Shot of a young boarder hitting some soft, but sizable moguls on Lower Eastwind trail (Liberty regulars correct me if wrong). Less than 90 minutes from downtown, Ski Liberty is a true cradle of DC area skiing. Located in south central Pennsylvania, I made my first visit there around 1968 when it was still called Charnita and have a parka patch in the attic to prove it. I recently read that the original developers in the mid '60s were Charlie and Anita Rist, hence the cute name of Charnita.
A photo of me from the same album, just kidding sorta.

That is lower Eastwind. At one time this year, the groomers made those bumps. They have a special snowcat attachment.

For about 3 days (they made them on a Tuesday) we had perfect size and perfectly spaced bumps. I was able to ski down the middle. I felt like Johnny Mosely. After about 3 days, they started getting cut up so it was too hard to straight-line it.

One of the benefits of working at a ski resort.
