Good Monday Morning. I got to ski for about an hour on Friday, got into the parking lot (empty) about 3:30 just in time for it to start spitting rain. Got to take a tour of the mountain though; it looks like the last weekend in March. Conditions were more like water skiing and I was soaked to the bone. Too wet for a trip to the pub.
We sat out the rain Sat am and got there about 10:00. Had a mixed group of skiers so there was something for everyone with what was open. Salamander was fast, really a nice cruise. What really amazed me was how fast the wind dried things out ande the temp dropped from mid 40's to 28 with 5 wind chill by happy hour.
johnfmh, that path around the barespot on skiers right almost turned into a chute later in the day. It almost felt like you needed to make jump turns to stay in it. We found a line to the left that worked but there were a lot of bad lines out there too, I found most of them.
Saturday's conditions were fun. Skied til about 5:00 and wentin to TP for red eyes just as the evenings entertainment, Saddletramp, was getting started up. During their 2nd set, none other than Doc sat in to play fiddle with the band. That really revved the place up.
You're probalblly right about MLK weekend but I think they'll still have what was open this weekend next. They've got some big piles left in the terrain park and on the race course that they might save until winter returns. I'm not so worried about the temp as the rain. Rain really burns the base up.
Checked Wisp out on the drive down and was suprised (pleasantly) at how much white they're still showing. We'll be staying @ deep creek MLK weekend. Hope to sneak down to TL one day (unless we get snowed in in Garrett county
