Sugar Bowl skied splendiferously today.  Carvable groomers and slushy bumps dominated the day and each was eloquently served via a different chairlift.

The Lincoln chair was dishing up fast, carvable groomers while the Disney chair offered soft, rhythmic, slushy bumps.

Lincoln was a blast in the morning as everyone was dropping in, making a few turns, airing the cat track, then speeding away down the meat of the run.  It made for a great lap and it was highly entertaining to see the moves people were pulling off.  I’d never exactly seen an “Iron Cross Back Scratcher” before.  Thanks for the aerial education, Justin.

Disney was great all day as the East Face harbored small, well spaced bumps that stayed soft and slpashy.  

The weather was mild today with temperatures in the 60s and light wind.  As the heat of the day rolled in around 1 or 2pm, some of the flat spots were a bit sticky, but it was easy to learn how to avoid them and keep charging.

The "Spread Eagle Crotch Grab" was resorted to today.

Sugar Bowl will be celebrating its final weekend of operations this weekend.  It’s lining up to be a fun weekend.

Oh, and if you buy a season pass for next year, you can ski free this weekend.  A nice bonus.
