Getting the most out of my $99 weekend season pass (5 trips so far) we made the 6 hour round trip. We finally came out of the deep freeze, but the wind kicked up so the wind chill was pretty bad. At one point one of the owners was on the top of the South Peak assesing the wind and weather or not to close the lift. The gusts would catch your skis and try and pull you off the lift just before the unload station. Ultimately they left it open, but I saw him over at that lift a number of times throughout the day. The snow was perfect packed powder, the best I have ever seen at the Peaks. Looking like the new groomer is paying off.

For lunch we tailgated, turned the heater on in the camper and took shelter from the wind

    That was all yesterday.

    Hiking in ski boots is not my favorite thing. Hopefully after they make another Peak the tournament area will be like the current back country where you don’t have to hike to far to get out.
    Jim video is a very short clip. Maybe 10-20 seconds
