A Tardy Report
It is eleven at night, which is a silly time to be writing a ski report,
but as it is my son's fourteenth birthday
I am rather late at getting around to it. I probably shouldn't bother, but I
lugged the camera around today and so decided better late than never.
Lower down it wasn't as nice and things like Freeway and lower Diamond Back were rather crispy and crusty. The lower groomed runs were quite firm and while generally reasonably grippy, there were certainly places that tingled my rather sensitive ice receptors. Still, these are pretty minor gripes considering the very good skiing that was available.
We have now reached the stage where the base and coverage is quite good and the key factor in determining ski quality on any given day is simply the weather in the preceding couple of days. Let's hope the Griz keeps up the good work. :-)
At eleven P.M. it is -8 C at the house with just the odd lonely flake falling.
