ARP Posted January 16, 2019 Share Posted January 16, 2019 Predictions are that it might be substantial, about time, have only had dustings so far this year. I broke out the skis and made my way off to the closest ski area to get in an afternoon of fun. I have not been out in almost 2 seasons. I started off kinda slow and then got acquainted again with my gear and my form came back and by the end of the day I was doing waaaay better than I thought I might be. The last time I was out that I recall was Bristol Mountain NY. I have been there as a spectator many times, and every time I look at that mountain it looks to me like a steep sheet of ice with little snow on top of the ice. So the one time I bought a ticket and gave it a shot, that was exactly what it was. My knees were screaming after 5 minutes trying to hold my speed from run away, turns on ice are no fun at all, the snow boarders had pushed most of the snow off of the ice base so it was all piled up on the sides, so you would go from trying to control speed to trying to keep balance after hitting a big pile of snow. I recall doing a few head over skis falls and had enough of that crap and called it a day before I got hurt. Forget form, it was survival mode. Possibility I might be driving in it on a charter to DC on friday. 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
