I took the day off and made the trip from Thomas College to Sunday River to get some more early
season turns on the mountain. Ask my family, they think i’m crazy. I think that too. But there’s nothing like some buttery turns and some rail slides on a weekday.
Conditions were good in the morning with a fresh half inch of snow falling. This made the groomers decent for November skiing. It was Frozen Granular, but my Volkl Kinks held up marvelously. As the day went on the snow changed to sleet and freezing rain, then to all rain at the base. I tried to get the GoPro fired up for at least one run, but the battery was not charged.
The Terrain Park crew hooked us up with some stellar features for the upcoming weekend that I got to test out before the good park skiers got to it. It is approved by me!
Overall it was a great day trip to cure my skiing fever. See you on the slopes!
