Glades GladesThe NRO glade off the Winslow chairlift was the day's most challenging run and a lot of fun in the afternoon in alternating sunlight and shadows. The trail is signed "Experts Only," and that's because of the narrowness of the trail, not its steepness. This is great old-school New England skiing. Enjoy!
Moguls MogulsA few on Juicer, Upper Thomas, and Jug Handle. The Jug Handle moguls were the most fun.

Run of the Day Run of the DayPost Doc. Great snow conditions in the afternoon on an ungroomed run.
Food and Beverage Food and BeverageChicken caesar salad and a Coke for $15.50. Such is the reality of ski-resort pricing. The salad was decent and filling, however.
Comments CommentsVery crowded parking lot due to a race on the Worden Schuss, which was closed to recreational skiing. Too bad: Worden is often the best run of the day at the Skiway. But the big crowd was mostly families watching the racers. Lift lines were zero or next to it.

Fine skiing all day on the groomed and ungroomed runs. As the day warmed up, the ungroomed Post Doc and Cum Laude became great fun.

As noted by rocket21, Herman's Highway was in terrific condition and a great ski in the morning.

There are still a few bare or scratchy spots showing, and after today's and tomorrow's warm weather there will be more. Wednesday and Thursday's predicted 8-10 inch snowfall may take care of the issues.

Morning skiing comprised terrific mid-winter conditions -- and it was huge fun skiing with rocket21. Afternoon skiing was very spring-like in 50-degree temperatures; some skiers were in t-shirts. By 2 p.m. the snow was beginning to soften into ice cream, so I called it a day.
