    Magic 20/21: Quadrophenia - "Strike out to reach a mountain"

    I got stuck behind this punk on the way out of town this morning.

    It's been a while....

    Magic got 10-12" of mank yesterday and then 4+" of upslope overnight and through today. The base is there and another storm preceded by some grooming as the mank drains and freezes will put the entire mountain in play (again).

    West side was definitely challenging and way too many first-timers didn't understand what "Experts Only" means at a place like Magic but fun was had. The "Chute" was quite the comedy zone as snowplowers asked, "Is that a Double Black Diamond?"

    For those in the know, this is Sorceror today:

    Monday proved to be the best day of the storm cycle. Another 3-4" of upslope overnight and it continued throughout the day. Runs that were 4" of fluff on coral reef on Sunday became 6-8" of soft, almost blower snow, on top of a now-smooth and supportable base. 15-20 minute lift lines on Sunday became 2-5 minute lines on Monday. Ventured into the woods even.

    We skied the "Progression" starting with Slide of Hans and working our way eastward across the mountain. Trick Woods was definitely in play and Magician from the top skied as good as I've ever seen it. So much snow in the top 2/3 of Goniff and T-Zone.

    BTW, I don't see how we can call the Hallows a tree run any more. It's much wider than Broomstick or Whiteout after the logging that went on in there.

    I summarized last weekend for Harv in the NYSkiBlog. He edited out my caveman language and cleaned it up nice.

    Good day at Magic today. Got the 3 year old to head west and check off Tali. The five year old skied White Tiger, was scared, but confidently worked her way down. The one year old skied the off piste behind the condo. Click image for larger version.

    Magic 20/21: Quadrophenia - "Strike out to reach a mountain"

    NOAA snow depth chart shows Magic in good company with the Prezzies and Tug Hill.

    Fingers crossed for a nice refresh tonight into tomorrow. Still skiing great but we haven't gotten any appreciable snow for a week. Steep natural snow trails are showing some wear in the usual spots. Grooming has been spot on and opened up a lot more terrain for the masses. Now that the holidays are almost over, hoping they stop and let the bumps build back up.
