We have snow! Conditions are so much better than last week. However, it was a low bar to get over.
Should you be worried if you see running, we are talking a stream of water in the middle of the run you are about to come down?
This is where we welcome all non New England boarders and skiers to real New England conditions…..
This picture sums it up.
Here’s another picture and I might add more appropriate attire for today’s/tonigh’s conditions.
Now all we need is a good snow dance. Remember this one!
Last night was our first ski/boarding session for GMans school. This year as always I’m heading to Wachusett Mountain early to save some tables. However, as this is GMans last year I’m also bringing JMan.
GMan on the other hand was off ripping black diamonds with his classmates. I think I saw him twice the whole evening. It’s a teenager thing…..being there, done that, have lots of tee shirts to prove it.
After his lesson we had dinner….well 1st dinner. About a hour and a half later JMan announced he wanted a second dinner! Then it was back out for a few more runs. I did make the top a few times thanks to the other school parents hanging out in the lodge.
One thing I noticed……it’s really hard to snowboard slow! Like hiking, where all should walk as fast as the slowest hiker, I both wanted to hang with JMan so I could give him pointers ,encourage him and stay upright while moving at a glacial place, not to mention avoiding the novice skiers/boarders…….it’s more of a workout than going flat out!
However, like I did with his big brother, there’s are cherished moments and won’t be forgotten.
Have fun, board or ski safe and if your my age keep all flat surfaces attached to feet on the ground at all time.
Thou shalt not let air between thine board and that white surface upon which you glide…..
In the spirit of the holiday season, and for the sake of my architectural degree, JMan, GMan and I build a gingerbread house. Tonight JMan and I applied the finishing touches.
