75 miles from house on back, back county roads going from pass Bethel NY home of Woodstock concert from 1960. My cousin drove his GMC so we got their in about 815. On the way get message from Cornhead that he meet us their. Awesome News ,my cousin forgot his goggles but Cornhead came in with two for ny cousin to borrow, he really appreciated that. Started on chair at 830 am. Nice I am probably earliest day for me not counting staying in hotel. My cousin and his GF first time to Elk. It snowy most of the morning conditions were good a little crowds but not more then few minutes wait at lift line. They liked the hill a lot nice crusing trails, bought morning ticket , I did the mogul trail and lost them I tend to that to much. Got hungry had bad burger their , then meet up again ski some more fun times were had by all. Thanks Cornhead for coming my cousin and his GF said you were cool they did take more runs with you then me lol. Cornhead had to leave around 12 ish so he could catch football. I skiied to 115 pm. Hopefully the girl who fell from beginner chair is okay. Another great day at Elk, sorry I didn't realize Spring Mountain High was there.
