Zero to 16
So Whitegrass http://www.whitegrass.com/report.html had zero snow two days ago but just received a nice deep batch of the goods yesterday and last night. No skiing, to skiing in 24 hours. I was surfing around the web last night and saw a thread on Tele tips about skiing in the DC area. Almost everybody panned it, but there were a few that got it right. Whitegrass kicks ass. It is not about the vert, it is not about the snow depth, it is not about the nubmer of kilometers or the grooming. It is about the spirit and the passion and the people and Whitegrass has more of that than anywhere and it could be due to the feast or famine position it is in in regards to snow. All I know is that on Friday I am boarding a jet plane with Margaret for a party hillbilly style and it is going to be a ski to remember.
