Four of us went to redeem our Warren Miller vouchers at Sugarbush Friday.4-6" of fresh fluff. Just 2 lifts (Super Bravo and Heaven's Gate). Great conditions. No crowds.Skied well with 1 pole, though I stayed out of the trees and stuck to the open slopes and concentrated on perfect form. No option to fall, so played it very safe and had a blast. My friends did ski in the woods though and found lovely powdershots. I was just happy to be out there on the mountain.I had a badass moment on Ripcord. While stopped on the trail 2 friendly retired guys asked what happened to my pole and I told them about my 2 week old broken wrist. They said "you know this is a double black diamond you are skiing"I replied "yes it is, and I've got skillz" and I took off nailing the moguls and powder below.Restoring confidence felt so great. I was ready for a Saturday at Killington.
