Just another nice day.

Not a lot of new snow at Eldora this week - just a few inches. But surfaces were skiing quite nice since it's been cold all week until today when it warmed up to near freezing. We started with a strong breeze (also known as SOP for Eldora). Just hitting many cruiser runs across all the different lifts, but mostly on the frontside.

At one point my wife suggested we ski one of the glades (first time for Jr in a true glade) and of course with irony she was the one who fell, not Jr. We ended with several laps in the terrain park (uh-oh, might need to speed up those plans for race team participation, lol). With Jr hitting a couple of the XS features each lap.

Just a very nice day to be on the hill and Jr was skiing the fastest ever and even almost parallel skiing at times on the lower intermediates.

This was 100% uncrowded all season until today... Lower Diamond back in the IP lift zone.

Apparently a few 'bones' are showing in this spot...

It happens to the best of us... Jr helps mom in the glades.
