Another Spring Skiing Day -New Skis Arrive

Another day of bright sunshine and spring conditions. Several geezers showed up today even though the ski report for Greek Peak lacked a comment about grooming. Fortunately for the early morning there was limited grooming on the main slopes and later in the day the other surfaces softened to corn snow. Snow is rapidly disappearing so it will be a stretch to be skiing next week.

Had a great day chatting with Larry M. as we skied the requisite more than 10 runs to be an official day. The conditions demanded stamina for the legs and by 12:30 PM we were ready to go to other things.

I had a busy afternoon spring cleaning my car. Discovered manure on the roads to GP had attached to the undercarriage of my car so it had a smelly job of removing it.

Happiness is new skis and my recent purchase of Rossignol Avenger Carbon 82 skis arrived via Fed Ex this afternoon. Assembled and set the bindings and I am looking forward to trying them out tomorrow. Larry and I were able to list about ten reasons why I should get new skis. Some were pretty wild. Anyway, I have skied my old skis over 350 days so it must me time for a change.
