Went up to Vermont today with Jeremy and Jewlz to ski it if we could. The best part about the snow at Mad River is that it is all natural snow that fell from the sky and most of the terrain is ungroomed. Today conditions were good but not great. The lower half of the mountain had received some rain recently so it was pretty hard snow, and where the snow was soft it had a breakable crust. The upper half of the mountain was softer dryer snow with a little bit of freshies available here and there.
It was overcast all day with the upper mountain in the clouds but enough sunlight was able to get through to soften up the bottom half in the afternoon. We had a ton of fun.

This was the first chance Jewlz has had to ski this year, so she was pretty tired out by 2 o’clock. After Jewlz quit Jeremy and I went up top to ski some of the steeper stuff thats in the trees. It was pretty challenging for me to ride the steep bumps on the fat powder skis (Icelantic Nomads), but I enjoyed the challenge.Normally I have a hard time deciding if I should ski or ride but today my mind was made up for me
