Well around last night when my friend at Hidden Valley called, and told me there was 2 inchs already, i knew today would be my first chance to go skiing in alittle less than 6 months. Left school at 11 oclock arriving at 12. Drive up was surreal, tree braches littering the road. Snow everywhere even on the road in some spots. I got there booted up and made way up Imperail. After the long and tedious hike, i click in to my metrons(yes i am deranged, and proceed to ski a FOOT of snow. Only to fall 3 turns later. Fall again on this run but i am smiling all the way.
Next run I take is stingray, make it down this one with out falling in the very heavy wet snow, skiing this stuff takes skills i didnt know i had, it does how ever get easier on steeper sections. Next run i make my way up to Thunderbird check out my glade diablo decide no way in hell i can make it though. Proceed to go down thunderbird which would of been my best run with slow Gs turns coming out of the snow but left a foot behin and went one footed for a good 30 feet though no fall though. Last run our SSD Joy finally makes it over and she takes all the picture from firebird, one fall from skis catching on grass i think, but these were the best turns of the day:). Anyways it was so much fun to ski today, if you go out dress lightly, eat tons of carbs, and if you go to Hidden Valley dont worry about you rskis, i didnt get single scratch on my metrons.

Those pix made my day...anybody that'll work that hard for a few slushy turns gets 5 stars in my book. And the non-skiers you relate your day to will just stare at you as if you just climbed off the short bus. Love to hear the tales of a fellow addict.... Kudos dude!!!

Really great pictures. I am jealous! And the grin on your face shows that all the work climbing the slopes was really worth it.
Wow, real skiing in the mid-Atlantic in October. Let's hope it is an indication of the winter to come!
