The attitude.  Everything slows down.    All the temporary workers are
gone.  The dream team is operating the place.  All the directors of this
and that.
The conditions are demanding and the lift ride is fast, so there's plenty
of time for rest stops.  There are a lot of long conversations with people
who you never really get to talk to.
The guy flipping burgers is a retired Marine who has skied many days at Mt.
Washington and he has all the stories that come with that.  The gentleman
scanning your ticket is the director of marketing.  The guy running the
lift used to operate a bulldozer in NY before becoming head of lift
maintenance.  That woman over there has a daughter who went to the
Olympics.  After speaking with a ski instructor you find out that he's a
retired judge.
The mountain attracts unique personalities.  You really get to enjoy that
in the spring.
