Helpful Ski Patrol upselling cheeseburgers
We did three runs through the gates into Sugarloaf where we pretty much had the place to ourselves: the run-around to Supreme (just to say hi), down Extrovert and a cruiser down Devil's Elbow. We hit the Ballroom, which was very nice, and even ventured out into Sunspot. As the day wore on, I stuck to the groomed runs more and more, trying to save my legs which tire easily in the heavy spring conditions.

For our entertainment, there were guys hitting a jump off the bottom of Nina's Curve/Schuss Gully, in full view of the chairlift and the patio. It was pretty impressive - under flips, mute grabs, tail grabs, 270s, 360s and back flips - and most of them stuck their landings. Lots of fun to watch.
Gorgeous day out over Devil's Castle
We skied until 4 p.m., getting a lot of runs since we never had to wait in line for the lift, then had a beer on the patio, soaking up more of that great spring sunshine. Skiing powder is great ... but spring skiing is really a lot of fun too and we'd just had a very good day of it.
