POW-Dah

From Mad River’s website this morning:

POWDER CENTRAL at Mad River Glen today as we picked up a solid 12″ overnight. This on top of the 8-10″ yesterday, on top of the 4-6″ from the day before that so we will be approaching EPIC skiing conditions today on Gen. Stark Mountain. I was no math major but I think that like 2 feet in the past 3 days! It continues to dump snow vigorously and the best part is it should continue to do so all day with well over a foot total expected. Actually the best part really is that yet another big storm is winding up to wallop us again this weekend

So after a lifetime of learning how to ski on hard packed snow and ice (we’re talking eastern skiing), I’m now having to learn how to ski in real powder. My skis are too skinny, that’s for sure. But if I find powder that is a little fluffier, I’m turning like a champ. If it’s too heavy I unexpectedly revert to the snowplow I learned when I was 6 years old.Well, at least it’s a really soft landing when you fall. When my ego and my energy level fail me, I can always fall back on that old excuse: “ummm, I have to go home and get back to work!”
