Mt. Snow – Sun. 4/3/16

Cornhead and I skied Mt. Snow on Sun. 4/3/16. We left Binghamton NY, at 4am and got to Mt. Snow at about 8:30am. It's about 204 miles for us to get there. It was cold and snowing during the trip out. Worst roads with snow cover were on the Northway - I87 at Albany and thru Troy NY. About 3-4" of fresh snow at Mt. Snow. Lift tickets were $55. Coverage on the open trails was good, with some icy areas here and there. It was very windy and cold. 2 lifts running, the Bluebird Bubble Quad High Speed Detachable and the Carpathian Detachable Quad. The North Face was closed. The Bubble lift was nice as the bubble shielded us from the high winds. The chairs are heavy 1,400 lbs. each and the bubble shield is areodynamically shaped. So the bubble chairs did not blow around much. But at 2:40pm they put the Bluebird Bubble express on windhold. Good day of skiing, but we were hoping they got more snow.

Driving in about 8:30am the road was blocked by a West Dover Fire Truck and the Fireman said a speeding pickup truck slid off the road and into the lake in front of the Snow Lake Lodge. Here is a pic of the truck being winched out by a Roll Back Truck:
