Mt Ellen - 2016-03-17

Sat Mar 26, 2016 8:14 am

St Patricks Day - $17 lift tickets. Spring conditions with early morning cloud/mist burning off to warm, sunny skies by 11am. Snow soft & granular with bare patches keeping you on your toes. Still, for $17 I'm not about to complain, especially with ski-on lifts. (Original plan was to ski MRG next door for the same price but unfortunately they're done for the season.)

Got a new skiing experience on the day - first time in 40+ years skiing that I had to wait on lifts temporarily closed due to danger of lightening. Got "graupel" snow as the clouds passed just after lunch - better than rain!
