SKI Report
« on: January 07, 2018, 08:51:59 PM »
This year a few of us here bought season passes to Terry Peak.  Lately every year we get a group together for a day or two of skiing fun.  This year for the first time, I got a season pass also and now have all my gear again.  So today I went Skiing!  I didn't get there until after 1 pm or so, but hey I didn't care, I have a pass!  On the way home I got to thinking about the last few years and people meeting to go skiing.  Basically, the east river guys coming out.  So I decided we should have a "Skiing Thread" to plan day trips and to report on conditions for anyone that might be going or coming out to the hills.  Oh yeah, and for Danny Boy and I to talk trash about racing each other.

So here it is.  Weather was great, bright and sunny.  Only skied a couple of hours, but managed to make about 10 runs.  Snow conditions were at best, okay.  Only about 4 runs were open and two chair lifts.  Kussy was my first run.  About 1/2 way, I got a phone call.  That at least let me rest.  Kussy was kind of icy.  Not bad, but just to the point you couldn't trust the snow as you turned.  Left side of Kussy was showing signs of weeds poking up.  The Steward side of the mountain was much better.  I stayed there most of the time.  Only running Kussy on the first and last run.

So there you have it, my first ski report.  So any of you skier types out there looking for company to ski with, post it here.

Thanks Dave.

Actually I have been thinking about taking a trip out soon. I thought about it this weekend but I knew the terrain was limited so I decided to wait a bit. I may however decide to come out this coming weekend but will know till probably Thursday.
We shall see.

Oh, by the way, another 20 visits to the hill you may begin trusting the snow are you turn. That an East cost skill you may know nothing about.  :evil
