Mostly sunny, 32 degrees.
Hey look it’s a snow report on Saturday! As you may know, I don’t usually post on Saturday because I don’t usually ski on Saturday, and I didn’t ski today either. However, given the dubious weather of the last few days, I thought it might be interesting to speak with someone who did ski today. It was such a nice day to be outside doing anything that I had a feeling it might have been a particularly nice day to be out skiing. I was right.
My source indicated that he was somewhat skeptical, knowing as he did that rain and mixed precipitation had fallen for the better part of the preceding 24 hours. A cautious first run down East Fall was… Good. Cascade was also good, so good in fact that it necessitated several more runs. My incredulous source next scooted over to Superstar. Surely Superstar would be more characteristic of the expected conditions. Nope, Superstar was great too. Firm, sure, but clad in a pleasantly carveable (I know, that’s not really a word) substance left behind by the strange weather. Furthermore, the nice surface held up and still hadn’t been skied off at 1:00. “How could it be good,” my source asked? “Don’t ask, it’s a gift,” I replied. Some questions just don’t need to be answered.
