Friday Ski Club was not very well attended today. I hit MRG for two
solo runs -- my sidekick Rusty had the sniffles and stayed home.

Marc said it all:

See my MRG report from Wednesday. Maybe even a few more rocks
showing. The "snow showers" predicted for the next few days won't
alter the situation much. Still, I probbaly go back tomorrow, for
lack of anything better to do.

That was the deal last week -- same with Starr, Nosedive -- although
they probably blew some snow on Upper Nose dive. And for the record,
the runout isn't all that flat -- but it certainly is short.

I won't get a chance to get back to Stowe before the 1st.
