feel as I could get. The melt off has been significant during the last week despite the overcast that has hung on the hill every day. Still, there was plenty of snow to ski right on the lift at the bottom. There is still plenty of cover on the upper elevations, but we will have to wait and see what the week brings as far as melt off on the bottom. I return to further missions in the Dark Matter Wars this week, where I will deal sternly with the encroaching Archonic forces that have been relentless in creating havoc in and around this Solar System. No worries, as we are invincible and it is only a matter of TIME after all. Syrup Won’t Stop ‘EM!!
