Final days

The mountain closes for the season on Sunday so I'm almost done for 2007-08.

Which is a tragedy of Shakespearean proportions given how unbelievably good the skiing still is (think King Lear Richard III who said something like "another week, another week, my kingdom for another week").

It's stayed cool enough on the upper mountain that the snow we had last week has not melted and refrozen overnight in typical Spring style but instead is still soft and buttery. It's a complete contrast to last year when Spring seemed to come in early March and stayed with a vengeance.

It was especially good on the Ridge (not on today's track due to technical difficulties) the trees of Closet which I did twice (but again only appears once due to the unforeseen technical problem), Triangle 3 and Tornado.

Here's today's track. Note that the straight line between the Morningside Chair and the Sundown Express is an artifact of the GPS unit somehow being paused and me turning it back on when I notice. I'll need to figure out how to stop that from happening by next year.

King Lear? I thought it was Richard III and something about a horse??

Well done, you spotted the deliberate error. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Hey it's my blog...)
