Spring Skiing at It’s Best

Three of the young fellas from Tuesday’s JISP program.

Nothing you can’t ski over or around.

Open, 32º at 7am. Forecast high 50º. Faster in the morning. Faster in the shade, slower in the sun and later in the morning.

The track of the Thursday/Friday storm, at this moment, is farther south. The total snow forecast, right this moment, is 1-4 inches, as close as I can guess. (I was going to say figure, but really it is guess.) ...

Spring Skiing in the Sun

Time to hang the buckets.

Open, 26º at 7am. Forecast high 43º. Another beautiful sunny day for a ski.

Great spring skiing. Hard and fast in the morning. Slow and soft as the temperatures rise and the sun softens. the snow. There is a time during the day when in the shade is still fast and in the sun is slow. There was a least one spectacular face plant yesterday, it was a 5 year old, but he was quite surprised when his skis slowed down and he landed face first in the snow. ...

Yoga News for the Week.

Legs up, relax down. February 21 and all the window open.

A note on the road. It is spring, with warm weather the road gets soft. It the temperature freezes at night, it slows the softening down. A general rule for driving in the mud. Aim high, slow down, don’t stop.
