Mount Snow / Peace Pipe Rail Jam
With winter all but in the rear view I couldn't resit one last look at the snow.
Me and some buddies headed up to Mount Snow for their Peace Pipe Rail Jam at the bottom of Inferno. For those of you who might not know, that trail has their largest jump which they leave in the pile until Memorial day weekend to spread out and throw up a few rails.
We drove up and arrived for the session at about 10:15 and the entire upper Carthina parking lot was full and cars were starting to fill in the lower section. We got a spot right at the end of the top lot. I have to say I was surprised at the crowd but all in all what they had to offer was impressive considering the winter. They had some tunes playing and the lodge bathrooms were open but there were no concessions at all open. It was very hot with the sun blaring down most of the day. Considering the heat, the coverage lasted pretty good throughout the day.
We channeled a little of our inner A-basin and grilled up some burgers and dogs between the sessions and overall had a great time. My ACL recovery is going great but I wasn't quite ready to put on some skis so I spent some time looking around the base area at their progress. It looks like most of the trees are cut down in the area next to Grommet and some near heavy metal. Some piles of wood chips are all over with the logs in various places. The Ski Baba lift is still there. None of the cabins on Carinthia Way have been touched yet so it looks like we will get out place again next season before they start tearing stuff down.
All in all a great day and I'm glad to have gone up.
