Have a friend looking for instructor recommendations for Mount Snow. She's a cautious intermediate who learned as a older adult. Getting back on the slopes after a few years off for assorted reasons. Any ideas?
With all the discussion about how impressive the snow making was this fall, no one opened a thread. I know Snow is sort-of the redheaded step child of Peaks on most forums I really enjoy skiing there with the family. It is closer than Wildcat/Attitash for day trips for me definitely an easier ride. Hope to make first turns of the season there this week. Feel free to discuss... Few pics from last April 1st
I finally got my ski season started today with a trip to Mt. Snow where I met up with Powhunter. He got there before me (I was in no big rush today!), and managed to get a bunch of runs by the time we met up. We got started on Lodge under the (not spinning) Bluebird. The guns were firing on the upper mountain, and the snow was sort of a mixed bag. In some spots it skied well, and in others it was pretty grabby... But with the marginal temperatures, it was definitely sticking to the goggles. The lower part of the run (below the snowguns) and over to Exhibition skied fairly well and allowed some room for some bigger turns. We also ventured over to check out Carinthia, but there was only one run going (gulch?) which wasn't very exciting. Nitro the trail had snow and the cats were out building features, so that will probably be online soon. We also skied Cascade to Canyon. Cascade was decent - however it was under the guns which made visibility a challenge. Canyon was ok at the top, but the bottom was a pretty sketchy layer of porcelain crust, which required a bit of skillful aiming rather than turning! All-in-all, it was a decent day of early-season conditions. I might have stayed for a few more runs had the temp been just a bit higher to turn the guns off, but I definitely don't hold it against them for blowing snow at every opportunity available. It wasn't a particularly pictureworthy day, but here are a few:
