Mount snow 1/15/14 …spring skiing on bear trap!

Well, after my last three times out we're in pretty terrible conditions, today I was pleasantly reminded that I love skiing! I went to mt snow for a short afternoon session in bright sunshine and temp around 35-40 when I arrived. On the ride up my chair mates who had been there all day told me bear trap was skiing nice, so I immediately headed that wat. The trail was in full sun, snow was perfect spring consistency, soft, corny, not mushy yet. Some skiers had established a single line of a dozen or so bumps at the top of the trail on skiers right. I had a good chance to practice maintaining a line since there was no choice but the one line to take! Music was playing...everything was sweet over there. I stayed right there for the afternoon and just lapped the short lift that serves bear trap. Rest of mountain is as one would expect. Thin base, only snowmaking trails open, some icy patches, lots of scraped off areas. This weekend is going to be a real challenge for mt. Snow.
