I had 2 days of delightful skiing in Vermont last weekend. Stayed 2 nights at the Blueberry Hill Inn with a couple of friends. We were the only ones at the inn. It snowed Thursday and Friday night, so we had 3 inches of fresh powder to ski on Saturday. Skied a 9 mile section of the Catamount Trail from near Rikert Ski Center back to Blueberry Hill in 5 hours. No groomed trails, all backcountry powder. Saw 7 other skiers and one dog all day. Sunday morning we skied a loop on the Blueberry Hill trails with some climbing to a gorgeous viewpoint. Sunday afternoon I drove from the western side of the Green Mountains into the Conn River valley and skied 2 hours with a friend at the Strafford Ski Center. Not as much snow and groomed trails that were somewhat glazed but still nice. It was cold enough all weekend that I was skiing on extra blue and special violet wax. If that was my last ski of the season, I'll hang up the skis happy.
Oil is good, grease is better.
