Good Friday Indeed
With this afternoon looking like the only good weather of the weekend, I decided to skip the free beer and food offered by the CS dept here at Dartmouth and head out for some corn harvesting at the Snowbowl with Krysta. When we showed up to the Snowbowl around 3:20, it was right around 50° and simply beautiful out – quite a change to much of the recent weather in VT, and a stark contrast to my last day out skiing on Mt. Washington. Additionally, the coverage up at the Snowbowl is still incredible. Aside from a few spots, there’s still snow from wall-to-wall.
As we were suiting up, we saw my buddy Jeff, along with his wife Holly, ripping down the Allen. They confirmed that, as I had thought, it was good out there. Really good. Like absolute perfect peel-away corn good . After chatting a bit, we headed up to enjoy the sample the corn for ourselves. After switching over, we skied the headwall of the Allen. And my god, it was just as good as Jeff and Holly told us!

It was spectacular.
What a day!
The corn was highly ripable, as Krysta shows us here.
After skiing the headwall of the Allen, we realized that our time was unfortunately short (especially given how good the skiing was). Too short to take another lap. However, we did have time to skin back to the top and ski the headwall of the Allen again. So we changed over and headed back up for a bit more skiing.
Ready to head back up again and extremely pleased to be doing such fine skiing in late April.
I too like to ski corn (pics of me obviously by Krysta).
This was just so much fun.
Spraying up all the corn.
And ripping fast, right to Krysta’s tracks from the previous run.
After this, we skied it out, and fast – the corn was truly ripable. It would have been nice to have stayed longer, but alas real life calls at times. Luckily, it doesn’t call too often and allows me to get out on days like this!
