Went back and feasted on two inches of powder.....Base still well over 4 feet....Was able to get those new e109's to really turn....All on low to medium angle....If on the steeps you cut to ice but in lower angle speed was instant and the skis pushed up powder and the skis rode that....2 inches equals 4-5 if you can ride the slough your skis push up...Really fun....Nice turns were had on the rounded and generally flat surface...Steeps moderate or low angle the surface is wonderful...Arc it guys...TM

Sunday was a good ski with lots of variable snow-corn-hardpack....Got a few good shots! lots of later surface slush and while skiing wasn't the best b3ing way out there in the hills of the Kingdom was excellent....Today was difficult with wind blown powder down in deep and hiding from the wind.....Tiny balls of snow turning into a glacier!!!!!! Low angle where the powder was.... was so soooooft....Teleking says he or I or any of the boys will break those 109's ...Will see but me thinks he doesn't "GET" the construction and thinking that went into the very soft tips....Keep arcing!!!!

Tough skiing...Hit the lower part of Little Mountain and it was BAD....Slow snow....And breaking in....Sometimes knee deep....What energy to bring that ski up....Got to the point of taking baby steps to stay afloat so to speak....Got back to the car and was happy to be back....TM

Stowe was fun on Friday. Could have gone yesterday, still had a day on my pass to use but needed a lazy day after 4-20!!
Think My skiing days this season are seriously numbered. Backcountry is about done. I’ll check the conditions tomorrow morning and see! Maybe Tucks! Probably hike up Mansfield one time. Transitioning into golf and horseshoes.

Good workout yesterday up in the Gap....Just skied in and about with almost no turns as the snow could at any time crash and in you go up to the knee....12-30 inches most places and just one cool night and the skiing could be revived.....Some deep tree wells and decent cover....But....any place that gets South or West sun is gone....Will get a May ski up there and on a really good sunny day hit Mansfield.....TM

Only "turn out tele's" because of conditions....had to ski some leaves and lichen but what fun in seriously Spring conditions...Large tree wells....but openings if you dare to let them go...Not me!......Just turn them into the fall line and come to a sliding rest....Soft wet snow and melting fast....But the Gap up there keeps on giving...Just one night of cold and some good turns could be had....Will see!...Rock will talk to Deb and we might come on over...TM

Hoped to get one more turn up in the Highlands.....and did.....A patch tucked into ledge of about 50 yards and pretty wild...Scored a couple of "turn out Tele's".....The rest was ride the rail and hope for the best....Figure that ends this years version of BC Kingdom....Enjoyed writing this up and hope to have a sunny warm day over at Stowe....Will see....TM
