The snow was much better than yesterday, it looks like they got 
more of the light variety which made for better woods skiing.  The upper 
mountain now has over a foot of powder and there may be more on the way. 
I don't think the powder will stay to the weekend, but coverage is great 
and with warmer temps, the weekend will be great anyway.  The snow 
was still pretty wet on the lower mountain, but the groomed trails there 
were in superb shape.  We skied chute #2 of 2 chutes, plenty of cover  
Upper Starr and Upper Goat were open too, but with only two hours to ski, 
you gotta do what you can.  Top temp was like 22 in the morning and it 
got warmer as time went by.  A few flakes were falling as well.

Here it is: It's official...

The 7th annual Broken Rib World Tour and Bump Madness Spring Ski 
Extravaganza !

Place:  The Big K, Killington, K-Mart, McSki, Killi-fairway, the south 9, etc

Date:  May 11th...Saturday

Time: as soon as you get there...

Food, drinks etc will all be there.  Look for the Red Toyota Redneck 
Boom-Truck parked near the lift if all goes well...  A gas ghrill will be 
available, so if you don't like burgers or Dogs, bring you're own and 
cook 'em up.

This is always a hoot of a time and the skivittles crowd always adds to 
the trip.  Hope to see you there!

E-mail me at [log in to unmask] to let me know if you're gonna be 
there and I'll keep you updated on all the pertinent information.  
Tele-boyz, boarders and alpiners are all welcome.  Usually it is held on 
Superstar because that is all that is open, but given the endless winter 
that could be different.

(my editor won't let me back up again, so add superstar to the "lift" 
mentioned above)


OH yeah... and Tele-girls....

Hope to see you all there!
