Belleayre- Feb. 11, 2014

Conditions: powder, PP, groomed corduroy
Temp on arrival: 0; departure: 10
Rolled in at 8:30 under gorgeous blue bird skies. The cold temps kept the snow soft and powdery all day- best conditions of the season. Every trail I skied, from Roaring Brook over to Dot, was sweet. I stayed on piste all day, as the couple of times I attempted to venture off I sank in almost to my knees. Lots of snow in the trees- I'll need to take out the wide boards next time. 49 trails officially open, and the rest had tracks. They were blowing snow on Wanatuska top to bottom and it drifted over towards Superchief lift, so I kept my face covered riding up. Saw snowmaking clouds down on the lower mountain too. (Looks like they're putting the finishing touches on before the big holiday week.) Lots of bump runs (Winisook, Tongora, Belleayre, Onteora, Seneca, Algonquin). They also opened up the skier/boarder cross trail at the bottom of Roaring Brook, which is a rush. No lines at all- skied right onto the lifts. Warmed up by the blazing fireplace in Overlook Lodge. An awesome day.
