April 8, powder day

Postby Dirk » Mon Apr 10, 2017 8:46 am

For real. Mt. Ellen was closed for the season, and there was 6 to 8 inches of dense powder to play in.

There were a handful of people out, but mostly I was alone. I felt fortunate to get out on the last powder day of the season.

wow, looks beautiful. It's too bad people aren't skiing enough to keep the lifts going, the Mansfield stake just peaked at 112 inches.

Sweet score, Dirk! Winter persists at elevation despite t-shirt weather down here in the tropics.

Another powder day....amazing snow.

Looks like you found the same super slippery dense snow in VT as we found in NH.

Edit to add:
Willy reported 7-10 of the dry in ther High Peaks. Seems like the whole Northeast was out revelling!

Not the whole Northeast! We missed the powder, but enjoyed the new snow on Cannon Sunday. Everyone else I know was out cycling--cycling! With such a huge snowpack! And a perfect bluebird spring day! People! :roll:

I think many of my ski buds are getting old. The older ones, apparently, are getting younger. You know who you are!

If only that were even a little true. I keep waiting for that second childhood to kick in but nothing so far.

I'm letting my inner ten year-old take charge for a while, does that count?
