|Still Some Untracked Snow|
|Tracked Snow Later in the Day|
The post lunch runs were more difficult with the tired legs and the deep snow now chopped up into variable mounds on most of the slopes. Some untracked edges were still available for variety and if one wanted to one slope had been groomed. Because I have skied groomers for all this season, I never had a desire to go to the groomer.
I can't help but put in a plug for the Toggenburg management and their employees. They are the most friendly, helpful and professional folks that I have encountered at a ski area. And to give us 70+ year olds free skiing is extremely generous. Although the lodge is not an upscale environment, the food is great and very reasonably priced. For example a large coffee for $1.50. If you are not into the cafeteria fare, the Foggy Goggle restaurant has an excellent menu and quality food. I have skied there enough to be recognized and welcomed by the regulars and the staff. In a way today was like a homecoming since I skied there about 30 days a year for several years.

It was a great change of pace day as well as a bonus day with so much great ungroomed powder for the East. I'll need to make another visit soon and hopefully bring along some of the TOGS from my home ski area.
