First ski day of the new decade was a pretty standard Schweitzer affair.
Early fog sent us to the back side where we cruised groomers in good visibility and played in trees off Gladiator. By late morning the fog was lifting and we moved to the front bowls for some steep black diamond groomers and excursions into the softening crud.
For the afternoon, the delights lay on the somewhat amazingly steeply groomed runs off the Ridge into Lakeside Bowl. There were about as many people on the mountain as beers at a Mormon wedding, meaning there was still corduroy to be had. Fast and furious stuff.
We bailed soon after 3pm as home and a new work week called. Like I said earlier, a fairly standard Schweitzer ski day, and why it’s one of my favorite places to ski.
