Lift rides provided a chance to observe the different characters on the slope and to take a closer look at unusual sights. Regrettably we did see a skier who had crashed on the side of the Alceme slope near a tree under chair 1A. The Ski Patrol was called to carry him down the slope. At least he was conscious and it looked like a leg injury. Earlier in the day I saw him really burning up the slope at very high speed. He was a good skier who pushed the envelope beyond the limit.
We also had a chance to observe someones art on one of the trees to the right of the lift. See the photo below. I don't know who it looks like but it gets your attention.
Andy and I documented our presence on the slopes with mutual photos to record for history a beautiful spring skiing day at Greek Peak. Who knows how long it will last? Fewer and fewer skiers are coming out so I doubt whether it is profitable to stay open much longer. I guess it is time for the geezers to ramp up for golf, tennis, biking or other summer activities.
