We stayed at Supreme for a number of runs, riding the singles line and talking to tourists. Alf's was not crowded at lunch because people were sitting outside on the deck, enjoying the sunshine. After lunch, we went into Devil's Castle for a couple of runs. The snow, which was so good last weekend, had toughened up a bit during the week, making it harder to turn. When we moved back to the groomers, they were pretty well skied off: I hit a scratchy patch right under the Sugarloaf chair, spinning myself around and somehow managing to keep upright and scoring a "nice save!" shout-out from someone on the lift.
Back in the Castle again
We went around the EBT to do some runs off of the Collins lift. The conditions were about the same there and by 2:45 p.m. we called it quits. We really need snow. It's amazing to think that we have not yet done any runs in the Wildcat trees or Yellow Trail or the Supreme Bowl or in the trees beneath the Castle Apron. There just hasn't been enough snow. Fingers crossed that the weather pattern changes soon - I'm getting bored with groomers.
