My Tally:


MRG – 1

Vail – 4

MtSnow – 42


Days off piste - 1 – ½ at mrg, the other half over the entire season at




An underwhelming season, to no surprise, also the lowest in total in a
number of years.  Though given how dicey the weather was, the piste
conditions at MtSnow were surprisingly good on a consistent basis.  At least
they have that going for them.


Highlight of the season, except for the kids demanding a trip to MRG (I must
be raising them right!), was the trip to vail.  The first family ski trip
out west, a reward and incentive for the kids participation in the ski
program.  The size of everything overwhelmed them, it was fun to live the
new ski experience through them.  Pouring over the trail maps, picking the
days routes to ensure they hit each and every black diamond.  Just being
jazzed to go out and ski, their enthusiasm was infectious.   It was later
funny to try and convince them that skiing Prima at vail, without
hesitation, was a more difficult run than than  Ripcord at Mt.Snow, which
they eventually conqured as well.


Here’s hope for an even better next season.
