Ho, ho, ho. Thanks, Santa! The jolly fat man has delivered an early gift for skiers, snowboarders, snowshoers, and snowmobilers. A BIG gift.
When I skied the ‘Loaf on Saturday, I was amazed at the amount of terrain and the conditions, but now, oh my! Just talked with my friend Deb, who was motoring up the access road. Yup, 28 inches of powder. The whole mountain should be open, and the skiing and riding will be superb. And I’m stuck on the coast unable to even find the car in the driveway–it’s covered with a drift. With more snow predicted later in the week, it’s going to be a white Christmas and a glorious vacation week. Oh, and over at Sunday River, the new chondola lift has made its debut.
If I’d had the forethought to bring my gear back with me, I’d be heading over to the Camden Snow Bowl on opening day, Wednesday Dec. 24., for some ski and sea.
