Firsthand Account: Liberty
By a DCSki Reader

Ski Liberty First Hand Account for the Weekend of February 6-7 .

Conditions at Ski Liberty this past weekend started out good but deteriorated as the weekend progressed.

Saturday started out cloudy but dry with above-freezing temperatures. For those who love spring skiing, the conditions were very good as the loose granular surface lent itself to carving turns almost anywhere on the 18 of 20 open trails.

As it does every season around this time, Liberty has stopped grooming upper and lower Eastwind and sizable moguls have appeared. Carving through the bumps on Saturday was a mogul skier’s dream (now if they could only get the bumps more evenly spaced..) By afternoon, the sun even made a brief appearance. As temperatures stayed mild, skiing into the evening remained good with little of the usual freeze up of the trails.

Sunday, however, proved to be a big disappointment. Due in large part to the rain/sleet/snow/rain mix, skiing conditions at Liberty were not very good. In fact, visibility at the top of the mountain was sharply limited by cloud cover that extended down over the top third of the upper trails. Rain ended late in the afternoon, only to reappear at the end of the evening. Hopefully, conditions will improve next week and the rain will stay away.
