After a middling snow season, the Vermont Green Mountains received on the upper slopes in excess of 20 inches of fine powder on Saturday night. This was followed by a perfectly blue day on February 26th, and I spent about four hours skiing the slopes and the woods at Sugarbush with hardly a break, an almost frantic pent-up enthusiasm.
My son did the same thing with his ski camp, leading a number of forays into very steep, advanced wooded sectors. The effect of all the bright sun, cool air, and hard downhill skiing was a kind of knackered inspiration. Great day!
