I headed off to Stowe at the early hour of noon.  Conditions were much
more how I remember early season.  The flatter parts were perfect
packed powder.  The steeper parts were a solid sheet of ice, with far
too few piles of soft snow here and there.  At least the ice kept the
crowds down.  I felt much more on my game today than the first day I
went out.  My thought is that the crowding issue was the big one.  I'm
too concerned with getting in other people's way, so I don't take
enough space for myself, or get in a rhythm.  Today, with less people
out there, I was able to feel like I knew what I was doing again.

6 runs, left at 3:00

The views were amazing today.  You didn't have to wonder if that was
Mount Washington off to the east (or a cloud).  It was so nice to see
all that white out there, too.  Some skier laid down a clean,
aggressive line on upper upper liftline - a line I wouldn't take
mid-season.  I only saw the tracks, not the person that did it.
