    Yeah, I thought the slalom thing was real? Is it not? Snow looks good, gramps.

    TJ super cool guy, thanks for setting that up. Was perfect and now we need to get to the Bush with you and him next year. And screw the whole fitness thing...Tim and I are beer drinkin weed tokin' slackers. It's not a race...it's recreation in the sun.

    Rob, were you in airplane early on Saturday? When we went over to the easties I had no idea who you were...there were quite a few gray beards Skiers left was nice an buff even at the end of the day...which I needed sliding sideways.

    Hiking in and with snowboard gear is a hundred times better than ski gear...damn! And whoever set the boot pack (Rob?) in the Easties deserves a beer! That was a perfect stairway. Airplane was a little f'd, but hey I'm not complaining, just saying how awesome eastie was...Rog should have hiked up before the road opened and set a better track for us.

    That was to have been Monday. The Road delayed opening on Monday due to sinkhole repair. They were aiming for 10AM. With the low-mid 30sF for temps, a breeze and somewhat heavy rain due at 11:30 or so, I bagged it and went home...I was first in line (three days in a row).

    Next year, Slalom each of the Days!

    I'll collect that beer sometime or other. I love a bootpack that leaves me ready for another run when I top out. I have been known to set new ones in parallel to the stairmaster boot ladders

    Absolutely! Yes, I learned the art of making a bootpack from a pro photog way back. It's all about cadence and low risers. Like spinning a bike!

    Any opinion on how much snow left in Great Gulf and snowfields (wondering with the rain forecast in the 1st part of this week)? I'd like to head down to K on June 1 (if they open) then head to see Otto Rhodes on Friday?

    This w/e was pretty sweet. Lots of folks happy with the snow and its extent.

    Lots of liquid precip is probable for a few days but Friday could be decent, albeit cool. It's a long way to go for a Bifurcated Airplane and big patch in the East Snowfields, but nothing that could stop an earnest soul.

    Not as far as October turns in West Virginia. :P

    Right now the forecast isn't great for Friday (Showers likely, mainly after 8am. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 39. Very windy. Chance of precipitation is 60%.) considering the long drive. Not use to plan to far ahead, we'll see if I'm at K on Thursday.

    Spotted this on the webcam at 5:38 this morning:

    A lone groomer trying to salvage continuous skiing for tomorrow. Hopefully the damage isn't too severe.

    If they're grooming, my guess is, lift served skiing in Vermont on June 1st! Plan accordingly. I'm working till noon in Ludlow. See you on the hill at 1:00.

    Season is not over yet. My post was that Ben said this is the last episode of the Working for the Weekend series.
    Lifts or not I talked to skiers who will be at K tomorrow.

    12:37 pm 05/31/17--We made it skiers and riders, we'll be skiing in June. Thursday, June 1 will be the final day of lift-served skiing and snowboarding this season and lift tickets will be FREE! The Superstar Express Quad will turn from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. but you'll want to get here early because we'll be handing out June 1 t-shirts at 8:30 to the first 250 skiers and riders in line. Music provided by DJ Dave and refreshing beverages available at the Roaring Brook Umbrella Bar. Don't miss this exciting opportunity, it's the first lift-served June Skiing and riding in 15 years.
